    Customer Care Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Wayne, NJ
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Wayne, NJ
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at GAF.

    Interview Details

    Soon after applying (possibly because of my employee referral,) I was contacted by an admin assistant in HR to schedule a screening call with a human resources rep. The phone screening was short and sweet, and I enjoyed our conversation over the phone. They scheduled me for an interview a few days later. The "interview" consisted of a skills test- verbal, math, and applied math. Pretty easy. I then met with the HR rep for a few minutes, and interviewed with three managers in the department.

    Interview Details

    Talked to a recruiter at my university career fair. From there I was invited to dinner with several other potential interviewees. Two days later I received a call notifying me I had been selected to fly out to one of their plants for an extended interview. The interview was in a round robin format, with eight potential co-ops having eight 15 minute interviews each. The interviewers used the STAR format (situation, task, action, result)

    Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Wayne, NJ
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Wayne, NJ
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at GAF.

    Interview Details

    First a phone interview, then a day of several 1-on-1 interviews with HR and managers.
    They're all behavioral questions.
    There seemed to be a lack of communication amongst those involved which drew out the process to be longer than necessary.
    Afterwards there was even less communication and follow-up.
    so, there was few women and even less POC.

    Interview Questions
    • None were hard but be prepared to be asked the same ones over and over. Have your answers thought out and prepared.   Answer Question
