    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Pernod Ricard USA (Irvine, CA).

    Interview

    Received an invite to the recorded interview stage, where your computer gives you a series of questions and they record your response. Tried speaking with the recruiter about the process before the interview, but my phone calls and emails were not returned. Since the video interview had a prompt deadline, I spent several hours preparing and completing the interview. The next day I was told an offer had been made. Interview and hiring etiquette goes both ways. And I am truly disappointed that such a global brand lacks the courtesy and professionalism you would expect. A complete waste of my time. I should have read the other Glassdoor reviews. It appears there is a pattern of this treatment towards candidates.
