I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at E. & J. Gallo.

Interview Details – I was hired through an outside recruiter, so I had one offsite interview then a panel interview onsite. If you apply through the website, you only get a call if they are interested in you and there can be multiple steps (phone interview, then a day of interviews, then a final interview). The whole thing can take a long time if there are multiple candidates.

Interview Question – What does your current boss do in his/her job?   Answer Question

Sales Representative Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Seattle, WA

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at E. & J. Gallo in February 2014.

Interview Details – Initially was contacted by email to meet for coffee nearby my campus. After that I received a call for a formal interview (it was a 2 on 1 interview). That went really well, so I was asked to come back for a second face-to-face interview with two different Gallo higher level managers. Both interviews were fairly smooth. They asked the general questions such as: why are you interested in sales? Why Gallo specifically? What motivates you? Why do you think you would do well in this industry? etc. The next step was a job shadow of a sales representative. I thought it went great. But after this step, I received a letter in the mail saying "thanks, but we went with someone else." It was a great experience, not sure what went wrong though.

Interview Question – There were no real difficult questions. One that had me fumble for an answer a little though was: "tell us about a time where you struggled, and had to overcome the adversity or obstacles you faced." (or something of that nature). Those questions are hard, because you have to make a negative sound positive.   Answer Question

Production Engineering Intern Interview

Anonymous Employee
Modesto, CA

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at E. & J. Gallo in March 2013.

Interview Details – Was recruited by a professor who is affiliated with the company. Soon after, HR from E&J Gallo contacted me to apply to a list of positions, production engineering intern being one on the list. Within a day I received an invitation to attend an interview conference at headquarters in Modesto Ca. Two weeks later I attended the interview conference. I went with a group of 9 other students. E&J Gallo sent a bus to our campus to pick us up and transport us to their location. The conference included a breakfast, three 1 hour interviews (almost back to back), lunch at a very lovely local restaurant, followed by a plant and bottling tour. The interviewing process was very relaxed and the E&J representatives were extremely welcoming and friendly. After the conclusion of the day, we were told we would hear back within 2-3 weeks. I heard back within a few days, and received an offer within one weeks time.

Interview Question – The usual behavioral based questions regarding group work, leadership, and how you have handled opposition or solved/mediated a conflict.   Answer Question

I applied in-person and interviewed at E. & J. Gallo.

Interview Details – I interviewed at the company booth when they visited my campus. It was only one interview, and I was interviewed by my current boss. The questions were all philosophical which was a bit intimidating, but it helped me make a good connection with him, which is probably why I was offered a position.

Interview Question – What is the source of your motivation (really open ended question)   Answer Question
