    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.

    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.

    Application

    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.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked for examples of when I was dealing with a tough situation or a difficult team member.   Answer Question
