    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Publishers Clearing House (Port Washington, NY) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Applied via Indeed.com, was called in for an in-person interview 2 weeks later, and received the job offer another 2 weeks after the interview. Interviewed by 4 people, each individually, & each getting shorter in time as they progressed. Was in the building for roughly 2 hours, very pleasant experience with everyone I encountered.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Publishers Clearing House in August 2016.

    Interview

    Waste of time. HR rep called me during middle of work to tell me they were interested - fine. I asked him if my one day availability during the school year would be okay, and he said it was.

    When I went in to interview, they told me they could only do $12/hr, less than my current internship, and that one day a week wouldn't work for them...

    Why not just say you couldn't do one day a week in the first place? Why waste my time like that?

    They also made me fill out a paper application after they had already gotten my resume electronically.

    HR also made fun of the fact that I took online courses at stanford??? Really not sure what's going on over at PCH HR.

    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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Publishers Clearing House.

    Interview

    Meet first with HR and had a mini interview, then was introduced to and interviewed with 4 other individuals. Finally met with the VP, and was sent once around again to meet one last time with HR. Great atmosphere, wonderful people for the most part. Interview lasted over 3 hours. Instead of telling me I didn't get the job though, they ceased all communication with me and refused to respond to follow email and phone call. Very rude and unprofessional, overall it soured the positive experience I had.

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

    Interview

    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
