Operations Resource Interview

Anonymous Employee
West Valley City, UT

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at PepsiCo in August 2010.

Interview Details – Interviewing process will include a first phone interview (mostly for screening purposes) and a second in-person interview. The key with everyone in West Valley is to mention teamwork/teams first and foremost,

Interview Question – They, of course, asked the standard interview questions. So be prepared for those. Most people are least prepared for the question, "What are your weaknesses?"   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – They gave a salary and made it clear it was not negotiable. I'm not sure if that's actually true though. Personally I believe that everything is negotiable.

Packaging Intern Interview

Anonymous Employee

Interviewed at PepsiCo

Interview Details – The interview was done on Michigan State Universities campus during the 2014 Packaging Career Fair. The interview was very relaxing. The interview consisted of a HR manager, packaging engineer, and a current intern. Having an intern showed that they were open to show you what the experience was actually like.

Interview Question – There were no difficult or unexpected questions. The questions were all relevant and asked in a non threatening way.   Answer Question

Administrative Assistant Interview

Administrative Assistant
Flint, MI

I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at PepsiCo in February 2014.

Interview Details – I was interviewed by 3 current employees. The person that was suppose to do the interview had a medical emergency and relied upon these employees. This was my first interview in 20 years (I have been at my current job that long) and I clearly was not prepared as I thought I was. I research the company more than I did the facility, and it was the facility that they asked me about. Pepsico has 3 standard interview questions (with no right or wrong answers) and then their own. I can't even tell you the 3 standard questions as I walked out knowing I did not do well and my nervousness was pretty evident. Sounded like a great job but obviously I wasn't going to get an offer.

Interview Question – I can't remember the questions but there was no difficult ones if you were prepared.   Answer Question

Sales Associate Interview

Sales Associate

I applied through college or university and the process took 4 days - interviewed at PepsiCo in March 2014.

Interview Details – A bit confusing at first. Had an information session at my school, then wanted people to sign up for interviews. The interview was really basic, but then they gave you a synopsis of what this position entails (long hours, probably won't move up fast, but eventually).

Intern Interview

Intern

I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at PepsiCo in February 2011.

Interview Details – Initial interview was performed by an HR rep and the purpose was to get a feel for the candidate and asked questions about previous work experiences and any other activity involvement. The second interview was on site, which also included a tour of the facility. All prospective intern and permanent job candidates were also brought in to learn more about Frito Lay operations. The interview was performed by two managers. They already had a list behavioral questions prepared and wrote responses accordingly. The final interview, which was about a couple of weeks later was just to gain more personal information about you and was performed by an HR rep. After that, you should receive a letter in the mail and/or an email with their decision.

Interview Question – They were all behavioral questions so they were along the lines of: Give an example of a time when you had a disagreement with a co-worker or group member and tell us how you resolved that conflict. Another question dealt with how do effectively communicate your ideas to the team and how do you respond when your ideas are not taken into consideration?   Answer Question
