Market Development Manager Interview

Fresno, CA

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

Interview Details – There were 2 people in the room interviewing me asking basic questions and asked if I can answer them in the STAR format. That part lasted about 10-15 minuets, then they asked if we can do a mock sales pitch of selling Coca-Cola. They give you a paper that has all of the information that you need and then they give you 10 minutes to study and create your sales pitch.

Driver Merchandiser Interview

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Coca-Cola Company in February 2014.

Interview Details – It was very simple. You have a very short and easy phone interview. After that, you have the face to face with the merchandising manager. It's about a half hour to an hour. This is mostly simply merchandising question and customer service stuff.

Interview Question – First question asked was, "So, what do you know about Coca Cola." I was expecting more customer service based questions. At least know a little bit about the company.   View Answer

Market Development Manager Interview

Market Development Manager
Torrance, CA

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed 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.

Interview Question – You are used to having conversations with high-level executives, how are you going to feel about calling on a places like a Chinese Restaurant with an owner that speaks broken English?   Answer Question

Inside Sales Specialist Interview

Inside Sales Specialist
Tampa, FL

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4 days - interviewed at Coca-Cola Company in June 2013.

Interview Details – The interview process included two phone interviews, and one face to face interview. Both phone interviews involve S.T.A.R questions, so get familiar with how to answer those and you'll move on to the next phase. Once you have the face to face interview you're pretty much good to go so long as you don't really put your foot in your mouth. The supervisors here are laid back and you can see that by their demeanor and work wear. If you are interviewing for bi-lingual positions there is an automated test to take, but is pretty straight forward.

Interview Question – They'll ask you to sell them you're favorite product.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – No negotiation, everyone gets paid the same. Although its up to you how much of a bonus you want.

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Coca-Cola Company in November 2013.
