    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Blue Buffalo in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    I went through multiple interviews and received an email that I made it to the final interview. Without ever having my final interview, I received an email that they hired another candidate. The miscommunication and lack of common courtesy is a bad sign of unprofessionalism on the company's part.

    Interview Questions
    • The questions were not difficult. They were related to the position and mainly focused on management and coaching style. How do you stay organized? How do you manage multiple employees who are at different locations?   Answer Question
