    Call Center Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at eBay (Austin, TX) in April 2017.


    Interview process consisted of a over the phone screening, typical questions such as "Why eBay?".
    About a week later was invited for a on site assessment that consisted of basic math skills, grammar, basic computer knowledge as well as the typical personality assessment.
    A few days later I was invited to a 1:1 interview with one of the team leaders, prior to the interview, I listened to a recorded call.
    I had to evaluate the call and share what went well and what could have been done better.
    After this, I listened to a live call, then proceeded to the 1:1 interview.
    Interview was STAR based type of questions, individual interviewing had a rather cold demeanor.
    After 3 or so questions, he did not even bother to go over the rest of the questions and asked if I had any questions for him.
    Not even 2 hours went by, and was quickly emailed that they are going with other candidates.
    Disappointing and I don't think I'll be bothering applying with this company again.
