I applied online. I interviewed at Balsam Brands (United States) in Nov 2020

Interview

It is a lengthy process that took 9 total interviews over 2 months. half of those interviews will be on the easier side with junior to mid-level people, the rest are much harder with VPs and hiring managers that come prepared with many behavioral questions. They will also ask for past work references

I applied online. I interviewed at Balsam Brands (United States) in May 2020

Interview

Applied online and had a ~30min zoom call with a recruiter based in their Boise, ID office. The recruiter was very friendly and approachable, and I really enjoyed my conversation with her. She was very clear about laying out the recruiting process (initial interview, Excel assessment, interview with hiring manager, big interview day with multiple people in the company to replace what would've been an in-person on campus day). The questions were pretty much all standard behavioral. She did ask me for my salary expectations for the role in that interview, so just be prepared to provide an expected range. After that round, I was sent an Excel assessment with a time limit of 1 hour. I didn't get past that assessment. Overall it was a really positive experience, even though I didn't move forward in the process. Seems like a fantastic company with a strong, positive culture. Obviously they care about your skills and what you bring to the table, but it was also pretty clear to me that they care about you as a human being, and want to find people who are strong culture fits. Highly recommend anyone thinking about Balsam to hit that apply button.

I applied online. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at Balsam Brands (Boise, ID) in Aug 2019

Interview

The interview process for me was extremely long (over 7 weeks). Received my first email from Balsam on August 7th and didn't receive an offer until September 27th. Started with an assessment, then 3 video interviews, a 5 hour in office interview period, a 4th video interview, and then reference checks. The process seemed very long considering they kept reminding me I would be a late hire with their busy season quickly approaching. The interview process was initially explained as an assessment with 2 video interviews and a final in office interview and when I kept finding out about additional steps I became frustrated with the process. The actual interviews and questions themselves are not too hard, you just have similar conversations with a number of different people. All in all, I ended up getting an offer and accepting. They REALLY want to make sure you are a good fit into their culture.

    Interview

    After applying online, I was contacted a few weeks later for a phone interview. Interview was quite extensive and took about 45 minutes to complete. After going through the basics about myself and what I'm looking for with my career, I was asked some practical questions with real-world applications to the position I was applying for and what my salary expectations would be (no information regarding salary was listed in the job description). It took another few weeks before I received an email response that I would not be progressing in the interview process.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Balsam Brands (New York, NY) in Feb 2018

    Interview

    Contacted by a recruiter and had a great conversation. Was passed onto creative director and had another great conversation. Both very friendly people who asked specific and meaningful/relevant questions. I felt I was bring evaluated not just for talent, but also personality. Ultimately, I was not a good match due to my areas of expertise not being aligned with their needs. Recruiter got in touch quickly to let me know and offered feedback on decision and actually followed up (see above).
