    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Countrywide Financial in April 2007.

    Interview

    Interviewed with threee different people, 1 in person & 2 by phone. Overall went fairly smoothly but they required lots of background checks. Had me do a simulation of selling to someone over the phone to check my skill set & competency level. Some tough questions but fair overall. One of the more thorough interview processes I have been through.

    Interview Questions

    • Perform a 45 minute roll-play of trying to sell to a customer over the phone.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Little negotiation ability. The company is set on their salary range which is pretty small.
