    Content Designer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Blackboard (Washington, DC) in February 2016.

    Interview

    The most lengthy, in-depth interview process I've ever been on at 3 hours long. Their HR person talked to me on the phone on a Monday, then on Tuesday I had a call with the hiring manager, and by Friday I had to come in for an in-person interview having prepared a 30-minute presentation (with slides and all) on any technical topic of my choosing. Second part was an activity that not clear directions were given on and not a lot of team participation even though it was supposed to be a team exercise. Last part was a regular interview.

    Senior Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Blackboard in December 2013.

    Interview

    Overall, the process was a bit cumbersome and very lengthy. At the time, the company was going through serious reorganization, and everything just seemed a bit "off" on all fronts. Communication was delayed, and sometimes contradictory information was given. The people were all incredibly wonderful, so no complaints about the staffing...just the process. It appears to need some streamlining and coherency. I interviewed with multiple people across multiple areas and verticals, though the position was never sold as a "matrix-reporting" position, it sure appeared that way. I also picked up some internal chatter that seemed heavy on the office politics.

    Again, not a bad experience, buy honestly one of the more odd interview experiences I have had

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing at all out of the ordinary. Really pretty basic stuff. Lots of "how would you..."   Answer Question

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Blackboard.

    Interview

    The first interview was via phone with the immediate manager, it was very relaxed, most of all the manager wanted to know how I would fit in the position, my working style and how much I knew about the market and job responsibilities.

    The second (and third) interviews were with the (Senior) Account Executives with whom I would be working and the Director Sales. The interview with the Account Executives were about how much I knew about the customer needs, the trends, the market, and so on while the interview with the Director Sales was more focused in my sales approach.
