The entire process is long but worth it. Background checks will take a while. However the people involved in the process are absolutely wonderful.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at PepsiCo (Dallas, TX) in October 2012.

    Interview

    Applied through campus recruiting, interviewed on campus a few weeks later. Interview was behavioral with two interviewers. Questions were pretty basic and interviewers were friendly. Received word about 1 week later that I was not moving on to the next round. After asking for feedback, I was told that it would have been beneficial to me if I had attended the info session (which I had done), which makes me think they do not check their sign-ins.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at PepsiCo (Chicago, IL) in December 2011.

    Interview

    My interview was setup through a recruiting firm, but it was conducted by the department head and (essentially) the assistant department head.. After going through my job history and background, basic questions were asked (nothing out of the ordinary). About 2 days later, the recruiting firm called asking me if I would accept the position.

    Interview Questions

    • The interview questions were basic and to the point about my background, work experience, etc, but varied and in no perceived logical order. I later learned that the questioning was done intentionally to see if I was capable of thinking quickly on my feet and for adaptability.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at PepsiCo (New Rochelle, NY) in May 2010.

    Interview

    First had a very basic phone interview to ensure interest in the company and detail what I was looking for in terms of a job there.

    Then they called me in for a day- Had 3 interviews with different employees of the company, one that included HR. Each interview was a half-hour and all pretty basic. Mostly behavioral questions and a lot of resume picking. Make sure you have good examples for times you worked well with a team, etc. Nothing technical really, aside from making sure I knew Excel.

    The people were very nice and treated all of the job applicants with respect, as far as I could see. Company culture seemed laid back, easy-going, and friendly.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at PepsiCo in July 2012.

    Interview

    Applied online and heard from a corporate recruiter contractor out of the blue.

    Well organized set up of the interview by the contractors, although they didn't have much information about the role or the people I'd be working with.

    Day of the interivew was good. Meet with the financial team and discussed goals for the company. For the most part, it was a standard interview.

    The only negative was the vibe of the place. PepsiCo is consolidating and streamlining operations. With that comes reorganization and stress, and much of the staff I met with were stressed out and literally looking over their shoulder with regards to the company.

    While I was ultimately turned down, I'm not sure if I would have been comfortable working in that type of environment.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at PepsiCo in March 2012.

    Interview

    I was first contacted by a senior HR manager through LinkedIn. I was looking to make a move from my current role as a CPA to a financial analyst role. Had a phone interview with HR where they basically described the position that was open and shortly thereafter I scheduled the office visit.

    The live interview process consisted of meeting one-on-one with a senior manager, a couple directors and HR. I also was required to prepare a 20 minute powerpoint presentation outlining my background, skills, goals, etc., which I presented to about 8 people (including those who interviewed me).

    Basic questions, mostly behavioral ("tell me about a time when you encountered a difficult personality at work" type). Overall it was a smooth interview process.
