    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.

    I worked at Blackhawk Network full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I enjoyed working in the marketing department. The CMO leads a creative and innovative team. Loved being part of her team. You can quickly make a strong contribution in the organization. The culture promotes collaboration and a one team philosophy. Great group of people. The executive team is also engaged and approachable.

    Cons

    Blackhawk is dynamic and fast paced. I really enjoy that type of culture and believe it’s actually a pro. However, it may not be for everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. Continue making Blackhawk Network #1 in branded currency.

    I have been working at Blackhawk Network full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I've been with the company for over 2 years. Recently I've received horrible news about my health. In respect to my health I needed to advise my immediate management of my current situation and how it could impact my attendance and my performance in my job. I expected nothing in return but acknowledgement in my email communication. To my surprise I received an overwhelming response of support and team work on how my department will help me in every way possible to ensure my success, not only in my well being but also in my job duties. There is such a sense of family and friends come through for you in a time of need. Both my co-wokers, peers, management all have stepped forward to ensure my success. I'm truly surprised and truly appreciate to work for a great company

    Cons

    13 accounting periods in a year. Year end should be in the middle of the year in June or July.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for being "real" and being a compasionate group of Managers and VP's.

    Pros

    Very flexible, you can make your own hours. Great management, pay is good, great car allowance. Company provides excellent training and support system. They also provide all the tools needed in the field.

  9. "Large but very friendly company"

    I worked at Blackhawk Network as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    From day one, everybody was friendly and helpful, from immediate coworkers to the people I delivered mail and packages to.

    Cons

    The only drawback from working at a large company such as this, was the few computer systems used were not updated with the employee cube numbers. This sometimes made delivering packages a challenge, but as stated above, everybody was willing to help point one in the right direction.

    Pros

    What a wonderful team to work with. The support, the dedication, and the fun that we have is constant, and I love it here!

    Cons

    The Reno office is by far the best place I have worked. Considering there are many "call centers" in this area, Blackhawk Network Reno sets itself apart from being just another call center, it is truly a place to learn and grow!

    Advice to Management

    Leadership: Keep up the positive feedback, and support. I am appreciative for each and everyone of you.

    To my fellow teammates: Thank you for making everyday great!
