    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Blue Buffalo (Las Vegas, NV) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Numerous phone interviews and one in person interview. Interviewed with screener, hiring manager, and then hiring manager's boss. Made it to final stage. Did not get a call or email informing me that I was not selected. When I reached out to hiring manager to see if position was filled, did not get any response. The process was fine, but no one had the courage or empathy to let me know what was going on.

    Sales Strategy Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Blue Buffalo in April 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online via LinkedIn. The posting kept getting deleted and reposted every week but redirected to the same posting on the Blue Buffalo site. I received a call 3 weeks later asking for a phone interview. Found the interviewer to be pretentious and it turned me off from working for the company. He wanted short, concise answers with specific keywords so he could fill out a worksheet he said he had. Once he felt like I talked too long or gave enough buzzwords, he would interrupt me by saying "OK OK OK OK great thanks, next question...” He asked me to explain most analytical terms I mentioned that he should have understood (base, lift, etc). I declined a second interview and am unsure how he is allowed in an applicant-facing role.

    Interview Questions

    • Normal top-line questions. Asked me to give a basic timeline of their company, asked for an overview of current job duties, why I want to work there, how my experience connects to the position, asked me my current salary.   1 Answer

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Blue Buffalo (Palm Beach, FL).

    Interview

    I met with my regional manager at a restaurant, and got lunch for free. We discussed what my role would be and I was asked other questions pertaining to the job. I was also asked some questions pertaining to my love for pets, which in my mind solidified my opinion that this company truly does care for their product, and wants fellow pet lovers as employees.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Being that this is a part-time job, there wasn't much negotiation. However, this job pays well and has benefits, so no negotiations were needed.
