    Customer Service Specialist Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Windstream (Charlotte, NC) in April 2017.

    Interview

    There was an initial phone interview then an in person interview. The onboarding process was extremely unorganized and unprofessional. I was never contacted by my manager/supervisor as I was previously told me I would to gain details about the position and the training schedule. I recieved a welcome text message telling me my start time but not the end time of training. When I texted the recruited back, she took a whole day to respond that she "thinks" training ends at six but was not sure and my manager would call. Needless to say I never got that call and I choose not to be employed or ever reapply with this company. This was a very frustrating experience and a waste of my time.

    They asked very simple questions. In order to be successful you have to be a self-starter and not need anyone to help you. Although this is not a sales job if you fail to sell you will get fired
