Application

I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at PepsiCo (Modesto, CA) in April 2015.

Interview

I applied online, they call me to set up an interview 3 days later. The first session was with 15 other applicants we watch a video about Pepsico and a video of the position we were applying for. After the video we sign some paper work stating wages, hours, shift etc.. The HR lady explain to us the background and drug test. She said within a week qualified applicant will be call for a one on one 30 minute interview. I was call in for the interview approximately a week later. They use the STAR Method for interviews. I had a background check the day after my interview. Beware do not lie on your resume they check everything including calling your past employer. I passed now im just waiting for the drug test.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed at PepsiCo (Beloit, WI).

    Interview

    Applications are only accepted via computer/online during a very limited time. There is an initial interview and "Select Test." There is a drug test and background check that must be passed before being hired. The drug test is a hair test. They take the applicants into the production plant and let them try packing to get a feel and sight of what they'll be doing.

    Interview Questions

    • It's been too many years since I did a packer interview so I don't remember the questions but they were "basic" interview questions.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There is no negotiation. It is what it is. Everyone starts at the same pay rate and benefits and everyone progresses at the same rate. There is no performance bonus.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at PepsiCo in May 2008.

    Interview

    You walk into a large room filled with other Frito-Lay job applicants. They ask you to fill out an application. You then put the application into an envelope and give it to the coordinator of the event. You then sit in the room and wait for the coordinator to call your name. During my interview, there were 2 interviewers. They ask you pretty simple questions really- mostly relating to your past experiences. Give them enough valid and useful information for them to write on your review- as they will be filling this out throughout your interview, and you will be set.
