    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Publishers Clearing House.

    Interview

    Meet first with HR and had a mini interview, then was introduced to and interviewed with 4 other individuals. Finally met with the VP, and was sent once around again to meet one last time with HR. Great atmosphere, wonderful people for the most part. Interview lasted over 3 hours. Instead of telling me I didn't get the job though, they ceased all communication with me and refused to respond to follow email and phone call. Very rude and unprofessional, overall it soured the positive experience I had.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Publishers Clearing House.

    Interview

    First there is a screening interview over the phone, followed by a in-person interview. Not really a bad process and the people I dealt with in HR and the hiring manager were decent. However, there was no follow-up and they kind of left me hanging which is the new normal I guess. Common courtesy has gone out the window in this soft job market. It seems like it could be a good place to work. But I would'nt know because I never heard from them again
