    Interview

    Interview was a panel. Nice people. Be prepared to answer all the standard behavioral questions. Hardest part of something … tell me about yourself … time you worked in a team, etc.

    Also, should have knowledge of brands and advertisement campaigns you've particularly liked or disliked going into the interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at PepsiCo in February 2015.

    Interview

    I applied through my university and was invited to interview on campus after about 2 weeks. The process consisted of two back-to-back interviews, with two interviewers in each. The first one was situational with some mini marketing cases. The second was behavioral and involved many in-depth questions about your personal experiences and skills. For the behavioral part, make sure you have many anecdotes to illustrate your skills and the way you approach challenges. The interviewers themselves were extremely nice and helpful.

    Interview Questions

    • What is your current favorite brand of all time? Why?
      What is your favorite PepsiCo brand? Why?
      How would you convince a lifelong Coke-drinker to switch over to Pepsi?

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at PepsiCo.

    Interview

    I interviewed for an internship position in manufacturing. I applied through campus career services and got accepted for a first round interview. The interview was a 2:1, 30 minute session with two senior management guys. They were very friendly and looked interested in what I had to say. Overall, the difficulty of the interview was normal. 3-4 traditional questions and 5 behavioural questions, nothing out of the ordinary. For every question the interviewers gave me some context/background to help me out.

    Some questions I remember are:
    -Tell us about a time when you worked in a team and you had to step up as the leader.
    -Tell us about a conflict you faced as a team, and how you helped to solve it.
    -How would you manage a team in a manufacturing plant?
    -Walk us through your weekly schedule.
    -What are your hobbies?
    -Tell us about yourself.

    I got invited to a second on-site interview, but I had to respectfully decline due to personal reasons.
