I need to download a PDF behind a log-in page on a scheduled basis.

Manually, the process is:

  1. Log in
  2. Select drop-down
  3. Download PDF

Is there any way to automate this process on a Mac?

    There are better people than me to answer Mac questions, so I wont try to answer. However, this just sounds like a business process to me. Sure there are ways to automate it, but it feels like a change in procedure would be a better choice. Talk to the people who provide the PDF, be it your IT dept or vendor and ask them if there is a way to streamline the process.

There sure is a way, automator is a application native to Mac which can "automate" the process for you.

I have done this before but cant seem to find the link i used, however it is pretty stragiht forward.
