Application

I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at PepsiCo (Champaign, IL).

Interview

The interview was a standard interview. They expected the STARS response and stated that explicitly. No technical questions were asked, just behavioral/situational questions. The night before the interview, there was a company social with all of the people selected for an interview and the recruiters.

    Application

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

    Interview

    Had a phone interview and then attended a video conference that was required. Phone interview was very straight forward and what you would expect. Video conference was 15+ people listening to 4 employees talk about their roles and the company. It was very interesting, but with so many people it wasn't interviewing more just listening.

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

    Interview

    I interviewed for the manufacturing internship position. The first round interview was a very simple behavioral interview. There were no real trick questions and they were interested in your problem shooting and management skills. The interview was set up so there were two employees asking me questions which I replied to using the star method. The interviewers were very nice and conversation flowed easily.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at PepsiCo (New York, NY) in September 2016.

    Interview

    The interview was fairly straightforward - two behavioral interviews back to back. Everyone was very kind and nice and the questions were typical behavioral questions. Knowing the company well really helps and having good ideas of their different brands is crucial in my opinion.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at PepsiCo.

    Interview

    There were two interviewers in the room. Both were very relaxed, and seemed to be really engaged with my answers and my experience. One guy was really young, the woman was middle aged. Man shared that he was a transfer from Pittsburgh to southern Indiana and that freaked me out. Other that that, the room was really hot and they were cool with me making jokes about it.
