    Purchasing Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Boise, ID
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Blackhawk Network (Boise, ID).

    Interview

    Tested on 10 key speed although it wasn't used in the job. Required drug test screening before interview was scheduled. Face to face sit-down at business with a potential co-worker and immediate manager. Very relaxed and positive interchange.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked if I had any purchasing experience and said the phrase Purchase Order experience was one reason they chose my resume since the job involved creating purchase orders for product orders needed from overseas.   1 Answer

    Implementation Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pleasanton, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Blackhawk Network (Pleasanton, CA) in August 2017.

    Interview

    2 Phone Screens, one was an attempted no show by the group director. Onsite with 6 people in layers over a period of two hours. Redundant and filled with one sided entry level questions and overt attempts to talk me out of the job while telling me about all the gaps. Big waste of time as they had me fly in from another state. Leadership stating that she is afraid I will get bord and did not seem to see value in my 3 degrees and 5 certifications, demonstrated by the eye roll when I suggested that I may want to certify in another area that may be of benefit to the job.

    Partner Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pleasanton, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Blackhawk Network (Pleasanton, CA) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Applied via HR referral which led to 2 phone interviews and interview with 3 team members in Pleasanton. I enjoyed each of the people I spoke with and felt more than qualified for the position. I was told they would try to get back in touch in the next 3-4 days.

    However, I never received ANY feedback on my interview or next steps after multiple inquiries and attempts to follow up. Recruiter kept giving excuses saying she was waiting to hear back from team Members. Ultimately 8 weeks from start of process I finally received a call only to tell me that they were "reworking" the position, so I would see it posted but it is essentially that it was"on hold" and if after they rework the job my background is a good match they would be back in touch.

    Not impressed with their lengthy process and lack of follow up.

    Interview Questions

    Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pleasanton, CA

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Blackhawk Network (Pleasanton, CA).

    Interview

    There was a phone screen with HR. Then the following week I was brought in for in person interview with team member and a couple of phone interviews. They followed up the next month for a final in-person interview with the hiring manager's manager. Overall the process was average. What was annoying as that they didn't bother to contact me via email or phone to let me know that I didn't get the job. The other thing that I noticed was that when I was brought in, the vibe of the department was not good. (People did not look happy.) I just got a bad feeling about the place and was actually relieved that they didn't offer me a position because they don't pay very well.

    Interview Questions

    Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Pleasanton, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at Blackhawk Network (Pleasanton, CA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Pretty long process, I went through about 3 rounds of interviews, 2 phone and 1 in person interview with about 4 people. The interviews themselves were very typical nothing too crazy. The longest part was the waiting in between and waiting to hear from the recruiter. Sometimes I'd reach out to the recruiter and not get a response back for about a week and then would be asked for another round of interviews.

    Interview Questions

    • How long I saw myself working for a company such as Blackhawk.   Answer Question

    Associate Partner Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pleasanton, CA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Blackhawk Network (Pleasanton, CA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was great. The recruiter I worked with was very fast to respond and helpful setting up time that worked for me, the interviews are two hours long so if you are currently working it's helpful that they are flexible.

     The interviewers asked questions but they also give you plenty of time to ask them questions and discuss anything you would like to about the company and/or job. They used behavioral interview questions but also just asked questions about your past/present position and why you think you would be a good addition to the team and company.

    Overall very positive and pleasant experience. I will definitely apply here again.
