    Customer Service Hybrid Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Saint Petersburg, FL
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at HSN in September 2011.

    Interview Details

    It is extremely hard to get into HSN unless you have a friend or family member that work in the company. When you apply you must take a personality assesment on their website. If you are called than you go to an audition you are asked questions about passed employment they want to see if your old habits are going to shine through they like a blank canvas to mold you into their standards. If accepted you must work night shift and weekends no matter what.
