    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Blackbaud (Charleston, SC) in February 2020.

    Interview

    Applied online. They contacted me within 1 week to complete a self-recorded video interview with pre-selected questions using Hirevue. After submitting, I was contacted 2 weeks later to come in for a face-to-face interview at their Charleston, SC office. Process took 2.5 hours, with 1 hour of shadowing a current BDR and 3 thirty minute interviews back-to-back with different managers. Very pleasant/conversational.

    Sales Account Executive Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Blackbaud (Austin, TX) in January 2020.

    Interview

    They employed a HireVue interview. There were 5 questions. There were 3 pre-recorded questions, you had 2 minutes (or so) to answer it, and there was no "do overs." They alternated the video responses with 2 essay questions which you had unlimited time to answer. For a sales candidate, it took away any chance to create rapport, read your audience and make necessary adjustments. I understand, if they are getting a ton of resumes, it helps to fish for the very best, but I'm not sure this is the best way to find true talent.

    Interview Questions

    • Something that I would want them to know about me (last question).   1 Answer
