    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at E. & J. Gallo Winery (Modesto, CA) in December 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process took place over about 24 hours. They put us up in a hotel overnight. We arrived midday/afternoon and we're given a tour of the winery and surrounding facilities. Afterwards we got bused back to the hotel and get ready for dinner. Dinner was at a restaurant a few blocks away. We met some of the staff and got to mingle and introduce ourselves. All expenses (dinner, parking, hotel) were comped. The interviews were early the next morning. They consisted of three parts: behavioral, computer science fundamentals, and breadth of knowledge. All in all it was a great interview process. Everyone was extremely nice and the accommodations were generous.

    Interview Questions

    • Behavioral: Describe a time you improved your workplace (efficiency).
      CS Fundamentals: Write a class, delete a node from a linked list, etc.
      Breadth of knowledge: General questions ranging from web/mobile development to security to networking such as, describe hybrid vs native apps, intranet vs extranet. Then follow-ups about personal experience using that technology/frameworks (if any).   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at E. & J. Gallo Winery.

    Interview

    Phone screening with the HR manager. Then I had 5 in person interviews all in one day at one of their winery locations. Each interview took about 45 minutes. The phone screening focused on if you met the minimum requirements and if you were a good fit for the company. They did ask a few behavioral questions in the phone screening but mostly about my experience. The interviews focused on my experience and how it applies to the job. They asked a lot about my regulatory work and experience in implementing environmental policies. They also asked some behavioral questions. You have interviews with the hiring manager, departments you will work with the most, and an HR representative.

    Analytics Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at E. & J. Gallo Winery in November 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and got a referral from a friend. I had a phone screen with an HR rep and an interview with the hiring manager.

    The HR phone screening and 1:1 with the hiring manager went extremely well. I was asked to wait a few days for a follow up, then we could start discussing in person interviews. The hiring manager told me directly that she wanted to bring me in for panel interviews at the end of our call. I received nothing for a week - I sent a follow-up to the HR rep, waited another 2 weeks, sent a follow-up directly to the hiring manager, waited another week, sent another follow-up to the HR rep, then finally got a response from the HR rep saying that [paraphrased] "there's been some changes and I'll get back in touch with you soon to let you know! We've got some opportunities that fit your skill sets..."

    As you probably guessed, that last communication was a couple weeks ago. I consider myself a patient person and very empathetic to the pace of corporate America... but this was too much.

    What's most disappointing about this situation was how excited the hiring manager was and then all of a sudden it was like I was an alien. I'm sure a better candidate surfaced, or some internal drama happened. I'm an adult, I can handle and accept that this is just the nature of business. But at a minimum, I expected a follow up in a few days... not 6 weeks after they stated their initial intentions.

    Things happen. People get busy. Internal politics happen. Better candidates come along. I get it. But if you express sincere interest in bringing a candidate in, don't go radio silent when the situation changes. Especially when the candidate is referred by a current employee! All in all, I'm just disappointed because Gallo is consistently rated as one of the best employers in the country, it was a great opportunity, and there was great mutual interest.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at E. & J. Gallo Winery (Modesto, CA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    First there was a 30 minute phone interview, then an on-site conference, which spanned two days. The first day featured a tour and dinner. On the second day, there were three 30 minute interviews. Overall the conference was great, and everything was provided and paid for. However, it was difficult to contact the recruiter about details prior to the conference, and I received the conference schedule only a day or two before the conference.
