    Call Center Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Erie, PA
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at National Fuel Gas (Erie, PA).

    Interview

    Was interviewed by HR the first time. Received a call back the very next day to come in again and meet with HR as well as a supervisor and manager from the call center. HR was the only person who asked questions, the other 2 basically just listened to the answers. IF you apply please be aware that it took about 2 months to hear from NFG and the offer came the same week I was interviewed. They do get a lot of applications, but they also have a very high turnover. Most people have been there less then 3 years.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at National Fuel Gas (Buffalo, NY) in November 2015.

    Interview

    Very intimidating and rude. I expressed several times that I want to start my career with them, and I know my resume is big and has a lot on it but they kept wanting to know why I wanted to work for them, and that I am "overqualified" supposedly.. Also they kept asking about dogs, which was no problem for me.. just thought that was weird..

    Customer Service Specialist Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at National Fuel Gas (Williamsville, NY) in July 2014.

    Interview

    Submitted resume first week of June, did not hear back until July 21st which was via email. Set up phone interview for the following week. Was called by HR and phone screening consisted of going over school and current employer information. Set up face to face interview for 2 weeks after that. Face to face interview was short. Interviewed by woman from HR and 2 men (can't remember their names) both whom are very high up in the company. Asked how a previous job would relate to this one, why I was looking to change career paths, and if I had any questions. Took 15 minutes at the most. Was then directed to fill out an application and sign background paperwork. Apparently only people they are considering hiring are asked to do this. If you are asked to just leave and sign out, then you didn't get the job! I was called just under 2 weeks later and offered the position.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at National Fuel Gas (Buffalo, NY) in October 2012.

    Interview

    Lots of people asking questions, some questions not pertaining to job meant to gauge personality.Group appeared to be self-focused ant not listening to my answers to other's questions, thus leading them to ask me similar questions. It was very telling of this company's management atmosphere, i wish i paid more attention to the warning signs before accepting employment.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took a week. I interviewed at National Fuel Gas (Buffalo, NY) in March 2008.

    Interview

    Phone call for screening, two interviews of attorneys inside at thirty minutes each. The attorneys were rather aloof interviewers who obviously had put little thought into the interview--the age-old "read resume in front of candidate, repeat lines from it with a rising intonation and gently probe further." At the end of the interview, I had very little idea what separated a successful candidate from an unsuccessful one.

    Human Resources Intern Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at National Fuel Gas (Buffalo, NY) in October 2007.

    Interview

    Initially, I met with a HR representative for an on-campus interview. I did well at this interview, which was a standard "tell me about yourself" type of interview, and was asked back for a 2nd interview at the home office with the hiring managers.

    After spending about 30 minutes filling out paperwork, I was asked to go upstairs and meet with 2 hiring managers at the same time. During this meeting, I was asked about two things: The Buffalo Bills and Buffalo weather. Nothing was asked about my qualifications or anything regarding the position. Within 15 minutes, I left.

    The 2nd interview took place in October, but it wasn't until January that I heard back ANYTHING - and it was only in the form of a general letter. It would have been nice to hear an update from the HR rep.

    Luckily, I had secured a much better internship at that point so I didn't care much, but in my opinion, the whole interview process was very unprofessional and I wouldn't have wanted to work for a company like that anyways.
