    Customer Service Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Rosemont, IL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Mediterranean Shipping Company (Rosemont, IL).

    Interview

    Walked through call center to back office and waited 30mins. Filled out 2 pages of survey type questions. If that wasn't unprofessional enough, one Asian guy and some European waltzes in as if their God. We go to another office where the foreign guy stands in front of a whiteboard and started drawing a ship, asking me abbreviations of states and how and why I would take cargo where. WTF?!? Again, I applied for CSR. I couldn't help but think "how is this relevant??" and sure enough when I asked, it wasn't. That followed by basic excel questions. Pay sucks, not worth it AT ALL, true definition of lowball!

    Interview

    not hard, just talk about yourself and you need write down a paper to talk some experience that you have. It takes 1 more hours to finish. Ask some about why you want to join the company and why not Chase or other fancy Company. Ask about past working experience and some skills.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Mediterranean Shipping Company (Charleston, SC) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Entirely way too intense. The main employee leading the interview was constantly trying to trick me with every question. Very pretentious. I had a common talking point with the other employee and we were rudely cut off by him. Before and after the interview I only heard negative reviews regarding the company, nothing positive at all.

    Interview Questions

    • He gave me the number of employees in the company then the amount of them that were accounting and asked questions regarding percentage, ratios, etc.   Answer Question
