I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Diageo (Boca Raton, FL) in August 2015.
The interview process was very organized. For me, It began with a phone interview that outlined the job expectations and more about the company. The first time, it was more about describing what you'd be getting into (I had an employee who sent them a reference letter but I think there are usually two phone interviews). The next interview (face to face) was very professionally friendly, like a meet and greet. They asked questions that were specific to the job and it was like open conversation format. I had been used to interviewing as more of a question and answer process, but this was better and I regret not speaking more about myself and leading the conversation (where it's usually the other way around). Depending on the position, I had 6 people interviewing me, and I was SO nervous but they made me feel really good about myself and comfortable. Even though I didn't get the job, I have no hostility towards them or the company(s) because of how real and nice everyone was. Everything happens for a reason!
- The usual "Tell us about yourself" "Why would you be a good fit for this position" "What motivates you to overcome challenges" A lot of it was just them describing certain things you'd have to do on the job and then following up with "So, how do you feel about that" To prepare, I suggest reading the job's duties and making sure you have something to say about each point how you can accomplish or fulfill it.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Diageo in July 2015.
Diageo uses Hireview in my opinion it just weeds out the older blue collar workers. The Questions didn't even pertain to the job. It is a very cold process you never talk to anyone until you sit in front of a camera and answer questions to a computer not even a facetime.

I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Diageo.
Fast paced, direct interview style. Unfortunately, the company flew several students graduating later out to fill a position with immediate openings. They seemed surprised we couldn't start. After being forced to decline the offer was spent a lot of time looming around th

I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Diageo.
Was recruited through university info session. After being contacted, I received an invitation for a "virtual interview" where I recorded answers to behavioral questions. Following the virtual interview were 3 assessments meant to test skills and personality. Finally I was invited for an on-site visit which consisted of 4 separate interviews. They included: One 1:1 presentation--I was assigned a business case and given time to present a presentation; One 1:1 behavioral interview; One "mock" meeting--I was given role play instructions and asked to play out a scenario; One group project--we were assigned to groups of 6-7 and given time to solve a business case and present findings.

I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Diageo (East Lansing, MI) in January 2015.
First round interview with two current employees as a preliminary screening of a candidate. Interview only lasted about 30 minutes asking very general questions about resume and work experience. Was not a direct interview, but very vague and had no direction. Then is a second round interview at facility

I applied online. I interviewed at Diageo.
Video interview - very friendly, very encouraging process. Behavioral questions well suited to a STAR approach. It may take some time to get used to talking to your computer, so practice and prepare before hand.

I applied through other source. The process took 8+ months. I interviewed at Diageo.
Sad; long and painful, with little feedback. Very poor professional management of the process; letting you know who is competing for the position and setting one off against the other; very poor.
- Have you ever been fired? Answer Question
There was none; here is the salary; take it or leave it.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Diageo (Norwalk, CT) in December 2014.
Was reached out by HR on LinkedIn. The overall process included one phone screen by HR, one round HireVue video interview and one super day. HireVue interview included 10 questions, mostly behavior based. Make sure your video camera and lighting are good, wear suit. Super day was held in company HQ in CT, met the team during breakfast and lunch time, and was assigned one business case presentation and three in person interviews. Questions were mostly behavior based and going over resume. Timeline: HireVue was followed 2 weeks after initial contact, then super day after another 2 weeks. Position was offered two days after super day.
- Tell me about yourself. Answer Question
Overall package was more than I expected. However I was able to negotiate a little sign on bonus due to relocation.
- Accepted Offer
Assesment center with behavioural questions, role playing. Nothing really unexpected. My interviewer was very great to talk to, standard questions (strengths, tell me about a time...). Make sure to prepare some answers for behavioral situations regarding leadership or how you handle a difficult situation when you are leading a team
