I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Newegg (City of Industry, CA) in April 2015.
The HR personnel will give you a phone interview first to check your work experiences. If everything goes well, they will schedule you for a face-to-face interview with the department you applied for. The face-to-face interview took about one hour. The manager who interview was very nice, and the whole interview was relaxing.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Newegg in July 2014.
Fast easy interview, just asked about myself nothing about past work experience, sat down with a CSR to listen to a call and was told I'd be moving on the the next step of the hiring process simplest interview I've been a part of. Very friendly manager and interviewer along with a great staff of CSRS
- How would you contribute to the company Answer Question

I applied online. I interviewed at Newegg (Indianapolis, IN) in July 2014.
Typical interview. Easy questions. They seem to want to hire anyone. They built up a lot of lies about the opportunity to move up. They also lied about how well they treat their employees. Overall, this company is very misleading in their approach to finding new talented associates. They are like a revolving door with hiring, as people are constantly leaving after such poor management.
- Nothing difficult. Answer Question
No negotiation. They offered 11/hour. Had I known they planned to work me like a dog, I would have asked for more.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Newegg.
Reached out by internal HR via email referenced of my public profile, in person interview was set up after the phone interview with HR. Interviewed with head of the division but I was not impress by their knowledge and experience. They were very impressed by my experience and knowledge and keep asking for the solutions to the problems for current company's situation, also ask to prepare business plan proposal. I politely refused because I felt like they are try to take an advantage of me, besides it's against my work ethic.
- All the basic usual interview questions. Unexpected question: 1. Can you prepare a business proposal how to improve our company current situation? 2. You are so experienced, why didn't you start your own company? 1 Answer

I applied online. I interviewed at Newegg (Indianapolis, IN) in April 2014.
The interview was great. I felt like I had a real opportunity to move up with a great company. I felt the managers quickly asserted the details of the job and made me feel good for applying. The atmosphere was comfortable and was not high-stress.
- They asked how I handled a difficult experience at my previous job and how I could have handled it better. Good question. Answer Question
I did not attempt to negotiate. Their offer seemed fair at the time.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Newegg in March 2014.
Phone interviewed, then scheduled for Interview at Newegg. I was led to a conference room and sat. The interview started with the head of HR department, took about 2:30 hour and I have met and talked to 6 person one by one. Everyone I have met at the interview are very nice and professional, each person took about 20 minutes and they all asked if I have any questions for them.
- Why did you leave your recent job? Why do you think you can take on this position? Why do you want to work at Newegg? What's most challenging to you at your previous jobs? What are the mistakes you have made from your last job? Answer Question

I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Newegg.
Spoke with the HR representative over the phone. They call at the most random times so I wish they would send an email first and schedule a time, rather than expect you to be free 24/7 to speak to them. HR asked the general questions, but it seemed like they wanted too much experience for an entry level job. I just wish they would have told me that I didn't get to the next step. It only takes 1 minute.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Newegg in November 2013.
I was approached by their internal headhunter for a product manager position. I was initially interested because of the strong brand name in the online world for electronics. I arrived and was taken to a meeting room where I was told I would be meeting with various directors. I believe I waited for about 10 minutes for the first person to interview me. She was nice and polite and overall it went okay. She left and said I will be meeting with another director. I waited for over 25 minutes for the second person and I was seriously thinking they forgot that I was in the meeting room. Finally the next person came in and he seems completely caught off guard. He said he was not planning on interviewing anyone today and that they pulled him unexpectedly to interview me and he had not had a chance to look at my resume. I met with 4 or 5 people total and each person asked me what position I was interviewing for. My impression was that they were completely unorganized. They had not prepared for the interview. I was very disappointed with the experience. Plus to top it all off, I asked each and everyone if they liked it and if they were happy at this company and none of them never gave me a straight answer. They dodged the question by answering that it was a very good company and if you pay your dues and work hard you eventually get compensated. I never heard the words, enjoy, happy, content, satisfied, fun place to work or anything to that effect. In the end they determined I was a better fit in the marketing department/ecommerce but I declined to reschedule another interview with that department.
- All the interview questions were for the most part straight forward i.e.. walk me through your resume, why do you want to work here?, Why should we hire you? etc. Answer Question

I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Newegg (City of Industry, CA) in October 2013.
One on one casual conversation with the manager. He obviously wasn't prepared and is not familiar with the interviewing process. He reviewed my sparkling resume and confirmed that I can do the job and is beneficial to his team. He was very misleading on the job description and what to expect.
- "Are you married? Do you have any kids?" Answer Question
