Banking Call Centre Interview Questions
Interviewer: “We would like to test your phone skills. When the phone on the desk rings, please answer it.”
Me: *Answers phone* “Hello, you’re through to the banking call centre. Please hold the phone for a moment for the next available agent.” *Places phone down*
Interviewer: *Staring at me*
Me: *Lights cigarette, reads newspaper, stretches legs*
[5 minutes later]
Me: *Picks up phone* “I’m sorry, all of our agents are busy right now… you’ve got no sodding chance.” *Slams phone down*
Interviewer: *Looks totally gob-smacked*
Interviewer: “That was absolutely beautiful.” *Wipes away tears*
