Network and Computer Specialist (SME Tech II) Interview

Network and Computer Specialist (SME Tech II)
Saint Louis, MO

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Anheuser-Busch InBev.

Interview Details – I applied through BuschCareers.com. Was contacted by a member of HR stating that I was selected for a structured interview. The interview took about 1.5 hrs. Pretty basic interview where you explain situations and you did to better the situation. Then they asked questions about character and personality. The interview went well, I believed. Was told I would be contacted within the next two weeks. Was never contacted and it has been 4 months. I assume I did not get the position obviously, but I figured I would at least get a rejection notification.

EHS Manager III Interview

EHS Manager III
Williamsburg, VA

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Anheuser-Busch InBev.

Interview Details – I initially applied online for this position. I then had to take an online exam. Mostly personality questions and "what would you do in this situation" questions. I was then asked to complete a phone interview with the People Department. Next was an in person situational test that took about 3 hours. Then I was asked to come back in for a face-to-face with the HR manager and EHS manager. Next was another phone interview with the EHS Zone Manager. A few days later I was called up for an in person interview with the Sr General Manager, HR Manager and Safety Manager. After about a week I got the job offer.

Interview Question – The hardest part was the in person situational test.   Answer Question

Data Analyst Intern Interview

Data Analyst Intern
Champaign, IL

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Anheuser-Busch InBev in March 2014.

Interview Details – Heard they were hiring interns through university. Sent resume to the contact. Interview scheduled a week later. Asked more generalized questions about my knowledge of statistics and computer science. E.g. whats your favorite modeling technique and why. Look at this code and try to explain what is going on (API calls, etc.) General personality type questions. The two I interviewed with were very polite and pleasant. They were hiring for two positions and showed me a stack of what looked like 40 resumes of which I was told they were interviewing.

Interview Question – What are the constraints you need to keep in mind when using a linear regression?   Answer Question

Group Manager Interview

Group Manager

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Anheuser-Busch InBev.

Interview Details – I initially spoke with representatives from A-B at a career fair at my university. After giving them my resume, I got a call back requesting a brief on-campus interview the following day. This seemed like more of a screening process and lasted about a half hour.

Less than a week later, I received an email requesting that I take an online screening test. This exam was incredibly simple, asking a range basic math/analytic and scheduling questions, as well as some reading comprehension kinds of questions. Pretty straightforward. As best I can tell, this was just filters for basic competency.

Following this exam, I was asked to take a followup test, which asked more personality/leadership style questions. Each of these exams took about 45 minutes to complete.

About a week later, I received an email requesting that I participate in what they call the TAP. This is a "telephone-based work simulation," which was pretty bizarre. You are given a packet of information and about an hour of time to come up with a fictitious brewing schedule. Then you explain the schedule via telephone to your simulated boss, who will proceed to yell at you.

After this demoralizing phone call, you then receive an additional packet of information, and must decide how to best convince an unruly technician (via telephone) to do his job, which he will whine about.

Your final telephonic task is to conduct a meeting with a couple of operators, who bicker with one another and have many complaints. You must sort through a pile of information and decide which memos to share. This 3rd phone call concluded my TAP experience.

At this point, I was asked to come on-site for a final interview. I was not told who I would be speaking to ahead of time, though, when I arrived I was given a schedule, which was immediately disregarded. I interviewed with 3 or 4 different teams, each discussion lasting about a half hour. For the most part, the interviewers seemed particularly unhappy to be present, which was a bit disconcerting. Each team had somewhat different interviewing techniques, but there was nothing out of the ordinary.

About 2 weeks later I received a form rejection letter. The whole process took around 2 months.

Interview Question – During the telephone simulated work cases, you will have interactions with your simulated rude and childish coworkers, which was entirely bizarre.

In formal interviews, though, everything was pretty straightforward--discussing your experiences, answering behavioral questions.
