Customer Service Interview Questions: Advice from Career Trotter


If you are applying for a customer service job, these tops will ensure that you are well prepared and will ace the interview.

What is customer service?

Keeping the customer happy is the main role of a customer service agent. As you are usually the first point of contact, how you present yourself and your overall attitude is always remembered. It will be your job to build positive relationships with them, making sure that their experience with the company is a confident one and in doing so the overall reputation of the company is increased.

What can be asked in an interview for a customer service job?

These questions will follow along the lines of competency based interview questions where the interviewer tries to find out your skill level and what you would do and have done in certain situations relating to the customer service job. Below are some of the possible customer service interview questions you may be asked

Possible Customer Service Interview Questions

  • What would you do if you had multiple tasks to complete in a limited time frame?
  • What do you know about ticketing systems?
  • How well do you work under pressure?
  • Do you work well within a team?
  • How would you deal with an angry client/customer?
  • Give me an example of when you went the extra mile for a customer?
  • How would you solve a problem creatively or in a creative way?
  • If you had to decline an urgent request from a client what would you do?
  • What targets did you deal with in the past and what where their results?
  • Why should we hire you for this Customer Service Role?


The majority of these questions are competency based so always give an example, whether the interviewer asked for one or not. When in doubt give an example. The reason for this being, the employer wants to see how you have previously handled such a situation, so now is your time to shine, show them what you’ve got.

Competency Based Questions – Advice from Career Trotter



The interview will usually flow with 3 types of interview questions, PersonalMotivational and lastly the Competency based questions.

These interview questions are asked so that the employer can see whether your skills, motivations and personality match up to what they are looking for when it comes to fulfilling the job spec.

Many people dread these type of questions but the truth is, once you have an answer prepared all you need to do is tweak it depending on the job you are applying for. Here competency questions are broken down into 2 easy steps.

How will I know it’s a competency based interview question?

This is simple, when you hear questions starting with:

  • How would you…
  • What would you do if…
  • Can you explain how you would…

Then you know it is a competency based question.

What are they looking for?

When answering this type of interview question you will need to:

  • Explain how you would handle the situation normally giving them a step by step answer.
  • ALWAYS GIVE AN EXAMPLE:You give an answer based on a past work experience situation, where you mention the company you worked for, how you managed the situation and give them a rough timeline of when it happened.

– Stick to the point, describe how you actually handled the situation step by step.

Trotter Note:

You should always give an example, whether the interviewer asked for one or not. When in doubt give an example. The reason for this being, the employer wants to see how you have previously handled such a situation, so now is your time to shine, show them what you’ve got.

What can they ask me?

What they can ask is different based on the industry you want to work in. But not to worry, we have created a list of possible competency based interview questions for the sectors that we have jobs in, simply click on the links below and get interview ready for:

Once you know how to answer Competency based interview questions you can prepare well and actually look forward to them in the interview.

Motivational Interview Questions


Below are some good tips on answering motivational interview questions from Career Trotter.

So you’ve checked out the personal interview questions and you are ready for the next step.

Within the motivational interview questions the company follows the same 3 questions. They may be asked in a different way but they are all asking the same thing.

It is important that you listen to what is being asked in the interview, as some of our candidates missed out on a great language job because they did not listen to the interviewer and what they were asking.

  1. Why would you like to work with this company?

In answering this question, the interviewer does not want to hear, anything about the location of the company or meaningless stats on the company.

What are they looking for?

For this motivational interview question they are looking for you explain what it is you know about them and what it is you like about them.

  1. Why would you like to work in (insert Country here)?

Your answer here can be as personal as you like, this is all about you here and why you would like to move and work abroad. For this motivational interview question you only talk about the country where you will need to relocate to for the job. You can say you went there on holidays and loved it and its culture etc.

  1. What do you like about (Job Title)?

Ok so there must have been a reason you applied for this job? This is what they are looking for. Don’t just read out the job description to the interviewer, we would recommend that you talk about what you understand about the job, what you will be responsible for in that position. It is important to throw in some keywords here ones that you would see in the job description.

It’s always a good idea here to relate back to previous experience, for example:

    ‘I like this job because….. I enjoyed doing this in my previous position as it          allowed me to….’
