Economic growth must be priority and HSN isn't it.
HSN announced in March the company would be relocating its distribution center from Salem, Va., to the old Fingerhut facility in Piney Flats.HSN has hired about 300 employees to date and has plans to hire an additional 40 to 50 employees by mid-2005. "We had a lot of individuals who applied for several different positions, so our system will count them more than once," Winterbottom said.HSN has a multi-tiered approach to the interview process, with people first going through an automated system via the Internet or telephone, which screens out about 50 percent of applicants.The system then allows applicants to schedule their own interview, where about another 30 percent drop out. Winterbottom said HSN had about 1,200 scheduled interviews with about a 30 percent no-show rate. "We actively started interviewing folks the first of June who started working by the end of August," Winterbottom said."It was a very concentrated effort." Winterbottom said HSN is pleased with the labor market in the Tri-Cities area and said that was one of the reasons why the company chose to relocate to Piney Flats. "It is a very highly concentrated area of folks who have the experience we need.There's a lot of distribution centers, trucking and material movement that happens in the Tri-Cities area," Winterbottom said.
