Global Management Trainee Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cambridge, MA

Positive Experience

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Anheuser-Busch (Cambridge, MA) in September 2017.

Interview

After all of the info sessions and booths on campus, there was an easy online application. Then I received an email to fill out an online logic and reasoning test and personality fit test. The test took maybe 30 min and was quite enjoyable. The next round was a 30 min case study on campus. I can't speak to any further steps.

Overall it was a good experience. There was lots of engagement and the process was clear from the beginning when all the rounds and interviews would be. It was a relatively fast process for all of the steps and interviews involved.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Anheuser-Busch.

    Interview

    Met some current GMTs on campus. They were very friendly and helpful throughout the process. They definitely made the GMT program feel like the perfect entry-level position. However, the on-site Business Simulation was very negative and unsettling for me. You're placed in a game simulation with talented people, but after each round, the AB interviewers ask you uncomfortable questions in front of everybody like which teammate you would fire and who you would deny a bonus to. If you give a cordial answer, they tell you "you didn't answer my question" while scoffing and writing notes. They seemed like they were trying hard to be a cutthroat and competitive company, but ended up looking very mean. I saw someone crying after the simulation in the bathroom.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Anheuser-Busch (Berkeley, CA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Applied for the Global Management Trainee summer internship. After applying through my school's job search platform, I was sent an email with a link for a behavioral test. After passing that, I was sent a link to a logical test that must be taken within a few days of the first test. When I passed the second test I was invited for an interview. It was a case study that you have 30 minutes to go over the material, and then you must present your answer to an interviewer. After I passed the case study I was invited for a regular interview the next day. About a week after the second interview, I was notified that I was not selected to continue in the hiring process

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Anheuser-Busch (New York, NY).

    Interview

    After you submit your resume, you are invited to take an online "culture fit" test, you have to take an online logical reasoning test. If you do well on both of those, then they look at your resume and decide to interview you. First interview is a 45 minute business case. If you do well, you're invited to the behavioural the next day. Next round is flying to Missouri for business simulation. And then an interview with a panel.

    Interview

    So I feel obligated to write this because Glassdoor helped me so much. This is for on campus recruiting for the GMT Internship.

    Network: Network with your alumni it helps. We had a tailgate

    Online Test: You take two online tests. 1 culture test & 1 logic test. They aren't that bad. If you can't pass them you wouldn't get past the rest of the process, so just take them. The logic test will get increasingly harder. Therefore, if it is getting harder then you are doing well.

    Case Interview: You are gonna do really bad. No one says wow that went great. You won't have enough time to do the case. No one does. Do the case as best you can then when they ask questions just speak confidently and back up your answers. I didn't even want to present mine because I thought it was so bad, but I mad it to the next round cause I defended everything I did.

    Behavioral Interview: Just be yourself. There are no tricky questions. Just a culture fit test.

    Panel: They interview 7 students at once and there were 4 Interviewers. I don't know what they looked for, but always be ready to speak and go off other peoples answer. One of the girls in my group cried after, another had giant pit stains, and another wouldn't talk. Therefore, my biggest advice is if you stay calm and articulate yourself well then you are going to crush everyone. I told my friends that after mine and all three of us got offers. If you answer all the questions in your head even if they get asked to other people that helps. Know the company culture and whats going one.

    Overall, I didn't think it was that hard. If you're intelligent and fit the company culture you will probably get it.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Anheuser-Busch (Ann Arbor, MI) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Very frustrating interview process. I took a series of tests: 2 personality, chart reading, reading comprehension, and function processes. I received emails saying "Congratulations, you passed the tests. Look forward to emails on the next steps". Then 3 weeks later, I receive an email that they will be moving forward with other candidates. This made little sense to me, as I was given no more tests and passed all the tests they provided me with. In my opinion the process could be much more transparent and streamlined.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Anheuser-Busch (New York, NY) in October 2015.

    Interview

    I was referred to this position by a coworker (previously interned for AB). The first two rounds were online logic tests. They were reminiscent of SAT math questions. There was also a culture fit assessment. I was familiar with this because I had taken it for another position at ABI. Next, I was invited to do a phone business case interview. I was given a bunch of information online and had 30 minutes to make a decision about what seasonal beers to run based on the info. There isn't enough time to truly make a good informed decision so make sure you go as quickly as possible and gave reasons to backup your choices. They aren't looking for the optimal answer, just the logic behind what you decide to do and that you're using a large amount of the info presented. Next I had a Skype interview that was all behavioral questions. I thought it went well but was not invited to the next round. I believe my answers may have been too technical and they are looking for a more business minded than engineering minded person.

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Anheuser-Busch.

    Interview

    The first interview was an hour long case study. 30 min to review the material, 30 min to present and answer questions. Case study tested marketing, sales, and supply chain skills.

    Second interview was behavioral. Questions such as what is your favorite non-AB brand? Why is your favorite brand successful? What is your favorite marketing campaign and why? Name a time when you failed?

    Third interview was in St. Louis. First half of the day included a brewery tour and Q&A session with current GMTs. Second half was a 2.5 hour business simulation game. All candidates were split into teams of 5 and given a hypothetical company and targets for each month. Team has to work together to reach targets.

    Final round interview was in St. Louis. Panel interview with company executives. Mainly looking for how you interact with fellow candidates and presenting yourself to senior management.
