Everything was handled online & over the phone-VERY easy process.

Sales Agent Interview

Sales Agent

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at 1-800-Flowers.com.

Interview Details – The interview process is long but pretty simple. They make you jump through a couple of hoops with over the phone interviews. You are also required to take an online test, it's very simple. Once you are hired in the job requires you to download a bunch of programs on your computer. Its an extremely long and tedious process. You are also required to send in a bunch of paperwork our of your own pocket...tons of it.

Interview Question – What would you tell a family calling in to ask for flowers for a funeral?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I was offered a job on the spot after my over the phone interview. It seemed like more of a technicality than anything. The interviewer was just going through the motions with me, I hardly had to try.

Software Developer Interview

Software Developer
Westbury, NY

I applied through a recruiter - interviewed at 1-800-Flowers.com in November 2013.

Interview Details – I was contacted by a recruiter (not an internal recruiter) after posting my resume on a job board, and the recruiter got me a phone interview with a tech mgr, who then decided I should come in for an in-person interview. The interview was with three people, and detailed (including drawing on whiteboard by me and the Mgr), and seemed to go well, but shortly after the interview, the recruiter notified me that they had finished interviewing me and others, and had then decided to "re-think" what they wanted for the position. Who knows?

Interview Question – How would you transfer information from a customer ordering at store to the company's intermediate data repository, and finally to the target store for order fulfillment in the chain.   Answer Question
