    Interview

    Applied on line , went through the process of the job session where hiring manager explains job description , salary, and interview process. Did the drive along first then a 20-30 minute interview five days later. Asked about my background experience ,knowledge, and skills. Was told after interview that I may get a call a week later if they find interest in me or a refusal letter. Two hour later I got a call to meet with the district sales manager in 5 days. Don't know if this is a good sign but will be ready for the next step . Best is to practice and research company you are looking for and memorize best answers of questions they may throw at you.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at PepsiCo (College Park, MD).

    Interview

    It was a very standard interview. The questions were all behavioral. They asked me what I was most proud of. They also asked me about leadership experience that i have had in the past. Nothing unexpected or surprising from the interviewer. She seemed uninterested and kept commenting on the temperature of the room. I attribute it to her long day of interviewing college students.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at PepsiCo.

    Interview

    Met recruiters at campus career fair. The next step was an online assessment which gave you scenarios in which you would have to choose what actions you would take. After passing the assessment, I was called back for an interview. My first interview was a Standard Behavioral interview over the phone. It lasted about 30 minutes. The woman who interviewed me was very friendly and didn't ask any out of the box questions.

    I applied online – interviewed at PepsiCo.

    Interview

    I first had a phone interview with someone from HR in another location. They were screening applicants and narrowed it down to a handful that would interview in person at the job location. I arrived for my interview on time at 11:00am. My interviewer had left the building thinking it was not until 1:00. When he finally showed up, I barely got a word in. Maybe 5 sentences in the entire 2 hours I was there...I wish I was exaggerating. I really have no idea how he made an informed decision in offering me this job, there is no way he could have determined anything from what I was allowed to say. No references were asked for.

    Interview Questions

    • There weren't any. I was literally talked at for 2 hours, given very little chance to say anything on my own.   Answer Question

The interview was 30 minutes they asked about 5-6 questions and wrote down the jists of my responses on their papers. Then asked me if I had any questions. It was a simple and more laid back interview. Still in the process, have neither been extended and offer or rejected at this time.
