Management Development Program Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Austin, TX

I applied through college or university and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at E. & J. Gallo in March 2013.

Interview Details – All behavioral interview questions. Very laid back and conversational. They want to get to know you... be positive and talkative. They want you to have extra cirricular activities. There is a first round, second round, then a recruiting conference. Mine was in Sonoma, CA. It was really fun you get to meet a lot of people in the Gallo company and network.

Interview Question – Not anything out of the ordinary   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – I'm in the process of deciding whether I want to accept or not

Human Resources Coordinator Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Modesto, CA

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 months - interviewed at E. & J. Gallo.

Interview Details – HR coordinator contacted me, she had gotten my resume from my HR Professor. I completed the phone interview and was told that she would call me back to set up my appointment time for a plant tour and a meet and greet with some of the other HR staff. HR coordinator didn't follow through multiple times. Over a two month period we played phone tag back and forth. Each phone conversation I had with her ended with "I will call you tomorrow." She never called back each time like she said and when I would leave messages she never answered me back. I finally was able to get into contact with somebody higher up in the HR dept that I know personally and she told the hr coordinator to call me back. I really wanted this job but was let down with this particular HR coordinator's lack of follow through and organization, it put a bad taste in my mouth after that and I knew this was not the job for me.

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 days - interviewed at E. & J. Gallo in February 2013.

Interview Details – I met 2 recruiters at an engineering career fair at my university. After speaking with them about the positions open, the company location, and the job description, I was invited to an interview the next day on campus. I went to the interview and the same two recruiters interviewed me. They were both in their early thirties and very friendly. The interview felt relaxed. It was a great experience. They covered their questions that they ask everyone, then asked resume specific questions.

Interview Question – There weren't any difficult questions. The classic behavioral questions.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There was no negotiation since it is an internship

Interview Question – If you know yourself and you have been a leader in organizations then you will do great. Just think of different scenarios that you have been in. I would suggest doing practice interviews if you have not really interviewed with a company.   Answer Question

Sales Representative Interview

Sales Representative

I applied through college or university - interviewed at E. & J. Gallo in February 2013.

Interview Details – Met recruiters at Career Fair, & was invited for an interview which went very well. Both recruiters were personable & it was a simple meeting where they asked about my resume, described the job, etc. I was then asked to come for a second interview and it was borderline unprofessional and left me feeling very discouraged about the job. This was a complete shock as all of my encounters with this company and its employees have been nothing but positive. Most of the questions were not related to the job or the company but rather my change in major from healthcare to business. Additionally, I was hurried out the door to due lack of time and was unable to ask the recruiter any questions.

Interview Question – What other companies are you currently interviewing with and why are those companies not related to this industry?   Answer Question
