    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Southern Glazer's Wine & Spirits (Independence, OH) in February 2018.

    Interview

    Held in a hotel lobby. Described as "Speed Dating". there were 2 of us interviewing with 3 managers of the company. I really enjoyed the interviewing style. Spent about 20-25 minutes with each manager. They each touched on different subjects and had different questions to ask. They each really wanted to get a feel for my personality, knowledge and experience.
