    Assistant Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at PepsiCo.

    Interview

    I submitted an application online and was contacted by a Talent Acquisition Specialist about 2 weeks later. We scheduled a phone screen later in the week. I had a screening with hiring manager the following week. She moved me ahead to an in-person interview.

    The final interview was a series of five in-person interviews with various marketing and cross-functional team members.

    This is where things went south...the hiring manager had to cancel due to an emergency (understandable). We connected the following day and scheduled another in-person interview for the following week. I received an email from an HR coordinator saying that the hiring manager had to cancel, and that someone would call me about next steps within 24 hours.

    Not only did no one ever contact me, but I received a form rejection email over a week later. I don't mind the rejection, but the fact that they dragged it out for so long (they even re-posted the job before I got my email!) didn't sit well with me at all.

    Also- the talent acquisition specialist said that I would receive feedback no matter the outcome, but I never did. It was so strange how they were interested one minute, then dropped me with no explanation the next.

    Supply Chain Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at PepsiCo (Chicago, IL) in July 2017.

    Interview

    I went through a recruiter and was given an opportunity to interview for a temp position in Chicago. I was interviewed in the West Loop corporate office by 4 people. It was a set of back-to-back panel interviews-keep in mind that this means that both people from both panels have to want you in order to move forward.

    I thought he interview went well. I was told that I'd get an answer by the end of the next week.

    When I left the office, I wrote personalized thank you cards for each of the interviewers. I went one step further and dropped them off at the company mail room. Each of the interviewers should have recieved the cards the next day.

    I didn't hear anything back from Pepsi or the recruiter even after emailing the recruiter. I can't say that I'm surprised that no one reached out to me. As a job seeker, being "ghosted" after an interview is almost commonplace and frankly quite rude.

    Interview

    I have applied to numerous positions there and have over 20 years experience in two of the top food & beverage companies in the world but never contacted for an interview.

    Interview Questions

    • My question to PepsiCo is why is the date a candidate graduated from college MANDATORY to list when applying for a job online? I know it is illegal to ask that during an interview but one can't even get the possibility of an interview without first answering that question.   1 Answer

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at PepsiCo in June 2017.

    Interview

    1. Applied Online
    2. Recruiter contacted me after 6-8 weeks for a phone screen. The phone screen consisted of resume review, her describing the role/team, general fit questions, pretty standard phone screen.
    3. A week later, a skype interviews set up with members of the overarching business unit. The interviews were not with people that would directly be in my sub-team or managers but with people in a different team within the same org at Pepsi. The interviews were pretty cordial but there was a lack of clarity during the whole recruitment process about the role.

    Dinged a week later after I reached out to my recruiter. On the plus side everyone I met with was pretty friendly.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at PepsiCo (Chicago, IL) in June 2017.

    Interview

    I was interviewed by George the Supervisor of the facility. He made me feel extremely comfortable. Before the actual interview he explained the actual interview process which was pretty cool in my opinion, it helped relieve a lot of pre interview stress. He was extremely thorough in explaining the culture of the company and the position itself. The question were what would you do/what have you done situational questions which turned out to be fairly easy to answer because of my work history.

    Interview Questions

    • He asked if I could describe myself in one word what will it be.   1 Answer
