    Interview

    Two phone screens and in-person super day. Very fair and engaging questions with a good mix of behavioral/fit questions and "case-like" exercises. All interviewees were extremely passionate about the company and sincerely interested in getting to know me!

    Outside Sales Representative Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at E. & J. Gallo Winery (San Francisco, CA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Interview process was great. A lot of the questions relate to your leadership and willingness to go above and beyond. Less about the company and more about the people. Depending on the time of year the process will be lengthier. Most recruits are made right out of college.

    Interview Questions

    • What would your teammates say is your weakness or area of opportunity and why?   Answer Question

    Assistant Marketing Manager Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at E. & J. Gallo Winery (Modesto, CA) in August 2012.

    Interview

    The interview process began with a phone screen with the director of talent acquisition and HR manager. They started off by having me walk them through my resume. After that, they asked a few basic interview questions. It lasted about 30 minutes. After the interview, I sent out thank you letters and got an immediate response back from one of the interviewers saying that they'd be in touch soon. A week later, I got an automated response saying that there were better candidates for the position. They could have at least sent me an email themselves instead of having an automated generic email sent to me. It was a little insulting that they left it so impersonal so now I am completely fine that I didn't get the position.

    Associate Brand Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at E. & J. Gallo Winery (Modesto, CA) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Gallo's interview process is by far one of the best I've experienced in recruiting for CPG companies. It's easy to coordinate with them, and they are quick to let you know whether or not you are advancing to the next round. What I appreciated most is that everyone I interviewed with was genuine, personable, and engaged in the conversation. They do a great job of making you feel comfortable and answering any questions you have about the company or industry.

    Interview Questions

    • I had just completed a summer internship in a similar role, so most of the questions revolved around my experience in that internship and the kinds of projects I was tasked with, what I learned, etc. Other questions were about successful leadership, a time I felt stuck in a project, and a mild marketing case question.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at E. & J. Gallo Winery in October 2017.

    Interview

    I received an email to set up a phone screen for the ABM position. The Recruiter LinkedIn requested me, and I felt that this was a good sign. Ten minutes prior to the call the Recruiter asked to reschedule for the next day. I was not available the next day but I suggested another day. I did not hear back so I followed up. Again, I did not hear back so I followed up again. I still have not heard back but have seen the Recruiter posting things on LinkedIn. I would not want to proceed with this company as they are clearly unprofessional and do not value peoples time.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at E. & J. Gallo Winery (Modesto, CA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    I had a wine chat with someone in Marketing who then recommended me to interview. After about 3 rounds of phone interviews, I was invited out to Modesto for the final round. The final round was back to back slots of 30 minutes to an hour for 2-3 hours. Most interviews were behavioral, but there was one case.

    Associate Marketing Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at E. & J. Gallo Winery (Modesto, CA).

    Interview

    Recruited through a digital agency outside of California - completed a series of phone interviews and then invited to Gallo. Very good experience with the HR Team, however, the interviewing process was not a positive experience at all. It seemed like each interviewer had to do personality assessment versus talking to you about your core competencies, technical expertise or even your resume. Panel interview was geared more on gathering corporate processes and operations from your current company. The closing interview with the Sr. Marketing Manager was a bit scary too when he pulled the shades down and shut the door to his office and never reviewed my resume. The interview was made to make the candidate feel very uncomfortable - very unprofessional environment.

    Interview

    They are definitely all about fit! They take notes the whole interview to see if you possess the qualities on their check off their list. Those that checked the most boxes were invited back. Definitely brush up on your interview questions and make sure you use the STAR strategy!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at E. & J. Gallo Winery in August 2018.

    Interview

    Long process that has three steps. There is a first round interview that is all behavioral with typical behavioral questions with the main recruiter. If you get a second round interview it is with a more higher up person in the company. This interview lasts only 15 minutes. Again, all behavioral.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about a time when you were in an uncomfortable situation. How did you resolve the problem? Tell me about a time when you worked on a team and there was conflict? Tell me about a time when you sold something?   Answer Question
