    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.

    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.

    Average Interview

    It was onsite meeting with the engineering team members. I met individually with about 8 team members that asked technical and skill set questions. They also asked questions about previous job skills and if I had any gift card or payment industry experience. In general the interview was fine and the team was professional and thorough.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Blackhawk Network.

    Interview

    The phone screen with the Recruiter turned me off to this company. First, she was about 15 minutes late contacting me. Then she proceeded to ask me why I was looking for another job when I had only been with my previous job four months? I had to tell her twice, that I was not looking, that her coordinator found me and it didn't hurt to look into another opportunity. Then she reviewed by work experience and proceeded to talk negative about my previous employer. After the screen, I didn't bother to follow up with the rest of the interviewing process.

    Account Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Blackhawk Network (New York, NY) in November 2015.

    Interview

    First I did a phone interview with HR, which only lasted less than 30-minutes. She asked basic questions and wanted to know more about my skills. Had a good experience and told me the next step was speaking with the director of the department. Once I passed that interview which was similar to the HR one, I got called in to meet with some of the team members. I had 30-minutes per/team member and my interview lasted two-hours. The team leaders and I interacted really well. I even meet with the VP of Sales and she was great to talk to. It didn't feel like a traditional (intense) interview. I think they wanted to make sure I was a good fit with the team and vise-versa.

    Negotiation

    The price they offered seemed about right with my work experience and skills, however, I did ask for more than the offered price. They where welling to negotiate and only took two days to get back to me.

    Senior Director Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 7+ months. I interviewed at Blackhawk Network (Pleasanton, CA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    I was put through multiple interviews over a 7 month period of time (mostly 1:1 interviews). In every interview, everyone was very impressed and we felt like we were already bonding as a team. I went through the process professionally & graciously, even though they apologized on many occasions about the process dragging out for so long. They finally made me a great offer & 3 days later they retracted the offer (they claimed it was a budget issue). They said they would stay in touch, but after 5 months, I've not heard a single word from them. I wanted to share this so others won't be fooled by their promises.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Blackhawk Network (Lewisville, TX).

    Interview

    Phone interview with HR, Second interview with Manager, and then proceeded to third interview. Don't be surprised if it goes very well that they ask you to stay for third interview the same day instead of having you come back. The office atmosphere is very quiet and it looks as if it is a small company, but don't be fooled. Make sure that you are completely professional. Atmosphere is business casual, but I wore a suit to stand out anyway and it worked. They did not talk me down from my salary request.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Blackhawk Network (Pleasanton, CA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Two rounds of interviews, interview style casual to moderate. Basic questions, a lot about whether you fit the culture. It's really on weather they like you like you or not. I felt I had a good rapport with the interviewers, however I could have conducted/presented myself a little more professionally...ie they expect you in a dress or pant suit
