Customer Service Representative Interview

Customer Service Representative
Pensacola, FL

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at West Corporation in May 2014.

Interview Details – My personal opinion of the interviewing process is that they don't even bother to read your application or resume. If you apply online you still have to go in and tell them every place you've world and how long, answer questions about taking drug tests and background checks, as well as if you can work in the country..stuff that they could have gathered had they even bothered to read the application. The girl doing the interview was reading off of a sheet and talking a mile a minute and when I asked her a question she was so thrown off by not sticking to her script that she couldn't even answer my question without confusing me even more.
I thought the interview process was a joke. I found out after I came in for an interview that I wasn't eligible which they would've gotten from even attempting to read my application or resume.

Interview Question – They didn't ask anything other than basic application questions.   Answer Question

Interview Details – pretty much very simple, its better to apply at the hr office, that way ur packet will be reviewed and you will be interviewed. The interview is intense but they don't leave u wondering if u passed or failed, u will get to know right away if ur moving forward to meet with the supervisors u will be working with who will determine if u are a good fit for the project

Interview Question – its not anything extra ordinary, may be you may be asked to describe a time you worked with someone you didnt get along with, what you did.   Answer Question

Subject Matter Expert Interview

Subject Matter Expert

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at West Corporation in February 2010.

Interview Details – Application and interview can be done on the spot. West is almost always hiring (literally). Application can take 30 minutes to an hour and there are computers available at the hiring office or at west.com/careers. After application, you take a test on reading, writing, arithmetic (20 minutes). After reviewing test scores the interviewer will see you either immediately or within the hour (depending on how busy). They will ask your schedule and based on that offer you a position with one of the client companies.

Once you have agreed on the client company, you may have to take an additional test that is specific to that company which is usually small taking about 10 minutes.

If you don't pass that test, you will be offered another client company, etc.

If you pass you go to second interview.

Usually work begins the following Monday but can be as long as a few weeks before a training class is open.

If you agree to a temporary position, you will work the agreed time for that position and West will always do a good job of putting you into something permanent when it comes around.

Interview Question – They ask a lot of questions that are specific to explaning a similar situation or interaction with a customer where you went out of your way or helped them in some way. A lot of customer service questions (obviously.) The hardest one is about if you ever had a confrontation at work and how did you handle it or if you have ever disagreed with a customer, etc.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Negotiation of salary was not possible because the client had a base starting pay that was not negotiable.

DirecTV (Showtime) Interview

DirecTV (Showtime)
San Antonio, TX

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at West Corporation in April 2014.

Interview Details – Applied online. Called in the next morning. 127 question assessment test. Interview w/ HR person. Offered 2 different positions. 2nd interview w/ supervisor.

Interview Questions

  • During the 127 question assessment there are a few math based word problems, or require referencing a chart in order to solve the problem.   View Answer
  • Describe the most competitive person you know and why?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – I did not make an attempt, but inquired about other positions that paid more. Positions w/ other clientele were available but required drug screening, additional interviews & more extensive background checks, training, licensing or no open positions were available at the moment. I was just looking to get my foot in the door and did not want to bite off more than I could chew at this phase of my life. The HR person and supervisor suggested I move up within the company after 6 months

Customer Service Sales Support Interview

Customer Service Sales Support
Tulsa, OK

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at West Corporation in November 2013.

Interview Details – The company representative asked about ten questions, mostly surrounding a willingness to assist customers and peers. Later, I learned that this is more of an Account Management position, than a customer service position.

Interview Question – In the face of knowing now that this is an account management position, the question about having to describe a technical issue to a customer, seems archaic.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – When I tried to negotiate, I was told that they don't negotiate.
