    Customer Service Associate (Work From Home) Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Hickory, NC (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Crate and Barrel (Hickory, NC (US)) in July 2020.

    Interview

    A recruiter emailed me and requested a time to set up an interview. It was a very pleasant experience. Then I was set up a time to interview with one of the CSA managers. She was also very wonderful to speak with. They asked me about myself and my customer service/call center experience. Although I have previously worked in two call centers, I have never worked from home. However, there were many similarities in protocols and policies for the position as my former employer. Everything went smoothly, I was given a brief on the benefits and what I would expect working from home in their call center.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked a series of questions such as what was my experience in dealing with irate callers, how do I typically handle those situations, and if I had the equipment prepared to work from home. I was also asked about my availability, because the call center has specific requirements of associates in regards to scheduling.   Answer Question

    Assistant Manager Sales Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in McLean, VA (US)

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Crate and Barrel (McLean, VA (US)) in July 2020.

    Interview

    The interview was one of the worse experiences I have ever had. I only had 1 interview with an Recruiter and she was one of the worse recruiters I’ve ever interviewed with. The interview only lasted 9 mins. She first started off with what she does for the company, then asked me 3 questions. During the third question she cut me off and ended the interview. I did ask her one question about the job and said its self explanatory in the description. I should have asked why she cut me off like that, but I was still trying to be professional and not rude like her. Based on this interview alone I’m glad I didn’t seek anything further with the company or be asked too and will always remember this experience with this company.

    Sr Data Analyst Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Crate and Barrel (Chicago, IL (US)) in June 2020.

    Interview

    Interview with the HR lead, that was the only interview I got for this role. I wasn't being selected was only because I am not a U.S. Citizen and I need H1B transfer. C&B wasn't able to do that. I didn't know that until another recruiter from CB2( same company with C&B) reach out to me with another role. I wasn't being selected because of H1B working authorization again. However, during the interview, the HR lead didn't mention anything about that part. In fact, she was very pleased with my answers.

    The interview itself was very basic. Mostly behavioral questions. Nothing so special or tech-savvy.
