    Event Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Countryside, IL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Cooper’s Hawk Winery & Restaurants (Countryside, IL) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Asked maybe 3 questions about me and then left it open for me to ask questions. Not sure how they thought they'd get to know me from that, but then said they'd decide who moves forward to the 2nd round interviews in a few days. Received an email that I was not chosen to move forward even though I have all the experience, they don't know that though because they decided not to take the time to learn that. I was referred by the CEO and still was not asked for a second interview. Management needs to ask more questions if they think they can find the right person for the job over the phone. Will no longer be giving them my business.

    I had two Interviews on the same day-1 minute apart from each other. They asked me basic behavioral Interview questions-a lot about teamwork and times when you went out of your way for a guest. They asked about my availability and my work ethic. The second interview was with the General Manager and he asked about 4 questions and then I was hired on the spot.

    Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Cooper’s Hawk Winery & Restaurants (Countryside, IL) in October 2016.

    Interview

    They had a few phone screenings which sounded as if they went very well. I was assured that I was the type of person they were looking for. I should have known something was 'off' when the recruiter mentioned 'type' multiple times. Once on site I noticed a lack of minorities throughout the office (which was a dump) and during the interview process many of the questions centered around ethic based questions. I would not recommend Cooper's Hawk to open minded and diverse job seekers.

    Interview Questions

    • The type of environment you like working in. The type of people you prefer to work with. Your management style. How do you motivate people, etc.   1 Answer

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Cooper’s Hawk Winery & Restaurants (Coconut Creek, FL) in September 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and took a personality exam that weeds out the undesirables. The interview process took about a week. met with the first manager and asked pretty run of the mill questions but be aware that some questions will make you think. You should have a resume and a list of references prepared in case anyone asks. I was confident and smiled and maintained eye contact. I was then invited to do a second round interview with the General Manager. We had to learn as much as we could about the Wine Club and menu. He asked questions specific about the company. Do your research! Cannot stress this enough. We spoke for about 45 minutes about experience and he asked the same questions that the other manager asked me. Be consistent with your answers. We spoke about what is basically required of me at Cooper's Hawk and what I need to do going forward. I was then told the minimum wage and then invited to be apart of the team.

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Cooper’s Hawk Winery & Restaurants.

    Interview

    You will be interviewed by up to 3 managers. Be prepared to wait up to half an hour to be seen by the first manager. The first managers will be nice and ask you basic questions but the GM (last interview) will seem cold and intimidating. That's just his thing to see how nervous you are.
