    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Coca-Cola Bottling Co. Consolidated (Atlanta, GA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    I had 1 phone interview with the internal recruiter, who was extremely helpful about understanding the position's roles and responsibilities I was selected for a second round interview. This consisted of a short (10- 20 minute) technical/ mock presentation on a random commodity I had no experience in. I was to develop a presentation, analysis and recommendation for a team of executives. After the presentation I had about 45 minutes of STAR questions, which are unique to Coca-cola. I had time to answer a few questions. The interview itself was fairly intimidating. The final interview was a few weeks later with another group of three people. This round was less formal, but also intense. After the interview I had lunch with a potential colleague.

    Interview Questions

    • STAR format questions. ie Tell me about a time where you faced a difficult situation and what did you do to resolve the problem. Prep was provided as a guide for answering such questions. The final round was more standard questions. Strengths/ weaknesses, long and short term goals, what do you bring to this position, etc.   Answer Question

    Delivery Merchandiser - Small Store Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Scottsboro, AL
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Coca-Cola Bottling Co. Consolidated (Scottsboro, AL) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Interview was set for 1:00 p.m. I arrived 15 minutes early, was told to wait until the conference room was available. around 1:13 the Supervisor doing the interview came and called me into the conference room where he introduced me to another manager. We spent the next few minutes just talking about the job and they really tried to make the point that it was a "HARD work" kinda job. The interview itself consisted of pre-generated question from the computer, For Example: Name a time that you were in a stressful situation and you had to act quickly, how did you handle the situation? and what could you have done better? After 30 minutes of that we talked some more for about 20 minutes we laughed and had a good conversation, felt good about it when I left. However I did not get a call and a few days after my interview the job posting that I applied for was updated on Indeed.com so I guess I did not get it.
