    Interview

    After applying to the internship, they called me and I had a phone interview. It was very laid back and they asked me a lot about myself and my resume and then they wanted me to tell them what I knew about the company. They also asked about my career aspirations and what I was interested in pursuing after college.

    Interview

    Very easy... 30 min phone conversation and I was hired the following week. Some were asked to come into the offices, others were just phone screened. The usual questions were asked. Just be yourself and be honest :)

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at TerraCycle.

    Interview

    The company was really great, staff was very hospitable and kind, made me feel very welcome to be at their office. Both interviews were great, staff was laid back and was very nonchalant with interview process. They however wanted to low ball the average salary of a job with this skill set by 20k. If they want to really preach sustainability they should look more into social sustainability.

    Interview Questions

    • Most difficult questions were about how I would handle unique scenarios within their office and dealing with the daily situations such as balancing multiple tasks at once.   Answer Question

    Client Service Manager Interview

    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at TerraCycle in July 2015.

    Interview

    I was given a phone even though it was clear I was over qualified in order to ensure that was the case. For someone just returning to the interview/application process (I have worked for the same company for 16 years and still do) it was the perfect first call.
