Senior Technical Consultant Interview

Senior Technical Consultant

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Blackbaud.

Interview Details – Interviewed with several people who asked various tech questions (like school book style) and general work questions. Nothing atypical. You may get some in-depth SQL server questions and .NET questions along with some generics like explain polymorphism.

Interview Question – Did get asked why a manhole is round. Was really just to see how I think and nothing else.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Was able to negotiate for a few thousand more.

Director Level Interview

Software Engineer Interview

Software Engineer
New York, NY

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Blackbaud in February 2014.

Interview Details – Applied through career fair in my University, and they arranged a dinner at that evening. Two interviewers and 12 interviewees, I think they are just showing nice to people, no interview questions and no tough conversation, very natural. The next day they arrange a 1 hour face to face interview. 30 minutes for behavior questions (talk about yourself, how do you overcome a challenge work, etc. dig into a project on resume, and the interviewer were very nice) and 30 minutes for two simple programming questions(check whether a string is palindrome, implement a simple o-o design problem)

Interview Question – No unexpected question   Answer Question

NOCC Tech III Interview

NOCC Tech III
Austin, TX

I interviewed at Blackbaud in December 2012.

Interview Details – This was the longest interview process I had ever been through. I applied in October and heard back from them in November. I went through a phone screen with the recruiter then a phone screen with the hiring manager. I then had an in person interview with the hiring manager. After that I had to speak with the director on the phone then the VP. Of course the VP had to keep rescheduling which delayed the process. All in all each interview was pretty quick and painless.

Interview Question – I was asked many questions that had nothing to do with my experience. After starting the job I realized they had nothing to do with the actual day to day duties.   Answer Question

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Blackbaud in October 2013.

Web Developer Interview

Web Developer
Washington, DC

I applied online - interviewed at Blackbaud in December 2010.

Interview Details – I was hired by a different company that was acquired by Blackbaud, but I would imagine the process is rather similar. HR has recruiters and you do a phone screening with them first, then a phone interviewing with the hiring manager. Once through the hiring manager, I interviewed with my direct supervisor, one team member (asking technical questions) and one in-office person (cultural and stress related questions).

Interview Question – Dealing with stress   Answer Question
