    Pros

    The employees are smart, the yearly review process is taken seriously, and interviews are well thought out.

    Cons

    The politics can be bad, sometimes people are inappropriately chosen for roles, the company keeps being restructured, and excellent employees are laid off.

    Advice to Management

    Before people are given senior management roles, 360 reviews should be mandatory and they should be reviewed as part of the decision making process.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Diageo (Boca Raton, FL) in August 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was very organized. For me, It began with a phone interview that outlined the job expectations and more about the company. The first time, it was more about describing what you'd be getting into (I had an employee who sent them a reference letter but I think there are usually two phone interviews). The next interview (face to face) was very professionally friendly, like a meet and greet. They asked questions that were specific to the job and it was like open conversation format. I had been used to interviewing as more of a question and answer process, but this was better and I regret not speaking more about myself and leading the conversation (where it's usually the other way around). Depending on the position, I had 6 people interviewing me, and I was SO nervous but they made me feel really good about myself and comfortable. Even though I didn't get the job, I have no hostility towards them or the company(s) because of how real and nice everyone was. Everything happens for a reason!

    Interview Questions

    • The usual "Tell us about yourself" "Why would you be a good fit for this position" "What motivates you to overcome challenges" A lot of it was just them describing certain things you'd have to do on the job and then following up with "So, how do you feel about that" To prepare, I suggest reading the job's duties and making sure you have something to say about each point how you can accomplish or fulfill it.   Answer Question
