    I worked at Black Box full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    My immediate management was fair, responsive and supportive. The company was making efforts to repair challenges .

    Cons

    In the end company had lost the competitive edge. Operated as many different, individual franchise branches vs a unified single company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring the company together as one.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Black Box.

    Interview Details

I went for an interview, and I was interviewed, drug tested, and sent for a driving record before even getting an application. Seems they will hire you quickly if they believe you will work hard, and you need to be ready to do that.
