    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Xerox (East Portland, OR) in November 2014.

    Interview

    No receptionist at front lobby desk. You enter into a lobby where you are greeted by a sign that says call extension number...When you call, someone tells you to pick up a "clipboard" and fill out the existing sheet. An unfriendly staff member comes to the lobby after a while and takes you to a training room where you get on an old Klunky Dell computer for testing..headset so large it continued to fall off my head......problems with testing software program; . after the testing, I was met by a girl who said " you were a few keystrokes off" "so I am sorry, you do meet the "fast" track expected by our client....I laughed right in her face.(no kidding, I couldn't manage their equipment pieces)...NOT ONE PERSON IN HR ever spoke to me. I am an experienced (6 years) call center manager where I hired, coached and trained call center employees and I was highly insulted by this company.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Xerox (Portland, OR) in October 2014.

    Interview

    There are 2 current processes with applying for their call center positions. Online and sometimes during large hiring they allow walk ins.
    There are some general computer tests they have you take to make sure you understand the world of customer service (pretty easy) and then they have you take an audio test where you listen to scenarios and answer questions based upon what you heard (take notes and write small)
    Lastly they have you take a 1 and 3 minute typing test. They are looking for around 30-35wpm, I averaged 65 so that wasn't too much of a concern.
    If you pass all of those then you move onto the first interview which is mainly them going over your resume and ask a few scenario question (ie how would you handle an upset customer)
    If you seem like a fit after they explain the position then you meet with a supervisor of the account you are in line for.
    That interview is pretty much the same as the first however they have more info on the account you would be working with so ask questions.
    If both interviewers give you the thumbs up you get offered the job on the spot and setup for a drug and background test.

    Interview Questions

    • none, they were pretty standard scenario questions.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    flat rate take it or leave it. there is possibilities for added hourly rate if you make your goals

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Xerox (Wilsonville, OR) in December 2013.

    Interview

    The contact I made with Xerox was friendly and very communicative. I initially had a phone interview that lasted almost an hour. My interviewer gave me a timeline for hearing back from them and then promptly followed that to a tee. I was invited for an on-site interview that included lunch and a manufacturing tour. I interviewed with 3 pairs of people, ate lunch with them and took a tour of the facility. They were very nice and relaxed during all three of the interviews.

    Interview Questions

    • I was handed a P&ID and asked to tell them what I was looking at explain what I could about the process.   1 Answer

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Xerox (Tigard, OR) in May 2013.

    Interview

    The process began at a job fair. Was invited in the next day for an interview. Completed the application online in their office and then took an assessment test. Interviewed with an HR rep with just some very basic questions. She told me she'd like to have me interview with a hiring manager. Waited maybe 10 minutes for second interview. Was walked through the phone center - yep, looked like command central. Looked like it was an enjoyable place to work and the employees are allowed to have a little fun (so important in this type of job setting). Second interview went well. Behavioral interview type of questions. Was told on the spot that I would be recommended for hire. Back to the recruiting office, back in with the same HR rep. Was offered a job. Pay is not great, honestly, the biggest detractor, by FAR. I asked for some time to consider it. It's a big company with (I would expect) lots of opportunity for upward mobility and with it, increased pay. The training offered sounds very good. The tracking of your time from minute to minute is interesting. Potentially high pressure to perform quantity over quality. Still considering it...almost out of time though. Hard to walk away from a job in this economy, even with very low pay.

    Interview Questions

    • Again, behavioral style questions. Don't recall exactly but something akin to "tell me about a time when you contributed to a team" or "tell me about a time when you did a really good job for a customer and how you felt about it"   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    Still thinking, but honestly the ONLY reason for declining is the very low pay. This would be an excellent job for someone just starting out in this industry and ready to work their way up.
