    Client Service Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Atlanta, GA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at First Data (Atlanta, GA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Contacted by a hiring manager who ws cool and very helpful. I was called less than a week after to interview with a Director. Interview went pretty well and I would say was relax. The Director, promised to get back to me after coming back from vacation but unfortunately never did. I called 2 weeks later to find out that an inside employee got the job as probabl a promotion, which is good. I just whish somebody got back to me to tell me my application was not successful. Especially when your applications still says "Unde Review". Unfortunately, some people are simply careless about how you feel when you are desperately seeking for a job. They would rather let you keep hoping until you just forget about it.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at First Data (Atlanta, GA).

    Interview

    Overall, the process went smoothly over a span of 4+ weeks. I received a call from a recruiter in HR asking me if I wanted to have a 1:1 with the Director. The interview was roughly 45 minutes followed by a tour of the office. I was one of the earlier applicants interviewed so a decision wouldn't be made for another two weeks. I received a call a week later from HR saying the Director wanted to bring me on board and provided me with a contingent offer. Went through the background check, drug test, and salary negotiation. Received a call about a week later from HR congratulating me on getting hired.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at First Data (Atlanta, GA) in November 2014.

    Interview

    There was a brief phone interview followed by an in person interview. Clearly they had been interviewing lots of candidates that day; the interviewer was older and seemed to have been reciting the same thing all day. Very little flexibility; the job seemed to be 'here's your territory and your defined sales channel, just work it'. I let them know that, due to the location and sales restrictions, that I wouldn't be pursuing the position.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at First Data (Atlanta, GA) in August 2014.

    Interview

    Applied on company website. Then several days later received an invite to a numerical reasoning test is an adaptive test, this means it is smart! The more questions you answer correctly, the harder it gets until the system is satisfied that it has determined your natural aptitude. This is a common approach to testing in competency >>"BEWARE ROCKET SCIENTIST TEST". Several days later got a call from a "Sr. Recruiter". Talked about my resume same old stuff like any other phone interview nothing out of the norm. Then received and invite to interview on a 1:1 with regional sales manager. Interview went very quick, tell me about yourself business and and he went on to present the companies new product, etc. etc. Noticed H.R. rep at office door ready to move the next candidate through.Left that office with a high level assurance, got to sell yourself in the time they give you. The next day got an e-mail form the regional. E-mail included instructions on what they would need from me to move to the next level. They pretty much wanted me to give them a sixty forecast based on some business models and other information. I deceived to take an offer with another company, instead of moving forward. Company offered allot of perks, off site working, laptop, phone etc. They had a lower then expected base pay however had a nice eight month ramp up.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5+ monthsinterviewed at First Data (Atlanta, GA).

    Interview

    Company recruiter contacted me and we had a good phone interview which was comprehensive. Proceeded to have no less than five on site interviews in five different locations. This was a very senior level position, but they could not find the right fit for my skills. Talked to all the senior execs in the company. Met the new CEO and CIO. Eventually, they were reluctant to extend an offer. They suggested a consulting arrangement for a trial period. I declined.
