I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Blackbaud in January 2010.
Interview Details – Contacted by an internal recruiter and passed through initial phone screen - went very well, passed on the next step. Second interview (also phone) was with a Practice/Consulting Manager (not the hiring manager), which consisted of review of applicable background and experience (good, in-depth questions) - went very well, passed on to next step. Following the second interview was asked by the recruiter to complete a case study consisting of putting together a project plan and associated materials, and would discuss case study with another Practice/Consulting Manager. Worked very hard (weekend) in completing an in-depth, thoughtful, detailed plan inclusive of deliverables. Reviewed the materials with the third Manager..."thought" went very well as well. After a week received a voice mail from the recruiter they had selected another candidate. Left a very professional message for the recruiter seeking feedback, played one round of voice mail and the recruiter sent me a time they would be available. Attempted to contact at that time, with again no luck. Didn’t want to fall into the “people who don’t get the hint” category…so let it drop. Overall…a poor process, recruiters should learn by just doing the right thing it would make then stand out so much from their peers, as well as reflect better on the organization. Oh, position is still posted three months later.
Interview Question – Review case study approach. Answer Question
Very Easy Interview
I applied through other source and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Blackbaud in April 2009.
Interview Details – Very easy process there were no tests. I had 2 phone interviews that were a breeze, then went to the headquarters where I had 3 more interviews. I received a phone call within 2 days of being there with a job offer. It was honestly the easiest interview process I have ever been through. This in itself is a little scary. I was supposed to be interviewed by one manager, but she was too busy so decided we would just sit in the employee cafeteria over lunch. She never once asked about any qualifications, rather just talked like we were best friends. The other 2 interviews only lasted an hour. I was supposed to take a test, but the one interviewer wanted to interview me as soon as I got there so they even skipped the test. There was no background check, which again is a little scary
