    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Harte Hanks in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    I emailed my resume to a recruiter who contacted me and did a phone interview. I then did a 1-on-1 interview with a supervisor at the company. I was surprised that the interviewer did not know what hours or how many months I would be working, but I also did not realize at the time that the company does work for multiple clients.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    There was no negotiating. Advice to others is to understand that you must be flexible and willing to work any possible day of the week and any hours. The hours and days will not necessarily be the same from one week, or even day,.to the next.

    I applied online. The process took 3 days - interviewed at Harte Hanks in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    Manager was very relaxed and upfront about the position. The workplace was casual and open. Heard other agents openly joking around and personal cell phones were out on the desks. Was waiting with other applicants applying for the same position but, the turn over rate is so high that they hire 4 people at a time.
