    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at PepsiCo in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    I received a call after one week of sending my resume. Human resources employee contacted me. The interview was by phone and started a little late of the hour we agreed. It was really hard because you can’t see the interviewer face and expressions, but he was nice and willing to repeat if I didn’t understand something.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at PepsiCo.

    Interview Details

    First met with members of Pepsi at a campus career fair. Able to score an interview a week later. After the initial interview, I did not hear anything for a month regarding a possible follow up interview. I eventually did hear back and was scheduled for a plant visit from 9-12 on a Wednesday. Very typical in nature. Questions are what you have grown to expect from an interview situation.

    District Sales Leader Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at PepsiCo in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    Upcoming college graduates applying for this position--unless you have an extremely impressive resume, it's not worth the shot. However, it was a good experience but a VERY LONG process and in my opinion, not worth.

    First Interview: An HR recruiter immediately contacted me and we had a very easy phone interview.

    Next Step: I had to complete a tedious assessment test online. If your results came out good, you made it to the second interview.

    Second Interview: Had a conference call with two HR reps and they asked me a ton of questions about my leadership. They seemed more interested in my leadership skills than my sales experience. They also asked me a lot of questions about myself.

    Third Interview: Put me up in a hotel and flew me in for my third interview. I met with an RSR and went out on a route at 5:30am. Then met up with DSL leaders and had the opportunity to ask them questions. Then I had an interview with the Zone Sales Leader.

    Final Interview: Video conference with the Regional VP. After the long process they had strung me along as if I would get the job. But when I spoke with the Regional VP he was unimpressed that I had no internships. The interview pretty much ended after he asked me about internships. Then he told me there were several other candidates they are looking at and he would get back to me. It's been two weeks and I still haven't heard from them. I'm assuming I didn't get the job.

    Interview Questions
    • Questions were straight forward. Nothing surprising. They asked a lot about conflicts you've had in the workplace and how you addressed them.   Answer Question

    Merchandiser Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tampa, FL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tampa, FL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at PepsiCo in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    First you fill out the application and then wait for an email. The majority of the process is through email so make sure you're checking it. The first step is usually a kind of quiz and survey with basic questions with common scenarios and adding and subtracting math. Then what follows is usually a phone interview if all goes well. The Phone interview is scenario questions also and the face to face interview is very similar style as the phone interview. Just be honest be truthful and use whatever experience you have in the past to answer them. The process took a total of a month or a little over a month.
