PepsiCo – Why Work For Us?

We are driven to win. Outperforming ourselves is a rush. We’re strong individualists who thrive on collaboration. To us, it’s all about respect – for one another’s unique traits, backgrounds, perspectives and experiences. Our teams reflect the diversity of our consumers and our communities, breaking down barriers, shattering glass ceilings and winning awards. Our Employee Resource Groups are proof-positive that inclusion is a way of life at PepsiCo.

And get this. We actually care about you as a person. Not just the "you" that shows up to work every day. But the "you" that goes home to your loved ones and out into your community. We get that greatness spreads. That at some point work skills and life lessons merge, and at that point everyone’s expectations are blown out of the water. It’s called personal satisfaction. Only everyone wins.


We've hired 300,000 entrepreneurs, dreamers, doers, rainmakers and shakers. Every minute of every day on the job, we encourage them to be the best at whatever they’re doing and whoever they are. Stretch assignments, early responsibility, job rotations and awesome mentors are just part of what makes the real world at PepsiCo an unbeatable training ground. Want proof? Eighty percent of our executive team was promoted from within.


Blaze new trails. Never settle for second best. Succeed together, celebrate and do something bigger. That’s what performing with purpose is all about.

Around the world, we’re committed to giving people the taste they crave and the nutrition they need. We dream globally and act locally-constantly innovating to sustain our planet, our people, our communities and our business practices. New markets mean new ways of doing business, and new ways of addressing health concerns, cultural differences and environmental challenges. Every day is an adventure, and an opportunity for personal and professional growth.

    I have been working at PepsiCo full-time (More than a year)


    Surrounded by talented and motivated people. I've worked several jobs in my life and PepsiCo is by far the best. They really care about their employees and the opportunities are there for the taking. You will have to be dedicated and work hard to achieve what you want in this company, but that is what makes success at PepsiCo feel so good. I have never been more excited to go to work or felt more at home in any other company than I do at PepsiCo.


    The company is so big that it is sometimes easy to get lost in the maze of businesses, divisions, brands, and their various levels of management, but this is common in any large organization.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on the development of lower level employees. I have seen many move on to become phenomenon managers because of the coaching and development they were given early in their career at PepsiCo.

    Difficult Interview


    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at PepsiCo.


    This was an extremely lengthy process, as I believe my recruiter lost track of where exactly I was at the time, and the summer quarter being full of huge FL holidays. I interviewed initially at a career fair in April, I just chatted for about 5 minutes with a recruiter who moved me onto my first interview the following day. I took 2 different assessments online, a leadership and sales. I'm assuming if you don't pass them to PepsiCo standards you don't move on. I had about a 25/30 minute conversation with (I think) a regional recruiter. About three weeks later I had an interview with a Zone Sales Manager. It was about an hour and half and he was very friendly and kind and took as much time as I wanted to discuss any kind of question or concern I had. About 2 months later (I graduated and my recruiter put me on hold during the summer) I had a route ride along with a sales rep, as well as a ride along with a district sales leader. I helped stock chips, looked at an order, walked around the store and looked for new sales opportunities and asked a ton of questions. Both of these people were very kind and encouraging and, again, very helpful. A couple weeks later I had a final interview with a Regional Sales Manager. It was about 30 minutes and very no-pressure. She was very easy going and laid back and asked some of the same questions I'd been asked previously. Two weeks later I was sent a job offer via the phone, and another two weeks and my formal offer finally arrived! The process took very, very long, but I was recruited through their campus program so that could definitely have something to do with it. PATIENCE IS KEY!!!!!
