    Retail Merchandise Support Planner Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Eden Prairie, MN
    Anonymous Employee in Eden Prairie, MN
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at ShopNBC in July 2012.

    Interview Details

    Applied online. Was contacted for a phone interview. Was then contacted to do an in-person interview. Took a couple of weeks from initial contact through in-person interview.

    Re: The opportunity to learn about the position - the interview was disappointing because the recruiter could not answer many, if any, questions regarding the actual job itself. They should have someone from the dept. present during the second interview who can discuss the daily position tasks in depth.

    Interview Questions
    • Where do you see yourself in five years?

      Difficult only because it seems like they don't want to hear that you would like to advance to other positions in the company instead of staying in the same entry-level position for the next five years. Pretty ridiculous.

    Senior Sales and Product Planner Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Eden Prairie, MN
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Eden Prairie, MN
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at ShopNBC in April 2012.

    Interview Details

    Horrible. Should have realized how unorganized and dysfunctional the company was at this very point. Questions were completely random and had zero to do with any previous job experience or anything pertaining to qualities which would allow me to perform job I was seeking. Was quizzed on exact metrics used by the home shopping industry, which I clearly had no previous experience in, nor any way of knowing such specifics used by a single company.

    Interview Questions
    • "this is a coffee cup and this is a calculator, pretend one is an iphone and one is a samsung and tell me how you would know which is better?"   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Definitely was low balled and accepted as it was higher of salary than what I was making. Very frustrating to be making same salary many years later. 1. Don't take the job 2. If you do, negotiate the salary
