    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Blackhawk Network (Pleasanton, CA).

    Interview

    1 phone screen and one onsite interview, Was offered very low salary and recruiter was not all responsive. Don't know if this was his attitude or the company's. I went for another offer. They just did not seem to care about losing someone they selected after spending so much time on interviewing. Must say I was totally disappointed since I did not expect this from a Company I wanted to get into for a long time.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a dayinterviewed at Blackhawk Network in January 2015.

    Interview

    Got to go in for face to face through an external outsource recruiter. Had a group interview with 30 minutes each. Hiring manager very cordial and so was the second manager, who provided plenty of information on the company, painting a positive picture and providing her background. She asked if I had questions and I had a few because she belonged to un-related department. The Director was very stoic and took down notes of everything said. He asked all the probing questions and I did too. The role did not meet the job description as it was not a traditional role but specialized role with heavy journal entries and little analytical tasks. I made up my mind I would not pursue it. Director was really aloof and did not seem to understand that interviewing is a two-way street; candidate is also assessing if this is viable place to work. Asked many "how would you deal with difficult people" type questions further deflating my interest in the company.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Blackhawk Network in October 2014.

    Interview

    The most bizarre interview process I have ever been in. The hiring manager did not show up at the interview and never received an explanation. I interviewed with 4 other people prior to the hiring manager unexpected cancellation. I followed up with HR, and again, a poor follow up process. After few months, I assumed that I was not going to get a call back.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Blackhawk Network.

    Interview

    I was contacted via LinkedIn and after reviewing the company I responded to the recruiter. I completed 2 phone interviews and then asked to come into the office where I met with the hiring managers. During each step of the process I was very comfortable and enjoyed the discussions. As with any interview it is best to be yourself and answer truthfully any questions. I recommend bringing some questions as its important to ensure the company is a good fit to your work style and expectations.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions pertained to past experience, managment styles, and specific job related questions such as how would you handle this experience?   Answer Question
