    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Publishers Clearing House (Jericho, NY) in December 2017.

    Interview

    Three stage interview. One phone interview with HR, one skype interview with a senior manager, and one in person interview with a panel of senior engineers. The phone and skype interviews were really just to get to know me a little and see if I'd be able to mesh with the company's culture. The technical interview was easy and if I was somewhat less qualified it would have been even easier. The panel I interviewed with was very ready to test the depth of my knowledge in all sorts of relevant topics. There were very few questions about acronyms and basics.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Publishers Clearing House (Melville, NY) in May 2014.

    The interview was easy- the job did not really require that much in terms of experience more about your availability of schedule to work because the hours were unique- I went into the interview and I was offered the job at the end of the interview and took a tour of the office space to get a quick preview of what I was going to be doing

    Marketing Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Publishers Clearing House (Port Washington, NY) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Head quarters is beautiful but very far and difficult to get to. Met with 4 people for 2 marketing internship positions. I felt very qualified but even after the interview I could not understand how they make money. The following week I found out they interviewed many many people they met through college career fairs. I send 2 follow up emails and still haven't heard back yet. Something tells me I did not get the position but I don't see why.
    I wish they had the decency to answer me and let me know either way.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Publishers Clearing House (Port Washington, NY) in May 2011.

    Interview

    The phone interview was standard. Consisted of questions about background and what you are looking for as a candidate. In person interview was friendly and not very professional. I took a few hours to get to the location and met with about 3 different people since I was "suited for multiple positions" within the company. I was told I would be contacted but never was.
