    I applied online – interviewed at Coca-Cola Company.

    Interview Details

    I saw the job posted online and applied for it. A week and a half later, I heard back from them 2 days before the interview was set up. Interview was laid back and went very well and the sales boss said she will bring me in for a second interview. 2 hours later I got a call that I was offered the job and that I start in a week and a couple days. Its all about confidence and personality. Thats all they look for.

    I applied online – interviewed at Coca-Cola Company in July 2013.

    Interview Details

    I interviewed with two Area Sales Managers who asked typical behavioral based interview questions off of a manuscript. This was followed by a mock sales pitch where I had to try and sell more Coca-Cola products to a hesitant store manager. The interview lasted under an hour and despite receiving positive feedback from the interviewers, I did not receive an offer.

    Key Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Knoxville, TN
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Knoxville, TN
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 7 weeksinterviewed at Coca-Cola Company in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    All applications must be completed online. Since so many applications are received I was encouraged to continue applying repeatedly if I really wanted to work for them. I know this is true as I had a previous career on the Corporate side of the business. Once you are in consideration and are contacted by a talent acquisition specialist, the interview process moves quickly unless there are business need changes in the middle of your process where the talent acquisition specialist may change, the position gets cancelled, etc. This is not uncommon with the recent merging of Corporate and Ops. Follow up and closure after the interviews could be improved.

    Interview Questions
    • Be prepared to role play a sales scenario. You are given 10 minutes to prepare your strategy before delivering. Your interviewing managers pose as the customer.   Answer Question
