    Interview Details

    The job interview process can be lengthy. Being interviewed once and getting a job offer is typically a thing of the past. Today, many companies have an involved interview process starting with screening interviews, followed by in-person interviews, second interviews and even third interviews.

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult and unexpected question was a bunch of What if" and "An example of when..." kind of behavioral questions. I should have prepared these, I had not and really was stumped and ended up giving them real examples and expressed my honest opinions (not a good idea esp if you are opinionated like me).   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at PepsiCo in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied on-line through their site. A few days later received an email about going on-line and scheduling a phone interview. First available phone interview was for a week later. Phone interview was basically a lady going over pay, hours, and how many days I will be working. Which was starting at 13 per hour, starting at 6AM and working 6 days a week. At end of phone interview she schedule me for a face to face interview 2 days later. The face to face was great. He asked be customer service questions like how did I go above and beyond for customer, describe a stressful situation, and we also went over previous work history. He describe a little bit about the job and said it was union and that I would not have to work very many Saturdays. You receive commission per case so he said it averages about 175-200 dollars per day that you would be making. The interviewer was great and made me feel very comfortable and not nervous at all. Now just waiting to see if they are going to offer me employment. He said I had a good interview and that he did have more ppl scheduled to interview.

    Interview Details

    The initial interview was two back-to-back 45 minute interviews, on-campus, both of which were behavioral. The interviews were very similar to each other, and were focused on my questions about the position and company. It was very important that I have lots of specific questions.

    Interview Questions
    • There were very few direct questions-- the interviews were very conversational, getting-to-know-you, and I drove most of the interview with questions.   Answer Question
