Do you work at Anheuser-Busch? How did you find the job? How did you get that first interview?

Any advice for someone trying to get in?

I dropped off my resume and application at your home office in Jacksonville, Fl. Please tell where else I need to go on the internet or different site.

I've been laid off of my job after 17 years of dedication and loyalty. I would love to work for this company doing what ever I can to create a new future career for me and my family. Thank you Sincerely, David Pringle

Why do people respond to this blog as if they are applying for a job? This is not an application portal. It is to inform candidates about the company -- job stability, atmosphere, benefits, culture, etc.

Well I don't know what they do really, but If I ran the place you'd have to undergo a beer drinking competition i.e. how many beers you can down in a set amount of time, then I'd take the winner's from that initial sampling of applicants and maybe ask a few brewing questions, oh I don't know like maybe explain the role of hops in the fermentation process or something like that... you know just to test your general overall knowledge of the process. Well anyway, Good Luck!

My advice is know someone. The ONLY way you get into this place is an internal candidate suggesting your application or work at a $5h job and apply internally there. Good luck to all of us who don't know anyone!

I worked at AB Houston for 7 years. I started as a weekender and I didn't know anyone at the plant. I had some manufacturing experience which helped me in the interview. I took a test with 400 people and only 5 were hired for weekender positions. The 3 interviews were demanding. You have to apply at buschjobs.com
now, and hope a weekender or seasonal position opens up. The weekender job pays $25 hour. Then bust your ass when you get inside until they make you an apprentice.
Then enjoy your $60,0000+ a year.

Also, to add, I just don't feel enthusiastic about any other opportunities, unless of course I could get in with Coors, which I just applied to. I just really want a job in the beer business and would do anything it takes. Please email me at nicholas.fisher2@gmail.com if you have any special tips for my unique situation.

To meet someone on the inside, you might try the
local bar that is next to the brewery. When I worked
at AB, a group of 10 plant workers would meet at the
bar at the end of the shift every Friday. The plant
has 3 shifts. Just wait until the shift ends, usually
at 3pm. Then drive by the factory and wait until the
employees leave. Then follow them to the local hangout.
Buy them a round of beers, and I'm sure someone will
give you a referral in getting the job.

Thanks fornthe tip. I will definitely have to try this as I am still on the job hunt. Are you no longer an employee of AB? I would really like to network with you if possible!

I resigned about 2 years ago to pursue another opportunity.
Your best bet is to try to get hired as a seasonal or weekender
for the busy summer season. You've got to be persistent, because
there are hundreds of people applying just like you. I've seen
unqualified people get hired just because they had a buddy on the inside.
AB Houston usually has an annual car show where the brewery workers show
off their classic cars. Maybe Colorado has something similar. You could
go to something like that and network. Or sneak into the annual fair that
is usually in the company parking lot.

I was hired as a part-time weekend operator. I then became a full-time apprentice operator 6 months later. I worked on the can lines which involved walking all shift, stacking cardboard into the machine and fixing jams. The machine was old, and jams occurred every 5 minutes. The worst part was the 100 degree heat and humidity all summer long in Houston. If you get hired, tell them you want to work on the bottle line filler or labeler. The bottle lines are more relaxed.

Thanks for your response! I think the job opening is for a Utilities Technician? Is that the same thing as a operator job which you held?

Utilites involved the steam, power, cooling areas of the plant, mainly in the brewing section. I was in the packaging department running the machinery. Utilities technician is a good job. Plan on working all shifts, weekends, holidays, etc. since it's all dictated by seniority.

I worked at the Houston brewery from 2000 to 2007. The shifts back then were 7-3, 3-11, 11-7. Lunch was paid and so were the 2 breaks. You could pick your shift every quarter, as long as it wasn't day shift. They only rotated me during the first year or two. After 2 years, I was able to hold the shift I wanted. Day shift wasn't available until after 5 years. Most of the training took place on day shift, though. Things may be different now, since AB was bought out by InBev a few years ago.
Just like anywhere else, the company invested tons of money into the machinery so they could make do with less employees and demand more work from each employee. Those who came in with a skill (mechanic and electrician) had the best working conditions and were treated better. Vacations were a problem because of the seniority. For the first three years, I only had the choice of vacation in Jan and Feb. But the pay was very good for the work that I did.

