    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at PepsiCo.

    Interview Details

    Met representatives at a college campus information session, everybody who attended was granted an interview. First interview was on campus, two PepsiCo associates that asked behavioral questions (biggest achievement, strengths and weaknesses, working in a team, etc.), pretty low key. I received a call about a week later and my next interview was on-site.

    Went on-site and had a panel interview with four employees, more behavioral questions but some technical about LSS.

    Key Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I interviewed in-person. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at PepsiCo.

    Interview Details

    Lengthy Interview process that can be broken into several days with several people. Sometimes it can be one-on-one interviews and sometimes a large panel of people. HR makes a lot of promises and offer you the world, but after a year on the job you'll learn that was fluff. If your a professional brown noser and like to feed into the rumor mill, this is a great place to work.

    Interview Questions
    • "If you could sell a large quantity of product that would help you make your sales quota, but knew the product was defective, would you still sell it and why?"   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Pretty straight forward, not much room to counter offer on the salary.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Nashville, TN
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at PepsiCo in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    Started an application for Frito lay about a couple months ago and received a call about a month later to set up an interview. Had to fill out some paperwork and had the first of two interviews. Interview was very smooth and comfortable, nothing out of the ordinary. About a week later was emailed to receive second interview with larger and smaller district managers. Again interview was very smooth and comfortable. Set up ride along a week later with a very seasoned guy and he gave me all the ins and outs. Returned to the DC and was given an offer and took my drug test that day. Their drug test isn't the usual urine test. They use hair samples because it is more accurate and can go back about 6 months or so. Start in two weeks.
