    Customer Service Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cardiff, Wales
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Arriva Trains (Cardiff, Wales).

    Interview

    Long morning! Had two interviews with different members of management in the board room. Managers were very patronising to say the least by rushing you in the interview and considering you are only applying for 'Customer Service Assistant', felt like I was going for a review/interview with Alan Sugar on the 'Apprentice'. Shocking company!

    Interview Questions

    • Had a major grilling just to achieve having a job; Working on ticket barriers, and ticket office. This was more intense than an interview at the BBC WITH A £40K SALARY.   1 Answer
