    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at PepsiCo.

    Interview Details

    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 Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at PepsiCo.

    Interview Details

    I met them at a career fair. I then was invited to an interview the next day. The questions were mostly behavioral - describe a time when there was this type of challenge, or when you faced a group problem. Then they told me to come down to the plant to interview. They put me up in a hotel and the next day I took a tour of the plant and started my interviews. I had 3 2:1 interviews, each one took about an hour.

    I applied for the position through my college's career site. In about a week, I received an invitation to apply for an on-campus interview, which lasted for 30 minutes.

    RSA/RSR Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at PepsiCo.

    Interview Details

    You have to apply online at the website. You start out as a merchandiser or an RSA which is basically someone who covers vacations or open routes. RSA position can be very tough because you are constantly running different route types, schedules and hours but when you get your own route the pay is very, very good for what you do. When you get your own route you become an RSR.

    Interview Questions
    • There is about 6 structured questions that they ask first then there's a more open conversational part of the interview that explains the job in more detail. They also do a "route ride" as part of the interview process which allows you to see what an RSA or RSR Does each day which is nice.   Answer Question

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at PepsiCo.

    Interview Details

    Contacted by an HR coordinator for an initial interview, although what surprised me was that he didn't email or leave a message to schedule the phone screen. I had to do it on the spot.

    Warehouse Loader Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Columbia, MD

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at PepsiCo in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    Pepsico definitely judges the book by it's cover, they know who they will hire by just looking at them. When I went there, the interviewer did not take any notes, and he tried acting as if the technology they had was too advanced for me or something. I mean even if you are not going to hiring someone don't be a jerk about it. AT THE END OF THE INTERVIEW HE SAID "GOOD LUCK WITH YOU LIFE" the guy was a rude as hell. It's pathetic, I will never buy a pepsi product again based on this experience.

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

    Interview Details

    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.
