    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Dick Blick.

    Interview

    Short, impersonal and kind of judgy. I heard from a friend that worked there that the hiring manager only wanted to hire people he knew rather than other applicants (at the time I had applied).

    Merchandising Coordinator Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Dick Blick (Highland Park, IL).

    Interview

    Starts with a phone interview. Short and to the point. It's the basic first impression. Then if they like you, you go to round two. An older gentleman, acting as a hurting manager, will talk for a long time then get to a few questions. If you meet with people in the department you're applying for that's a good sign. They'll ask you valid questions about your work experience.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Dick Blick (Brooklyn, NY) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Tamara, the General Manager interviewed me 1st. A pleasant, caring professional who is direct and understanding. Common practice questions included, 'why did you choose Blick's?', 'tell me about your prior jobs', 'share with me both a positive and negative experience in a past job'. Very thorough and fair. The process was clear from beginning to end.

    Interview Questions

    • "Describe to me a scenario where you left a positive impression from a negative situation at a prior job" (I'm paraphrasing, so this may not be the exact wording, but the context is there.)   1 Answer

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Dick Blick.

    Interview

    Was called by the hiring manager and she said everything looked good, and that I can come in for an interview. I was told to expect a call again for a more accurate interview time. Weeks passed and didn't hear anything. Called back to follow up, and although she was in store, the cashier was told to tell me she'd call back. Mostly it was just unprofessional and annoying. I heard from current employees that the new store manager sucks anyways. No thanks, lol.
