    Interview

    I first met a recruiter at my college career fair. We talked for a while, and after the career fair I followed up with an email expressing my interest in the position. We talked on the phone and scheduled the first interview with her. It went well, and I go invited to go on a ride a long with a current sales representative. After, I had another interview with the general sales manager.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at E. & J. Gallo in September 2014.

    Interview

    My experience with the interview process was awesome! I had interaction on the HR side with Allison, Danielle and Emily. Danielle conducted my initial screening interview. She was very professional and informative about the position and the company. She exuded the company's core values right from the beginning which helped me to ascertain what a great company I was interviewing with. My conversations with Emily and Allison were not as extensive but the same qualities and passion came through. In my career this is a rarity to find this consistency across the board.
