    Interview

    I have applied to numerous positions there and have over 20 years experience in two of the top food & beverage companies in the world but never contacted for an interview.

    Interview Questions

    • My question to PepsiCo is why is the date a candidate graduated from college MANDATORY to list when applying for a job online? I know it is illegal to ask that during an interview but one can't even get the possibility of an interview without first answering that question.   1 Answer

    Interview

    Nice conversation that they want to know if you would be fit for the job and the company as well as they tested if you do your homework. Skills to handle unique questions are the must. Overall, it was a great experience.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at PepsiCo in June 2017.

    Interview

    1. Applied Online
    2. Recruiter contacted me after 6-8 weeks for a phone screen. The phone screen consisted of resume review, her describing the role/team, general fit questions, pretty standard phone screen.
    3. A week later, a skype interviews set up with members of the overarching business unit. The interviews were not with people that would directly be in my sub-team or managers but with people in a different team within the same org at Pepsi. The interviews were pretty cordial but there was a lack of clarity during the whole recruitment process about the role.

    Dinged a week later after I reached out to my recruiter. On the plus side everyone I met with was pretty friendly.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at PepsiCo.

    Interview

    Very easy. Asks and refers a lot on what you have on your resume, experiences working with groups, and problem solving skills. Very competitive so you have to really talk about a skill or asset you have that others don't. They will try to place you in the region or location you want to intern at.

    Expect 4-5 weeks from start to finish.
    Then you have a week training class (This will be the best part of your entire experience at this company). Really long-winded for what the job is...

    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    Interview took 2 months to set up after several follow-up emails from my end. Finally had the phone interview but it quickly soured after 20 minutes and ended after I asked about one of the responsibilities in the job description. HR sounded upset and said "this role doesn't do any of that! They never do!!!". She didn't seem to have a very firm grasp about what the role itself entailed and was very rude from first contact to last.

    Route Sales Representative Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at PepsiCo (Salinas, CA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    The phone screen process is the dumbest thing I've ever had to do. You answer a series of questions on a recorded line. The questions aren't something you can prepare for. I would much rather talk to a real person rather than leave a 10 min voicemail answering questions. It's unrealistic and there's no point to it. It's MUCH more than just a "phone screen" it's a real interview with a voicemail machine. I guess we'll see how I did in a few days

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at PepsiCo (Washington, DC) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Very casual and the interviewer was extremely friendly. The interviewer spent the first 30 minutes just asking about my personal life and talked about his family for a bit. Then he lightly went over my resume. Nothing too difficult.
