So here are the Interview Questions and Answers for Team Leader BPO:

1. Introduce yourself?

This question is very basic across all levels, though you need to answer this question with confidence in the face and body language. By this question the interviewer wants to judge you on your confidence level, your education qualification, any specialization course you have done which can add value for the organization, your strength, and hobbies.

You need to sum up all this in and answer and while answering make sure this answer is not too long that interviewer should get bored or not too short that he has to ask the question again

2.About your work experience or Carrer History?

By this question interviewer wants to know about the organizations you are associated in your career history, also he wants to check the stability because HR does not look for quantity but for quality means, if your experience is with only 1 or 2 organization in past 5- 6 years this is the sign of stability.

While answering you need to emphasize the company’s name you have worked for a longer time also if you are associated with any international or Top Ranked BPO you need to share about your experience with that organization.

Keep in mind that if you have stability issue with your previous organization give the HR a legit reason to trust upon you and genuinely if you are not stable and spending only 6-8 months in any organization just because of management or issues with your superior, then believe me call center industry is not your cup of tea.

3. Why did you leave your last job?

This is the most expected question you need to be prepared for. By this question, the interviewer wants to know about the reason why you left your last job. For this you need to prepare your answer before the interview and keep practicing it if you have any such reason you do not want to share it with the interviewer so that no blunder in real-time. Though if you have a genuine reason you can share it with the interviewer,

By the way, you can also answer this question by saying that” You have been working since long in a company now you want to add some more expertise in your resume and wants to see how this market works “

4.Qualities of a Team Leader?

6. How to Control shrinkage and attrition?

This question could be asked by most of the organizations. In response to these questions, you need to show your people management skills. For shrinkage, you need to plan one day before and make the projection to avoid any unplanned in next day

To control the Attrition you need to have a better bond with the team and should know what different activities you need to apply with different agents

7. How to Achieve the target?

The interviewer can ask you about how to achieve the target if your team has not been performing good in initial days, here you need to show you sales skills and should explain to the interviewer if you have encountered any similar instance earlier in the previous organization while you are in the same role, this is not the toughest one if you are good in an experience you can easily crack this
