    Customer Service Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Stockton, CA (US)
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Argos (Stockton, CA (US)) in July 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online through the networx recruitment site. I got a call about a week later inviting me to an interview the following week. The interview only took about 25 minutes and it was really informal which put me at ease. I was interviewed by the manager and stock manager. They asked several questions, some scenario based questions, told me about the role and then asked if I had any questions.

    Very relaxed, had two people interview me but one was mostly taking notes. General standard interview questions for a retail position but when I said I might not be free some Saturdays that would not work.

    Customer Service Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Argos.

    Interview

    I applied online. Then was invited for a face to face interview.

    Had a really bad interview experience. First of all, the room where the interview took place was really small and with no ventilation. As I live with someone in a risk group, I care about that, as I believe that environment represented some risk for COVID.

    Then when I gave my right to work documents to the interviewer he made a comment about my passport not being British. He said that because it was an EU passport it was harder for him to read the instructions. That kind of comment should not be expressed, as it made me feel uncomfortable and discriminated. A professional person would not say that in the same way he did.

    The interview was rushed, which makes me think about the lack of planning in the company. If you invite people for an interview, you should make sure beforehand that you will have time to listen to them.

    Lastly, I would like to say that when I entered the interview room, the interviewer told me that I did not have to use a mask (I was using one). I believe that comment was unnecessary, as if I was already using a mask, that means I had a reason to be careful. It made me think about how much this person takes seriously the pandemic.

    I really hope that Argos take action to guarantee a safer environment for candidates and that they Educate managers to important things like diversity and risk management. What I saw made me believe that they still don't take it seriously enough.
