    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at PepsiCo (Chicago, IL) in October 2014.

    Interview

    It was a lengthy interview process. After meeting with the PepsiCo Warehouse Sales Northwest team, there were two on campus interviews. If you were selected for final round interviews, PepsiCo flew candidates out to Chicago for four rounds of interviews. Each interview lasted about 30 minutes and each interviewer asked 3-5 questions.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at PepsiCo (Chicago, IL) in May 2014.

    Interview

    Except for a long delay between the face to face interview and the offer, the process went well. I applied on the company website after seeing it on LinkedIn. I was contacted within a week about setting up a phone interview. From there, I was brought in just a few weeks later. Then due to other interviewing internal candidates and managers traveling, the offer was delayed by 4 - 5 weeks. There wasn't much communication in that time. I called several times a week to seek an update.

    Interview Questions

    • No difficult questions were asked. Everything was reasonable.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiating on the salary. I did get an extra week of vacation

    Interview

    Applied online and received a phone call to come in for an interview. Scheduled for an interview the following week. I was told i will be interviewing with 5 people. I spent around half an hour with each interviewer. Questions weren't particular challenging, mostly talked about my previous work experiences and what i did. They also explained their positions and what they did for the company. It seemed i would be working with them so they were trying to figure out if i was a great fit. Overall the interview process was great. Not really any technical questions, but just understanding if i knew the basics.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at PepsiCo (Barrington, IL) in November 2013.

    Interview

    The interview process was pretty standard except for I had lunch with the entire team. This was an informal way for them to ask me additional questions. Since Pepsi has many offices in North America I spoke with multiple people, but not all were in person as some were in other locations.

    A lengthy interview process! Six phone interviews and a half day of in person interviews were required for the role I am currently in. Never interviewed with my current manager though

    Very receptive. They ask for what your salary preference is up front so be sure to be truthful about what you want in the beginning as it will be difficult to back pedal afterwards

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at PepsiCo (Chicago, IL) in August 2013.

    Interview

    I had 4 phone interviews, one with the recruiter and 3 with my managers and a director on the team. They all were fairly straightforward and everyone was very open to answering my questions. There were large gaps of time before I heard anything after some of the interviews, but I was told that was because they were trying to figure out where to place me on the team. I went in for 1 office interview and met with two people. I was offered the position the next week.
