    I worked at ShopNBC as a contractor for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great work/life balance and a very family orientated place to work. They allow in certain departments for you to work remotely which keeps your schedule very flexible.

    Cons

    It's a smaller company which doesn't allow for a ton of career upward mobility. They have a tendency to be short sighted at times.

    Senior Sales and Product Planner Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week - interviewed 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
    Accepted Offer
