    Inbound Sales Agent Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Antonio, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at The Hartford (San Antonio, TX) in April 2018.


    I was referred by current employee. I applied online and next day I received an email to setup a phone interview.

    The phone interview was great, professional and encouraging. Ms. Shari, the Recruiter, went over the position's job description, asked questions about my work experience, and behavioral questions related to customer service. I was given a date (2 weeks after) to interview with Management.

    The in person interview was a fun experience. Everyone was accommodating, nice, professional and knowledgeable. They asked behavioral questions all related to customer service. Make sure you study the STAR method. Each of the 10 interviewees spoke with 2 different Managers.

    Next day I received a phone call and got a job offer!
