Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at PepsiCo (Rancho Cucamonga, CA) in September 2011.

Interview

Met with college recruiters at Job fair at University. I was then asked to apply online. It see,ed the recruiters didn't care much about my pas experience during the job fair. I applied online at the Pepsico careers website and received a phone call a few days later and they performed a quick phone briefing. Typical questions but didn't get a chance to talk too much about how I could be valuable to their organization. Received a generic thank you letter in the mail the following day.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at PepsiCo (Bakersfield, CA) in December 2010.

    Interview

    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 Questions

    • 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

    The organization made an offer the day after my interview. I was told that the company did not negotiate compensation, bonus or vacation.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at PepsiCo (West Valley City, UT) in August 2010.

    Interview

    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 Questions

    • 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

    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.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at PepsiCo in October 2009.

    Interview

    I was hired straight out of college... It's important to stress examples of leadership, a strong care for product quality (delighting the consumer), and an eye for safety. The interview process was with a few members of the factory's leadership team. Expect to go on a plant tour and learn how the chips are made. Frito loves to hire engineers, but please be aware that the Operations Resource position is all about being a supervisor --- not an engineer. The interviewers will likely ask if you're willing to work long hours (11+ per day), weekends, and off-shifts. If you decline, you won't be getting the job. But if you say yes, be ready to deal with a very hardworking, fast-pasted environment where you *will* be working an off-shift, weekends, and holidays.

    Interview Questions

    • Have you ever been in a situation where someone derailed your meeting? What did you do in that situation?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I didn't negotiate.
