    I worked at BrewDog full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay, great staff, opportunities for progression

    Cons

    Lots of experimental practices which normally didn't work - like giving people individual sales targets or (useless) ipads

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work

    Lab Technician Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Ellon, Scotland
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at BrewDog (Ellon, Scotland) in September 2016.

    Interview

    It's been a while back, but from what I remember it was a relaxed casual interview. None of the competency questions, which I appreciated a lot. Wanted to know a lot about what I think of them and how do I find them, and how do I imagine a day of work as a lab technician. After a successful interview, they invited me for a trial day, which was an almost full 8-4 (unpaid). After a trial, another casual interview, where they wanted to hear about how did I like the work there. If it's how I imagined it would be. If there's anything I wanted to know... I thought it was going great, but more than a week later they phoned me and told me they thought this position wouldn't be enough challenging for me, so they chose a candidate who they thought would benefit more from it. I guess you can't say that you're familiar with all the work they make you do on a trial day. I only thought that would be positive asset.
