    I have been working at Bluestem Brands full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Medium size company so easier access to leadership if and when needed. Very data driven and constant desire to test and learn. Constantly innovating so never a shortage of new and exciting work. Still feel there is a good balance between work and home life.

    Cons

    Challenging retail environment - no different than most other retailers (Target, BestBuy, etc.) are faced with. Have the advantage of not having retail stores but nonetheless face similar challenges.

    Advice to Management

    Need executive leadership to support Integration efforts - change is never easy but sometimes necessary. Open Senior executive roles isn't a good excuse to send conflicting messages.

    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.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

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