    Interview Details

    When you first get there they take you to the call floor.. They'll sit you next to a seasoned agent and let you listen in on a few of their calls to let you get a feel for the job your interviewing for. Then after about 30-45 minutes they'll take you to an office and ask you some questions. It's pretty easy going for the most part, they ask you about any of your previous work experience that would benefit you in a call center environment. They'll also ask you what skills that you have that qualify you for the position. Then finally they'll ask you to do some role play. The interviewer will pretend to be a disgruntled customer calling in and you have to try and calm them down.. It's inparitive that you don't break character. All they really want to see is how you handle it. Obviously their not looking for a by the book resolution. They just need to know you can keep calm and be professional. If you got the job then they will literally tell you right after the role playing. Basically just breath and be friendly. The way you interact with the interviewer depends a lot on how they feel you'll interact with members on the phone.

    Interview Details

    The first interview was a short meet and greet but management makes you feel very relaxed so you tend to leave feeling optimistic. The second interview was great the manager had me "play" ring a customer and we took turns perfecting it. I was very at ease and genuinely laughing during my second interview.

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Sears.

    Interview Details

    Campus Interview for 1 hour; Two guys there, the first man was very friendly but the second was kind of rude and impolite anyway. Not sure why they would send someone with terrible communication skills and hiring knowledge. Half hour for either of them.Questions in first talk were unbelievable easy but then I met the second guy who is doing coding things in the company. Basically they use Java in Sears.

    Interview Details

    I applied Online . I was called back within the week . Interview went smoothly and was not intimidating at all. I was told they would call me back for a second interview that day or next day. No call, so I called back myself and scheduled my second interview. The interview was very laid back. Im not sure if it went smoothly for me because I prepared and anticipated most of all of the questions.
