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

Supply Chain Intern Interview

Supply Chain Intern

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at PepsiCo.

Interview Details – Was told to apply online after a career fair. I did so and heard back after a few days for a pre-screen interview. After the pre-screen phone call I was invited to interview in person. The in person interview was pretty extensive. It included a tour of the facility and then 3, 2-person panels asking me generic HR questions. At the same time as me there were 2 other candidates interviewing for the same position.

Interview Question – There were no unexpected questions. Most of the questions went along the lines of tell us a time where... and then fill in the blank with various situations.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There was no negotiation phase as it was a pre-set internship position.

Quality Control Supervisor Interview

Quality Control Supervisor

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at PepsiCo in October 2012.

Interview Details – Went through a 3 round interview process for campus hire position. First was on-campus, second was at the large fair in Michigan, third was at the plant itself. Very thorough and very long. The on-campus was pretty simple/basic. However, the second interview was a 2-day ordeal. Many different interview styles.

Interview Question – Situational questions (in which you've never been in the situation) are very difficult to answer. Aka: how would you react this issue or this issue happening at the same time.   Answer Question
