    Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Saint Charles, MO
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeksinterviewed at Coca-Cola Company (Saint Charles, MO) in February 2008.

    Interview

    Initial phone interview then a 1:2 interview. For the sales job I had to pitch a product in a scenerio. It involved pitching their current big unveiling, Fuze. They presented a challenge of a predominate Hispanic neighborhood grocery store that was hesitant to bring in new products. I had to study the fact sheet then recite if from memory in the pitch. They gave extremely strong one-after-the-other rebuttals and looked for confidence, high-energy, a don't quit attitude and strong product knowledge. Study the nutrition label and grab the drink out of the cooler in the room to use as a prop, they loved that. They hired a lot of part time MBA students so having that on your resume won't hurt.
    They are looking for hard core, cut-throat, confident (not cocky) professional sales people. They want extremely high energy and motivated sales people. Show them your confidence and professionalism for added points.

    Interview Questions

    • Rebuttals presented in sales scenerio after giving you 5 minutes to study the product fact sheet: Why do I want this product? What is my gross cost? What is my profit? What kind of discounts can you offer me? What kinds of promotions will you offer me? Why do you want to put this cooler in my store, I don't have the room. Pepsi just gave me this __. What about the nutrition information? I don't know... Will you take the cooler out in a month if it doesn't sell? Will you take back the product if I change my mind?   1 Answer

    Sales Director Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Atlanta, GA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Coca-Cola Company (Atlanta, GA) in December 2009.

    Interview

    I went through multiple rigorous panel interviews where they used Targeted Selection to address specific skill competencies. Overall I did extremely well. They started with 19 candidates and I was the only candidate left at the end of the process. The hiring manager was fantastic. Very personable ane encouraging. So was the local HR manager. I was told repeatedly the job was mine and their challenge was to put together a compelling offer. At the very last second senior mgt decided to place an internal employee in the job. They never even told the hiring manager who is a VP. He was very embarrassed and of course I was out a good job opportunity.

    Interview

    I've applied to several positions at Coca Cola, some of which I am overqualified for. Never once have I received a "not interested", "if your credential match what we are looking for" or even "I'm sorry, but that position has been filled." It makes you wonder is Coca Cola just a you gotta know someone or do they actually recruit outside of internal referrals........

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Coca-Cola Company (Islamabad, Islamabad (Pakistan)) in May 2012.

    Interview

    A detailed Test that is mostly based on general knowledge and IQ questions. Overall the difficulty level was up and if you are not good in IQ, clearing the test would be difficult. Interview on the other hand was casual, but since it was a group panel, the questions coming were rather unexpected and yet confidence remained a key to get in.
