    Easy Interview

    Interview

    Very laid back and comfortable - even digitally!
    Mostly Behavioral questions, definitely practice using the STAR Method.
    They really are mostly looking for great leadership skills and to emphasize those in the interview process.

    Super personable interview process. They definitely focused on making me comfortable and centering the questions around being conversational. I had 2 interviews with them and the entire process was around 3 weeks from the initial contact to the offer.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at E. & J. Gallo Winery in November 2020.

    Interview

    I just had my last round of interviews last week, and have enjoyed the process so far. I have felt very in the loop and supported through each step; my recruiter even called me the day of my last interview to answer some last minute questions that I had and give me some pointers. All three of my interviews were done within about 6 weeks of each other so it’s been a relatively short process compared to some other companies processes. I am still waiting on an email regarding an offer/no offer for a position.

    Interview

    Virtual video interview was awkward (aren’t all of them?) but never felt pressured or unfair. Seemed like an honest assessment for a potential sales role. The questions were generic but on target.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at E. & J. Gallo Winery.

    Interview

    First I spoke with someone from the company at career fair. That conversation was great and I was really excited about the role. I was then invited to a first round interview. The interviewer was not as friendly as the first person I spoke with. They came off as cocky and uninterested. The questions were asked in a way that was very difficult to answer. Instead of asking one thing at a time, they gave me three entirely different questions all at once, which made it difficult to stay on topic. Instead of taking time to get to know me and have a conversation, it felt strange and very scripted. I asked a few questions at the end about culture, and the interviewer’s answers were very brief and not convincing. After this experience I was no longer interested in the job anyway.
