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. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at PepsiCo in March 2017.

    Interview

    I interviewed through my university. My interviewer was a VP in the HR division that was an alumni of our school. He was really laid-back and helped the interview run smoothly like a normal conversation. He asked about my experience in depth and asked some behavioral questions with the STAR method. He also answered all my questions about the company honestly and had a general enthusiasm for my candidacy. I heard back from them about 2 weeks later.
