    Application Details

    I interviewed through other source. The process took 5 days - interviewed at York University.

    Interview Details

    Had to call a number, leave a message answering a few questions that had been outlined in the answering machine message. I received a call a few days later to come in for an interview. I was asked simple interview questions like how would you handle a difficult call. I had a lot of experience doing over the phone jobs so the questions were very easy to answer. After I answered the questions I was asked to go into the lab and read out a paragraph and few questions while the interviewer listened in. We then went back to the office and she gave me an offer of employment. I was given the training days/times and my start date.

    Interview Questions
    • Just questions regarding difficult phone situations, how to calm people down over the phone.   View Answer
