    Easy Interview


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


    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.
