    Average Interview

    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.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at PepsiCo in December 2009.

    Interview

    I got my first interview with Frito-Lay through my Career Center on campus. The first interview was basically a joke. I was so nervous but it turned out to be very laid back and the guy who interviewed me basically just talked about himself and the company the whole time. When I mentioned something about the internship I completed over the summer, he was confused and looked down at my resume and then said "I'm sorry I haven't even looked at this thing!" Wow. At the end, he asked me if I understood the position and if I was still interested. I said yes and I was moved onto the next interview. Next, I had a phone interview. It was very simple and asked general questions about my resume and experience. I got through to the next part of the interview process which was a route ride with a route sales rep. I had a good time with the guy and he really showed me the ins and outs of his job. That was probably the most beneficial part of the interview process because he showed me exactly who I'd be managing if I got the job. After the route ride, I probably had at least 3 more phone interviews. It was absolutely ridiculous to be honest. I was asked the exact same questions in every interview. In the end, I was asked to participate in a final interview in Birmingham, AL. They paid for all of my expenses and put me in a hotel for the night. I went through two pretty intense interviews in Birmingham and it was about a week or two before I heard back from them. A woman called me and told me that they weren't ready to make a decision about me yet and that they would give me another call back at the beginning of February to tell me their final decision (whether or not they were going to hire me). I have never heard back from Frito-Lay since then. I think that is a little ridiculous.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at PepsiCo in February 2010.

    Interview

    Interview process was straight forward, yet friendly.There were questions about leadership experience. You could tell that they are a results oriented-company, so life/work balance could be an issue. The job itself, sounded rewarding, yet challenging.