I'm going for the Telephone assesment Or TAP test in a week or so. Can someone tell me how to pass it or what they are looking for? I know they want you to get a disgruntled employee to be a team player. And when the boss calls after you hang up with said employee they want you to own up to the production interruption. Any other suggestions/answers?

The first senerio is like you said, encouraging a co-worker. Be encouraging but make sure you voice that AB-Inbev is a team environment. My role player was tuff. He kept saying, "I don't understand" which would prompt you to reply! Even after I ensured him he was doing a great job he would still come back with " I don't understand why you wanted to talk to me , am I doing something wrong. I had to end the conversation , he wouldn't! I said to continue working hard like your doing, and focus on teamwork .

The second was, you are training the same Employee, and due to your absent and another employee leaving his work area 1000 bottles are mis labeled. Your boss calls and wants to know what happened. I told the boss that ultimately I was responsible, but the other individual should have told the team he was leaving his area to help someone else. I recommened in the future I would organize a group huddle when ever I, was going to be away training, and let everyone know what to due if something like that happens again in the future. To me the second one was easier, just read the material, use the names of the employees and role play !

They called the next day and told me I passed.

It's a good idea to always defuse a tense situation without casting blame or accusing someone. Always remain calm and try to stay in control of the conversation while developing rapport with the "employee". He may be experiencing relationship problems at home or is disoriented and tired from all the shift work. At AB, the culture was that if a mistake was made, the process failed, not the employee. Don't get all frazzled about 50 cases of bad beer. The term they used was "process loss". It's more important for everyone to work safe and for good communication between the employee and supervisor.

O.K. Thanks for all the help. I guess i just wanted to know if i should focus more on me or the team when talking to the employee and boss. All the help is appreciated.

Wait a week if you don't hear back from them sooner. If you think you did good, call them to follow up. No one ever called me. They want to see if you show initiative, and it helps to be persistent. Good luck.

Emphasize how well you work within a team environment. Mention how you are always ready to help other operators if they need assistance fixing jams or cleaning up spilled beer. Tell them that you are very punctual and always come back from breaks on time. Mention your dedication to producing a quality product and performing meticulous inspections on the cans and bottles.
Tell them that you want a career at InBev, and are willing to work any shift and holidays. Let them know that you are ready to learn how to be an outstanding machine operator. Tell them that you welcome all advice from supervisors and experienced operators on how you can perform your job better. Memorize a few facts about InBev and why you feel that the brewery is a perfect match for your skills. Good luck.

They never advertise for basic laborer entry level type jobs however?

That swill. But at least that company is a manufacturing base for some cities. And you can always be that "good fit". And if they call you a "real go-getter"... I remember at one job, my boss called a guy a "real workhorse". I pictured a Budweiser Clydesdale. No kidding, every time I saw that guy...workhorse, gawd.

Here, you'll be in a room with 2 supervisors and 6 other candidates. They make you assemble different plastic and mechanical parts to see how you work as a team. Communication is strongly encouraged. Use words that show you care about accuracy, productivity, and working safely.

Work fast, put the pieces together correctly, and maintain a clean work area.

The maintenance mechanic applicants were given a bench test in a room off the machine shop area. As long as your familiar with conveyer systems, valves, gear boxes, pumps, replacing motors and hydraulics you should do fine. There are overhauls on the machinery at least once a month, and the machines constantly need maintenance (even the newer ones).

They want to know that you're the guy that will be an asset in the maintenance dept. Tell them how your skills and work ethic will keep the machines properly maintained, so as to minimize downtime. Most of the packers run a case of beer every second (30,000 cases in 8 hrs), so tell them that your able to get things fixed quickly and correctly. Mention that working safe is a priority of yours. They like people who know how to work safe. I've seen too many mechanics get their fingers smooshed or finger tips chopped off on the high speed conveyors. And since the floors are wet most of the time, trips and falls were common.
