    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Coca-Cola Company (Bakersfield, CA).

    Interview

    I applied online and within the same week, I got an email to schedule a phone interview with someone from Human Resources. The lady from HR was really nice and knowledgeable. She liked me and immediately scheduled me for an in-person interview.

    I went to my interview about a week after my initial phone interview and it was a mess. I arrived 15 minutes before my scheduled time and ended up waiting about 45 minutes after my original scheduled time.

    I interviewed with 2 merchandiser supervisors and they hardly knew what they were talking about. It seemed like they had just started their job that same day. They were not friendly at all and not very welcoming. It seemed like I was burden to them for showing up to do my interview.

    After the interview I stood up and went to shake their hands and only one of them shook my hand and the other one didn't even stand up, say thank you to even look my way.

    I have been through a few interviews and this was definitely the worst one I have been apart of.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Coca-Cola Company (Modesto, CA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    The interview was very simple and comfortable. I met with three people and they were all friendly and professional. They gave a more detailed description of the job and the district it would be covering than the recruiter I had a phone interview with the week before. They also shared their experiences as far as moving up within the company and dealing with transfers.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Coca-Cola Company (Van Buren Township, MI) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Simple sit down, they offer a coke. Very nice people. Employee referrals can go a long way to getting hired easily. They usually decide they want to hire you in the first 10 seconds. Then, they go on with formalities and how the rest of the hiring process will work.

    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Coca-Cola Company in June 2016.

    Interview

    I applied for part time merchandiser through workopolis website. I got an email couple days later to have a phone interview. After the phone interview has done, the recruiter moved forward and arranged a f2f interview with the manager on June 1st. I was set up at 11a.m. The interview locates at loblaw. I was early 20 mins. I phoned the manager and wanted to make sure it was the right place. The manager said there was another girl which is late and wanted me to wait. I was gonna shop around but I saw they have stairs on the 2nd floor. I was panicking so I decided to sit and have a rest. All of a sudden, I saw a guy in red. He looked at me and I looked at him as well. He called my name and I said I could wait for him but he said as long I am here, we could start early. The manager is very easy going and make the whole interview more comfortable. He is the first manager ever going through each single detail on my resume. My previous managers just went through my education most likely my work experience. He is actually went through everything. He noticed that I am multi-lingual. He really likes it and mentioned it could be a huge asset for the coke company. The whole interview went very well and started with an ice breaking question, what is ur favorite product? The whole process followed reviewing material-the 5 models. He chose 3 of them to let me answer. After the interview, I waited until for a week and sent the recruiter the email to follow up. He said the manager was reaching other people regarding to a specific role the manager feels I am good for it and asked me to wait for another week. On the coming Tuesday, I got a phone call said they were offering me the position and customised a little bit the position for me. And I am very excited to start the end of month. By the way the background check only cost half a day. Hopefully I could do well.
