Call Center Agent Interview

Call Center Agent
Memphis, TN

I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Sitel in April 2012.

Interview Details – Sitel has recruiters who contact you via email. Once you've gone through the assessments they set up a phone interview which is rather detailed, something comparable to the STAR method. You're asked several situational questions regarding customer service situations. The interviewer is typing as you answer. I was asked about 10 of these questions. Be as detailed as possible.

Interview Question – Dealing with customers who are in unsafe situations.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There isn't any negotiation.

Difficult Interview

Marketing Interview

Marketing
Nashville, TN

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Sitel.

Interview Details – The hiring and interview process was quite cumbersome and plagued by bad communication. After an initial phone interview with HR, I met with the hiring manager. In my opinion, Sitel is very insular and believes that anyone without experience in their particular industry is not right for the organization. I found the initial interview to put me on the defensive about my experience, skills and ability to succeed in the role. I was brought back to meet with several other executives, which was a slightly more positive experience. Then there was no communication for 30+ days, after which I was asked to prepare, on very short notice, an extensive plan and presentation--not for a hypothetical situation, but a very real dilemma they are facing. I balked at being asked for what basically boils down to free consulting work and removed myself from consideration. The lack of communication for over a month did not work in their favor at all.

Interview Question – Asked to prepare a marketing plan for a very real business problem they are experiencing.   Answer Question

CONTINUOUS PROCESS IMPROVEMENT Interview

CONTINUOUS PROCESS IMPROVEMENT
Ocala, FL

I applied in-person and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Sitel in April 2013.

Interview Details – I applied online which didn't ask for my resume. I showed up and they were eager to interview me. My first interview was 30 minutes. My second was 2 hours. My THIRD I was there for a 5 hours. There was supposed to be a problem statement already ready but no one was ready. I was given a problem statement and expected to solve the problem which was ridiculously impossible. I was not contacted until 2 weeks after sending emails to follow up. I asked for feedback and was told I did great and I was to shortly speak with the regional manager. I did't hear from them for 3 weeks. I emailed several times with no response. I called when I saw the job requisition back online. I called the director and he said I was still in the race and no news is no news. I haven't called them since. That was 2 months ago.

Interview Question – Salary expectation. Industry Standard is 75K-95K and they were offering high 60s that included bonuses. I wasn't prepared to get a job offer that low.   View Answer
