    The process took about three weeks. Met with an HR intern at a career fair.

Started with introductions and then just a couple of behavioral interview questions. Then she called next week to call me in for the second phase which included a presentation, site tour and interviews with three business unit leaders. Interviews were semi formal. HR called a few days later to tell me I wasn't the perfect match.

    Warehouse Loader Interview

    Anonymous Employee in South Phoenix, AZ
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at PepsiCo (South Phoenix, AZ) in July 2015.

    Interview

    First I had the phone interview and it went smooth, they sent out an email letting me know when my second interview was. They said wear pants and tennis shoes. Let me tell you how unethical that is. In phoenix its at least a buck o five everyday. The hands on activity was outside and they didn't warn you about staying hydrated because no one knew it would be outside. Since the hands on activity is 90% of the interview process if you slow down because you are over heating in this Arizona weather you don't get the job. I'm not from Arizona so I felt like they should have told me. Bad experience didn't get it.

    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Altoona, PA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at PepsiCo (Altoona, PA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    I had a face to face interview with a team of three employees. I answered numerous questions and they told me that I would hear back from them sometime the following week. The next day I sent them a thank you email, and the HR manager replied saying that the team was very impressed and asked if I could do a second interview the next day. I agreed to the interview, however they never got a hold of me. When I contacted them to ask if they were still interested in doing a second interview it took them 2 weeks to get back to me and then they told me that they had already hired someone else. I was really angry that they planned a second interview and just blew it off without even telling me. To me, the process was very unprofessional.
