I have been working at Dick Blick full-time (More than a year)
While working for Blick, the thing that I have come to appreciate the most is the people I have worked with. They are thorough in the hiring process and there for have incredible staff. It can be an extremely job as well working with so many materials, as well as the information learned from customers.
My biggest complaint would have to be compensation. It is understandable that sales associates make minimum wage or slightly above, but management staff is under compensated. Being so strenuous in the hiring process it can be difficult to move up into management. This is also made more difficult by the fact that corporate can be difficult to reach and tend to not be interested in helping the management.
I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Dick Blick.
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).
