    Client Account Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Manulife.

    Interview

    There were 2 phone interviews with the common interview questions and 1 testing and face-to-face interview. Everyone was very nice, welcoming, and friendly.

    For the face-to-face: They brought in a group of applicants and we did writing, math, and literacy assessments. Fairly simple and straightforwards if you could pass a first year Math/English college course and if you have a good command of the English language. You had to draft short professional responses to hypothetical customer scenarios/complaints/issues.

    After that, each of us met with two people from management level who interviewed us.

    Interview Questions

    • As this is a client-facing position, they asked if I had any experience in customer service and to go in-depth about my experiences.   Answer Question
