    Base Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Modesto, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at E. & J. Gallo Winery (Modesto, CA).

    Interview

    I had a very good interview experience with Gallo Winery. I must say it was quite different from the typical interviews that I have been through. I had 5 different interviews scheduled on the same day at the Gallo facility in Modesto, CA and each interview was roughly about 35 to 45 minutes long. Interviewed with different key employees/managers that are part of the customer service team. The interview time was from 10 am to 1.45 pm. Come prepared with regards to the job description and how your experience and skills relate to it and a lot of scenario based questions, so have some positive and successful past experiences/stories ready! Overall it was a very great interview experience, my advise would be to get plenty of rest and come with high energy because by the time you get to the last round of interviews, you have to maintain high energy and spirit, otherwise you will come across drained out.

    Interview Questions

    • Give me an example of a time when you went through a follow up with an account or customer, how did you achieve it and why was it important?   Answer Question
    • Give me an example of time when you had to address an angry client/customer. What was the problem and how did you resolve it?   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at E. & J. Gallo Winery.

    Interview

    The process was pretty lengthy and required a lot of different casual and more formal meetings with Gallo employees. The actual interview process was at least 3 rounds, and I ended up rejecting the opportunity to move forward to the next round of interviews.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at E. & J. Gallo Winery (Modesto, CA) in November 2017.

    Interview

    Received invitation to interview about a month after filling out application. First round interview was a 30 min phone interview. A lovely experience—a few questions about my experience and the rest was an opportunity for me to ask questions. 2-3 weeks later, I received an invitation to interview at their Modesto facility. I was unable to make it in time for the facility tour/networking dinner they had the day before interviews. The interview itself was a positive experience— I had 3 different interviews with IT project managers. 2 interviews were behavioral/dealt with my experience. 1 interview was a project management case study. 2 weeks after my interview, I received and accepted an offer!

    Interview Questions

    • Project management case study   Answer Question
    • What are your favorite classes and why?   Answer Question
    • Tell me about a time when a project didn’t go as well as you’d hoped. What would you have done differently?   Answer Question

    The whole interview process was a great experience. The first round was 30 mins, it was a basic screening interview like "Why Gallo?" Then I was invited to the second round down in Modesto, CA; the interview consisted of three parts:
    1. A case based on project management like requirement gathering and modeling
    2. Behavior questions (Tell me a time when...)
    3. Skills related questions (Tell me your experience with this skill)

    Difficult Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    First they had an in-person interview with me (though some of the people in my later group had phone interviews instead) where they mostly asked about things on my resume and then questions about my personality. After the first round interview, they asked me for another interview. This time they paid for me to go to there main office and paid for a hotel room. The interview process was a whole experience. They took us out to dinner both nights and they had us take a tour of the winery as well. They also had interviews with 4 staff and a case study.

    Interview

    Panel interview with 4. Very comfortable environment and very welcoming interviewers. They were all engaged and interested. Was not intimidating and the 45 minutes felt like 10. We were in a room with no distractions and they made a great effort to know me aside from interview questions. The interview started with them having me explain my resume in detail which was a great start and allowed for many questions. The overall experience was pleasant and I received my offer in 2 days.
