    Nights Customer Service Advisor Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Sky Betting & Gaming (Leeds, England) in January 2018.

    Interview

    Telephone interview was nice and formal; asking the usual questions "Why are you leaving your current job", "What do you know about Sky Bet" etc. Simple research of the company should give you all you need to have a great telephone interview and the person contacting me was really easy to talk to and extremely pleasant. Really puts you at ease!

    Once you've passed the telephone interview and move to the face to face interview, that's where preparing makes all the difference. Make sure you have at least two examples for general customer service "Tell us about a time" queries. Candidates will be asked for a range of examples from meeting targets/goals, good customer service, a difficult situation etc. Make sure all examples for the STAR format.

    After the competency questions, there's a small role play, so make sure you read all of the information given.

    The interviewers all make you feel extremely comfortable and the interview was more conversational than formal, which really does help.

    • Can you tell me about a time when you've dealt with a difficult situation?   1 Answer
    • Can you tell me a time when you didn't meet an expected target / goal?   1 Answer

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Sky Betting & Gaming (Leeds, England) in December 2017.

    Interview

    Initially you were required to send in a CV and covering letter and it was from this you would be selected for a phone interview. This was very relaxed and asked about how much I knew about SB&G, why did I apply and about myself. From this I was then selected for a video interview which was one where you had privy to the questions and recorded them online. You get 48 hours from when you receive the email to do this. From these recordings, they decide whether or not to invite you for an assessment day. I have been selected but am yet to go to it but from what I hear from others, it is a fun and relaxed day but also challenging and stimulating.
