    Tasting Coordinator Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at M. Shanken Communications (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I met with two senior editors regarding the tasting coordinator position. They were very friendly and asked many questions regarding experience- including a pop quiz to test my wine knowledge. I followed up the next day for the interview with no response. I reached out again two weeks later and got a response that I did not get the position. Overall it wasn't a good fit but the interviewers were lovely.
