    Warehouse Loader Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Eugene, OR
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Eugene, OR
    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at PepsiCo in March 2011.

    Interview Details

    I had about 2-3 interviews where I had met various people throughout the front office. Plenty of questions about my hobbies because I think one of the main factors they were looking for was that I would fit in with the people I was working with. A lot of time is spent in the warehouse so I think they wanted to make sure they put the right people together. Other things that they looked for was highly motivated individuals because it is a warehouse position often people lose motivation as time goes on. So being someone young and money motivated was what they look for in this particular position.

    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at PepsiCo in July 2012.

    Interview Details

    I was interviewed for about 4 hours. They brought us all in as a group and gave us an Interview Schedule. I was interviewed by five members of the LT and BUL Group. So, essentially five independent interviews. The questions were the exact same in every interview. I was then interviewed by the DM by phone after it was announced that I was head to head with another candidate.

    I was given the offer and asked for 3 days to think about the acceptance, which they were very hesitant to allow.

    Negotiation Details
    There was little negotiation. I told them what my current offer was and that I was flexible. They told me later what they decided in the

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 days - interviewed at PepsiCo in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    Interview consisted of two separate rooms with 3 experienced managers in each room. First room gave examples of problem and how you would solve them. They really wanted to see how the interviewee could think on their feet. Second room was more about the resume and elevator speeches. Definitely the toughest interview I went through.

    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
