I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Vino Volo.
Interview Details – To become an associate, they prefer someone with some college experience and preferably some wine knowledge, but it is not required. If you have a energetic, perky personality, have sales experience, and want to learn about wine, they will like you. Tests are required to be hired and promoted.
Interview Question – -- Answer Question
Very Easy Interview
I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Vino Volo in June 2010.
Interview Details – They're located in airports, so you don't just walk in.
You phone interview, kinda....
The invite you in, escort you through security, you talk, they have you observe the operation and taste a flight of wine, you apply for the background check which can take up to 3 weeks. You can work before background check is complete, but will be fired if you don't pass, and must be escorted by someone with and escort badge that works for vino volo. Once you pass, your badge is created by the badging office, you get it, you blow through security at the airport (cut in line and don't hafta remove your shoes) and you're off to work.
Interview Question – There honestly were like no questions asked that were difficult. I mean, do you have a love and appreciation of wine? Scale of 1-10, where are you? View Answer
Negotiation Details – No negotiation, they offer the job or they don't . You start off training at $7 hour, no sharing of tips. You take associates test, go down to $6 hour, share tips. Take wine associates test, go up to $8 hour plus tips. If someone disappears or moves on, you can move up to assistant manager at $10. From here, you sit in utter and complete oblivion until a store opens and you kiss butt enough to get a general manager position.
