I have been working at Constellation Brands full-time (more than 3 years)Pros
The company's reputation as a young, casual, and fun place to work along with the recent Corona acquisition has led to CBrands hiring some incredibly intelligent and hard working talent in the past several years.
In-office gym, product allowance, notoriously fun Christmas party and other events, bars in the offices, new focus to furthering training of current employees (jobs skills and other certifications such as WSET). Generally promotes from within.Cons
A competitive atmosphere full of competitive people tends to lead to immense competition between employees. Could be considered good or bad depending on who you are.
Others include relatively high turnover, constant restructuring, and some rumor mongering. Hours can be rough depending on group (for some, 50-60 while other are out at 40)Advice to ManagementAdvice
keep up the momentum and put more focus on developing a better team to predict market trends. Our NPD sometimes feels 2 steps behind the competition.RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO
Getting an Interview
Getting an Interview
- Application Details
I applied online. The process took 4 weeks – interviewed at Constellation Brands.Interview Details
Applied online and was contacted by an internal recruiter for a phone screen within two weeks. Easy 30 minute screen that focused on past experiences; no behavioral questions. I was brought in for a panel interview a few weeks after that. Met with 4 people with no real structure to the interviews just walked through my resume each time.
A couple red flags emerged during the interview. First, the internal recruiter was nice enough to call me with some tips prior to going in; however, she told me they were having trouble finding people with a specific skill set (one that I had) and to really emphasize this. In the interview with the hiring manager it was clear she was not looking for that skill and seemed visibly annoyed I kept talking about it. Would have been nice if they were on the same page.
Absolutely no follow up after the interview letting me know I was no longer being considered. Also, no offer to cover expenses (parking = $50). In my experience this tells you a lot about what type of company it is. I figured out early on I wouldn't accept an offer but still sent thank you notes, so even a form letter would have been nice.Interview Questions
