    I applied online and was immediately directed to a personality test. Based on that a week later I got an email to schedule a Hirevue interview which is an online based interview system where you record your answers or type answers for case study. Then I was invited to fly down to Chicago and do in person interview which consisted of all day and fun and imaginative case studies.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Diageo.

    Interview

    I applied on the company website and was contacted for a phone interview 1 month later. Another month went by before they reached out to me to schedule in person interviews. There were two rounds. Everyone I interacted with was extremely pleasant. However, the process was drawn out over 3 1/2 months.

    Interview

    Applied Online, Recruiter emailed me to setup interview.

    On the day of interview, just minutes before interview another email says, "last minute change, interview rescheduled for X date, Y time.".

    The X date and Y time, was expecting the call and didn't call me. Emailed them, in reply "they asked for same day different time". No call yet.

    One of the worst interviews so far in my career. Waste of time.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Diageo in September 2017.

    Interview

    Online application that immediately prompted me to take two personality assessments. The first was how strongly I agree or disagree with statements, the second rating what I was most and least likely to do in a number of scenarios in the workplace. Feedback was immediate and I was sent a report evaluating my assessment results.

    Business Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Norwalk, CT (US)
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Diageo (Norwalk, CT (US)) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I went through the normal application process by completing the forms along with behavior questionaire. It was a little surprising that I was called for an in-person interview directly, without any phone or online interview as indicated by other submitters. I was interviewed by a lead BSA and the business partner. Questions are around my current job and how would I handle a specific situation. I received the email a couple of days later that the position is filled with another applicant. I contacted the managers interviewed me to ask if there's anything I can improve to make through my future interviews. They both answered that I am still a potential candidate for another opening. However I think I would get notification this time even if they choose other candidates, since the opening is not the job title that I applied for. I am considering it as a denial at this point.

    There is a first online aptitude/personality test before the CV and motivational letter screening. I did this some days ago but I'm still waiting for an answer. It should take some time I suppose.

    Marketing Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Diageo (New York, NY (US)) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Extremely lengthy process which lasted 5 months. My main HR contact turned out to be sketchy and disconnected from what was going on. Really was
    not a good people person. I was handed off to 2-3 different HR people throughout the time but somehow I had to deal with this main woman who was more focused on promoting herself on LinkedIn than anything. I made it pretty far and had another offer with another company. I immediately let her know but she could care less and did not seem to think it was time critical. She eventually called me back wanting to set up time for another call later in the week without getting I was going to take another job if they were not prepared to offer me anything. She ruined my experience. Most of the people in the office seemed good but HR missed the mark by a lot. Not good when that's the face of the company.

    Packaging Technologist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Diageo in March 2016.

    Interview

    I've had a few online interviews with Diageo and they have been negative experiences. Personally I find it incredibly difficult to answer interview questions when you are talking to a screen and not a person (the text of the question pops up, you get 30 seconds to think of an answer, and then your response is recorded). The most recent time it took 7 months before I received an email saying the position had been cancelled. Unprofessional and very slow moving process.
