    Customer Service Agent Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Moline, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Moline, IL
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at KONE in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was referred to this company twice within one year, through 2 different temp agencies. Each time was scheduled with the same interviewer, and each time I had to wait over an hour for someone to come and get me when it was convenient for them. The first interview was a denial, and I was not given an answer as to why, other than I wasn't a good fit. I have almost 10 years in call center/customer service experience. The second time, the excuse was because they thought I wasn't interested in the shift hours provided, when I clearly expressed that I was.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at KONE.

    Interview Details

    Interview held by two IT managers. They expected a lot of experience but unfortunately reacted haughty when I shared work experience in the area they didn't fully understand.
    Question asked the most during the interview is what I would do if projects need to be delivered under strict deadlines but nobody helping or can help. They tried to discuss that scenario few times from a number of angels that I had very strong feeling something is not right in their IT department.
    In the end I didn't get the offer, but I have to admit this is one of those cases when you better decline yourself.

    Graduate Engineer Trainee-Mechanical Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Mumbai (India)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Mumbai (India)
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at KONE in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied through campus placements. They first had a pre-placement talk. After which was the aptitude test. In aptitude there was the technical part(30Q in 45 mins) which was moderate difficulty and included more of definitions and theory and less of sums. After which there was a group discussion. My topic was about the elections as elections are coming up. After which was the HR round. They mainly asked hr questions and were kinda cool people. Just chill out. Its like chatting. Though they do try asking you confusing questions. After which is the final round where they roughly tell you where they would want to put you. In my college they came for
    1. Services
    2. Installation
    3. Sales
    I got removed in the last round as they wanted to put me in sales and i wanted core technical.
    But overall, they seem to be down to earth people and it was fun.

    Interview Questions
    • We dont have place for you in services and installation, so would you want to join sales?   View Answer
    Reasons for Declining

    I have excellent communication skills. And they saw that. And wanted to put me into sales which is not something i wanted to start my career with. So i suggested them not to take me for sales and take me for technical part(Services or installation). So they removed me from the last round :(
