Area Manager Interview (Positive Experience)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Pabst.
Interview Details – It was a very quick turnaround. They used an executive search. The first interview was with Region Director and General Manager, second interview with VP of Sales, had to fly to his location. Had a phone interview with HR and did an online personality assessment. The whole process took under 30 days and was a great experience from beginning to end.

Logistics Analyst Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Pabst in April 2012.
Interview Details – The HR VP contacted me after a week I submitted my application. The following day I had an interview with the VP of Operations by phone, two weeks later had the face to face interview with the hiring manager. Three weeks after the interview they offer the job. The timeline is a little bit longer, but since the VP's are in California, the hiring managers have to wait for them.

Legal Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Pabst in November 2011.
Interview Details – I had series of emails with internal recruiter after applying online several days before. Recruiter was very helpful in explaining the culture specific to that office location, said it was "not for everyone" but they are also looking for people excited about the Brand. Sheduled to meet with hiring Mgr next day, I had to complete paperwork and submit prior to the interview. In-person went really well (seemed like more of a conversation/discussion due to comfort level and my experience), was asked to keep them posted of my job search and he wanted me to meet with/speak to others. Followed up with Recruiter week later via email to which I received a short, form response saying I was not moving forward in the process.
