Customer Service Representative Interview

Customer Service Representative
Salt Lake City, UT

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Overstock.com in November 2009.

Interview Details – I spoke with someone on the phone. I then had a one on one interview, after which I took a few PC based tests, such as typing and vocabulary. It was very smooth and simple.

Interview Question – I'm afraid I don't remember any difficult questions. I found it a bit challenging to answer the same type of questions repeatedly and provide good answers, however.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I didn't have a negotiation phase as that's not my forte when applying for work.

Web Designer Interview

Anonymous Employee
Salt Lake City, UT

The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Overstock.com in November 2011.

Interview Details – A recruiter got in touch with me and then asked me to submit a document answering 10 questions about certain things in the field (i.e. what tools I used and why, experience with code, etc.). Then I moved onto a phone interview, which they offered me a 1:1 interview the next day. I went to the 1:1, it consisted of 5 members from Overstock, they offered me the job the next day.

Interview Question – What have you learned in the past year?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I didn't really negotiate, the recruiter mostly did that for me.

Marketing Analyst Interview

Marketing Analyst
Salt Lake City, UT

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Overstock.com in May 2010.

Interview Details – Interview was pretty casual, not much of a structure. Had about 4 2-on-1s, then a 30-minute with the SVP. Questions ranged from experience questions to case questions to quick-math questions. Seems like each interviewer had his or her own things that they looked for, nothing consistent. Probably the largest focus was on my analytic abilities - what tools I had used, what data I had worked with, etc.

Interview Question – Most unexpected quesiton: what is 7% of 110?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Not much wiggle room - was able to negotiate an additional 7%, but not much.

Marketing Analyst Interview

Marketing Analyst
Salt Lake City, UT

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Overstock.com in May 2010.

Interview Details – Started off with initial phone screens, then brought in for several 2-on-1 interviews. Some of the easier interview questions I've been asked. Nothing extremely technical, more focused on fit. They do have a lot of business scenario questions - stuff focused on how you think about margin, volume, costs, etc.

Interview Question – What is 7% of 110?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Negotiated a little, not much.

Pick and Pack - Stock Control Interview

Anonymous Employee
Salt Lake City, UT

I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at Overstock.com in February 2012.

Interview Details – They hire through Prologistix. The people at Prologistix will take you into a little room and give you a run through of what they do with an RF to pick item, however that training is only partially correct. It is not set up so that you can really get an idea of how the true operations work. There wasn't really an interview for this position. The staffing service has their own interviewing process and may ask if you have any experience, but you don't need experience for this job.

Interview Question – Do you have any experience in a warehouse?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – They do not negotiate and they have people working at Overstock whom have worked at the company for 3 or more years and still have not been offered a position. Overstock RARELY hires anyone, but have plenty of people from the temp service.

Manager Interview

Anonymous Employee
Salt Lake City, UT

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Overstock.com in January 2008.

Interview Details – At Overstock, interviews are arranged to get you with a pack of people at the same time 3 or 4 at least.
So be prepared to be very general in your answers until you get a feel of the people that are interviewing you.
Do your research about Overstock, but focus on Naked Short Selling and Patrick Byrne's fight against Wall Street, praise it and you'll be fine.
Buy something from Overstock before the interview and mention it.
There is a great advantage if you are from Darmouth, Stanford and BYU.

Interview Question – What do you know about Naked Short Selling   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Do your research and ask for the highest salary you can think of, because there won't be any future promotions or raises.
