Director Interview

Director

Interviewed at BevMo

Interview Details Had a pretty good conversation with the recruiter. Was told needed to wait until new vp started ton present candidates. Found it odd that over a period of waiting 2 months for someone to start and recruiter contacting me via email almost weekly that all of a sudden I was sent a rejection email.
Why would they go through a screening process, ask if relocation assistance was needed, and ask if a bonus was needed before the hiring manager had a chance to start if they didn't know what the person was looking for? Also found it odd to be asked about relocation and bonus as part of a screening.

Interview Question – Would you need relocation and bonus?   Answer Question

Seasonal Sales Associate Interview

Seasonal Sales Associate
Santee, CA (US)

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at BevMo in November 2013.

Interview Details I applied online and got called for an interview two weeks later. The manager did the interview standing at the front of the store. He asked about school as I am a student. He also asked about my availability. Depending on the location, they may hope you have knowledge of certain beverages over others. The online assessment is scenario-based questions and does not take too long. After the interview, I was asked to re-apply as a seasonal position. A bit sneaky of a move, but it was a good job for seasonal.

Interview Question – Do you know the most about wine, beer, or spirits?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation. They started me at $9.00 which was a dollar above CA minimum wage and the pay everyone at that store got at first.

Cashier Interview

Cashier
Murrieta, CA (US)

I applied through an employee referral - interviewed at BevMo in April 2013.

Interview Details It was very awkward interview. The head cashier brought in five of us into a room and interviewed is all the same time. He would go from one person to the next person asking the same question over and over. The questions that he asked were not relevant to the position that we were applying for some of the information was personal and was awkward to share with the group.

Interview Question – I don't remember the specific question but there were several personal questions asked it's inappropriate   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – It was no negotiation they hired minimum-wage.

Sales Associate Interview

Sales Associate
Phoenix, AZ (US)

I applied online - interviewed at BevMo in July 2014.

Interview Details Applied maybe a month or so before hearing anything back. In fact it was so long I had forgotten I had applied there as this would be just a second part time job. Had two interviews, one with store manager then with assistant manager and immediately after the interview I was sent to do drug test. The interview was pretty easy, the store manager just went through my resume and asked "why did I leave this place and this place" and so on. I already currently work for a local winery and to my surprise my wine knowledge didn't come in to question. Second interview was more in depth about my involvement with the winery, pay, hours, and then to go pee in a cup. Today I just received through email all the information packets I needed to fill out. I wonder how training will go.

Interview Question – Why did you leave (insert job/company here)   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I wasn't given an option to negotiate as he said "we start all new employees at 9 an hour" but then went on to say something about getting me focused on the wine department or wine specialist or something and he said pay should go up.
