    Innovation Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Constellation Brands.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and was contacted by an internal recruiter for a phone screen within two weeks. Easy 30 minute screen that focused on past experiences; no behavioral questions. I was brought in for a panel interview a few weeks after that. Met with 4 people with no real structure to the interviews just walked through my resume each time.

    A couple red flags emerged during the interview. First, the internal recruiter was nice enough to call me with some tips prior to going in; however, she told me they were having trouble finding people with a specific skill set (one that I had) and to really emphasize this. In the interview with the hiring manager it was clear she was not looking for that skill and seemed visibly annoyed I kept talking about it. Would have been nice if they were on the same page.

    Absolutely no follow up after the interview letting me know I was no longer being considered. Also, no offer to cover expenses (parking = $50). In my experience this tells you a lot about what type of company it is. I figured out early on I wouldn't accept an offer but still sent thank you notes, so even a form letter would have been nice.

    Director, Project Management Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Saint Helena, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Saint Helena, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 8 weeksinterviewed at Constellation Brands.

    Interview Details

    Initial contact was by HR Manager whom proved to be difficult to reach, travels frequently and does not leave and "out of office" message. Once the interview was setup, I interviewed with the VP of Engineering, and two other peer Directors reporting to the VP. The interview was a group interview and took little more than an hour. Three weeks after the interview I received a canned "No Thank You" letter. Because I received no personal contact on why or any feedback, I tried to contact the HR Manager but never was called or emailed back. Were this an entry level position I could understand the canned response and no contact, but given this was a higher level position, I expect a higher level of professionalism than this.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Constellation Brands in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    Phone interview with HR, followed by a prescreening and then an initial interview. The group was cut again at this point to a few select candidates who underwent a panel interview with the group. The entire process ended up taking about a month to complete. Overall I'd say I was relatively pleased with the process and would say its in the top quarter of interviews I've had.
