Application

I applied through other source. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at PepsiCo (Boston, MA) in March 2014.

Interview

I was asked several questions by hr and unit manager. It was very formal. They asked questions that were in the book and took notes. You should be fine as long as you use the star method.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at PepsiCo (Sunnyvale, CA) in January 2012.

    Interview

    The interview process was simple, if the boss liked you and thought they could work you to the bone and mold you, you were in. They like to think they can take advantage of a great personality and manipulate them to turn them into the Pepsi monster that forces sales on customers even when it wasn't the right thing to do.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at PepsiCo (Baton Rouge, LA) in March 2011.

    Interview

    You go in and talk to two members of local management. They ask you about yourself and your work experience. the interview was pretty relaxed and loose. Unlike most job interviews your professional appearance doesn't matter. You must do really well in the interview because in most cases they already know who there planning to hire.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at PepsiCo (Halifax, NS (Canada)) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Phone interview conducted by someone in HR Dept and a Sales Manager. Standard canned questions. Sales Manager did most of the talking. Hard to read the interviewers over phone. The whole call lasted about 45 minutes. I got the impression they already had someone elae in mind and were just going through the motions.

    Account Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at PepsiCo in July 2010.

    Interview

    I was contacted by the recruiter who set up an initial phone interview. I sent a "Thank you" and did not receive a response for a couple of days. Eventually, an in-person interview was set up. The interview went well and I really thought I got the job. It has been over a month and they have not contacted me. I thought the hiring manager seemed really upfront and honest. I thought the recruiter seemed a little scatter-brained but still really friendly. I am disappointed in my experience because I also have recruiting experience and I would simply not follow up with a candidate after having met with them in person.

    I guess my caution to you might be to make sure you are really exploring other options and not really relying on getting a position with them.
