I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at HSN in November 2013.

Interview Details – Very easy and painless experience. Applied and got an e-mail the following day. Initial phone screen was the following week followed by the phone interview with the VP and hiring manager. Decision to fly me down was made the same day. Ticket was booked by the next day.

I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at HSN in March 2013.

Interview Details – Applied on the HSN website, got an email to expect a call. The interview was over the phone and the interviewer was really nice. There was a little problem, I didn't receive the call at the scheduled time and when I called to find out what happened I got no response.
