    Software Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I interviewed in-person. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at QVC in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was quite simple for me. I got a phone interview that asked the usual questions, "Tell me a time when" etc. The phone interview was done by a non-technical HR employee so no overly technical questions were asked. When I went to the in-person interview, it consisted of three different interviews. They were each about 30-45 minutes and were one after the other. They were with the same employee that gave the phone interview, two network systems employees, and two software developers. They asked basic questions and wanted to see anything that I had done. After the interview, I got a call later on (I do not remember the exact amount of time) and I took in internship.

    Interview Questions
    • I would recommend having specific difficult times in your life in mind. Be ready to answer questions similar to this one, as all are the same format and can be responded to in similar manners. "Describe a time to me when you were presented with a difficult situation, and how did you overcome the complications?"   Answer Question

    I interviewed online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at QVC.

    Interview Details

    Applied online with a reference from someone on the inside. Initial interview is a phone screening with the basic questions. They'll ask for an in house interview before the end of the call if they liked you. In house interview is usually with a panel consisting of HR rep, hiring manager, and a coworker. Questions are more company and experience-based.

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at QVC.

    Interview Details

    Straightforward. Not much structure. HR and Hiring Managers involved. Pretty much same as many other employers without the format or in-depth interview.
    At the beginning it may take a while to hear from anybody after application is submitted.
    Salary offer low on first try.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chesapeake, VA
    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took a day - interviewed at QVC in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    One basic interview. Lengthy professional orientation. Very thorough written documentation of company policy and expectations. Computerized scheduling and contract process. Well organized training. Confused and disoriented support staff. Very heavy and irrational focus on feelings. Some out of date information presented during training. Very tight, nearly stifling work schedule, with little work-life balance. No rational expectation of future success or advancement.
