    Customer Service Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at HSBC Canada.

    Interview Details

    First received a call (initial phone interview). Purpose of the call is for the interviewer to access language ability and phone skills (since this was for a call center job). Then, a 1-1 interview was scheduled with the manager. Since this is an entry level job, they weren't too concerned about prior or technical knowledge. Their focus is on personality, whether you have common sense and attitude towards work.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    Because this was an entry level job, there wasn't much negotiation as I lack that experience. However, the manager was attentive and was able to answer all the questions that I had.
