    Interview

    Three rounds of interviews. First interview was easy. Two supervisors came to campus and asked basic questions. The second round is more difficult. The head of the plant asks you questions and can be more intimidating. However, they are not mean, they just want to know your experiences.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at PepsiCo.

    Interview

    The interview was very organized with standard questions that you would expect from an interview. The interviewers were new staff to Pepsico, and seemed very easy to relate to. Walking in they both greeted, and shook my hand. We exchanged how our days were going. The interview lasted roughly 30 min, and was very smooth/ standard. After they asked standard questions then you had the opportunity to ask them about their experiences at Pepsico.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at PepsiCo in April 2015.

    Interview

    I applied in early March 2015. I was called for an interview in early April 2015. I had an interview with 3 teams of 2 people each, tour of the facility, and then the opportunity to ask questions. At the end of the interview, I was told that I will hear back in 7-14 days. On the 14th day, I was called by one of the interviewers. I was told that due to internal candidates, they are unsure of which position(s) may be available to external candidates (like myself). They are also unsure of when any decisions will be made. They told me that I will hear back within 2 weeks. It's a VERY long time to wait!

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at PepsiCo (College Park, MD).

    Interview

    It was a very standard interview. The questions were all behavioral. They asked me what I was most proud of. They also asked me about leadership experience that i have had in the past. Nothing unexpected or surprising from the interviewer. She seemed uninterested and kept commenting on the temperature of the room. I attribute it to her long day of interviewing college students.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at PepsiCo (Norfolk, VA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Two individuals from management led the interview - it was not conducted by human resources. It was a three part interview: review of job description, standard situational questions as read off a packet from the HR department, question and answer period. The interview went great. They asked me for my salary requirements at the end of the interview, at which point they told me someone would contact me in two to three weeks. It has been almost two months and I have yet to hear back from them.
