    Customer Service Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Abebooks (London, England) in April 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online through Abebook's website and they responded in a week with a time for a phone interview. The connection was somewhat glitching, but overall it was an easy interview.

    Following that they organized a series of in-house interviews that revolved mostly around my past experience and previous work. Questions seemed to revolve around Amazon principles with a constant focus of past situations.

    Overall the process was fun and the interviewers were nice and friendly.

    Interview Questions

    • How do you deal with ambiguity in emails? Tell me about a time when you made a mistake. Tell me a situation when you disagreed with your manager. Tell me about a difficult situation you handled with a customer.   Answer Question
