Customer Care Professional Interview

Customer Care Professional
Van Buren, AR

I applied in-person - interviewed at Experian in January 2013.

Interview Details – Got a call from HR. Did phone interview, which is pretty easy. They ask you how you would sell them something and how you would navigate a customer to a website. If you pass they send you an email with a test you must pass. If you pass they schedule a 2nd interview which is basic interview questions. At last if you pass that interview then you will be scheduled for orientation.

Interview Question – Explain a time you went "above and beyond" at a job.   Answer Question

Business Implementation Analyst Interview

Business Implementation Analyst
Allen, TX

I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Experian.

Interview Details – The first call was from HR. They did a screen of my skills based on my resume. Next they set up a phone interview with the hiring manager and a Senior Business Implementation Analyst. The interviewers were in Chile and the only drawback was that the call seemed to have a delay.

The interview was solely behavioral. Questions were typical, so if you prep you should be fine. E.g. Tell us about a time when you had to go with a change you did not agree with. How did you handle it?

After this interview the recruiter called to setup a second interview, however shortly after I got an email stating that this position was being put on hold for budget reasons.

Interview Question – Nothing was difficult. As with all behavioral interviews, give yourself a moment to choose the best example from your experience.   Answer Question

Inside Sales Analyst Position Interview

Inside Sales Analyst Position
Schaumburg, IL

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Experian in June 2013.

Interview Details – I researched their company (located in Dublin) applied through their job board on the above position that was located in IL. The recruiter called me to set up a phone interview, and eventually left a message, as she was located in Phoenix, and was the talent recruiter for three states, IL, TX, and NJ. The phone interview was for 1/2 hour, and her questions were forthright and high level to answer succinctly. During the interview, she mentioned that there was a base and commission salary if you hit certain criteria during the year on outside accounts.

Interview Question – When I pressed further on the commissions attached to the position, which was not listed on the online application, she was a bit abrupt interrupting me that this was listed. The position that I applied for was Inside Sales Analyst position, not the Inside Sales Account Executive positions that were posted two weeks later in early June.   View Answer
