Merchandiser Interview

Merchandiser
Los Angeles, CA

The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Coca-Cola Company in January 2010.

Interview Details – I applied online and about a month later got a phone interview with the recruiter. She told me the position I initially applied for was filled but that a few more had opened up. The phone interview was basically to find out about related experience to the position, i.e. If I have experience merchandising and to describe it. Then she set up an interview date for the next week. I was interviewed by two people, I believe a supervisor and a district manager... I was asked about 7 questions, 4 of which were behavioral questions, and then asked if I had any questions for them. I was told I would hear back from the recruiter either way which I assumed meant a phone call but nope, got an e-mail about 2 weeks later saying they went with someone else. The interview was pretty straight forward and the interviewers were good about answering my questions. Overall, good experience besides the fact that I wasn't offered the job :(

The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Coca-Cola Company in June 2008.

Interview Details – apply online , they should call to have you come into a job fair, and at that job fair you are with a group of people and you sit in a room and wait for them to call your name for a one and one interview, if you happened to get a call back after that day you then come in for orientation and then you become an official employee

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Coca-Cola Company in August 2010.

Interview Details – Applied for a job on a Saturday, received a call from the HR rep on Monday. Did a very short phone interview. Asked basic questions, then told me the details of the job and pay rate. Invited me to a one on one with a manager at the local office.

1:1 was also very basic. Went over qualifications, asked like 3 questions, told me it'd be a few weeks. Never heard anything back. Shame, I had a good interview.

Interview Question – Give me an example of how your more productive than your fellow co-workers.   Answer Question

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Coca-Cola Company in December 2010.

Interview Details – I first received a phone call from the company a few days after I initially submitted my application. I was asked several situation questions and then was asked for a date that I could meet with the lead merchandiser. I had a one on one interview that lasted about 20 minutes. The interview consisted of simple questions that you can expect from any interview. I received a call a few days later with an offer for the position.

Interview Question – What would you do if a fellow employee was having difficulties in doing his/her job?   Answer Question
