    Junior Copywriter (Marketing) Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Blue Nile (Seattle, WA) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Twenty minutes prior to my interview call, I received an email saying that Blue Nile had filled the role the night before. I found this incredibly disrespectful of my time and energy. They couldn't even call me to tell me, which added insult to injury. If the unorganized and inconsiderate HR process is any reflection of the internal processes and structures of Blue Nile, I do not suggest bothering to apply.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Blue Nile (Seattle, WA) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Submitted resume through their website. Received a call back almost two months later. Had one phone interview with the department supervisor than another with a rude department manager who called out of the blue in the middle of a family birthday dinner. He expected me to excuse myself to chat with him despite being at the dinner table. After the calls they ran a background check then after I passed I was invited to Seattle to interview with only 3 days notice to buy an airline ticket and book a place to stay. Cost me nearly $1500. Had a tour of the facility. Interview went well despite the rude department manager who always seemed to interrupt others while talking. The department supervisors were also there and were very friendly and easygoing. I left and heard nothing back for almost a month when I received a generic email from HR saying they went with someone else.

    Staff Accountant Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Blue Nile (Seattle, WA).

    Interview

    Applied online, got called in for an interview with three people which turned out to be four in three separate rounds. Three rounds of interview, the first with a team member who was told less than an hour prior to the interview, the second with the other two team members, the last with the hiring manager. Mostly behavioral questions, not technical at all. Was little wishy washy/uncertain/unsure when asked about the turn over rate, team dynamics and hours. Don't seem prepared or invested in finding the right person. Very easy interview, so long as you had some sort of accounting experience or social/interview skills.

    Web Content Specialist Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Blue Nile.

    Interview

    I had a very odd experience. It began with a quick phone interview, which was perfectly normal, and then they called me in for an in person. I wasn't given any info prior to the interview, I got there and was told I'd be meeting with 5 or 6 separate people for a half hour each. I believe the job posting was also misleading- I was under the impression that it was a content creation role and it wasn't. I was not at all qualified for the role so I'm still unclear on why they interviewed me in the first place. There was a short HTML test which I didn't do great on, again, because this wasn't a role I would've applied for if it had been clear from the description. By the third interviewer, I thought I was doing OK especially considering the situation. The interviewer was asking me questions like normal, and suddenly left the room for a minute, came back, and in a panic told me there was some sort of crisis with the website and I had to leave.

    I never got any sort of follow up, my only point of contact had been the receptionist so I emailed her to reschedule and never heard anything. Maybe that was their way of telling me I wasn't going to get hired. An email would've sufficed.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Blue Nile (Seattle, WA).

    Interview

    After getting through phone interview, the in-person interview was conducted by 3 people, hiring manager came in last. Interview process might be different depending on the role. Learned a lot about Blue Nile during the process and their turn around time was very quick. Heard back from them less than a week after in person interview.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Blue Nile (Seattle, WA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Quick turnaround for contact/outreach and phone interview scheduled fairly fast after applying. Manager of the team very spastic and often cut me off in the middle of speaking over the phone. Communication inconsistent thereafter. Rushed to bring me in for in-person interview, then never heard from them. Based on the employee reviews, I'd say it was a silver lining not to have gotten the job.

    Interview

    Basic phone interview, the job post doesn't mention that this is a UNPAID internship. Couldn't take the internship because I need to pay rent. Started off with your usual phone interview questions, but the phone interview wasn't that long.
