    Account Executive Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Charleston, SC
    Anonymous Employee in Charleston, SC
    Application Details

    I interviewed online - interviewed at Blackbaud.

    Interview Details

    The application process was fairly simple. The interview process consisted of two phone interviews and one in-person interview. The phone interview was straight forward for the first interview. It was basic personality questions and baseline information on the job. The second interview consisted of salary specifications and more detailed questions. The in-person interview was even more in depth asking about certain experiences on your resume and job requirements/specifics.

    Technical Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Charleston, SC
    Anonymous Employee in Charleston, SC
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Blackbaud in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    Upon entering Blackbaud you have to stop at security and sign in. For the interview I had to sit with an associate while he spoke to clients. This was super awkward because the associate kept complaining the whole time while putting them on mute. I'm not sure what part of this experience makes anyone want to work for Blackbaud. The experience continued with a short interview. The associates I met with ask questions that didn't relate to the position. It seemed to be a nice office but the tour was very bland and scripted.

    Customer Support Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Charleston, SC
    Anonymous Employee in Charleston, SC
    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Blackbaud in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    For my first initial "interview", it was more of a gathering of potential future employees meeting at Blackbaud to meet with current employees for them to ask us questions and see how we would respond to them. They read over my resume and took notes on the back of it as I talked. It was loud as everyone was trying to talk to each other. I've never been to an interview quite like this before but it felt pretty relaxed. I tried to talk with as many of the employees as I could since I didn't have a fantastic background like most everyone else that was there applying for the same position I was. Finally after talking to the 5th person, she told me she wanted to see me come back for another interview so I gave them my information and they said I would hear back from them in about a week.
    Well a week went by and I hadn't heard anything so I emailed the woman I gave my information to. I heard about a week after I emailed them and she said I would hear back from them in about another week. Well, yet another week went by and I still didn't hear back so I emailed them again. Finally, she got back with me a few days later and we set a phone interview for the following week.
    The phone interview was a little awkward but easy. She read over my resume and asked what I liked and disliked about each of my previous jobs and asked why I had left them. I could hear her typing up a storm while I talked and all she ever said to my responses were "okay" and "right". It was very robotic, very standard but once she got through those questions and talked more about the job position to me she was very nice. From that point on we set up a second phone interview.
    The second phone interview was a lot like the first one but questions like, "What would you do if you had a document you'd worked on all day, that suddenly crashed on you, and you hadn't saved it". Then we played a round of 10 questions. It's just like the game 20 questions but you only get 10 questions. I think they play this with you just to see what your frame of thinking is. I guessed Barack Obama but the answer was Michelle Obama.
    All in all I felt the interview process was drawn out. I didn't get a call back for a final interview, at which point in my life I am thankful for. I've started to hear bad things about the company and a cubicle-phone job isn't what I was looking for, I just thought the benefits and pay would have been great.

    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Charleston, SC
    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 5 weeks - interviewed at Blackbaud.

    Interview Details

    Blackbaud posted a position for an internal audit summer intern on my college campus's career services website. I submitted my resume through that website. About 2 weeks after submitting my resume, I received an email from HR asking to participate in an online interview recorded via a webcam. I would be given an interview question, and then I would have 2 minutes to record my response. A few days after completing the online interview, I received another email from HR inquiring about a phone interview with one of the auditors at Blackbaud. The interview lasted about 30 minutes, and it was very laid back - no behavioral questions, no case studies, just a conversation about the experience I would be receiving as an intern. A week later, I had another interview with the Director of Internal Audit, and the very next day, I received an offer.

    Negotiation Details
    I was able to negotiate salary.
