    I have been working at Pernod Ricard USA full-time

    Pros

    I've been impressed with how entrepreneurial the spirit is at Pernod Ricard and the ability to work quickly given the size of the company. The work/life balance is fantastic, with the ability to adjust your schedule to your own needs. I think there is a great wave of talent coming into the organization who are motivated to make changes for the better. Free product and happy hours are a definite bonus!

    Cons

    There is a lot of change happening and it can be challenging to scale that efficiently across the organization.

    Corporate Strategy Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Pernod Ricard USA (New York, NY) in July 2015.

    Interview

    1. '30 phone interview with recruiter
    2. Superday (was told about it, but never did this since I didn't get past the first round)

    It was so obvious that the recruiter was just going down her list of questions (read: rigid question asking, showing no interest in the candidate profile, silience as she was writing things down). After reading reviews on this site about how below their game their HR department is, I wanted to give them the benefit of the doubt but they turned out very close to what was described here. Please interact with your candidates like with human beings whom can potentially be your best assets and drivers of your company's success vs. questionnaire takers/ excel-PPT junkies.
