Average Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Coca-Cola Company.

Interview

The process took close to a month. I had two interviews with a recruiter and then an interview via phone with 4 different level managers. The process was very basic. The questions were very standard for a sales interview process. They give some situational scenarios which you have to work through but over all very basic format.

Interview Questions

Negotiation

Very straight forward. The company has a range for salary. Bonuses are rated the same for the position.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Coca-Cola Company (Austin, TX) in July 2014.

    Interview

    I found the posting through LinkedIn and applied for it. I was contacted that same week and did a brief phone screening and she said that someone would be calling me if they wanted to do a face to face interview. About 2 weeks went by and I got a call saying they wanted to set up a in-person interview. I did the interview and it was very basic. A panel of 3 managers conducted the interview, and they asked 4 questions. The first one was just tell me about your work experience and then the other 3 were situation questions. After that they gave me a sheet of paper with a scenario on it to role play with one of the interviewers. My situation was a small convenience store owner was unhappy about our competitors and also pricing was a issue too. After that they asked "why me" for this job and then opened it up for questions. They told me they would make a decision that day and that the recruiter would get back to me within a week.

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Coca-Cola Company (Bismarck, ND) in July 2014.

    Interview

    Star format will be required. Need to prepare for these types of questions and answer them how they expect. Also did a mock sell. Had a scenario when we needed to get our product into a store to increase our market unit in comparison to competition. Overall wasn't too difficult. Did bring in a coke product in the interview.

    Interview

    I applied online for the account manager position and a week later I receive a phone call from a recruiter in GA. The phone called consisted of information about yourself, background, and why you want to work for Coca-Cola. The recruiter then sets you up for an interview. I was interviewed by 2 ASM and they asked you between 5-7 behavioral questions and you should answer them in the STAR format. You then are asked at the end to do a role play. They give you a piece of paper with a scenario on it and they leave the room for 10 minutes to give you time to prepare yourself.

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Coca-Cola Company (Grand Rapids, MI).

    Interview

    I applied via Hotjobs and received a call back three months later. Simple 15 minute face to face interview that was followed up by a very informal hour long face to face interview. It took a while to hear back but once the process started it went very quickly. Overall a very easy process.

    applied online. wasn't contacted for about a month by an hr recruiter. phone interview/screening, then an in person interview. I was called back a few days later to schedule another interview.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Coca-Cola Company (Lenexa, KS).

    Interview

    Standard phone screening about a half a week after I applied. Was called back by the end of that week to set up an interview time. Interview was pretty standard, although there was a role play where you had to be the Account Manager and sell to a store owner. (The role play is nothing like the job actually is.) Interview took about an hour or so.

    Interview Questions

    • All of the questions were standard aside from the role play.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I did not negotiate. The pay and benefits seemed fair at the time of hire.
