Pros

It’s very good balance of working and living. It’s very well structured to make success. Payment is decent.

Cons

Unfortunately, you won’t be able to go that much up no matter what success you may have, it’s all about “office politics “. There is a deep overlapping in many areas, so instead of a support you may

  1. Human Resources Assistant Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview
    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 week. I interviewed at Southern Wine & Spirits of America (Syosset, NY)

    Interview

    A HR employee contacted me to set up an interview with her manager. I met the manager who was nice. She did ask several opened ended interview questions, and I found it difficult to come up with some answers on the spot as I was nervous. I don't think the job was the right fit for me, and I did not get an offer, but I did appreciate that they considered me for the position and sent me a polite email letting me know they chose someone else.
    Interview

    "Name a time when you were given complex information on the job and how you dealt with that." "Lots of "Name a time" questions with different scenarios. Not a big fan of open ended interview questions, but unfortunately you have to be prepared for them. I think I was asked at least 5 of them.
