    Route Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Salinas, CA
    No Offer
    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

    The first part of the process is a ride along so you get a feel for the job and the early hours. Then an interview and a second. When I did it 9 years ago it was a 4-5 week process.

    RSR Route Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at PepsiCo (Los Angeles, CA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Called in with a large group for informational session about company and job. Question and answers followed presentation. After Q & A individual interviews took place, with very basic STAR formatted questions. Also took copies of DMV records & Driver's license prior to interviews. (by doing this they are bypassing age discrimination laws! It is quite obvious they are looking for young people to fill these positions) I have extensive experience in the retail/DSD space & am quite sure I was passes due to my age!
    Just wish I would have not wasted my time with this process as they had no intentions of giving me a shot.

    Interview

    the interview process was very long. after the initial interview you then have a panel interview and the last step is a phone interview. it seems like the company has to interview everyone that passes the assessment which draws the process out. even though they may want to hire you. they have to wait to interview several others before they can move you along in the process

    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at PepsiCo (Carol Stream, IL) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Interview went really well, I had a quick screening interview with one district manager & then a 2 person panel interview with 2 other district managers. Interview was really relaxed & laid back, I just acted myself, I told them about how I have provided great service to my customer's. As soon as i left building to get in my car I was contacted by yet another manager saying I passed both interviews & will be moving forward with the next step which is riding along with another RSR for job shadowing. I finished that on Sat 11/12/16, Ride along went great & now I'm just waiting for back round test to be done as the 3rd party company who does it for them can be a pita to work with. I look forward to being called back with an offer & job start date!!
