    Service Technician Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Charleston, SC

    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?"....

    Positive Experience
    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.

    Analytics Interview

    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

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Salinas, CA

    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.
