    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at SSE in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and was offered an interview within 3 weeks of my initial application. I was interviewed by two hiring managers, both were very friendly and gave me lots of information on the position and the company. The interview lasted about an hour and consisted of mainly customer service based questions but also questions about myself (what I like to do in my free time etc) and past experience.

    Interview Questions
    • I wouldn't say that any of the questions were particularly difficult, just make sure you know how to provide good customer service.   Answer Question
