If you had a call that needed to be transferred to a supervisor but all of them were on the phone so you would have to handle the call and resolve the issue yourself. How would you handle this?

1 Answer

Obviously my job is to resolve all issues and contacting a supervisor is my absolute last stitch effort. This is also difficult because I'm not aware of your procedures for retention such as expedited shipping or upgrading products so I'm going to refrain from suggesting those to my customer. I would simply say I can place you on hold and currently all our supervisors are helping assist other customers at this time if you would rather I can take your information and relay it over to them to give you a call back.

The hardest question that caught me off guard, was when they asked if I was good with conflict resolution and how I deal with conflict.

Nothing really difficult I interviewed with the CEO and VP of operations and they wanted to know why I thought I would be the best candidate for the position. I was the best candidate because of my experience and maturity. They didn't like that my salary was a lot higher in my last position than what they are offering.
