    Former Employee - FT CS HYBRID to PT WAH FLEX in Saint Petersburg, FL

    I worked at HSN part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great pay for Florida. The pay out on the upsales, credit card aplications and contests are good. The product fairs are great, with lots of information and free samples.

    Cons

    What you are trained to do and what is expected on the floor are two different things. Sales is paid one wage and customer service/hybrid a higher wage. Sales is expected to take CS calls. In training you are told to transfer the customer over to CS as that's what they are there for. Even though my sales and upsell numbers were excellent, and customer compliments were docimented I was terminated for not doing the CS job while making a sales wage with sales metrics (197 seconds or less per call). The deny everyone unemployment. U r reminded daily your employment is "at will".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    All management needs to go through the training program once a year for their department. 23 years on the same job and they are unaware of what's being taught in the classes. Management needs to be hired from the lower ranks, not from other companies where they never were a worker bee. Straight from college to a management position. They have no clue. The best managers were recent promotees from the call center floor.
