HR Manager Interview

Application Details

The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at PepsiCo in July 2010.

Interview Details

My first communication with the company was very positive and inspiring. I was almost thinking that what they were telling me may not be true about the upbeat and innovative "culture" of such a large company. It was very obvious from the moment my on-site interview began that the initial sales pitch I was hearing from the recruiters was an honest reflection of how the teams were operating.

My interview process consisted of 3 interviews of which one was on the phone.

The people interviewing me seemed to be as concerned about my thoughts of fitting is as they were my qualifications for the job. This was really a big decision factor for me because I felt like they were looking at me as a potential team member rather than just another hire.

The interview wasn't terribly difficult but did consist of some tough questions that forced me to commit to responses and share my experiences in a way that I was very accountable to decisions and actions taken in the past on projects. While I thought this was tough initially, after 7 months with the company I can appreciate the approach as it reflects accurately the level of independence and accountability is allowed the management teams within the company.
