    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Southern Wine & Spirits of America (Union City, CA (US)) in May 2013.

    Interview

    Usually the interview process is with the recruiter and the future manager. Pretty straight forward questions- typical questions. Once they decide they want you for the position; they advise human resources and the process begins. The process all depends on how quick you can go and do the drug test, the physical test, etc. For this position you will drive your personally vehicle; thus one needs to go and change their insurance plan and provide proof to the company.

    It was very informal. They did ask for a specific skill in creating pivot tables. Unfortunately, I had not ever heard of pivot tables and was pretty much told I wasn't getting the job on the spot. It takes a lot to get in to work for this company... Mainly knowing someone.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Southern Wine & Spirits of America in February 2014.

    Interview

    I had an interview at the Miramar location for the inventory service specialist position. I met with the human resources manager first. We had a brief conversation in which she asked me to tell her a little bit about myself, and then she gave me information about the company. Afterward, I met with the department supervisor and manager and interviewed with both of them in more detail. They had questions listed on a paper. They asked me about 5 different questions, some in which were hypothetical. I nailed the interview. I thought I did very well. Unfortunately, I never got an offer for the position, bit they also failed to advise me that they had chosen someone else for the job, so I was sort of just left hanging around waiting to hear back from them and got nothing.

    Interview Questions

    • The most difficult question they asked me on the interview was how do I deal with difficult coworkers or customers.   Answer Question
