    Operations Analyst Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Blackboard.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by a recruiter who said that the hiring manager wanted him to set up a phone interview with myself and a few members of the staff. The process was fairly quick as I had the interviews just a few short days later which consisted of individual interviews with two staff members with a similar title to the job posting, one VP, and the direct manager for the position. Everyone was very professional and knowledgeable. I was left with a great impression of the company.

    I thought the interview went well but never heard back from the recruiter. I contacted him several times through email and voice mail but he did not return any of them. Yes, I wanted the job, but I wish he would have sent me a quick 'no thank you', especially considering that I spend an entire day of my life interviewing with several members of the company. I eventually saw the position re-posted online.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Blackboard in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    Setting up the interview took a little long with people being on leave and out of town, but from my experience the staff is very friendly and are genuinely looking for someone in the right fit for this position. Everyone I spoke to was very personable and their questions not only let me understand more about the position but they listened to me and answered my questions too. I never felt nervous because it was so relaxed and easy to talk to everyone.

    Phone interview with HR recruiter, then four interviews with two team members, Director or Global Talent Acquisition, and VP of Communications.

Still have not received an offer or a rejection--even after reaching out to the HR recruiter AND the VP.
