    Interview

    Three rounds of interviews. First interview was easy. Two supervisors came to campus and asked basic questions. The second round is more difficult. The head of the plant asks you questions and can be more intimidating. However, they are not mean, they just want to know your experiences.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at PepsiCo.

    Interview

    The interview was very organized with standard questions that you would expect from an interview. The interviewers were new staff to Pepsico, and seemed very easy to relate to. Walking in they both greeted, and shook my hand. We exchanged how our days were going. The interview lasted roughly 30 min, and was very smooth/ standard. After they asked standard questions then you had the opportunity to ask them about their experiences at Pepsico.

    Interview

    Applied on line , went through the process of the job session where hiring manager explains job description , salary, and interview process. Did the drive along first then a 20-30 minute interview five days later. Asked about my background experience ,knowledge, and skills. Was told after interview that I may get a call a week later if they find interest in me or a refusal letter. Two hour later I got a call to meet with the district sales manager in 5 days. Don't know if this is a good sign but will be ready for the next step . Best is to practice and research company you are looking for and memorize best answers of questions they may throw at you.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at PepsiCo (Janesville, WI) in April 2015.

    Interview

    First I applied on the job board for my university. After that I received an interview at my school. It was 2 on 1 and only lasted about fifteen minutes because there were only three questions. After that it took them approximately a month to get back to me to schedule a second round interview. The interview was at their facility. It consisted of one interview with the HR manager, one interview with the district sales manager and one "mock sales call" with another sales manager. They emailed me the information for the sales call in advance and I was able to prepare my speech.They were all very relaxed and friendly at the second interview.
