    Senior Financial Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Brown-Forman (Louisville, KY) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Emailed questionnaire, then a phone call with the HR Hiring Manager, then a 2-hour onsite interview with two separate teams with whom I would be working. My application-to-offer process took longer, as it spread over Thanksgiving and XMAS holidays, but I've heard that it's rare for an applicant to experience a process less than one month.

    Interview Questions

    • All Behavioral-Based interview questions. Tell me about a time when.... Depending on the hiring manager, you may receive a "cheat sheet" as to how to use the STAR method to respond to these questions. Some examples asked of me were "Talk about a time you directly improved the efficiencies of your workplace or department"   Answer Question

    Human Resources Interview

    Average Interview

    Interview

    It started with an email from recruiting asking basic questions such as salary expectations and willingness to travel to insure expectations were leveled. Then a "Q&A" was sent via email asking questions mainly elaborating on specific skills the position would require and level of relevant experience with each. That led to an invitation to a panel of interviews with 6 members of the company including direct manager and next level manager, peers and leaders from different organizations. Very long day of interviews, but efficient, cordial, professional and everyone was very pleasant.

    Interview Questions

    Interview

    The interview was a quick and easy process - you had to film yourself answering typical behavioral questions. Nothing unexpected, though it was strange that it was not with a person.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Brown-Forman (Louisville, KY) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Video interview via online web portal that asks you to record a set of five simple questions. Not a big deal. I don't really know how this helps managers pick employees. I really believe its up to connections in the workplace for really securing an internship (unless of course if you have either a really good video or a really bad one).

    Contact someone in HR about the summer internship program and they will send you the first step of the application, which is to send in your resume and cover letter If they're interested, they will contact you for a video interview through a link.
