    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

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

    Manager, Financial Services III Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Ramon, CA

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Coca-Cola Company.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and had an in person interview 3 weeks later.

    I interviewed with the hiring manager and a person on his team in person and then two people via webcam in their NY office. The interview was pretty straight forward they use a behavioral interviewing approach but give you all the documentation you need in advance to prepare. I was told I would hear back from the hiring manager the next week, and I never did. Two months later I got a email from their recruiter saying thanks but no thanks. You would think a huge successful company like Coke would have better practices than that.

    Interview Details

    Applied for a different position well into my career at Coca-Cola. Went through the interview process.

After inquiring multiple times, I referred my issues to the HeRe team without any resolution.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Coca-Cola Company in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Market Development Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Torrance, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Torrance, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Coca-Cola Company in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    Had a phone screening in which I was told I would be going to the next round of face-to-face interviews with two district managers. HR from ATL or FL would be setting the appointment. Got a call a few days later and interview scheduled the following week. They email you attachments about the company and interview process. They tell you to prepare your answers using the STAR method. My email attachments included the interviewers questions, clearly a mistake by the recruiter. There were 4 questions and a role play scenario. Role Play: Make Coca-Cola the exclusive beverage provider for a high school. Establish a rapport and move into the sales pitch. Key points to hit are customer service, healthy options, overcoming price objections and be familiar with the Coke/KAB recycling program. The process hasn't changed since 2011 according to the document they sent. Just FYI I aced the interview but given my extensive sales experience and admission that this was hopefully a foot in the door in order to move up in the company probably scared them away from hiring me.
