    Lab Technician Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Sazerac in May 2019.

    Interview

    Applied via LinkedIn and received a phone call a week later from a recruiter. Arranged for a phone interview with the HR manager next, and then with the Quality/Production Manager. Mainly all interviews consisted of explanation about the role. Did not receive an e-mail about an on-site visit or next steps after that. Overall, HR is a little all over the place but they are a rapidly growing company.

    Easy Interview

    Interview

    Several phone calls, phone interview. Utterly unprofessional. Ghosted several times on phone calls, unresponsive to emails, then suddenly responded weeks later asking if I was still interested, inviting me to another phone interview and then not calling and ghosting again. Their recruitment group needs some serious help.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sazerac.

    Interview

    The interview process was straight forward. Three different rounds; someone in Human Resources, the person you report to, and then his boss. It was good to see that they seemed to care if you'd be a culture fit.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Sazerac in June 2015.

    Interview

    Initial phone call from recruiter asking why I am in the job market, what my current/former role responsibilities were, few behavioral "tell me about a time when" questions. Scheduled second interview with hiring manager who was very rude. Somehow could not grasp the fact that I had been paid "salary" while working as an intern. Spent nearly 10 minutes asking about that rather than my qualifications.

    Single Barrel Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Frankfort, KY

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Sazerac (Frankfort, KY) in May 2011.

    Interview

    Identified this position via an internet work board and applied for a position. The HR Director called to discuss the role, salary, location, etc. She called back with an interveiw date two days later at Frankfort with a Brand Manager and this HR individual. We sat at a conference table with the company individuals manning laptops and firing questions for over one hour. They thanked for my time and advised someone would be in touch.
    The weekend following, HR called my home office and we were out of town for a function. alled again Sunday evening but my cell carrier did not forward the call until Monday. I called and she wanted me at Frankfort agin Monday but since that date was out, could I be there on Tuesday and I said yes. Another trip to Frankfort and met with two more indiduals, one from Marketing and another from Production. A personality test, on-line followed. Hr called again to inquire of my availability meet on Wednesday with a VP in Louisville and again i said yes.
    This was a unique interveiw with questions out of the ordinary. How many gas stations are there in Kentucky? How many bottles of bourbon are sold in Kentucky each year?
    Most telling was an invitation to think back to high school days and denote a song that best defined me. It certainly seemed like an age determination ploy.
    Also, my resume listed work experience for 20+ years and this individual requested i go back to the beginning to allow him a better opportunity to understand me.
    As for the people, they are good, hard working individuals, mostly hired from local areas. The brand manager was a former university football player (popular hire in this state).
    The work culture is intense but fair.
    Money for this position was moderate, given the level of expectation.

    Engineering Rotation Program Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sazerac in September 2017.

    Interview

    Talked to a recruiter at my university career fair. A week later she reached out to set up a phone interview. It went well, she was very nice and friendly, no hard questions, just behavioral and past experience. I was told she'd send out emails the following week for an in-site interview, but I never got it, so I guess I didn't make the cut.
