    Merchandiser Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. 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.
