    Bilingual Customer Service Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Indianapolis, IN
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Westaff (Indianapolis, IN) in February 2017.

    Interview

    It's difficult to call this an interview. I received a call with general information about the position. Later that day, I took online tests about hypothetical workplace situations and typing skills. Two business days later, I arrived to give them my ID and complete the onboarding process (largely questions about punctuality, violence, and drug use). I also submitted to a drug test. Around 4pm the same day, I was asked to start 12 hr shifts at 8 am the next morning.

    Interview Questions

    • All of the questions about violence, yes, multiple, threw me off. Things along the lines of, have you committed violence against a coworker?; do you quickly resort to violence when aggravated?   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Westaff.

    Interview

    The prescreening phone call was wack as hell! Apparently, they want you to be a statistic in life in order for them to hire you. Base on my prescreening question i believe they want their potential candidate life to evolve around this company.

    Administrative/General Labor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Minneapolis, MN
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Westaff (Minneapolis, MN) in July 2014.

    Interview

    A day or two after applying, I got a call from a Branch Manager saying he wanted to talk about the position, when I returned his call, he asked what I wanted to know about the job, thinking he'd already told me about it over the phone. He said he'd know more about the position the following week. I eventually emailed him after not hearing back. He said I was offered the job pending a background check. I came in and did all the paperwork and did a drug test as well. He told me I'd start the next week some time, he'd let me know when everything went through. Never called. It's been two weeks. I know my background check and drug test were clean as can be. I have emailed twice with no response AND found the same job posting on a different staffing company's website. They obviously lost the account. Maybe they should be more organized and not waste time.
