Sales Development Program Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Newark, DE
Anonymous Interview Candidate in Newark, DE
Application Details

I applied through college or university. The process took 1 week - interviewed at PepsiCo in April 2013.

Interview Details

They asked the normal behavioral questions. Tell me about yourself, a time where your back was against the wall, a time when you have to make a difficult decision, a time when you showed leadership qualities. It was a tough interview for sure.

Interview Questions
  • I believe they asked a question about ethics, and I always feel that those questions were toughest to answer.   View Answer

    I applied through college or university - interviewed at PepsiCo in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    They recruited on campus so I had my first interview there. I talked to one guy for about a half hour and then a lady for another half hour. They were really nice, very professional. They flew me out to Detroit for my second/final interview, which was a 2 day thing. The first night was dinner, socializing and the candidates asking a panel questions for a couple hours. The next day was interviewing with 3 different people for about 45 minutes each. One was a sales pitch, the other 2 were a lot of behavioral questions. The last part was going through your resume to a group of about 20 other candidates and interviewers. Pretty intense and long. Everyone there was an over-achiever.

    Interview Questions
    • If the manager responsible for receiving a shipment did not show up to work one day, how would you handle it? The shipment still needs to get there otherwise the store will not have the correct products and it can't be late.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I am not sure if you could negotiate, but they start you off well for just graduating college, so I didn't feel the need to.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a day - interviewed at PepsiCo.

    Interview Details

    Overall the interview process was short and sweet. You get to the office and listen to a short presentation given by HR for about 1/2 hour. Then you have to give a presentation of your resume to 3 HR employees for about 10 minutes - kind of like pitching yourself. Then there are two 30 minutes interviews. After that I had to act out a sales scenario for about 15 minutes with a manager. They are open to answering questions and everyone was nice.

    Interview Questions
    • All of the questions were behavioral based. So like, what would you do if your store was out of stock and it was the weekend?   Answer Question

    I applied through college or university - interviewed at PepsiCo.

    Interview Details

    Got an interview through university career center. Was interviewed by 2 people, the whole process seemed very disorganized and the interviewers did strike me as a bit unprofessional.
    The whole thing just seemed very awkward and they refused to talk about the salary range,which obviously makes it seem like they would try to lowball me further in the interview process.
