    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at PepsiCo in November 2015.

    Interview

    I applied in the beginning of August and did not get a response until roughly 4 weeks later. The first part was a phone "interview" where someone from HR asks you a few questions and then tells you about the position. It was then followed up with an appointment to take an assessment test via your home computer at a later date. Upon successful completion of the test they make arrangements for you to have a ride along/site down interview. The ride along was pleasant as were the people you meet. The sit down interview is typical to any other interview where they ask you scenario "what if" or "tell me about a time" type questions. Roughly three weeks later I had to call to inquire on whether or not I was going to get an offer of which I did not; makes me a little salty. I was more than qualified if not too qualified for the position (I applied for the position knowing this but I saw it as an opportunity to get my foot in the door of a Fortune 50 company). I have no doubt that someone half my age just out of college was hired above me (probably around the same age of the person that took me on the ride along) that has the same amount of experience in life that I had just last week.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    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!!!!!

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at PepsiCo.

    Interview

    Three stages to the hiring process. First is an initial interview with simple basic questions. Then if you move on, you do a ride-along with a truck driver in the area, where you are evaluated based on your attitude and interest level. Then finally, I was called up for a final interview and it consisted of a 2 day even with lots of networking opportunities and 3 interviews, each with 2 people in the room.

    The hiring process took about two month but the job requires highly skilled business professional type person to be successful. Phone interview with talent recruiter, phone interview with zone leaders, ride along with current sales rep., panel interview with multiple zone leaders.
