I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Frito-Lay in July 2013.
Interview Details –
Applied online via the Frito Lay Careers website. After a few days I received a call from their hiring coordinator. We scheduled an interview.
At the interview, he asked what I knew about Frito Lay.
We went over my application and he asked a few questions about my driving record.
He then described the aspects of the job, what the shift times would be, and the pay for the job.
Interview questions included:
How do you feel about working in the evenings, weekends, and holidays?
Would you be able to work nights, weekends, and holidays?
Can you give an example of working weekends and holidays from a previous job?
How many hours a week have you worked night and weekends in a previous job?
Are you able to lift 50 pounds with reasonable accommodations?
Are you able to stand, bend, lift, and do other physically taxing movements for long periods of time with reasonable accommodations?
How much are you looking to get paid for this position/how do you feel about the pay?
Why do you want to work here?
Do you have any questions for me?
He informed me he would be completing the hiring process that week. If I was selected I would have to submit to a comprehensive background check including a driving record report and a hair follicle drug test.

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Frito-Lay in July 2013.
Interview Details – The initial phone interview is like most initial contacts. The interviewer will verify the position, salary, hours to be worked, full time/part time status, benefits, etc. It is to make sure the applicant understands what they are really applying for. Also, the interviewer will ask about previous employment to get a sense if the applicant has any kind of experience dealing with the realities that is actually working for Frito Lay. If the phone interview goes well, they will ask you in for an inperson interview. This might be with one, two or three people at the same time. That was a little intimidating, but they were very nice. There goal is to hire a person to fill a need they have. They want nothing more than for you to be great! But, they will ask questions geared toward your work ethic and previous experience. If this interview goes well, they may offer you a position conditional upon passing a background check and drug screen.
Interview Question – Nothing was difficult. I would say that it was detailed because they take care in hiring the best people for the positions available. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – The salary and benefits at Merchandiser level was posted with the position. There appeared to be little to no room for negotiation.

Interview Question – What's your biggest strength Answer Question
I applied through college or university and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Frito-Lay in May 2013.
Interview Details – Applied through campus recruiting, interviewed on campus a few weeks later. Interview was behavioral with two interviewers. Questions were pretty basic and interviewers were friendly. Received word about 1 week later that I was not moving on to the next round. After asking for feedback, I was told that it would have been beneficial to me if I had attended the info session (which I had done), which makes me think they do not check their sign-ins.
Interview Question – Why Frito-Lay? Answer Question
I applied online and interviewed at Frito-Lay.
Interview Details – It has been five years since I went through this process and it has changed since then and I really can't remember the whole process. The only thing I can say was that it was simple and my interview was pleasant.
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 6 months - interviewed at Frito-Lay.
Interview Details – Applications are only accepted via computer/online during a very limited time. There is an initial interview and "Select Test." There is a drug test and background check that must be passed before being hired. The drug test is a hair test. They take the applicants into the production plant and let them try packing to get a feel and sight of what they'll be doing.
Interview Question – It's been too many years since I did a packer interview so I don't remember the questions but they were "basic" interview questions. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – There is no negotiation. It is what it is. Everyone starts at the same pay rate and benefits and everyone progresses at the same rate. There is no performance bonus.
I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Frito-Lay.
Interview Details – Applied online and was called a few days later. FIrst was a screening interview, followed by a day in the field with a sales rep, then two more interviews. All the interviews were basic straight forward. No question were very difficult.
Interview Question – None. Why Frito Lay? Answer Question
I applied through college or university - interviewed at Frito-Lay in April 2013.
Interview Details –
Round robin style of interview with about 6 different types of people for about 45 min each, all of whom are very nice. Mostly behavioral questions, nothing technical.
I believe the reason I did not get offered the position was I did not act as enthusiastic as others when interviewing about what the position entailed.
Factory tour, and pizza for lunch with about 5 other people who were also doing interviews.
