Difficult Interview
Application

The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at William Grant & Sons (New York, NY)

Interview

I was asked to interview with the company 6 times. I've never heard if that in my life. First was with HR, then a supervisor, then a manager, General council and head of finance. When that was over they asked me to speak with the supervisor again. They then ghosted me for two weeks until I finally got a response that I didn't get the job. The whole experience was upsetting because I basically put 8 hours of work jumping to fulfill every request for interviews. Normally a second interview is a good sign but not here. I was left confused and stressed out for weeks.

Application

I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at William Grant & Sons (Girvan, Scotland, Scotland) in Feb 2021

Interview

The interview was quite casual, more focussed on personality than technical knowledge. It became apparent quite quickly that they were looking for someone more experienced so once the questions were out the way the interviewer gave me plenty of feedback on my interview along with advice on how to get my career going. I couldn't have asked for more.

Interview Questions
  • if you were to start this role and were expected to get running immediately how would you go about it.

Interview

I had a phone interview, which went okay. I felt like it was a younger recruiter on the phone who just had a basic set of questions that were obligatory for her to ask. She did not seem interested in any of the answers (though I felt very qualified if not over for this position).
