I really could use this job if anyone can help you would be a life saver
Without any technical specs I would say make sure you are using the browser they recommend, if you are using firefox I would probably switch over to internet explorer. Other than that I would say make sure your pop up blocker is off. The more I think about it the more possibilities come to mind, it could be a number of things.

My co-worker did the HSN at home rep job; she took customers' orders. That's it! She did this a few nights per week with some weekend day hours and supposedly brought in a pretty decent monthly income.

She had to quit recently for personal reasons.

I would LOVE to do this PT myself, but I don't have a noise-free home. You cannot have animals or kids making noise or other phones ringing or the televisions playing.

Regarding the Hilton Work at Home.
It's the best part time job I've ever had.
They are extremely flexible
Training is $7.25 an hour for 7 weeks
Then $9.00 an hour afterwards for 90 days
After your 90 days your get an addition .25 so you pay is $9.25
Then your next raise (up to 4%) is after you've worked a year.
The work at home system is relatively easy. The only down fall is the 7 weeks of training which is done on site...not very convenient especially for a work at home job.
However the way the job works is during off peak season you have to work a minimum of 20 hours a week during peak it's minimum of 25 a week always 4 of those hours have to be done on a weekend day (friday, saturday, or sunday) regardless of peak no non- peak. You can work up to 39 hours a week if you are part time. Also you you to decide when you will work the core of your hours...ex: morning, afternoon, or evenings. If you choose core evenings for example you will select to work a schedule each week between the hours of 6pm and 12am. You choose you schedule weekly. You accrue vacation time and sick time. You get great travel (hotel) benefits for you and your family. They even have a matching 401k and lots of opportunities to advance like to specific lines that they call desk such as hotel desk, spanish desk, luxury hotel desk, customer care...the list goes on. Hilton is truly a trend setter for their work at home program. You are paid a guarnteed salary plus you early like an average of 12 cents for every reservation booked in addition to other incentives. You can really walk away making some serious part time money. It is just like working in a call center except you are working from home...so you are held accountable for your stats such as quality, talk time, not ready time and attendance...they have a very sophisticated way of tracking your work habits. I would most definitely recommend this job to anyone looking for parttime work. Best of luck for you.

A few years ago, I was offered a job by HSN. I had to pass a drug (urine) test first. I did not accept as they are quite cheap. They actually said to me "we are budgeted at $35,000 for the job but I am offering you $30,000" Please note, they knew my salary that I was making at the time was $48,000.
The whole interview process only took about a week and they were very nice during the interview.

This is something I am going to look into for my wife when we get there. Thanks for the bump and the mysterious person who spoke so highly of Hiton's work at home program who only has one post. Seriously, this would be great for DW to do while the kids are in school. PERFECTO!
