Customer Service Representative Interview (Neutral Experience)
I applied through a staffing agency and interviewed at Fidelity Investments.
Interview Details Quite dissapointing - the interviewer was a senior customer services executive, seemed to have very limited knowledge of the business itself, read questions from a list - it seemed like they were looking to hire robots who would simply follow instructions and would not even try to progress. But then again I guess in the light of what the job is it is understandable

Got a call later that day to inform me how the interview went.
