    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Coca-Cola Company (Seattle, WA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Super nice folks. Made me feel very much at ease. Interview took about an hour. Pretty typical questions about past experience, and why I would want to work at Coke. Nothing out of the ordinary, but they do ask a lot of open ended questions where you need to use the STAR technique. Simulation/Task/Action/Report. Make sure you have plenty of stories

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Coca-Cola Company in November 2016.

    Interview

    If you've read interview reviews on here. It is exactly how they describe it.
    Phone interview- ask about your prior experience and how it would help in position you're applying for. Pretty straightforward. It went pretty easily for me. I had a lot of retail experience and was able to tie into what they were looking for.
    In person interview- 2 person interview ask you a lot of experience questions and how it relates to position. Have to answer in STAR format. Again, it wasn't very tough if you have experiences to draw on. I was able to answer everything and they seemed happy with my answers to the point where it felt they didn't want to keep asking the questions because they knew I'd have a good answer. Since they had to they asked.
    As far as the role play, one of the interviewers asked me in the middle of the interview to sell him an item he put in front of me to him. I did and they seemed happy with it.
    We talked a lot about why did I want to work for Coke and where do you see yourself moving up in the company.
    A lot of emphasis on promoting within and being an asset.

    Account Manager Relief Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Coca-Cola Company (Saint Charles, MO) in August 2016.

    Interview

    This was the fastest interview process of my life and I loved it! Applied for the job Friday night. Got a call on Monday morning for a brief phone screen and set up an in-person interview for the following morning. Was just offered the job today (2 days later) and I can start in 2 weeks after the background check and drug test.

    The interview was with two of the sales managers so it was a little intimidating at first, but they were very friendly and open so I loosened up a bit. Be sure to highlight any successes you've had in sales in your previous positions. We did a sales roleplay and they gave me a sheet describing the scenario and other important information. I was given 10 minutes to prepare and 10 minutes to "make the sale". Just be confident and outgoing and you should do fine. They both gave me feedback afterwards on what I did right and where I could improve.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked 4 behavioral questions (be SURE to use the STAR format - very important!) and had to roleplay selling coke products to a convenience store owner.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Coca-Cola Company (Livonia, MI).

    Interview

    Was scheduled for a 2 PM interview,showed up early only to be told I had to wait.40 minutes later out walks the guy I was interviewing with.Interviewed with 3 people with the STAR format.I thought it went well considering I've worked on the systems mentioned they used while in the military.One of the interviewers didn't say one word and almost looked like he was handicapped.Regardless I thought I did well considering I answered all the questions asked with a situation that was comparable to being in a production environment.The job description they gave didn't seem that difficult and it's almost like they want you to get up and leave the interview while describing working conditions.Was not offered a job and would recommend changing the way they conduct interviews.
