Route Sales Representative Interview

Route Sales Representative
Miami, FL

I applied online and the process took 6 weeks - interviewed at PepsiCo in March 2009.

Interview Details – Applied online. Got call a month later for an interview with HR that took a half hour involving a small sales role play. Did a ride along with another RSR a week later. Another week later had an interview with two District Sales Leaders which was laid back. Hired a month later.

Interview Question – All questions were standard questions. Nothing out of the ordinary. Just get ready to do a sales role play where you are selling a product to a manager.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation. I knew what I would be getting.

Very Easy Interview

Route Sales Representative Interview

Route Sales Representative

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 days - interviewed at PepsiCo.

Interview Details – Applied via phone screening; one phone interview and one face to face interview each lasting no more than 10 minutes each. This was prior to new hiring process, currently you will not even be considered for an interview unless you have a college degree. If location is in a bind for RSR's, they will forgo this requirement and take what they can get. As a result, you have some RSR's that are over qualified for a route position working alongside people who have no aptitude for route sales.

Interview Question – Do you have a problem working holidays?
Do you think you can do the job?

I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at PepsiCo in November 2009.

Interview Details – Situational questions.... Name a time when you dealt with an unhappy customer. How did you handle the situation?..... A time when you disagreed with your superior.....etc. (Google situational interview questions... This will prepare you)

Interview Question – What is your biggest weakness? This is a trap question. Have an answer prepared that doesn't diminish your qualities   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation. You will be paid the set rate by the company. All reps are paid the same regardless of seniority. The only benefit to seniority is the ability to choose a more desirable route based on either money, hours, or days off.
