Mission: Delight the World's Beer Drinkers
Work hard, play hard company culture
Job functions were siloed with little potential to crossover to a different function once hired
It’s tough being the number 2 product in a mature category
Advice to Management
The regular trainings and corporate culture were fantastic. Bring your people together for regular meetings (instead of teleconferences) is inspiring and motivating.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at MillerCoors (Chicago, IL (US)) in June-2009.
I had an initial phone call with the recruiter, and then later the recruiter invited me back for a phone screen interview.
The phone screen interview consisted of several behavioral questions.
At the time, it wasn't clear whether the jobs were going to be open because the marketing function was moving from CO and WI to Chicago, and no one knew who would end up moving or not. Therefore the interviewer was looking to build a base of pre-screened candidates should an opening come up.
I got the impressoin that there was a lot of local talent in Chicago due to the recent Kraft layoffs and that local talent was strongly preferred. I did interview for a specific position or team, although I have heard since then that usually you interview for a specific position.
The recruiter made it clear that the company was in a time of flux with the merger and that the transition might be bumpy.
