    I applied through other source. I interviewed at QVC.


    Large amount of interviewees were moved from table to table to have a brief conversation with several different supervisors. One asked me questions from a list of typical interview type questions, another interviewer had you read a few paragraphs to ensure you would be able to speak reasonable well to your customers (with some scripting advice)... One discussed your scheduling preferences and QVC' schedule options/ needs.There was a drug test conducted (urine)

    Interview Questions

    • I remember being asked how I would handle an irate customer. I also remember being asked if I could be occasionally flexible with my schedule during the holiday season to meet the needs of the business.   Answer Question
