    Retail Sales Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Pabst in March 2015.


    The initial interview with the hiring manager was very positive and felt more like an informal discussion than an interview. Afterwards he said he would recommend me to move through to the next round of interviews, a process that would take a couple weeks to plan and schedule. Fast forward 2.5 months later...after numerous follow up emails on my behalf, and return emails from the Mgr stating reasons/excuses such as "holding patterns and other issues taking precedence over the market area" I sent yet another email inquiring about the status of the position and was informed Pabst had hired someone else that same week. The frustrating part of everything wasn't not being hired. If another candidate was a better fit or had greater experience than me, I'll accept that. What I don’t appreciate is the fact I was never really given an honest shot at the role in the 1st place. If you say you "like someone" and you're going to move them forward, do it. Don't blow smoke and get people's hopes up. Also, Pabst should really try to reach out to the candidates who weren't hired to inform them they weren't, before the candidate has to call and get the news themselves. Especially after they've been goose chasing the position for 2.5 months.

The Pabst Brewing Company is a 19th-century brewer retooled for the 21st century. The company, founded in Milwaukee in 1844, today is something of a "virtual" brewer. Pabst owns no breweries, but instead, it contracts with MillerCoors to actually manufacture its beers, while Pabst retains the brand ownership of and does the marketing for its stable of blue-collar brands (including Pabst Blue Ribbon, Blatz, Pearl, Lone Star, Old Milwaukee, Old Style, Schlitz, and Colt 45). Pabst Brewing was owned by the Kalmanovitz Charitable Foundation until June 2010.
