The interview process was grueling - met with multiple people each time. Total of two or three interviews including a case study (test). The process itself took almost three months from start to finish.
Other Interview Reviews for PepsiCo
Manager InterviewNo OfferPositive ExperienceAverage 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.
- How would you describe your leadership style? Answer Question
Management InterviewNo Offer
The job interview process can be lengthy. Being interviewed once and getting a job offer is typically a thing of the past. Today, many companies have an involved interview process starting with screening interviews, followed by in-person interviews, second interviews and even third interviews.
- The most difficult and unexpected question was a bunch of What if" and "An example of when..." kind of behavioral questions. I should have prepared these, I had not and really was stumped and ended up giving them real examples and expressed my honest opinions (not a good idea esp if you are opinionated like me).

I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at PepsiCo.
A previous associate had recommended me for a position. The management team was assertive in following up with me to interview. The process included multiple rounds of phone and face to face interviews ending with a dinner with 2 levels of management.
- How are you going to exceed the positions goals today? Answer Question
Things that were outside of "norm" (ie. vacation time) were verbally agreed with managers because it would not be documented with HR.

I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at PepsiCo in February 2012.
It is long and tedious. They could have at least given me some free junk food to eat during the interview. I should have stayed home and slept in. It would have been more productive. The interview took a very long long long long long time.

The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at PepsiCo in September 2011.
Was contacted directly by the HR manager. Interviewed with HR, hiring manager and two other individuals at a more senior level. After those interviews had to go through a typical business case presentation. All interviewers were extremely courteous and pleasant. The offer was made a few days after the business case presentation.
- Questions were mostly based on my resume and experience. Nothing too extreme. One of the questions that threw me off was "Why are you applying for this position when you can get a more senior role someplace else?" This threw me off as during the interviews all the interviewers kept referencing the "great seniority" of this role and how I was the perfect fit. Answer Question
