    Customer Service/Sales Agent - Call Center Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Macy's (Clearwater, FL) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online, was sent an email the following day to set up a phone interview. Phone interview was simple, lasted about 25 mins. You will have to explain what you did at each of your jobs and why you left them. I will list all questions asked in the question section. At the end of the phone interview, I was then offered a 2nd interview in person. We set up a time for the following day. Once at the in person interview, I first had to complete a personality assessment on the computer (about 25 questions about how others would rate you on certain things and how you would rate yourself) and also had to complete 4 simulated calls on the computer with headphones. This part is all done by yourself and takes about 30 mins. I then was brought in for the actual interview. Was told about what the position entails, pay rate and schedule. Asked mostly situational questions and to sell a cup of coffee that wasn't there. Was offered the position at the end of the interview. Had to submit personal information (address, name, social security) about myself on their computer and then was sent a link to choose which clinic I would take my drug test at. Had to pick the clinic while there and had 48 hours from the interview to complete the drug test. It was a urine test.
