Top Service Coordinator Interview Questions & How To Answer

Here are the three top service coordinator interview questions and how to answer them:

Question #1: How would you handle a difficult customer?

How to answer: This common question has special significance to many service coordinators. This question is meant to measure your behavioral habits. Since customers can be upset or difficult for a variety of reasons, think about a simple process you can help any customer with. Your process might include steps such as listening to the customer, being sympathetic to them, and taking responsibility to resolve the issue.

Question #2: How do you manage an overwhelming list of client requests?

How to answer: The idea of this question is to measure how well you can decide which tasks need to be completed first. Emphasize your ability to recognize which tasks take priority over others, as well as your ability to work under deadlines.

Question #3: How do you manage issues between co-workers?

How to answer: As a service coordinator, you may have to resolve conflicts between co-workers in your company. Be prepared to answer questions about conflicts between you and others, as well as conflicts that you are not a part of but have been called in to resolve. Focus on developing communication between all parties involved.

Service Coordinator was asked...June 29, 2016

First question: if your client calls you prior to the meeting and tells you that he would like to go have drinks with his friends after the meeting but the mom disagrees, how would you handle it.

6 Answers

You would have failed the question. It had nothing to do with self determination or reminding them of a meeting. It had to do with individual rights and freedom to make choices. I was trying to make an informed answer asking if the client was a minor, had substance abuse hx and if there was any contradictions with a clients meds....too many variables to consider. Less

If you read the question, it said "after the meeting"

this question seems so random? im not sure i understand how to prep for my in person interview this week after reading this lol. do you remember anything else they asked? Less

Verified via Video WebEx that I had no facial tatoos

So you can’t have face tattoos?

At the time of my interview several years back, a facial tattoo during the interview was a deal breaker. A interview work around might be: poor lighting, a bit of make-up, facial hair and a low quality web camera! :) Less

We're a busy place, how do you deal with overwhelming situations and how do you deal with customers with difficulty behaviors?

3 Answers

Good answer

As long as you remain humble they will get humble and if I get overwhelmed I usually try to take a deep breath release and go back at it Less

Sometimes you have to let the patient vent, apologize then offer to see how YOU can help them!! Just be sure you keep yourself calm and they will calm down with you. The overwhelming situation will become calm. It's hard but in the long run you may not feel so overwhelmed. Less
