    Average Interview


    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Southern Glazer's Wine & Spirits in August 2019.


    One telephone: get-to-know-you by the sales manager. Second one two days later on the telephone with multiple sales managers. Hour-long interview. Very open and honest people, built relationships based on the interview already.
