    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Harte Hanks (San Diego, CA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Very professional. Fast tracked me since I had other offers. Still required to go through the same vetting process. Relatively easy process with several rounds with different sales managers. Intense interviews but only to dig into experience.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Harte Hanks (Langhorne, PA) in January 2015.

    Interview

    A recruiter contacted me and brought me in to interview, he told me to come back in a hour so the suprvisor could interview me bc he thought I was a great match. came back in 45 min and waited two hours or them to tell me to come back another day for my second interview. took them longer then said to ask me to come back. Once I did, I was asked about my history in customer service and given a 20 question test about smart phones. the guy from the temp agency then gave me a drug test after my 2nd interview by mouth immediately after, the same day of my second interview. he left the room when he gave me test. honestly I think he somehow let everyone pass some how bc there were definitely people on drugs working there. guessing he got commissioned for bringing people on, bc I got 3 emails from different recruiters and who ever got to me first is who interviewed me. what's more funny is after I was hired on directly I still received emails from that temp agency offering me the same job I just got, the emails even said bring people I know looking for employment, seemed very desperate. I was then called and given 3 hours notice to go back to the office bc I was going to be hired directly through the company as a seasonal employee. I'm guessing so they didn't have to pay the temp agency too.?? the job should have been from March to October 2015. with promise of placement on another account when the first one wrapped up around October.

    Interview Questions

    • I was given a fairly easy 20 question written quiz about smart phones. Once I interviewed with my soon to be supervisor you could tell she was new at it but very nice to me. (too bad she put in her two weeks after I finished training)   1 Answer

    Show up dressed nice. Show that you care about how you look, and they will hire you there isnt much difficulty getting in the door if you take it upon yourself to leave your highschool drama at the door. The only con, is that working here can feel dehumanizing as they micromanage you and forbid you from doing anything other than reading or staring at the computer screen.

    And corporate HR in Austin TX will do nothing about it. The Managers will continue to favor the incompetent Team Lead, better off using the company to pay for your Insurance License then get a job somewhere else like we did.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Harte Hanks in February 2014.

    Interview

    The best way to get a higher ranked job at HH is to start as an agent and work your way up. Initially I was contacted by a very nice recruiter who was very excited to bring me on. I had posted my resume on Craigslist. She interviewed me over the phone and I had to do a voice test over the phone. Once I passed those, she very promptly called me back and scheduled the interview for the next day. I recommend making sure to not only research HH history and what they do but to also research the name of the account you are interviewing for. This is often the first question they ask. Also, be very prepared and have lots of questions ready for your interview. I was interviewed and then sent to do a drug screening within 24 hours. Once the background check and drug screening came back good, I was called and scheduled to finish the remaining paperwork, this took about 30 minutes and I started about 2 weeks after that.

    Interview

    The best way to enter to this company is beginning as temp employee in order to receive an offer to work directly to them. This company always looks inside the company before to get anyone else outside. I had thirteen month working as a temp thru a staffing company, and this situation allowed me to have more confidence in my interview, avoiding additional tests and examinations.

    Interview Questions

    • I needed to negotiate my salary because I was expecting more. But there wasn't any difficult question.   Answer Question

    I was a temp and boss recommended me for that position
