    Great place to work.

    HSN Work At Home Sales Representative (Current Employee)
    Nash, TN

    ProsThe people are very nice. Training is awesome and the trainers are very friendly make you feel right at home. You also get bonuses every month with upsells !!! Everything is done online and at home... who could ask for anything better?

    ConsThe starting pay is low and we have several pranksters and pervs that call in every once in awhile. Other than that....everything else is great.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNone needed. Everyone... and I mean everyone is friendly!!

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Work

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe location of the business is great and the people are decent to work with. A lot of passionate folks who make the place run.

    ConsThe salary range is based on a local company not the national company that it is. All in all a good place to work.

    The company has lots of perks

    Customer Service Representative (Former Employee)
    Saint Petersburg, FL

    ProsThe company has lots of benefits and perks for working for them. They offer great health and dental.

    ConsIf you get hired as a customer service representative you are constantly rushed on the phone.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou seem to have a system that works for well for your company. So keep it up.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    It is fun here......sometimes

    Supervisor (Current Employee)
    Clearwater, FL

    ProsIn my expierence HSN has provided allowed me to pursue new opportunities. There are a lot of talented people to learn from. We have engagement events that everyone enjoys taking part in.

    ConsNeed a mentoring program for senior management to foster lower management that can assist them in transition to upper management. Salary is decent but when your team lead makes as much or more than lower management does not seem fair.

    Advice to Senior ManagementReview salaries to make sure they are fair.
    Create a networking events so people can mingle and meet people they wouldn't normally meet.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Just like any other call center job

    HSN Work At Home Sales Representative (Current Employee)
    Clarksville, TN

    ProsFlexible scheduling, easy to trade/give up scheduled via scheduling system and fb groups, can get schedule request temporary schedule change every 30 days. Get bonuses based on upsells of protection plans and additional items, twice a yr shopping event with big discounts, 40% employee discount, contests to earn products (jewelry, electroncs, etc) or store credit based on sales every week, employee forum where we get free products and get to see everyone from our area once/yr

    ConsCannot get weekends off (Fri-Sun), rare shift bids in high competition, dept that handles time off/paychecks, etc is impossible to get replies from, if your supervisor isn't working, there's no chat with your team, company keeps changing rules on how to earn the bonuses, There used to be fun surprise visits from supervisors when you got good stats, no one gets that anymore

    Advice to Senior ManagementRecognize that sales reps do a lot of hard work and stop making us the last to know

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Management pretty hands off...unless there's some arbitrary employee self review due

    Producer (Current Employee)
    Saint Petersburg, FL

    ProsLet you do your thing.
    Positive environment.

    ConsSome production positions aren't filled with flexible/knowledgable workers.
    Monotonous.
    Not an environment that lends to creativity-push back from managers and production

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet more involved in the live show process.
    Stand behind your employees as opposed to guests.
    Change the review process: it's way too long on the employee side and feels pointless.

    Award-winning Senior Buyer / Category Manager with extensive record of success in producing large-scale improvements.

    Senior Buyer (Former Employee)
    Saint Petersburg, FL

    ProsUnique customer base that allowed for immediate and long term sales promotion of new products.

    ConsLarge organization with some very dated systems and processes.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLosing their ability to allow mid-level managers to be creative, which is what allowed the growth from 2006 -2012.
