    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at People's United Bank (Bridgeport, CT) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online through Company Website, received an email 2 days later to set up Interview. Interview went great, Background Check passed. Credit Check came back with an item that is a result of identity theft, which is currently being disputed (for less than $700.00) Basically, the HR department said I needed to "Clear this up" i.e. pay it off... before they could move forward with the hiring process. This back and forth took 2 weeks. I informed them that I am not paying a charge I am not responsible for, especially when it is in the process of dispute. I decided against joining this company.

    Reasons for Declining

    I declined this position because I had an item on my credit report from identity theft that the HR department wanted me to pay before I could be hired. You apparently need perfect Credit to be a Call Agent.
