    Very complete. Met with several individuals at a plant site and at a bottling location. Great interview experience.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Pepsi Bottling.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed 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 Questions
    • 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
