    Anyone know if they are still actively hiring English only CSRs?
    I applied the other day and did their questionnaire and was advanced to the next stage (english only myself) do I'd imagine they still are.

    They were very quick getting back to us after applying so I'd imagine of you emailed them the issue they'd sort it out quick enough.

    How did everyone get on with the vid interview?


  • Registered Users Posts: 855 ✭✭✭ NTC


    I did one on Sunday and haven't heard from them yet, only two days but I am very nervous, i really liked the description of the role.

    How long after the interview do they get back to you? I don't think i did too well in the interview :(

    I was talking to a guy I know who works there who thought he didnt do well either and he said they do the vid interview to take people out of their comfort zone, and its a lot of the time the people who think they did terrible who did the best, I stumbled on a few things and cut the recording short when I had finished what I wanted to say, I think it was better to give concise answers instead of blathering on to pad out the 2 min recordings. they emailed me yesterday saying they were reviewing it and would come back to me shortly, so hopefully should hear in the next few days.

    Hi all,

    Started there Monday, but still looking for a place to live.

    If anyone's still got a room free please PM me. Just somewhere closer to company or on a bus line would be nice as I got no car. I'm a nice 26 y.o. female, tidy and I spend most of my time with headphones on :)

    just wanted to give a quick update finally got a hold of the person that I was in contact with and they have sent out the link to me and this time I did get it :D

    but if its not to cheeky to ask someone who has already done the online video interview what questions they had.

    thanks again all :D now fingers crossed

    Hi there,
    Does anybody know about the Fraud positions?

  • Closed Accounts Posts: 1 nomansland


    I had my face to face interview back in Feb and was successful. I was then told they needed to do a background check on me through a third party company in order to be given a start date (as soon as possible, according to what I was told).

    This check was done and completed two and a half weeks ago and I've heard nothing so far. I've sent two emails and also left a voice mail message but no one has replied to my messages. Has anyone experienced anything similar?

    P.S. If anyone from Bioware is monitoring this thread please PM me.

    Cheers

    Hello everyone,

    I am moving to Galway in April and I'll be working in Parkmore Business Park...does anyone could suggest me an area where I should look for accomodation? I'm looking for a place on bus route not too far from the place where I'll be working but also accessible from the city centre.

    Thanks for your help!!!

    In a house! :D


    Lots of suggestions in this thread: http://www.boards.ie/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=2056363320


    And all you never wanted to know about the bus system: www.GalwayTransport.info
    - the neighbourhood maps could be particularly useful.
