    Corporate Recruiter Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at HEINEKEN USA.

    Interview

    I was contacted by an HR Coordinator and spoke with her briefly and then had a phone screen with a Senior Manager in HR, the call went seemingly well and at the end he stated that he would like to bring me into the office for an onsite interview with his Director. I agreed to the meeting and sent over my availability, to which I received no reply. After multiple emails sent I was left with no further correspondence, essentially left in the dark after being told they wanted to move forward. One of the basic functions of recruitment is managing the candidate experience and providing feedback, especially after you state that you want to bring someone in to interview. To go dark on a candidate is a massive misstep and something that should never happen on any level. I could not recommend this company to anyone in my network, and after speaking with a few connections it turns out that this is common practice for them. At the end of the day you need to ask yourself, would you want to work with a company who can't manage something as simple as a candidate interview?

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at HEINEKEN USA.

    Interview

    Applied online for a position and then was contacted by Heineken HR via email for a phone interview. After countless emails trying to set something up as I had great interest in the position - only to have the person who contacted me fall off the earth. Incredibly unprofessional. Have talked to others in the industry who have had a similar experience with this HR department. A shame.

    Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at HEINEKEN USA in June 2014.

    Interview

    Went through HR screen, 2 phone interviews, final panel interview. Panel interview is hard, need to be prepared to discuss situations throughout your career that you have experienced their 4 Pillars. Need to answer all questions in the STAR format (Situation/Task, Action, Result). 8 of these questions were asked in total. Need to come in with plenty of examples.

    Presentation portion of the panel interview was interesting- I think they only cared that it stayed under 5 minutes.

    Sales Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at HEINEKEN USA in January 2017.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a Manpower recruiter for a Sales role at Heineken USA.
    The recruiter was fine, but at times a little unorganized. At one point, the recruiter called me out of the blue to ask what time our interview was, because their computer had crashed and lost the information. The interview itself did not begin until after I completed 2 tests online. During the actual phone interview, the recruiter/interviewer stuck to an interview format and sounded very robotic and unenthused. I truly believe that this is not a smart way of hiring great talent. Heineken's actual HR, persons who work for the company, should be in charge of talent acquisition, as opposed to a 3rd party. During my interview, I used sales terms to explain my knowledge and expertise and the interviewer seemed lost by my responses. It has been 3 weeks and the Manpower recruiter has not contacted me to give me an update, although I have promptly followed up via email. Lucky for me, I have already accepted a fantastic offer from a different beverage supplier. Sorry Hieneken.
