    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at PepsiCo.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter at Pepsi approximately a week after submitting an application for a position. I was then asked to phone screen a couple of days later. The phone screen was rescheduled due to conflicts on the recruiter's side. I then spoke with the recruiter a couple of days after that. She asked me general screening questions. I was then invited to interview with the hiring manager that same day. I was very disappointed in this interview. PepsiCo touts itself on using research based methods to make the most informed business decisions. The hiring manager asked me ONE question during the interview, and then proceeded to describe the role in further depth for around an hour. Structured interviews have been proven to be the most effective in determining which candidate was most qualified for the role. A structured interview WAS NOT used in this case, which means the team made a hiring decision that was not based upon skills and abilities necessary for performing the role in the best capacity.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at PepsiCo.

    Interview

    Applied on LinkedIn, a recruiter reached out a few days later, probably had 5-6 video interviews with various members of the team over the course of a few weeks. It probably took longer due to COVID, whereas if I came in person I could meet with everyone at once. Everyone was incredibly nice, the conversations were relaxed and I actually looked forward to each subsequent interview.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at PepsiCo (San Diego, CA) in April 2020.

    Interview

    I interviewed for Frito Lay specifically.
    I talked to some people at my school's Career Fair in February and was given a job description and link to apply to. I submitted the application in the beginning of March and was emailed a few days later that I got a first round interview. The first round was a phone interview with someone who was previously in the role and their manager. Lasted about 30-45 minutes and was more casual with some scripted questions, and was told on the spot that I made it to the next round. My second round interview was at the end of March and done virtually through Zoom due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Standard type interview with STAR/SOAR type questions with two women in management positions at the company. Was emailed the next day that I got a 3rd round/final interview which was held a few days later also through ZOOM. It was with 2 men also in management positions in the Southwest Region and same type of questions including one overlapping question from the previous interview. Got a standard "we have decided to move on with other candidates" email a week later so I did not get the job. Great experience, everyone was very warm and nice during the entire process.

    Application

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

    Interview

    The marketing interview was a little bit vague in the process, but overall pretty much as expected. There was also a case where you looked at financials to offer recommendations or explanations to why something was occurring.
