Application

I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at E. & J. Gallo.

Interview

I applied online and received a phone call to set up an interview. I then had the interview with two of the recruiters/hiring managers. After that I was invited to go on a ride along with one of their sales people. I followed him for a day to see what it was like. After that I was asked to come in to an interview with the area sales manager. I thought the interview went well and he said I should hear within two weeks. I sent a thank you email but sadly never heard from them regarding the position. Even if it was a no, its a polite and I would expect such a large and professional company to send at least a courtesy email to people interested in working for them. Pretty disappointing at how unprofessional it turned out to be.

    Never got back with me if I got the position or not, they never let me know. Looking for the people with lots of leadership experience. Interview process is not bad, difficult questions. Had to ask to rephrase a few times.

    Interview

    Recruited via LinkedIn. Went through two phone interviews and was waiting to have flights scheduled for the job shadow. Heard back from them a few weeks later and they had decided to not move me forward with the process because they had not met me when they were on campus for our career expo.

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at E. & J. Gallo (Chicago, IL) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I went through 3 rounds. One initial interview to get to know me and and seconded one to decide whether I would meet with the distract manager. The next step after I passed all three rounds was to go on a ride along with a sales associate. Finally I attended a two day conference that was a lot of fun!

    Interview

    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.
