Specs: Windows Vista
I am interviewing for a Senior Technical Support Specialist. The position is not "heavy" technical, but I am going to have an technical interview next week. Does anyone have ideas of what the interviewer might ask me? Also, is there a good site to have in front of me while I am on the phone with the interviewer, where I can enter a question that may be asked, and I get a super quick response? Thanks

You should try using their site or call center to see what things they might ask and have google on hand to answer any questions?? Ask for a full job description, which should help put you on the right track. In a senior position you should already have a skilled knowledge base to recall from.
Also they must advertise what the call centers main services are?
