    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at HSN (Saint Petersburg, FL).

    Interview

    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 Questions

    • 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.

    Interview

    If you can talk on a phone and type, you will probably get the job. They just ask you to navigate to an item on the website, and you have to up sell an item that goes with it during a "mock" phone call between you and the interviewer. It's really easy to get this job, but it's also very easy to lose it.
