    Spoke with HR on the phone first. Then scheduled for 4 face-to-face meetings. Had 1 more follow-up phone interview. Process took over 2 months as they continued to delay a decision date. The interview itself was pretty straight forward: mainly behavioral-based, get-to-know questions followed by a few case study type questions.

    Applied online and made it to first round via campus recruiting. 100% behavioral at the first level. It's not so difficult, but they're looking to be "inspired" by you in some way. Have really good events to recall, seriously.

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at PepsiCo (Chicago, IL) in February 2015.

    1 round. Phone interview. 2-3 basic behavioral questions with a short brainstorming exercise at the end.

Also a hair drug test was required - received the email at random about a month after receiving the offer.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at PepsiCo (Plano, TX) in January 2015.

    Interview

    All interviews were a combination of behavioral and technical questions. Pretty casual but definitely need a basic understanding of financial terms. PepsiCo has a lot of acronyms that can become confusing. Don't be scared be to ask what the mean. People often forget that most people don't know what they mean.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at PepsiCo (Dallas, TX) in October 2012.

    Interview

    Applied through campus recruiting, interviewed on campus a few weeks later. Interview was behavioral with two interviewers. Questions were pretty basic and interviewers were friendly. Received word about 1 week later that I was not moving on to the next round. After asking for feedback, I was told that it would have been beneficial to me if I had attended the info session (which I had done), which makes me think they do not check their sign-ins.
