    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Black Diamond (Salt Lake City, UT) in March 2014.

    Interview

    Earlier this year I interviewed for a marketing role with Black Diamond. I participated in two phone interviews, followed by six hours of in-person interviews at the BD HQ. Lastly, I had a follow up call with the hiring manager. In general the staff was professional, however some of the questions were more focused on creating a "gotcha" dynamic, rather then being rigorous and meaningful to the discussion.

    Also, I was never informed whether they selected someone else as a candidate. I had a normal follow-up email exchange with the hiring manager, then heard nothing. I reached out about a month later and was told that they were still deciding and that they would get back to me. They did not. After participating in a total of eight interviews over the course of two months, I expected that the common courtesy was to at least wrap up the process with an email notifying me that another applicant was selected. As a fan of the brand, I was disappointed by this experience. I had higher expectations for how I believe a company should operate.
