    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at PepsiCo in October 2012.

    Interview

    You must check the Frito-Lay employment website daily as job openings are change on that basis. Once you apply online for an open RSR position you must take a "think like a robot" test. You should pass if you answer the questions as if you were a HR manager looking at your responses. If you pass the test then they may call you in for a group interview where you will be given an overview of the company, pay, benefits, a safety lecture and FAQ time. Then if they still like you then they will call you in for a one on one interview. If they don't select you for the job but still like you they may ask if you want to sit "the bench" and they may call you in next time a job becomes available (this could take months to years) then you must submit to a hair follicle drug test that can test up to a year back. Good luck.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at PepsiCo (Pittsfield, MA).

    Interview

    Pretty lengthy. People seem to get mad that they check DMV records but you drive a truck so they should. Hair Follicle drug test too. They want people with integrity and there is nothing wrong with that.

    Interview Questions

    • Some of the questions that you take on Fritolayemployment.com are tough. Graphs and some actual math questions. I think all the questions are great though because if you can't make it through the testing then maybe you really fit for the job.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I was 21 when I got hired. Hmmmm... negotiation was - "We have a route for you. You will probably make 50-55k this year. Sound good?" I was 21 with only a H.S. diploma. Incredible opportunity!!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at PepsiCo (Federal Way, WA) in July 2012.

    Interview

    Pretty standard interview consisting of selling the company, the district and the local manager pretty heavily. There were a few questions about sales but, because I am overweight, the interviewer began to focus on how "Hard" the work was and that when "I worked the truck, I was in pretty good shape and it was still a workout for me". It was pretty obvious that they weren't interested in anyone that is overweight.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at PepsiCo (Richmond, VA) in September 2011.

    Interview

    Not so bad if you do not mind the tribunal treatment. I can handle interviews pretty well though so I was not bothered by sitting in front of 3 to 4 people and answering their questions. You just need to be yourself and have all of your composure gathered if you do not know how to handle your stress in these kinds of scenarios.
