    Customer Service Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at IHS (Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia)) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Initially, they called me and did a brief phone interview. They asked me about my background and scheduled an appointment for a real interview. The first round of interview was conducted by 2 local managers and 1 overseas manager. I was applying for German speaking customer representative which required me to prove my German proficiency to the overseas manager. The local managers asked me about my background and reviewed my English proficiency. The interview took about 1 hour long.

    The second interview was about a week later where they asked me to bring in my academic certificates and transcripts. The whole process is very thoroughly documented through email and phone confirmations.

    During the third week, they had called me back to give me a verbal confirmation of an official offer, but they needed the American headquarters to approve the offer they wanted to give me. On the phone, the hiring manager discussed with me about my benefits package. It took about another week before I could finally go in and sign the letter offer.

    After everything, I had to wait another two weeks for my security badge and everything else to be ready before I could official start work.
