Interview Details – Applied online with a reference from someone on the inside. Initial interview is a phone screening with the basic questions.

Questions are more company and experience-based.

IT Manager Interview

I applied online and 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.

Season Customer Service Representative Interview

Season Customer Service Representative
Chesapeake, VA

I applied through a recruiter and 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 Some out of date information presented during training.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.

Interview Question – Customers who are incapable of understanding their own finances. Customers who do not know that a recurring payment comes back every month, even though each monthly bill is paid in full. Customers who do not understand that a payment precedes a refund. Customer who make mistakes and cause their own problems, then telephone and scream at a CSR and demand that the CSR accept the blame.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Make it through the interview, pass the drug screen, and select a schedule.

Difficult Interview

Merchandise Planner Interview

Merchandise Planner
West Chester, PA

I interviewed at QVC in November 2010.

Interview Details – Be prepared to spend the entire day at QVC when interviewing for a Planning position. You will meet with the HR Rep, Director of Training, a panel of managers, have lunch with a VP, then take the tour...if they like you, you'll meet with a panel of peers, take a little quiz, meet with another manager, and THEN you can go home and rest your sore throat from all that talking!

Interview Question – Watch a segment of programming and make your callouts. Extremely difficult situation, because you have to write something, but you could be sitting in a room with the person who made those decisions! be analytical, but not critical.   Answer Question
