In an effort to develop a pipeline of high caliber talent with the intention of hiring interns upon graduation, the Blackhawk Network Internship Program is designed to introduce college students to Blackhawk. The goal is to recruit talented students to work on meaningful projects, make a contribution to the organization, and ultimately extend the students' learning opportunities beyond the traditional classroom setting.


There are several requirements Blackhawk considers when recruiting our Interns: 

  • Student should be in their Junior or Senior year of college (should not have graduated college).
  • Student’s college major and skill-set should be applicable to the open intern assignment.
  • Both the Hiring Manager and Student’s long-term goal would to be hired into a FTE position upon graduation.


The intern program is structured to benefit the organization and to allow the student an opportunity to gain hands-on experience in a professional work environment. Throughout their assignment, Interns have an opportunity to network with other interns at various events, partner with a manager with a professional background within the career field represented by the internship, and present a final project to Blackhawk Network employees outlining the experience gained during their assignment.

    I worked at Blackhawk Network part-time (More than a year)


    My managers were amazing. They are two of the best managers I have ever had. Very thorough, always willing to answer questions, ALWAYS voicing their appreciation for our hard work, and communicated with everyone so new projects were understood completely. I am sorry to have to leave. (Left due to personal family health crisis)


    I wish it was full time

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. Kelly and Erin, I think you are amazing.

    Inside Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lewisville, TX
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Blackhawk Network (Lewisville, TX) in March 2020.


    I attended an Open House at the Lewisville, TX facility for filling a training class of ten new recruits on a new sales team. Two parts to the session for hiring, one group around lunchtime, another late afternoon. HR personnel screening very professional. The Hiring manager was was very robotic, scripted, and came across as intimidating with attitude toward candidates. No welcoming to the company, no thank you for stopping by and considering a career. Very cold. Explained new training class and immediately went into litany of how many calls one could make per day that would turn into closed deals. Not inspiring at all that it was a fun place to work. More like a sweatshop. To HR's credit they narrowed their ten people who would OBEY down quickly, most likely junior level types who could be controlled. HR apologized for how poorly the job pay was.
