    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at PepsiCo (New Brunswick, NJ) in March 2015.

    Interview

    1. Check in with ID 2. Go into office with nice lady review yor job history. 3. Watch a 12 minute video alone. Read paperwork for 10 mins sign paper giving them permission for you to do a short task. 3 meet the Hiring manager(s) 2 people. 4. Preform a test 15 mins. 5. Sit down with both managers discuss how you did completing task. Also talk about the job a bit more in depth, Questions- Tell me a time you had to deal with a angry customer, how did you handle it? P.S( I was so anxious before getting to the interview worrying what I'd be asked. The interview was honestly a great experience nothing was too complicated at all. The most difficult part is the 15 minute task ( I was sweating) Even though your getting interviewed by 2 people only 1 ask questions and the other just writes down your answers. Seems intimidating but really isn't just relax! Had my interview yesterday should hear something back tomorrow.) im 20 years old
