Project Manager Interview

Anonymous Employee
Atlanta, GA

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 months - interviewed at The Coca-Cola Company in March 2012.

Interview Details – There is a very structured hiring/interview process. The recruiter contacted me when I was selected for an interview. The interview process did not start until around 3 months after I applied online. At least 5 internal & external candidates are selected to interview for each job. The interview was a panel interview with a STAR format for the behavioral questions. After the interview, the recruiter contacted me to let me know that I was being offered the job.

Interview Question – Give an example of when you purposely set a goal that you knew would be difficult to achieve? What was the outcome?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Salary negotiations were with the recruiter & they have guidelines based on the level of the job. The offer package was mailed to my house for signatures. There is a background check that takes up to 10 days to clear before you can start.

Content Manager Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at The Coca-Cola Company in February 2014.

Interview Details – I was contacted by Talent Acquisition to schedule an in-person interview. I met with two people, including hiring manager, in person and met with two people over the phone. I was told at the end of my interview that they would contact the top candidate(s) for an interview with the boss' boss. I was contacted the following Monday for a phone follow-up interview with the boss' boss which was very brief and to the point. I was then called two weeks later with an offer.

Interview Question – The questions are pretty straight-forward and they do an excellent job preparing you with the STAR system. Just make sure to review the information they provide as far as core competencies and you should do fine.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No room for negotiation and it wasn't needed, as they made a generous offer.

Marketing Intern Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at The Coca-Cola Company.

Interview Details – Initial communication was very clear. They gave me enough information to prepare well. The interview process was well organized and my interviewer made sure that I felt comfortable during the interview. She gave a detailed introduction about the program I was interviewing for and ask regular behavioral questions. The most important part was about market trends and the competitive stance of each of their brands. It required research about company products and the current market news.

Project Manager Interview

Project Manager

Interviewed at The Coca-Cola Company

Interview Details – Interview was years ago, and therefore could have changed since then. Well organized initial process, with multiple interviewers in two separate 60 minute long interviews. Good thought provoking questions with standard format required for the answer. Answer format expected included describing the situation or context, the action I took to solve the problem described and the results from the actions I took. Quick turnaround and offer.

Interview Question – Describe a situation where you were given negative feedback. Why? How did you handle it?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Quick process. Stated my needs and did one round of negotiation. Met halfway and got a signing bonus to make up for some of the difference.

Finance Manager Interview

Finance Manager

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at The Coca-Cola Company in January 2009.

Interview Details – They use the STAR format for all interviews. STAR is a standard format of questions, so you can find it on the Internet pretty easily. People were all pretty nice during the interview process. I had two series of live interviews at the Corporate Headquarters in Atlanta before getting an offer. The process was a little slow.

Interview Question – Again. These are STAR format questions. "Tell me about a situation whee you didn't get along with someone you worked with".   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I did not negotiate, since the offer was reasonable.
