Outerwall Interview Questions & Reviews
Getting an Interview
Employee In Bellevue WA Interview (Neutral Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at Outerwall.
Interview Details – This process takes too long. There is no reason why hiring a position can take months. Follow up by human resources is horrible. You never know if they received your application and if you are interviewed unless the job is offered to you. Otherwise you never hear back.
Field Technician Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)

Very Easy Interview
Technology Manager Interview (Neutral Experience; Very Easy Interview)
I applied in-person and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Outerwall in September 2012.
Interview Details – Weird. I was hired before I knew it. They had been waiting for so long to fill the position by the time they found me as a good fit they were desperate to fill it ... with good reason. They were way behind ... business experts directing technical affairs - a train-wreck in progress. I was in fact a little miffed that they didn't grill me harder ... subsequently I think they never appreciated what I brought to the team and were reluctant to recognize how often I pulled the business's bacon out of the fire. That said, the guys that did the interviewing were all laid off when our venture got the ax.
Negotiation Details – They offered me 10k more than I said I expected, which was good because this is a more $ place to live than I expected.
