Merchandiser Interview

Merchandiser
Tulsa, OK

I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Pepsi Bottling.

Interview Details – Getting hired at Pepsi is a time consuming process. It takes a few weeks, as there is a phone interview then an in person interview. It seems like people that the managers already know in the industry can get on faster than people hired "off the street". It is a hard job as it seems they hire 2 or 3 people at a time but they don't last. I had a couple get hired the same time as me and never saw them after orientation.

Interview Question – Not really anything too difficult. You take some tests during the application process but they shouldn't be to difficult for people of average intelligence.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Hourly position not negotiable

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Pepsi Bottling in May 2013.
