Diageo Graduate Programme
 
Hi everyone!

I know Diageo just launched its first graduate programme this year, and I was wondering if anyone has applied for it?

I submitted the application form, but am I supposed to get a values fit questionnaire to fill up? Once I clicked submit, I didn't get any questionnaire form.

Thanks guys!

Diageo not bad, a lot of incentive trips and free liquor according to my sister. Bonuses also quite high 9-10 months on average.

Hi, may I know how you managed to get this info? Just via an email to general hr contact? When I asked, they told me this will be made known much later in the selection process. Guessing it's post-AC round.

They are transparent by 2 virtue. First is that it is usually fixed or have a fixed range. Second is that there were previous batch of MA who will leak the amount out. This is Diageo first batch in Singapore, so there is no past data or previous batch to give you the answer. Application started just slightly less than 3 weeks ago, and no MNC move so fast that AC would have happened within 3 weeks, so no one would have gotten to negotiate with HR yet. So this joker is implying that he manage to just ask the HR without getting to negotiate with them about the pay? and they just give it up? If you truly believe that, you probably shouldn't be applying for a MAP.

Depends on company policy, some companies are quite upfront about starting pay and even readily share them with students during campus roadshow.

I don't know about Diageo, but you shouldn't make generalizations for all companies and assume that people can only talk about salary during contract negotiation.

Unregistered 08-01-2016 02:36 PM

Has anyone done the video interview? How many questions are there? And how did you find it? Thanks so much! :)

Oh do tell, which company would be willing to share their pay upfront? Other than big 4 being a possibility, but I still doubt so, I seriously doubt any company share any pay upfront. You are talking about salary, something's HR requires the staff to keep secret, and for a good reason. Company goes through huge length to keep salary a secret, just to tell any Tom dick or Harry who emailed in to ask the salary? What if it's a competitior? What if it's a current staff? Wouldn't it affect morale?

And to add on, someone above even mentioned that HR say that it'll be discussed at a later stage, proving my point

I guess if I have some medical problem that prevents me from drinking too much, I shouldn't apply to work here?

under the veil of anonymity, many things on this forum must be taken with a huge pinch of salt...

Unregistered 08-01-2016 09:23 PM

A lot of ppl here also jokers, how about trying to get an offer first before nitpicking on salary? Speculate so much in the end maybe dun even get any offer.

Unregistered 08-01-2016 10:46 PM

Yah i think even forums like hwz are more reliable in some cases

Not so much that you need to drink to entertain, but you do need to try the products. They require you to be of the legal drinking age to apply for this role.

Hey guys! Am scheduled for the assessment centre for Diageo under this graduate program next monday. Pretty nervous (first ac ever!), but excited at the same time to learn more! Really love the culture and values of the company, can safely say that it's my dream job, and what I want for my future career!

Was wondering if anyone who has gone through this particular AC before, care to share some tips and advice, like what kind of questions and what to take note of? I understand I can google those out, but it would be great if I could get inputs from you guys!

Thank you so much!

The answer for AC is always the same. Be yourself. You can read all about how to act and behave and change yourself accordingly, but you are going to suffer in the long haul. They are looking for a specific characteristic and if you force it to get in, you will not be able to enjoy your work anyhow

Unregistered 14-02-2016 01:36 PM

anyone here who has completed the ac already, and has already gotten a reply from diageo regarding acceptance/rejection?

Really appreciate. Thanks.

You need to wait for about 1 to 2 weeks

Unregistered 08-04-2016 04:59 PM

personality test/questionaire -> digital interview -> assessment centre

Unregistered 08-04-2016 05:17 PM

Anyone from the Tuesday group who heard back?

They said to get back to us by Friday but still no news yet. I supposed they already sent out the acceptance probably to the Monday batch...

Unregistered 08-04-2016 05:36 PM

i guess they would have selected someone already since its the end of the week. Or you could email back to them?

Unregistered 08-04-2016 05:46 PM

Yup I did, But no replies from them.

Were you from Monday or Tuesday?

Unregistered 08-04-2016 05:55 PM

No news yet. Sigh.
