Management Development Program Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at E. & J. Gallo in November 2013.

Interview Details – Met their head of HR as well as two other District Managers at a career fair. They liked my resume and had a great conversation with them. They invited me back the next day for an interview. I interview with 3 of them. Interview was rather unorganized, had multiple people asking me questions at once. Nothing complicated(why do you want to work in sales, why gallo, etc.). They then sent me on a shadow day. The shadow went well, really just engage with the person and make good conversation, be positive, etc. That then went well and they sent me to their regional conference. I was with a handful of students. I thought the day went great. Went through a series of 5-10 interviews. Once again, nothing tricky.

I ended up getting a call a week or so later. I thought it went really well, but they didn't offer me a position. their head of HR wouldn't give me any feedback, nothing to work on, and was a bit rude when telling me. The experience was extremely positive and straight forward, but I was rather unsatisfied when he wouldn't give me any reasoning behind it.

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 days - interviewed at E. & J. Gallo in November 2013.

Interview Details – Submitted my resume online while applying to be in their college undergraduate recruiting process. I was asked to pick a time and date for an on-campus interview. The interview was 2 on 1 and was very friendly and relaxed.

Afterwards I was accepted to their two-day recruiting event at their Modesto headquarters. It involved a tour of their campus, two dinners, one breakfast, and one lunch; all with Gallo employees. It also had four 1-on-1 interviews (average difficulty with behavioral questions) and a team case study and presentation.

Interview Question – Give an example of how you went above and beyond.   Answer Question

Very Easy Interview

Operations Team Leader II Interview

Operations Team Leader II

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at E. & J. Gallo in September 2013.

Interview Details – I was contacted by recruiter and filled out supplemental questionnaire. I have over 15 years in operations and logistics. I waited over 2 weeks and was told I did not meet there qualifications. I then saw a job 2 weeks later for a Logistics position but was told that once you apply and are turned down for any position your resume is thrown out. They rely on too much automation in there hiring process and never make an effort.

Senior Human Resources Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Hayward, CA

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at E. & J. Gallo in July 2013.

Interview Details – Phone interview w/ recruiter followed by phone interview w/ hiring manager.

Interview Question – Recruiter asked what I was doing for money while I was unemployed -- really inappropriate. Interviews weren't difficult but was disappointed that they had me do 2 interviews, said they would follow-up within 2 weeks, and then never got back at all. I'm in HR and the lack of respect Gallo shows to their candidates is troublesome.   Answer Question
