Application Process & Interviews at Pernod Ricard Winemakers
- Average rating for Recruitment, based on 5 reviews7.8 / 10
Please describe the interview process and assessments.
Long and extensive. Some 9 months from start to end. Began with a video application followed by phone interviews and in person and online interviews mixed with psychometric testing
7 interview stages from first video submission to final selection. Submitted a 3 minute video, received a call back, had 2-3 phone interviews in English (and some Spanish), a face to face assessment day in Spain, another phone interview, and psychometric testing.
I missed the assessment day but otherwise went through the same process as other candidates; filling in application and submitting my CV with a 3 minute video detailing why I want to work as a Wine Ambassador for Pernod Ricard Winemakers and why I would be suited to the role. The next step was an interview in North Ryde, followed by a phone interview with my to be manager in Japan.
What questions were you asked in your interviews?
A lot about my previous experience in our industry
About my work experience, attitude to wine, career goals and aspirations, level of Spanish (my second language), knowledge of the PRW graduate program, and if I would consider working in the UK and/or USA.
Do you have any specific tips and advice for candidates applying to your company? How would you recommend they best prepare?
Ensure you read up about the company before hand and be yourself. Don't fall into the trap of thinking the company culture is what it's not.
Be yourself. Be honest. Only apply if you're passionate about wine and the wine business. Only apply if you're interested in wine education. Make a knockout video that shows off your individual interests and skills.
Be genuine, yourself and put your best foot forward. Prepare by researching the company, the wine industry and the market you plan on going to
