    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Overstock.com in February 2013.

    Interview Details

    Multiple rounds of phone and in-person interviews - kind of felt like recruiting didn't have much communication with each other. I was called and emailed by several different people who had no idea I had already spoken with someone.

    Photo Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in West Valley City, UT
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in West Valley City, UT
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Overstock.com.

    Interview Details

    I had an initial phone interview where we basically went over my basic qualifications and what the job actually entails. Then I was asked to come in for a face to face interview. The interview consisted of answering a series of standard interview questions, completing a brief Photoshop quiz on basic commands including magic wand/selection, cropping, deleting backgrounds, image re-sizing, etc. There was a hiring freeze implemented soon after my interview so even tho management told me they wanted to offer me a position, I was not actually offered the position till several weeks later.

    Interview Questions
    • Time off during the fourth quarter (October 1 - December 31) is not allowed and on the rare exception that it is allowed it is only for senior employees. Asking if I was OK with not taking any time off during this period was a little unexpected but understandable as it is a retail company.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    I tried to get a little higher compensation however they declined telling me that raises are based on performance.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cottonwood Heights, UT
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Overstock.com in May 2012.

    Interview Details

    They gave me some "homework" to complete - didn't take long. I think there was one phone screen, then an onsite interview. The whole process was very fast; they make a decision with a day or two of the onsite interview, and they want an answer in a week.

    Interview Questions
    • I don't recall. I do remember they asked me to write some code on a white board, and the correct way to solve the problem was recursive.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There was no negotiation. They made an offer, and I accepted it.

    Pick and Pack - Stock Control Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Salt Lake City, UT
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed 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 Questions
    • 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.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Overstock.com in November 2011.

    Interview Details

    I waited upwards of 45 minutes past our scheduled interview time before they came out to greet me. I was pretty turned off by that, and had considered leaving a handful of times without even bothering with the interview. My managers seemed very nice - both women, which you don't see often. Interview was typical, they asked about any relevant experience, then had me write a sample product description on-the-spot. They did not ask for references, even when I offered to supply them.
