Eau Claire, WI

I applied through other source and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Wirtz Beverage Illinois.

Interview Details – I found out about the job through a professional contact, submitted a resume, and got a call within the week to set up an interview. I had an interview with two area managers, and the regional director. Everything went well. I was called back for a second interview 2.5 hours away. I went, had my interview, partly role play. I was congratulated on the job well done and they told me that they would call within the week. I then expressed to them how I would really appreciate a call back regardless of the decision. They agreed that that would happen. After 8 days, I called them and asked what was up; they replied that they were working on a new position, but to stay in contact. That was almost two months ago.

Interview Question – In the second interview, they showed a sales sheet, and after a few minutes, asked em to role play with them, and to sell them a product.   View Answer
