    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Constellation Brands.

    Interview

    I only had a phone interview, but the woman conducting it was almost 20 minutes late and didn't even apologize for being late. They either had someone else already lined up for the role or she clearly didn't want to talk to me because she was giving one word answers and not telling me anything about the role. For a big corporation, I was in shock at how she treated me. Told me she'd get back to me the following week (which I knew she wouldn't) and I never heard from them again.

    Associate Manager, Brand Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Constellation Brands (San Francisco, CA (US)) in January 2020.

    Interview

    My interview process with Constellation Brands was one of the most disappointing interview experiences that I've ever had. It began with a recruiter phone screen, hiring manager phone screen, 2hr onsite panel interview, and finally 1hr onsite interview with VP of Marketing. While everyone that I interacted with was polite and warm welcoming, the communication throughout the process was terrible and ended with me being completely ghosted by the recruiter. It is important to point out that I was commuting 1.5hrs+ each way to both onsite interviews, with associated traffic, parking fees, and two days taken off of work. After my final interview there was silence from the recruiter for 3 weeks, despite my weekly emails, calls, and voicemails, which were all unreturned. This was an extremely long process, spanning from 12/1-2/14, and my time felt extremely disrespected when I was not given the professional courtesy of an update on my candidacy. It was not until I reached out the the recruiting coordinator who was kind and responsive (thank you Vincent!), that the recruiter sent me an email citing the WRONG position and explained that my expected compensation was too high (incorrect based on 1st phone screen). I followed up with two phone calls to make sure we were speaking on the correct job, only to find out that she "thought" the job might have already been filled. While I understand it is not always common to get updated on your candidacy status in early rounds, by the final step in the process it should be common decency. I was shocked that for such an established company, they seem to lack respect and professionalism in their hiring process.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Constellation Brands in October 2019.

    Interview

    Technology is embedded in the finance dept, big red flag. Managers ran the interview, not the engineers. It was clear this company doesn't empower its employees. I detected a lot of micromanagement, stress and hiding of key details concerning the environment, and what the job actually entails. I wasn't given a clear answer on most of my questions. Everything about the interview process told me to stay away.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Constellation Brands.

    Interview

    Talent Acquisition manager was very responsive and helpful throughout the whole process. Interview process is long but this could be due to the job being posted over the holiday break. The aptitude test is a bit tricky but not to hard.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Constellation Brands in January 2019.

    Interview

    I had an initial screener interview with HR, where we talked about the specifics of the job and my background. Then, I had a phone interview with the position manager where there were a lot of situational questions. The next step was a case study presentation and panel interview, with more situational questions. Then a final phone interview which was more about personality/culture fit. HR was very communicative through the whole process.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Constellation Brands (Chicago, IL (US)).

    Interview

    The interviews went well and they moved quickly from HR phone screen to Manager Phone Screen to In person interview, however after the in person interview, which went pretty well, never heard from the company again despite follow ups to the hiring team. Blowing someone off after a phone screen I get but if someone takes the time to prepare to actually come to see you in person on your schedule then owe them the courtesy of a follow up.
