    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Southern Wine & Spirits of America (Phoenix, AZ) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Normal deal. Meet in conference room. 2 people. Started out chatting about backgrounds, then to "why did you apply here", then down a list of required questions to which they had to note your answers for your file I suppose. Then we chatted about time frames to hire and to get promoted to sales position (was told promotion after 3 months if I did well and position was open, they had no idea of hire date even though they needed me ASAP).
    They were helpful and fun, not stress giving. Decent all around. Oh, except Google maps had the location wrong which made me late.

    Interview

    Applied via a buddy of mine. Since I knew somebody on the inside, it wasn't that long of a waiting game until hearing back. Met with the merchandiser supervisor. HR called the following week to set up the interview with one of the higher ups. Was working not long after that.

    Interview

    I interviewed with a Director of Sales and a Division Manager. The process was relaxed and friendly at their offices. They read off some standard questions, process took about 30 minutes. I got an offer a week later and went through the on-boarding process which took a couple of weeks, For the off-premise (retail) side of the business product knowledge was not as critical as it is for on-premise.

    • They asked the standard interview questions like what do you know about SWS, the three tier system, why do you want to work here?   Answer Question

    Interview

    A 4 person panel consisting of 3 no-personality sticks and one outgoing nice person with what seems is a person happy with their career. They were more interested in telling me how much of a family they were "ya right" than actually finding out how I can be a positive force for their company.
