    I have been working at Foster's Americas

    Pros

    Great benefits, family work atmosphere, and the company has an eye for the future by being pre-emptive in addressing the global issues of the company. The company hires only the most qualified individuals with detail on the experience and knowledge of potential candidates. The company is also heavily involved in providing "green" technology, establishing the largest solar energy system by a winery in the United States.

    Cons

    At the present time, it is a change in consumer habits that are in many ways is affecting the industry as a whole. Business suffers some, but it is a temporary setback.

    Also, because of the fact that Foster's is run out of Australia, you have to wonder if sometimes U.S. operations take back seat to some important issues. Despite economic problems in the country, however, FWEA is actively addressing most issues with positive action.

    Anonymous Employee in Napa, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 months - interviewed at Foster's Americas in September 2010.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed over the phone with in house (FutureStep Korn Ferry) recruiter and then on site with 2 HR Directors and VP HR. Enjoyed the interview and the people I spoke with about the open roles.

    Sent follow up letter to all the same day. Followed up with the VP, HR Director and Recruiter by phone and email. NO RESPONSE from the company. Not even a automated "No Thanks" letter.

    Looks like they fired the VPHR and HR Directors. I spoke with a retained search reruiter that said he had spoke with other candidates that were interviewed and received no follow or response.
