    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Beam Suntory in May 2018.

    Interview

    The interview process was pretty standard. There was a phone screening with HR. There was a one-on-one Interview with the hiring manager and a final larger interview with the brand team. Overall, the process was very expedient.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions were actually very fun. The questions were marketing case questions as well as questions about how you stay up to date on marketing trends in the industry and what brand in the portfolio would you market differently and why?   1 Answer

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Beam Suntory.

    Interview

    Some standard questions, a lot of digging into resume. Best served answering with the examples. Bottom line, if you know what you are talking about you will do fine. If you're trying to fake it until you make it they will find out.

    Senior Manager Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Beam Suntory (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Takes longer than expected from call to interview to offer. Things seem to move slow on the internal side (waiting to get manager approval, etc.). I could tell (after a year of working there), that they don't really pay too much attention in the interview. They rely heavily on the PI exercise at the individual level, but not how that person will integrate into the culture or established team dynamic.

    Supplier Quality Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Beam Suntory (Clermont, KY) in November 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was standard with a recruiter phone screen which covered areas that were key points to the positions, in my case, auditing experience. Then another phone screen with the hiring manager which dived into more detail about elements on the resume and an overview of the position and the company. Finally, an on-site interview with a panel with various individuals that were stakeholders to the position and department. The interviews were 1:1 about an hour each in length with lunch provided. Throughout the entire process, the people were professional, respectful and accommodating.

    Reasons for Declining

    Unfortunately, had to decline the offer due to personal reasons but aside from that, would have jumped on the chance to work for such a good group of people and what seemingly seems like an exciting fast paced company.

    The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Beam Suntory.

    Interview

    Phone Interview with HR followed by in person interview with Hiring Manager and Regional Sales Manager. Interview went well however neither took notes during. The interview felt rushed.
