    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 daysinterviewed at National Pen Company.

    Interview Details

    Got in contact with National Pen through a recruiter. After reading the job description went to the next stage which was a simple language test consisting of spotting the spelling mistakes and copying the handwritten labels exactly as one sees.

    Since I passed the test, I got a telephone interview some days later. The structure is pretty clear: 1) Criteria Based (Why would we hire you? Give us a good or negative customer service experience) , 2) A small role-play where you face an obvious objection and you still have to push through and finally 3) some Q&A from both sides.

    Interview Questions
    • They asked me multiple times what my personality through different perspective. It was unexpected due the chaotic structure as my interviewer asked me questions during stage 3) while I expect them to be asking that in stage 1)   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at National Pen Company.

    Interview Details

    Interview is very quick and easy, a few questions such as how would you sell something to someone who just ordered or says they are still well stocked & the typical bla bla interview standard (strength, weakness, previous experience), they don't do proper language tests or any kind of tests, you simply have to type hand written labels from order forms into a box and correct a very easy text that has some obvious mistakes everyone can find, interview was like 20min long and they called 10min later and offered me the job
