Hey, Colonel_Columbus! How many people interviewed you?


#62

2 of them lol, 1 from the 1st interview & 1 Head of HR in my country :slight_smile:


#63

hey folks, was out of the forum for some time now… was not keeping a good health. but back now :slight_smile:
Hope everyone is doing good.
I just stumbled upon this neat Heineken Vid, maybe you’ll like it : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R6xLcItSJN8

I was thinking maybe we could start a discussion here to help all of us with our preparation like discussing sponsorships, or the industry trends as such in our respective regions ? Am sure it would help us all… What say folks ?


#64

thanks for sharing colonel.
Am sure you nailed it :slight_smile:


#65

Hey Sunny, its in april first week… working towards it :slight_smile:
are you done with yours ?


#66

Thanks!


#67

Haha, the video is funny :)) Discussions are probably a good idea, but my interview is tomorrow already, so for me it’s too late I’m afraid. Anyways, from what I found out, the brewing industry nowadays experiences fierce competition from craft brewing, the developed markets are quite saturated and there is growing demand for drinks with lower alcohol content. Am I right?


#68

Oh, and by the way, I like this commercial https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S1ZZreXEqSY


#69

Was any asked on conflicts please, or passion or leadership or team work


#70

thank you very much, any other pointers you like to share am from nigeria and do have my interview tomorrow.


#71

Of course. However, the questions are going to be different for every candidate. So… Just be ready to answer behavioral questions


#72

Not really… be confident and friendly. Good luck :slight_smile:


#73

@sunny_soul : hope you had a good interview!!
for the industry, i agree with the focus moving on craft beer and increase in local competition, specially in the developing markets.
but the demand for lower alcohol content beverages, i think is a local issue and depends on the respective market than the global trend.
thoughts ?


#74

Any luck with the face to face interview any pointers


#75

@Sunny_Soul,

How many people took your interview and who were they?


#76

Just one, a lady from Amsterdam


#77

Well, no technical questions. There were just several behavioral questions based on the personality test and then time to ask your own questions. Questions were like “Give me a specific example of a time when you inspired someone. Give me a specific example when something else…”. A very pleasant experience indeed. However, it took me only 30 min, so I’m afraid I didn’t give enough details. Anyways, the results will be available in mid-April. Good luck to everyone!


#78

#79
