    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at PR Newswire.

    Interview

    After a brief and friendly phone interview, I was invited to a face to face interview. The recruiter emailed me several brochures and powerpoints about the company, interview tips and career guidance. It was all very formal and professional. I studied, did the research and was very prepared and well dressed. Imagine my surprise when I arrived and was interviewed by two 22 year olds in their hoodies and jeans. The interview lasted over an hour and a half and was soooo repetitive. I imagine they do that on purpose to see if you can handle the repetitiveness of the job. It was grueling and boring. It was also insightful by showing myself that I cannot tolerate the youngsters, the call center work, or the unprofessional company that they represent.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked me questions about customer service skills. How I handle mad customers, How I handle stress, the usual behavior based questions.   Answer Question
