    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Valley, AL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at West Corporation (Valley, AL) in April 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was very quick and not as formal as most interviews for an accounting internship. I was offered an interview on a Friday afternoon, had the interview on a Monday and was offered the position that same Friday. They contact you even if you did not get selected for the position applied for. The interview was a panel interview where the panelists asked questions back and forth. It was more of a situational interview and mainly based off of your resume.

    Negotiation

    Brand Ambassador Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Appleton, WI

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at West Corporation (Appleton, WI) in March 2016.

    Interview

    My interview process was 3 steps.
    - Telephone interview: The telephone interview was actually very easy. It's recorded and you can do it anytime of the day since it's online and gives you the chance to see all the questions at once. You can record your answers and play it back to see if you like this. The telephone interview should take around 15 minutes. They do give you a limited amount of time to answer the question (it'll cut you off if you're answer is too long) so try to have a strategy for how you answer each question.

    - In person interview: It took about 2-3 days afterwards when I heard back from West (via telephone and email from someone based in HQ in Omaha) and I was invited for an in-person interview with one of their HR coordinators. It's a very casual interview (though do dress business casual (no jeans)) where you have a chance to ask questions about the position/company. The great thing is that it's more about learning about you so that they can recommend you to the right position for you.

    - Hiring Manager: After the in-person interview, they liked me enough that I was referred right away to an interview with two hiring managers for two different projects. If they tell you what projects you'll be interviewing for, do as much research in to each project as possible. It made it easier to relate my previous experiences into the new role that way. The questions are pretty basic and behavioural so have a variety of examples ready.

    About 3 days later I was offered the position.

    Interview Questions

    • What does success mean to you?
      Pitch a product you have recently had to sell.
      Have you ever presented a project to hire ups?
      How is your customer service experience/sales?

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at West Corporation (Manassas, VA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Very easy going, no tough questions, you just have to read a script that they give you. They ask about things on your resume. I don't know what else to say but this thing wants me to write 50 words, so here we go. Once upon a time in the forest of England, there was a man who said, "Look over yonder, and thou wilst see what thine heart...."

    911 Calltaker Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Longmont, CO
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at West Corporation (Longmont, CO) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Solicited by email, phone assessment, official phone interview, in person interview with HR, both supervisors, and Manager The problem was one of the Supervisors was very disorganized and it seemed the team was aware - she emailed a date and day that did not match for the interview - no time and no address - I had to clarify which day, what time, and what address! - she didn't send me the security application she was supposed to, didn't even notify the front desk I was coming for an interview and the front desk said "Oh that must have been ***** they always forget to let me know." HR ended up sending the security application. This manager had a chip on her shoulder and was happy to ask questions but if you asked questions of the company and what it was like to work there (because the Glassdoor reviews are terrible!) she was very defensive and said it wasn't their responsibility to make employees happy, asked about if she noticed that employees with hobbies and passions were more productive she stated we don't get involved in our employees lives at all.
