    A typical interview with 1 person. Then after a nice conversation a panel of dept. workers came in with a list of questions for me. I answered them with ease and felt good about my answers. Then was told that someone from HR would be in touch.

    Copywriter Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Warren, PA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Bluestem Brands (Warren, PA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    I emailed a resume and was contacted by a recruiter who conducted a short initial interview. She then arranged a second interview. I met with two people- the copy director and the director for creative. The male director of creative was much more personable than the copy director, but they were both friendly enough. It was clear that I didn't have the level of experience that they were looking for, although they still had me meet with the VP of Creative before I left. Experience was much more important to them than potential, from what I could tell. They never contacted me afterward, which I know is typical.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Bluestem Brands (Middleton, MA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Lengthy, but fairly easy. I actually took control of interview. Interviewer was easy-going and friendly. I got a good vibe and am excited to work at Bluestem. The interview overall was longer than I expected, I met with three individuals. Two of them seemed great, one however, seemed disinterested and annoyed to be involved in the process.

    Negotiation

    Their initial compensation offer was in line with my expectations and I agreed.

    Merchandise Specialist Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Bluestem Brands.

    Interview

    First interview was with HR over the phone. Basic questions, although the interviewer showed no interest in any of my answers. Surprisingly, heard back about a week later and asked to come in for an in person interview. The second interview was very easy. No behavioral interview questions, just discussion about the position and my goals. I thought it was a little odd that the interviewers kept saying over and over how difficult the position was. They repeated it many times, which sort of turned me away. Was told i would hear back in 1-2 weeks. Never did hear back after over 6 weeks, and i didn't feel the need to follow up with them since I received an offer from a different company during that time.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Bluestem Brands (Eden Prairie, MN) in November 2014.

    Interview

    Laid back and relaxed atmosphere, panel of 4 people asked questions. Went through the last six or eight years of work experience. Interview was conducted in large open area with make shift conference room separated by dividers, was a little noisy and distracting at first. Pretty general review of past work, not many difficult technical coding questions, fairly high-level discussions.
