    Cold Drink Manager Interview

    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.

    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Coca-Cola Company (Atlanta, GA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Comes processes are intense, laborious and take at least three months to complete. Talent acquisition mostly are contract employees, not associates of the company.

    They do panel interviews that make one feel very uncomfortable, could be two-three people firing questions at you while you sit across from them.

    Given their lawsuit in 2000, their practices changed which has added a whole level of complexity to the interviewees and pool of candidates.

    If someone internally is posting (ask if there is an internal candidate) most likely they have. Even slated for the job or have done the job or been under a reorganization. It is very difficult to come in externally. Due to the various personalities on interview panels, it can be quite a difficult format to prepare for.

    Interview Questions

    • Star (situation task action result ) and you must answer in this format as you are scored based not only on content but that you addressed each point

      Tell me a time you disagreed with your superior and what was the end result?

    Reasons for Declining

    Coke is not well in the market and I have come across so many people that were laid off or restructured, morale is awful and change management is more like a dictatorship. The fact is Coke does not have the benefits or the credit that once had in years past. Too many changes, poor decisions especially in higher ranking female leaders.

    Account Manager Relief Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Reading, PA

    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........

    Sales Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    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.
