    Customer Service Representative Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Nationwide Building Society (Northampton, England) in April 2018.

    Interview

    The interview process involved 3 stages. One initial screening phone call with the resourcing consultant, then another telephone interview with competency based questions and product review or presentation and then a final face to face interview where I was asked 3 questions that were competency based and then also had to do a role play.
    the role play involved a customer who had an overdraft account and was overdrawn. They were looking at how you would treat the customer in their time of crisis. Unfortunately I got caught out during the interview as the instructions they provided were not clear enough and therefore ended up stumbling over my own words and did not know all the options we were able to present to the "customer".

    Interview Questions

    • Describe a time where you were given constructive criticism and how you dealt with it and bettered yourself.
      Describe a time you and your team had to work together to meet deadlines, how did you prioritise yourselves?   Answer Question
