I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at PepsiCo (Boise, ID) in January 2017.

Interview

On line application and ability assessment (about an hour). Automated phone interview (about 20 minutes). Job was posted on Wednesday, Two days later received notification that position was being eliminated. What???? Thanks for posting a job, wasting applicants time with extensive application process, then deciding to eliminate job, all within a few days. A poor representation of the company and inept human resources department.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at PepsiCo (Indianapolis, IN) in July 2016.

    Interview

    I applied for the position online for a FT Merchandiser position 78th St plant Indianapolis In, then scheduled the phone interview, I signed in at 10:30am, I had the face to face interview on July 14th 2016, then I waited for a good month only for the merchandiser to falsify the outcome and posted online that I missed the interview which blocks me from applying again for 3 yrs. How wrong is this for a Pepsi Mgr to falsify the outcome? I called the Tech asst 800 number and to this day of Aug 23, 2016 Im still getting the same answer of we are waiting for the merch mgr to respond with notes from the interview. I asked why it was taking so long for an answer and I was informed that people might be on vacation. What is the penalty for a mgmt. team member to falsify the outcome of a interview? I don't know what else to do at this point. I was a pt merchandiser for Pepsi out of Vincennes In but I needed more hours and pay and I was ready for the challenge.

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at PepsiCo (Lake Charles, LA) in January 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was simple. You go there watch a video and answers some work related questions. But then they take you to the back of the warehouse and give you 15 minutes to stock shelves. So you have push a loaded pallet jack to one side of the building and load an empty pallet with the drinks you need.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at PepsiCo (Oklahoma City, OK).

    Interview

    Very short interview. I was asked situational questions. Aside from that, questions generally focused on my retail experience, primarily in stockrooms. The interview was by no measure, "intense". They just need to get a sense of your practical experience in a sales/grocery setting.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at PepsiCo (Memphis, TN) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online-Got an email to set up a phone interview.
    Phone interview- basic work related questions, took maybe 15 mins
    Face to Face interview-watched a video, did some work related exercise and then did an interview.
    The work exercise was a complete joke, wanted me to put pepsi bottles on a shelf for 15 mins. They give you a paper that has directions but the paper clearly states that you have more than 15 mins to complete the work. I completed the work and they said I did great. The face to face interview was 3 questions and took no more than 5 mins. I'm pretty sure they must have already hired someone and were just getting me done has quickly has possible.
