    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.

    Situational Interview, where as the applicant shows up in a professional attire. They are asked several question based on situations they may have found themselves in or hypothetical situations. Two of the management team sat across the table from me and at the answer to each of my questions, they jotted a score number down on the paper they had in front of them. They interviewed other applicants in the same way and the best score received the job.

    Merchandiser Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at PepsiCo.

    Interview

    Was referred in by a friend. Interviewed went well and waited weeks before I was officially accepted and given a start date. The company is very disorganized and could not give me any real info which should have tipped me off as to how their company is ran. But the actual interview process was easy despite their disorganization and terrible communication.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at PepsiCo.

    Interview

    The process consisted of one recruiter phone interview and one hiring manager phone interview. Even though it look like I would be qualified for the role and I took the step to follow up, I never heard back with next steps or whether they wanted to move forward or not.

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at PepsiCo (Daytona Beach, FL) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Assessment exercise, watch a video, asked a few questions on how would I handle certain situations if I were hired. Nothing too extreme, pretty easy (if you go in and just be yourself & honest).

    Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at PepsiCo in February 2017.

    Interview

    I applied on my college's job site (no cover letter, just a resume), and was contacted after the end of the resume drop deadline for an interview and a pre-interview mixer. Mixer was quite long - about two hours - but it was a great opportunity to meet the interviewers ahead of time and learn about them and the company without the pressure of the interview format. Interview was two half hour interviews with two people each, who were from different seniority levels of the marketing arm. Very interesting questions that were split between asking about experiences and marketing specific questions, but very doable even though it was my first marketing interview (mostly assessing what you would do in a specific situation, trends in general that you see happening). Overall a really pleasant experience that almost didn't feel like an interview.
