Hayneedle – Why Work For Us?


About Our Company

What started in 2002 as hammocks.com has evolved into who we are today: Hayneedle, a leading online home furnishings and décor retailer that includes the world’s largest outdoor living selection.

Omaha, Neb., is the home of Hayneedle’s corporate headquarters, along with its own photography studio and customer care center. With state-of-the-art fulfillment centers located in California and Ohio, Hayneedle delivers millions of products and over 3,000 brands – including our own in-house brands that feature designer looks at a fraction of the cost.

In addition to incredible selection and unbeatable value, Hayneedle’s top-rated in-house customer care center provides personal attention to each customer – whether it’s by way of in-depth product information or entire space solutions.

In 2016 Hayneedle was acquired by Jet.com ─ a next-generation ecommerce marketplace dedicated to saving shoppers more money. The synergy of this acquisition is creating record growth and expansion of the Hayneedle brand. Now more than ever before, people are discovering that hayneedle.com is their go-to for furniture, décor, exclusive designs, and more for every space, style, and budget.

    Customer Experience Email Specialist Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Hayneedle (Omaha, NE) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Before receiving the invite to go for an interview, I had to do three (3) online assessments (one math, one English grammar, and one misc.). Once I got confirmation that I 'passed' the tests, I got a call saying to come down for an interview. I didn't actually have to schedule the interview, they just said to come down between certain times of the day, Monday through Friday.
