    Financial Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at PepsiCo in March 2010.

    Interview

    I was supposed to have a 30 minute phone interview with a woman from HR but instead she called late, had me on the phone for only 12 minutes and could not answer a single question about the job. Not surprisingly, it was very difficult to get through an interview about a job the person has no clue about.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at PepsiCo in March 2010.

    Interview

    the interview process was rigorous and hard. Before you actually are interviewed by a set of 4 individuals...you are given a plant tour and an overview of the business. After you are interviewed they give you lunch, and then if you are qualified enough, they will call you back for a second round

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at PepsiCo in May 2010.

    Interview

    Company usually hires during March. Interview process is fairly quick. My biggest advice is to talk more about the results you have achieved in your last company, role, organization. PepsiCo is VERY result oriented. They don't care about your job description, they care about the results you can bring to the table and how you can impact the company.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    No, no negotiation at all.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at PepsiCo.

    Interview

    Very extensive and difficult process. You will have an initial on campus interview then your second round will consist of 5 interviews and a dinner. Try to be as social and professional as possible because you are interviewing for a sales position. You will have a sample sales scenario, a resume review, a case study, and two interviews (interviews are behavioral). Try to be as like-able as possible.

    Interview Questions

    • Sales Scenario is where most people lose, do your research and try to be as innovative as possible!   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No Negotiation, they will try to sale you on your ability to move up in 6 months to a year (we'll see)

    Engineering Intern Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at PepsiCo (Phoenix, AZ) in April 2012.

    Interview

    The position was for a summer internship at a Gatorade bottling facility. I initially met the recruiter at a university career fair. The first interview was scheduled for the next day on campus. It lasted 30 minutes and was with two recruiters. All questions were behavior based. I was contacted via email in about a week to offer me a second interview that would be later that week. The second interview was broken into three parts. The first part was a presentation style interview. It was with the 'Leadership Team' which consisted of seven people higher up in the company with various positions. Also present were two other job candidates that had to present after me. This was the first time I had to interview with so many people and it was a little awkward having people competing for the same position watching me. I was not told this was part of the interview process, but in all fairness, I did not ask. I was told what topics I should focus on while introducing myself. My resume was projected onto a screen behind me and I was asked to describe myself and why I thought I would be a good fit for the position. The leadership team then asked me questions stemming from my presentation. I then sat through the presentations of the other two candidates. This portion lasted approximately one hour. The second part was a sit down interview with just myself and two Pepsi employees. All questions were behavior based. This portion lasted 30 minutes. The third part was a tour of the bottling facility where we had the opportunity to see the plant in action and ask questions. In all, I was on site for about five hours. I was emailed in about two weeks to let me know that I had not been selected for the position.

    District Sales Leader Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at PepsiCo (Harrisburg, PA) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Short and to the point - basically it all depends on who you are and who you know as one of the present managers did mention its not what you know but what they think that you know. Seems like they already know who that want in the different slots and they simply go through the process to satisfy requirements.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at PepsiCo in February 2012.

    Interview

    It is long and tedious. They could have at least given me some free junk food to eat during the interview. I should have stayed home and slept in. It would have been more productive. The interview took a very long long long long long time.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    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.
