Quality Control Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Seattle, WA

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

Interview Details – Waited for 15 minutes for the plant manager and quality manager to show up. Interview went well, with fewer questions asked of me than I would expect. Went through the responsibilities of the quality personnel, which, to my surprise, was basically production rather than quality control. Took a tour of the plant.

Interview Question – Asked if I would be OK with being required to join a union.   View Answer
