    Plant Production Leader - Quality Control Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Louisville, KY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Brown-Forman (Louisville, KY) in February 2020.

    Interview

    Overall it was a pretty bad experience, I won't look for any opportunities with this company in the future. There were quite a few interviews throughout the whole process. I had several introductory calls with the HR member at first, then an interview prep call before the process began. I had interviews on several days, some were web based and some were in person at one of their Louisville locations. I was told they were looking to move quickly and I'd hear back within the next week, never heard from them again, even after emailing the HR contact for an update. I spent hours of my time to go through this process, drove 99 miles each way to the interview location (not reimbursed for gas), just for them to not have the decency to let me know in person that I was not selected. I wouldn't want to work for a company that treats its team members this way.

    The interview was online and lasted about one hour. They asked me pretty basic questions and talked about my resume a good bit as well. I would recommend preparing for any sort of question as well as knowing why you want to work there.

    Warehouse Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Brown-Forman (Louisville, KY) in June 2018.

    Interview

    Overall Great experience. Interview process was above my expectation. About a month from application to offer. Starts with an online application submission, then an email survey to answer a few questions - followed by a phone screen , then a phone interview with the hiring manager. If you are competitive , then you will be invited to the Corporate campus for an interview. Overall the experience was very positive. Lots of longevity and diverse workforce with employees having a huge wealth of knowledge. The culture is awesome - right fit for me! Very collaborative and inclusive. The team was very professional, welcoming and most importantly intelligent. Everyone knows what they are doing. Company has a lot of history and hold value to their culture. Overall it was a great interview experience. I think other Fortune 500 companies need to benchmark Brown Forman's talent acquisition best practices because they are definitely good at that and attract only the best candidates.
