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

Interview Details – I applied online and the process took about two weeks, because of my current work schedule. I interviewed October 2013. Before my interview I went in to take assessments, which was pretty much just a basic typing test. The questions were all pretty basic in the interview. There was a portion of it where she asked me to explain certain processes on the computer, which are basic, in detail.

Interview Question – They were all pretty basic interview questions; I was asked to sell her my cell phone and to provide step-by-step instructions for basic computer tasks.   Answer Question

SiriusXM Saves Agent Interview

SiriusXM Saves Agent
Omaha, NE

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

Interview Details – I went to the main office for my initial interview. There was a computer test that had to be taken before you got to speak with the initial interviewer. The test was very easy and did not take long to finish. I spoke with one of the recruiters, picked the hours that I was interested in and asked to do a second interview the same day. I had to do it the following day due to schedule conflicts. I then went to the building where I would actually be working for my second interview. I checked in with security and was told to wait in the break room. Was told that the wait would be fifteen minutes. An hour later, a manager came out to get me for my interview. He was very friendly, and we got along well. It was a very easy interview. I got an offer for the job about thirty minutes after my second interview pending background check.

Interview Question – There was nothing too tricky that was asked. If you want the job, just be able to sell yourself and put yourself on a personal level with whoever is interviewing you. Be confident in your abilities.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There was no negotiation phase

Customer Care Associate Interview

Customer Care Associate

Interviewed at West Corporation

Interview Details – Apply on-site if you want to get hired, the process is a lot faster. They give you a second interview if you qualify. It's not too hard just selling them your phone, and other skill tests as well as telling them about your background. What takes the longest is waiting for a class to start, as there is a long waiting period for open classes.

Interview Question – Its all just your basic interview questions.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – no negotiation. 9.50/hr for training 10/hr after 90 days
