    Business Development Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Coca-Cola Enterprises, Inc. (Denver, CO) in July 2012.

    Interview

    So I landed this interview mostly because I know some people at the Coca Cola Sales office in Texas who pulled some strings for me in Denver. There was a recruiter who called me and set up an interview time, she kind of asked me some preliminary questions at first to see if I was at least moderately qualified for the job. The whole process happened really quickly for me but only because they needed someone quickly. I had applied to other positions in Coke before and hadn't heard back for months.

    The day after I was contacted (which unfortunate timing- was also on my birthday) they scheduled me for an interview in their sales office the next morning. A lot of prep work should be done for these interviews because they are looking for you to respond in the STAR format, aka, 1) present a situation or story 2) describe the action taken and 3) describe the results. The more numbers you can show in your answers the better, this is a sales job. The two ladies I spoke with for my interview were more than personable, they really sold the position to me after I was kind of unsure in the first place. The MDM role is technically an entry level role but it looks like they must have been looking for someone with really solid sales experience because I had a great interview and didn't get the position even after having an in with the company. You will know if you have been selected because they should call you and ask to do a background check on you and then later a drug test must be passed before you can be offered the full time position. Loved it, guess it wasn't the best fit for me at the time.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked me about my background and experience with Spanish as a language, the interview is pretty relaxed until they ask you four STAR questions, which I honestly don't remember what they asked me.   1 Answer

    Inside Sales Representative Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Coca-Cola Enterprises, Inc. (Tampa, FL) in April 2012.

    Interview

    The first time I applied I never received a response so I went to school to become a MAA and then worked at a Doctors office for a year. I was unhappy with the job with the job so I began putting in applications again and decided to reapply with Coca-Cola and within a week I received a call. So always remember, just because you don't get a response from the job you want does not mean you were not qualified enough for the job or keep you from trying again at a later date.

    Interview Questions

    • What was something you attempted to accomplish at work but failed? That is a difficult question to answer because it forces you to admit to a failure. It's definitely a good idea to think through such possible questions so that you have a good answer that may display a learning opportunity   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation. They told me what the starting pay was and I excepted.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Coca-Cola Enterprises, Inc. (Louisville, KY) in October 2011.

    Interview

    I received a phone call from the Manager to begin with . I was scheduled for an interview the same week. Since it was an Entry Level position, I was only asked questions from my resume and nothing technical in particular. Since I had previous similar background internship experience, I believe that made their job easier as they were willing to train the students on SAP. The Manager gathered feedback from the interviewers the same day and got back to me in the evening asking me to come for the final interview. During my final interview, I wasn't asked too many questions and was given a verbal offer. After I accepted the verbal offer, I got the official offer letter the same week. Basically I was hired in about 2 weeks and then they asked me to undergo the Drug Test and Background Check.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    I was able to negotiate because of my previous internship experience.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Coca-Cola Enterprises, Inc. in August 2011.

    Interview

    Very common interview process... "Tell me about a time you encountered x. What was your approach, what was the result?" Nothing mind blowing. Just be prepared with common conflict resolution scenarios you have encountered on your resume and be prepared to describe in detail. The "STAR" interview process. I would ask about common day to day responsibilities, weekend work, and what are the expectations if an account manager is unable to run their route, is it expected that DSM is going to run? My money says that you will be, on top of your day to day responsibilities.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about a time you had a conflict with a customer.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Ask for their salary range for the position before you disclose what you make. They will low ball you if you tell them first. There aren't huge salary increases once you come on board, so negotiate wisely and aggressively.
