Operations Resource Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at PepsiCo in December 2010.
Interview Details – Structured interviews at the production facility with the Executive Team at the plant. We were provided a tour, then went through five separate one-on-one interviews. We were also given an opportunity to have lunch with other frontline managers currently performing the job that we were interviewing for.
Interview Question – No one question was particularly difficult, however one of the interviews was simple awkward as the interviewee simply stared at you following your answer which created an extremely uncomfortable feeling. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – The organization made an offer the day after my interview. I was told that the company did not negotiate compensation, bonus or vacation.
Supply Chain Associate Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at PepsiCo in February 2013.
Interview Details – The initial Communication after I first sent them my resume was pretty poor. It took a couple weeks before I received any type of confirmation that my resume had been received. When I did receive confirmation, they were quick to offer me an interview, which I gladly accepted. The interview process was pretty quick and easy. They had a two part interview set up, the first of which was with their Product Availability Supervisor (PAS), and Product Availability Manager (PAM). The second was with the Warehouse Manager and another Supervisor. Each interview had a lot of situation / what if questions. I felt very good about the interview when I left and I new I would get the job even though one of the managers seemed very worried about by me being in the Marine Corps and how much time it would take away from the business. It took them forever to make their decision. I received a call about two months later with a job offer, I initially told them I would need a couple days to think about the offer which they allowed for, I accepted the offer two days later.
Interview Question – Who would you place more of your time and or loyalty towards if a conflict of scheduling or career advancement came about, Pepsi or the Marine Corps. View Answer
Negotiation Details – There wasn't a whole lot of negotiation with the offer they gave me, as I was fairly happy with the offer, especially since it wasn't a straight salary, I would be overtime eligible.

Business Analyst Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at PepsiCo.
Interview Details – I interviewed with 2 people. One was more social/professional and the other seemed more stoic/professional. Each was 30 minutes. They asked typical Interview questions. Both asked what would I do given a particular work example. It helps to review the department you going to, and if you do NOT find answers, THOSE are YOUR interview questions.
Interview Question – Nothing was difficult. Advice: if you are faced with a difficult question, be honest and say that it is an interesting questions and you will answer it to the best of your ability. View Answer
