    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at PepsiCo in June 2015.

    Interview

    Interview took about an hour. Applied online, got a call in a few days. Questions were more about my style of doing things than technical stuff. They had a standard form with questions they asked at each interview. They kept me in the lurch for a week. Then told me they'd hired someone else. Felt like my time was spent.

    Route Driver Interview

    Negative Experience

    Interview

    Pass the phone interview and the face interview however I still didn't get the position with a Class B n Class A Permit. I'm not sure why I didn't get the position. I think it's because I am a female and they believe that I'm not strong enough to do a man's job. All I see is men drivers.

    I wasn't asked many questions. Instead I was informed of how the distribution center operates and given a tour of their center. I was asked a couple of times if I was intimidated by it all since there are so many different products.
