    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at E. & J. Gallo.

    Interview Details

    When I first walked in to the interview two men were waiting for me. They asked me to tell me about myself and explain my resume. Afterwards, they asked me a few behavioral questions. They were not very outgoing or friendly and did not seem like they liked their job at Gallo.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at E. & J. Gallo.

    Interview Details

    Had 4 interviews: first a phone interview with an internal recruiter, second a phone interview with the hiring manager, third a video conference with the hiring manager, HR manager, and project manager, and finally, a video conference where I was asked to give a presentation.

    Everyone was extremely friendly and the questions were typical interview questions.

    Interview Questions
    • The question that made me pause was 'Why should they hire me for the position as opposed to other candidates with similar qualifications? What makes me special?'
      It's tough to make yourself stand out and not sound like you're bringing other candidates down in the process.

    Business Management Development Program Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at E. & J. Gallo.

    Interview Details

    First round, on-campus interview: Very straightforward interview process. The interviews had actually taken the time to review my resume beforehand and asked me questions directly based off of it. I was impressed with how prepared THEY were. There were no trick questions - all behavioral, all straightforward, and all relevant to the position.

    I do not yet know if I made it to the second round, but I do know that I had a very pleasant interview experience.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Modesto, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Modesto, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at E. & J. Gallo in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied for the position. Within days, I received an automated email saying they'll be pursuing other candidates. Approximately two weeks later, I received another email asking me to reapply since the job description and requirements had changed. So, I reapplied. Three days later, I received an email asking for writing samples. I sent those and the next day I received another automated email saying they were pursuing other candidates. I was a bit confused because the turnaround time from when I submitted my writing samples to when I received the rejection email was very tight. I called the HR person who originally asked for writing samples, just to get clarification in case there was a glitch in the system. Turns out, I was overqualified for the position and they were looking for someone much more junior. One would think I would be irritated but the internal recruiter was SO NICE and helpful. I respect their decision and I'm glad they didn't waste my time only to give me an offer with a salary lower than I desired. She was honestly the nicest recruiter I have ever encountered. My goal is to move back to Modesto and work for Gallo. So I will continue to check their job openings in hope of seeing something that is a better fit...hopefully, in the near future!
