Operations Resource Interview

Anonymous Employee  in  Rancho Cucamonga, CA
Anonymous Employee in Rancho Cucamonga, CA
Application Details

I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took a day - interviewed at PepsiCo in September 2011.

Interview Details

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.

    The process took 5 days - interviewed at PepsiCo in May 2012.

    Interview Details

    The process is rather straight forward. I looked at Pepsico's listed online jobs and found the one I was looking for. After applying for the position I received a phone call within 4 days and was scheduled for a phone interview the following day. After a day they called back and invited me back for a plant tour.

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 2 days - interviewed at PepsiCo in November 2011.

    Interview Details

    I had a very positive experience interviewing at Frito Lay. First a brief phone interview, followed by a one-on-one interview with HR representative, and a panel interview with a total of eight managers from various departments. At the end, current employees working in this position took me and other 2 interviewees out to lunch in a nice restaurant.
    It was a long but very informative interview.

    The process took 4 months - interviewed at PepsiCo in April 2011.

    Interview Details

    Believe the best in what they do. However I didn't go to college to get a job in a factory. The company has great pay and benefits starting out but comes with a ton of hours working second or third shift. The position has extremely high turnover and the employees you manage have been working there longer than I've been alive. Decent offer, but I won't be taking the job at frito lay.
