Shipper (Former Employee) – West Chester, PA – October 15, 2016
I either for QVC for almost 20 years and my time there was fun at the beginning. Things change over time. I enjoyed working there and we grew as a family. So when it came time to leave (getting laid offer), it was hard. If distribution wasn't relocated to South Carolina I would still be there. People are friendly and sometime you even get to meet hosts of the show or even be asked to be a part of the show. Every five years you receive a placque and a gift card for shipping at the Q.
Job is not secure, company always making global decisions.
Warehouse Specialist (Former Employee) – Suffolk, VA – May 13, 2016
This can be tedious, but there are any ways to make money. You get to be out meeting lots of different people and learning about many different things. It takes dedication to really make a living picking and selling.
They have plenty of spots to throw you at but this is a fairly easy job to maintain if your hired,Management is laid back depending on your location but you will get hours.if your full time definitely but if your part time,or variable labor you have to pick your hours or they will give you a set schedule which means that you mostly will be there temporarily but the money is good.
Inventory Analyst Manager (Former Employee) – West Chester, PA – May 2, 2016
So this job was a little behind the scenes. I basically packaged all the jewelry, clothes, and other products bought by the consumer. The job was pretty easy at times and sometimes a lot of product would need to be packaged and a lot of it was heavy at times. Learned how to drive a fork lift and work numerous equipment with the process of also packaging. Good learning experience for future jobs involving packaging or other customer service duties.
QVC is a great to work at they have a great management team that are willing to support you along the way. A work day at QVC is unloading truck - coworkers are willing to help you learn something if you done understand it. The most enjoyable part of the job is fun a long the way.
Distribution Processor (Current Employee) – Florence, SC – April 28, 2016
A typical day at work consisted of around 20,000 units of merchandise being sorted to 14 separate dock doors where we would load that merchandise onto a Semi-trailer via a extendable conveyor belt. I learned how to work under strenuous movement and also learned how to effectively operate with others when on a busy day. Most of the coworkers were friendly and reliable. The hardest part of being a Distribution Processor was keeping up on an extremely busy day while operating on a fast-paced dock door. The most enjoyable part was learning valuable skills to help me later in life.
decently long lunch breaks, access to computers and internet during breaks
Had to operate multiple doors if an employee didn't show up or left early
Packer (Former Employee) – Suffolk, VA – April 28, 2016
Its a good place to work . you have to be able to be able to work in varity places at once. the pay is good too bad they only really hire for seasonal .you get great hours and luch and breaks.however you work long shifts unless u are oncall
This job at QVC has been quite a learning experience. I work primarily 10 hours per day. The most enjoyable part of the job has been working safely. We have 130 safety days and counting at present. Management has been helpful and my co-workers exceedingly supportive. The instruction on the SP, TSP, PE, and forklift have been most helpful.
if you do not have thick skin this is not the job for you
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Chesapeake, VA – April 25, 2016
QVC babies their customers. If you do not mind feeling empowered, belittled, and not appreciated then work here. they say that there is room for you to grow in the company but they really are not flexible with you moving to different departments.
Good work schedules to choose from hours very flexible
Customer Service (Current Employee) – San Antonio, TX – April 20, 2016
The most enjoyable part of the job is when I can help someone who is disabled and cant get around. I learned even more skills for helping people and the power of listening. The hardest part of the job is trying to help someone who has called three times before and no one will listen or help them, but the best part is turning a negative experience into a customer who is laughing and thanking you for being the one to take charge and truly resolve a bad situation that earns their respect back.
Its a cult full of people just "collecting a paycheck"
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – April 15, 2016
PROS: Its casual ie shorts everyday if you like Cowboys games are always broadcast when on (no sound)
CONS: Only 30mins for lunch As listed above, you get "POINTS" for every little thing, including being in the restroom...I was told restrooms are for breaks and lunch only Order services is only allowed 90 seconds to take an order, therefore you can imagine the errors a CSR will face due to order takers worrying too much about the metrics than actually caring about the customer. (It was inferred to me that the company makes so much money the "few" customers who are treated badly or who's orders are wrong washes out in the end in comparison) There are too many "kids" who just want a paycheck and could care less about the customer Its a cult, you accumulate colorful bracelets for doing this or that in order to become "ONE WITH THE COMPANY"
Customer Service/order entry Rep (Former Employee) – Chesapeake, VA – April 13, 2016
I worked at Qvc for about 8 months and I loved it up until they came up with a new policy. The new policy was put in effect in January and you can only miss up to 10 points in a whole year, like how realistic is that. You get a point for everything! Unfortunately those points can add up very fast between doc appts, the weather, and other unforeseen things I am no longer with the company. I would not recommend this job to anyone because it is not very stable, there is so many things that could happen in one year.
Social Media Intern (Current Employee) – West Chester, PA – April 5, 2016
I have been interning at QVC on the Social team for a little less than a year and it has been an amazing experience. The internship itself has been very hands on, and I have learned a ton about not only social media but QVC as a whole. The company does a good job of giving interns opportunities to learn more about other teams and how each team works hand in hand. It has a great work environment, very laid-back, but at the same time it has a big corporation feel. I've also met awesome people along the way. Overall, I recommend QVC to anyone!
ability to grow, learn about the company, work at a corporate level, cafeteria, starbucks, good benefits, hands on experience for interns
Order Services Representative (Former Employee) – Chesapeake, VA – April 3, 2016
Consisted of inbound calls from customers who have reviewed the QVC programming. I learned in this environment that customers genuinely cared how your day was going. Co-workers were informative and caring. The hardest part of the job,computer issues. The management was caring, as well as the employees. This was a no stress job. I absolutely loved loved this job.
I worked as a Surgical Tech in Labor & Delivery in this Hospital. It was a very rewarding experience.
Order Entry Representative (Former Employee) – Port Saint Lucie, FL 34986 – March 31, 2016
I loved the long time History of this Hospital. Working in Labor & Delivery, I got to see another side of the Operating Room from where I had been at Lawnwood Regional Medical Center. I learned about Babies, and how their treatments and Medical Care is very different from the regular sites in Main Operating Room. I will hold Dear the experiences that I learned in the Birthing Rooms on into the Nursery. Babies changed me forever, and I couldn't be more In Love with Children as a result.
Customer Service (Former Employee) – Chesapeake, VA – March 28, 2016
Working for qvc was a great experience. They are creating a culture of excellence right from the beauty of shopping at home. The management team works extremely hard to make sure employees are well put together.
