    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at PepsiCo (Warner Robins, GA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Met at the the career fair at my school. Was selected for on campus interview and then later was accepted for second round interview. Entire process was smooth. They were quick to let me know whether i was selected or not. Interview type was STAR. They however did not provide much information regarding the positions duties other than to be very vague. Turns out this was because the duties of the position are very vague and you could be doing anything with the manufacturer management role.

    Manufacturing Operations Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at PepsiCo.

    Interview

    I talked to a recruiter at my university's career fair and he sent me an email telling me to apply for the position. I received an interview offer a few weeks later. The interview was very professional and strictly behavioral. It seemed like the interviewer already made up his mind in the middle of the interview since the total time of the interview was only 15 minutes (10 minutes of questions, and 5 minutes of me asking questions). That was rather intimidating. He said that they would reply within 3 weeks for second round interviews.
