    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at PepsiCo (Phoenix, AZ).

    Interview

    Applied online and received a email two weeks later to set up a phone interview. During the phone interview they ask basic questions pertaining to customer service. After the phone interview I was sent a email to do a face to face interview a week later. Face to face was a physical assessment, pulling pallets of Pepsi products and building a display following a plan o gram. After the physical assessment you do a quick interview with the hiring manager. Just so you know, you are not the only one interviewing, I did it with six other people. The interview with the hiring manager at the end is just a one on one(your time to shine). Week later received a offer via email. Background check and drug test, which is a hair test so be prepared;)
