    Center Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Huntersville, NC
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Jenny Craig (Huntersville, NC) in May 2016.

    Interview

    I was interviewed for one hour by the Market Director of the Carolinas. I came prepared with questions to answer and questions that I wanted to ask. I thought that it gave me good insight into the working environment and what kind of support I could expect from people in higher positions. Throughout the interview I felt that present emplyees were guided and supported in their positions. I felt that I would be supported as well. My las job had little to no guidelines, support or much of anything else in place so hearing this was quite refreshing to say the least. I left with a very good feeling about my interview and my potential for hire with a company with a great history nationwide.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Jenny Craig (Carlsbad, CA) in September 2015.

    I first spoke with a recruiter and had a phone interview where I was asked basic questions and then they scheduled me for an in-person interview a few days later. I went through about 30 minutes of questions and they walked me through the call center and described the various positions there. I also read through a sample script over the phone with the interviewer so they could hear how I sounded over the phone since it is a call center. I received a call a few days later offering me the position.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Jenny Craig (Atlanta, GA) in January 2009.

    Interview

    The initial interview consists of a telephone interview which is done by a customer service telephone representative. They ask you basic questions in the "tell me about a time" realm. The focus is customer service questions. The next interview is with the facility manager. The main focus is role playing with the interviewer and answering questions about how you handled past situations. Good eye contact, body language and verbal communication skills are key at this point. The final interview is with the Area Manager and then they offer you an hourly wage so low you will feel like you are back in grade school asking for a summer job.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about a time when you offered exceptional customer service   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    You could always try to negotiate. You will be offered a low hourly wage and the promise of a better wage via your sales commission which will initally be about $3.50 on every $100.00
