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 have been working at Blackhawk Network part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I have only been employed with them a short time but I am very impressed with my field supervisor, manager, and the HR coordinator. They are so engaged, very easy to talk to, and seem to really care about their employees.

    Cons

    I wish they had full time positions available. Hopefully, an opportunity to obtain full time may surface,

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing! I am very pleased so far.

    Account Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Blackhawk Network (Pleasanton, CA).

    Interview

    There was a phone screen with HR. Then the following week I was brought in for in person interview with team member and a couple of phone interviews. They followed up the next month for a final in-person interview with the hiring manager's manager. Overall the process was average. What was annoying as that they didn't bother to contact me via email or phone to let me know that I didn't get the job. The other thing that I noticed was that when I was brought in, the vibe of the department was not good. (People did not look happy.) I just got a bad feeling about the place and was actually relieved that they didn't offer me a position because they don't pay very well.
