I applied online - interviewed at HSN in July 2012.

Customer Service Hybrid Interview

Customer Service Hybrid
Saint Petersburg, FL

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at HSN in September 2012.

Interview Details – The interview process was standard and efficient. Between application and hire notification was approximately 2 weeks. It was pretty much your standard cattle call interview. Despite having extensive experience and education my hiring was done pretty much by a cookie cutter process. No originality.

Interview Question – The skill testing was a bit antiquated but no difficult.   View Answer

Software Engineer III Interview

Software Engineer III
Saint Petersburg, FL

I applied online and interviewed at HSN.

Interview Details – Typical bait and switch
They advertised and interviewed me for Senior Software Engineer and in the offer letter they had mentioned Software Engineer. When asked they it is their norm and they will promote me in 6 months (which never happened)

Interview Question – Technical interview was good , one needed to have working experience to pass their technical interview.
In the interview with management , they forgot to tell me that I need to be in on-call support every 5th week and I came to know this after joining them.
