Customer Service Representative Interview

Customer Service Representative
Baltimore, MD

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Labor Ready in October 2012.

Interview Details – The hiring process took a few weeks, but I personally thought that was a good thing, because they took the time to get to know me and to make sure I was a good fit for the company and that the company was a good fit for me. I got to do an observation during the Branch busy time (morning dispatch) and that was a great experience. I interviewed with the Branch Manager first, then the Corporate HR representative, then met with the Disrict Manager on 2 different occassions. They really took the time to make sure I was the right person for the job

Interview Question – I had no difficult or unexpected questions from any of my interview process   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I was able to negotiate my wage at a very fair price. Although this is not always the case, depends on how much experience you have and the first impressions you make.
