    Supply Chain Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    The interview consisted of only a few questions that were clearly provided by HR. The questions focused on leadership, experience, and analysis. The interviewer even tells you what each question is looking for and the questions have nothing to do with your education or experience in the relevant area. The interviewer also is not someone who works in the supply chain department and is generally unfamiliar with the tasks you would be assigned in the role.

    I did mine over Skype and it was pretty straight forward. Make sure you know Pepsi Products! It was overall a good experience as an interview and with the company. They read your resume so prepared to be questioned on it! The interview took about 10 minutes but it felt like it went by fast.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at PepsiCo.

    Interview Details

    I had a 3 interviews, a driving record check, and drug test before being hired. My First interview was with both local District managers. The questions were very basic and i wasn't caught off guard by anything. The second interview was with a HR person and 2 a different district manager and was similar to the first. it wasn't difficult they were very nice and was a relaxed interview. The last was with the regional manager, and was much more difficult. This was probably due to my nerves more than anything, because I knew it was the final interview and because he was higher up the food chain.

    Interview Questions
    • Very basic and by the book interviews. They are really pushing to make sure you understand the job and are comfortable with it through out each interview. demonstrate that and you are ahead of the game.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    no negotiation, the job position or RSR has a base pay and a variable commission depending on route type.

    Applied on-line through their site. A few days later received an email about going on-line and scheduling a phone interview. First available phone interview was for a week later. Phone interview was basically a lady going over pay, hours, and how many days I will be working. Which was starting at 13 per hour, starting at 6AM and working 6 days a week. At end of phone interview she schedule me for a face to face interview 2 days later. The face to face was great. He asked be customer service questions like how did I go above and beyond for customer, describe a stressful situation, and we also went over previous work history. He describe a little bit about the job and said it was union and that I would not have to work very many Saturdays. You receive commission per case so he said it averages about 175-200 dollars per day that you would be making. The interviewer was great and made me feel very comfortable and not nervous at all. Now just waiting to see if they are going to offer me employment. He said I had a good interview and that he did have more ppl scheduled to interview.
