    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at PepsiCo (Cork (Ireland)) in September 2016.

    Process duration was approximately 2 weeks from the time of interview to receipt of job offer. Interview was mainly competency based using the STARS technique. Questions were reasonably straightforward. Having completed this initial interview with the function manager and another associate, I was called back within 1 week to schedule some time to complete an online psychometric test. The test was of average difficulty for tests of this type. Within another week, I received a job offer which I accepted.

    Researcher Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at PepsiCo (Purchase, NY) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I had phone interviews with HR and the hiring manager. Then traveled to the office to have a 30-minute interview with a team member. I was supposed to have other interviews in-person but they canceled. Not sure why my travel was needed. Never heard back within the stated timeframe and emailed about the status to learn I was not offered the job. The recruiter never spoke to me again throughout the process and reimbursement messed up so I had to pay for part of my interview expenses and wait to be reimbursed. Overall, the interview was disorganized and I was not impressed with the process. It appeared everyone I spoke to had a different opinion of what the job was going to be, which was a major concern.

    Service Technician Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Charleston, SC
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at PepsiCo (Charleston, SC) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Applied through website, took a few weeks to get a call for an interview, it was scheduled for a week out from that date. Interviewed, asked to complete a hypothetical written test, then hiring manager (or rep) asks you some canned questions we all hear at every job interview and reviews the test. Test is a little convoluted and the time frame is too short, you will be able to do it, but you will miss things.... not exactly a true guage of ones apptitude.

    Interview went well and was told I should hear back within a week or two..... Well 6 weeks went by and I finally got my no thank you letter. From start to finish it took over two months to hear anything back from them.

    The reason is they use a 3rd party to handle their hiring and recruiting. This coupled with the bureaucracy of the agency and pepsi, nobody really knew what was going on. SOOOO if you apply do not bother with follow up calls or letters, it is a waste of your time and they do not look at them, calling them will not work either. BTW I did not "pester" them, just the standard 2 week follow up, followed by an atypical 5 week, "WHAT? Is going on?"....
