Application Details

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

Interview Details

1: Phone Interview
2:In person interview with 2 supervisors
3:Call offering you the job (This is when you need to bargain if you have experience that could be related to previous jobs and probably your only chance to get your wage up to a better amount)

Interview was pretty chill, just relax and answer the questions, maybe do a little research the night before and a little mental prep to be calm right before.

    Interview Details

    I was hired very quickly because they experience so much turnover that they take anyone who expresses even the slightest interest in working there. They will explain that job to you in a way that makes it seem not as bad as it really is, but trust me, its bad.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Coca-Cola Company in August 2011.

    Interview Details

    I applied online on monster.com. A talent acquisition employee called me the next day and asked if a few basic questions about my interest. He then asked to set up a phone interview on the next day. The next day he called and asked a series of previous work experience and "what if" scenario questions that took about 10-15min. He then told me he would get in touch with the manager to set up an interview. He called be back a could days later and set an interview for another week in advance. I went to the one on one interview with the manager and was asked a similar series of questions that again took about 15min. I asked a couple questions and he came up with a couple more that took about another 10min. He offered me the job on the spot pending my background check and drug test results. I went and took the drug test that day paid for by them and started working a few days later.

    Negotiation Details
    I am not the best negotiator. I like to know what I'm getting into so unfortunately I don't usually push for more. The hours were set and could not be negotiated since you have to fit in with the other merchandisers schedules. The pay may be slightly argued but I doubt there would be much results. I asked for a starting pay of $12 and was told that was exactly what the starting pay was so I accepted it.

    I applied online and was contacted in about two weeks for an in person interview. I went in the next week for the interview with a panel of three different account managers.

    Fairly simple interview if you have any previous grocery retail experience. Expectations are pretty straight forward, interviewers are open to questions and clear about job description and requirements. Nothing spectacular. A fairly clean driving record is required as well.
