    Spec Writer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Plainfield, IL (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Diageo (Plainfield, IL (US)) in December 2013.

    Interview

    It was a pretty straight forward phone screen. The current position interview was pretty short as my resume had been forwarded from my interview a month back. No odd ball questions but just experience about SAP questions. Previous product background with liquids and frozen foods helped with my current interview. The first interview was in December so all in all, it took a month even though the second interviewer came back in a week to hire me. This, of course, doesn't include the 2 week background check, so one can add 3 weeks to the one month from December 2013 interview.

    Negotiation

    contract position so the pay is low. I took it to gain experience in databases as my old company is moving to a different state.

    Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY (US)

    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.

    Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Napa, CA (US)

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Diageo (Napa, CA (US)) in October 2015.

    Interview

    I was referred through an employee. HR called me within a day or two and was very excited about my experience, talked about the culture at Diageo and how they believed in promoting from within, investing in their people, great benefits, etc. We were mutually excited and I was scheduled to meet with 4 individuals for an hour each. One of the women in particular was very aggressive in her interview style mentioning that there was a lot of "red tape", that I would have to be "aggressive" in order to do my job successfully and basically trying to discourage me from the position. I left the interview thinking job aside, I did not want to work with that person. HR then stalled for over a week on follow-up and it wasn't until the person that referred me contacted me that I found out the real story. This woman was threatened by me (by experience and looks) yet her reasoning was that I did not "send a follow up thank you" which would have been the professional thing to do. Totally ridiculous. I am glad I did not get the job - too many politics and turnover.

    Marketing Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boca Raton, FL (US)

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Diageo (Boca Raton, FL (US)) in August 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was very organized. For me, It began with a phone interview that outlined the job expectations and more about the company. The first time, it was more about describing what you'd be getting into (I had an employee who sent them a reference letter but I think there are usually two phone interviews). The next interview (face to face) was very professionally friendly, like a meet and greet. They asked questions that were specific to the job and it was like open conversation format. I had been used to interviewing as more of a question and answer process, but this was better and I regret not speaking more about myself and leading the conversation (where it's usually the other way around). Depending on the position, I had 6 people interviewing me, and I was SO nervous but they made me feel really good about myself and comfortable. Even though I didn't get the job, I have no hostility towards them or the company(s) because of how real and nice everyone was. Everything happens for a reason!

    Interview Questions

    • The usual "Tell us about yourself" "Why would you be a good fit for this position" "What motivates you to overcome challenges" A lot of it was just them describing certain things you'd have to do on the job and then following up with "So, how do you feel about that" To prepare, I suggest reading the job's duties and making sure you have something to say about each point how you can accomplish or fulfill it.   Answer Question

    Maintenance Tech Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Diageo in July 2015.

    Interview

    Diageo uses Hireview in my opinion it just weeds out the older blue collar workers. The Questions didn't even pertain to the job. It is a very cold process you never talk to anyone until you sit in front of a camera and answer questions to a computer not even a facetime.

    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.
