I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at BevMo.

Interview Details – filled out application, they called back a week later for an interview, I went to interview and meet with store manager and was asked my retail experience and they asked my availability and then it took over two weeks to get hired in the store as this was the longest process but other than that some experience helps and if they like you in the interview you have a good chance of getting hired.

Interview Question – Easy interview with no curve balls, such question as what is your favorite drink   View Answer

Negotiation Details – not much negotiation, as they say this is all we can offer and do you accept

I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at BevMo.

Interview Details – Online Application and resume upload. Went to the flagship store to be interviewed, and was essentially hired on the spot without any retail experience. Hiring Manager was very professional, but seemed very busy and unable to spend a lot of time interviewing. Was hired along with one other person, and began training almost immediately.

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at BevMo in August 2010.

Interview Details – Was contacted via phone notifying me of in-store interview. Arrived and interview was held in breakroom. Employer had application papers that I had filled out online on hand. Went over previous employer experience and details. If you have any experience in the industry, it definitely stands out as it did in my case. Mentioned flexibility which I also strongly believed helped me in the hiring process.
