    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    It was quite harsh, comprising coordinators from my country, Mexico and US. It was quite challenging because I would be ready for an entry level position, not a management one.

    Account Manager Relief Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Coca-Cola Company (Reading, PA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    I have 15 years experience actually giving interviews. Had interview set up days ahead by Coke. Received call they had to reschedule, interviewer had something come up. So at interview, interviewer quickly started belittling me and my resume. I am guessing she is a perfect person. Even if I knew early in the process, when I was the interviewing person, this candidate isn't the one, there still is no reason to be rude.

    Interview

    The interview process was draining. They do STAR interviews and you must interview twice. They will email you if you are hired however you can not discuss getting hired with any other employees it's confidential until they decided to announce it to the team . the interview process is strict you must know the company values and history. Dress very business professional or you will not get the job

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Coca-Cola Company (Atlanta, GA).

    Interview

    I've applied to several positions at Coca Cola, some of which I am overqualified for. Never once have I received a "not interested", "if your credential match what we are looking for" or even "I'm sorry, but that position has been filled." It makes you wonder is Coca Cola just a you gotta know someone or do they actually recruit outside of internal referrals........

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Coca-Cola Company (Atlanta, GA) in December 2009.

    Interview

    I went through multiple rigorous panel interviews where they used Targeted Selection to address specific skill competencies. Overall I did extremely well. They started with 19 candidates and I was the only candidate left at the end of the process. The hiring manager was fantastic. Very personable ane encouraging. So was the local HR manager. I was told repeatedly the job was mine and their challenge was to put together a compelling offer. At the very last second senior mgt decided to place an internal employee in the job. They never even told the hiring manager who is a VP. He was very embarrassed and of course I was out a good job opportunity.

    Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Saint Charles, MO

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at Coca-Cola Company (Saint Charles, MO) in February 2008.

    Interview

    Initial phone interview then a 1:2 interview. For the sales job I had to pitch a product in a scenerio. It involved pitching their current big unveiling, Fuze. They presented a challenge of a predominate Hispanic neighborhood grocery store that was hesitant to bring in new products. I had to study the fact sheet then recite if from memory in the pitch. They gave extremely strong one-after-the-other rebuttals and looked for confidence, high-energy, a don't quit attitude and strong product knowledge. Study the nutrition label and grab the drink out of the cooler in the room to use as a prop, they loved that. They hired a lot of part time MBA students so having that on your resume won't hurt.
    They are looking for hard core, cut-throat, confident (not cocky) professional sales people. They want extremely high energy and motivated sales people. Show them your confidence and professionalism for added points.

    Interview Questions

    • Rebuttals presented in sales scenerio after giving you 5 minutes to study the product fact sheet: Why do I want this product? What is my gross cost? What is my profit? What kind of discounts can you offer me? What kinds of promotions will you offer me? Why do you want to put this cooler in my store, I don't have the room. Pepsi just gave me this __. What about the nutrition information? I don't know... Will you take the cooler out in a month if it doesn't sell? Will you take back the product if I change my mind?   1 Answer

    This is the offer, take it or leave it.
