It took about a month going through the process from initial internet contact to making it to the plant for an interview. Since they needed to fill the position, the interview was quick & dirty with a position manager.

Very complete. Met with several individuals at a plant site and at a bottling location. Great interview experience. They were able to show what HR professionals do at both their corporate and their bottling locations and have a commitment to the education of their professionals in their business.

I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at Pepsi Bottling.
I applied through my university website. An HR representative came to campus for the first round of interviews. Very standard, basic first round interview. We went over my resume, work experience, involvement on campus, etc. As soon as the interview was over, she invited me to the next round which took place at the Pepsi plant in Chicago.
There I went through a series of two difference interviews - one with a sales operations manager and one with the HR director. I was required to give a 15-minute sales pitch (they provided me with an outline the night before). The whole process lasted about 3 hours.
- Why do you want to work for Pepsi? Answer Question

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks – interviewed at Pepsi Bottling (Tulsa, OK).
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.
- 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
Hourly position not negotiable
