    Executive Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Deerfield, IL
    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Beam Global Spirits & Wine in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    My initial interview was well organized and professional. I met with three people, each for an hour. Each person asked his own questions, and everyone was friendly and interesting. They all commented that the position needed to be filled ASAP. My second interview was scheduled two weeks later. I arrived 15 minutes early and proceeded to wait 90 minutes for the interviewer. 90 minutes!! An admin assistant came to me and said he was tied up in a meeting and they would call me to reschedule. That was on a Friday afternoon. The following Monday I was told that there would be no interview because I was unprofessional for leaving after 90 minutes of waiting. I was shocked and quite disappointed in the company.

    Manager of Financial Analysis Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Northbrook, IL
    Anonymous Employee in Northbrook, IL
    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 3 days - interviewed at Beam Global Spirits & Wine in October 2009.

    Interview Details

    My in-person interview with the HR manager lasted about 45 minutes. He was on time for the appointment and had obviously read my resume in advance. I thought the interview went well, but the feedback from my recruiter was not good.

    I did get the impression that there was a lot of competition for the job, and that I was one of several candidates being screened by HR. Maybe I came across too strongly for the interviewers taste, but that is the only time in approximately 20 screening interviews over the last three job searches that I didn't pass the screening interview.

    Although the company is engaged in the production and distribution of alcoholic beverages, and I get that booze is the product, it was weird walking around the office and seeing all the bottles (full) on display. Maybe that is something to which employees just grow accustomed after awhile, but for guests and first-timers, I think it's very grating and "in your face".
