    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at PepsiCo.

    Interview Details

    Pretty lengthy and detailed interview process. The first interview was a behavioral interview with HR. Once I passed that, I was given a assessment online with situational questions (from a management perspective). After passing that I was contacted by HR to schedule a Hiring Conference in Portland. The Hiring conference was two days, one day consisting of meeting and taking a tour of the Frito Lay plant. The next day consisted of 3 separate 45min interviews. Overall was a great experience.

    Interview Details

    Disappointing interview process. After 2 interviews, one with hiring manager and regional director, I was verbally offered positions. One week later offer was retracted because HR did not approve of decision by hiring manager. It was a tough pill to sallow considering it happened before the holidays. Hoping to latch on in the future.

    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.

    Supply Chain Resource Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at PepsiCo.

    Interview Details

    I first contacted Frito-Lay at an on campus career fair. After speaking with them at the fair I applied both on their website as well as on my university's career site. Once applied, within a week or two I received an on campus interview. The night before the interview an information session was held that I attended which detailed many of the job specifics.

    The next day I attended a 30min very typical interview (some behavioral questions, some industry related questions - i.e.. give an example of a process and have you improved it). After completing that interview I received a call inviting me to take part in the second round interview at their site in Killingly CT.

    The day on site consisted of an information session from 8:15-8:54, a plant tour 8:45-9:45, then 3 rounds of interviews with 3 different individuals in various management positions. I found these interview to actually be quite casual with the managers trying to get a feel for who I was and why I was there (obviously required HR questions were asked- again some behavioral, others similar to the process question).

    Finally I received a call the same day that i was going to receive an official offer the middle of the following week.

    Interview Questions
    • The questions were all very typical. Some behavioral questions and some industry questions- "Give a time where you improved a product or process and explain to me how"   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I did not negotiate. The offer was very good, with a great starting salary (65,000) and very good signing and relocation bonuses, being 2,500 and 5,000 respectively (withe the 5,000 relocation bonus being tax free)
