    Warehouse Loader Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Diego, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at PepsiCo (San Diego, CA) in December 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online, with my resume and application, which was immediately followed by an assessment test that takes between an 1 and 1 1/2 hrs. It mostly dealt with possible situational scenarios involving coworkers, safety issues and other issues that may arise. Answer using common sense of what you feel the best courses of action would be without overthinking it. Don't worry too much if you're uncertain of the best course on all the questions, because of how the test is structured. While the scenarios are slightly different, they are basically asking the same thing which helps those who may struggle with a few answers, but helps filter out those who may not really have a clue what the best course of action would be, so your answers should reflect what you believe to be correct.
    The following day, I received an invitation for an on-site interview which involved a brief instructional video of the hands on assessment that involves the slightest taste of the job you'll be doing. You'll be given a very small order to fill in which you'll have 15 minutes to complete. Of course, they are watching to see if you fill the order correctly and efficiently, but following instructions and safe working habits are equally as important. After the assessment, they ask if you'd like to continue with the hiring process without giving any indication on how well or poor you performed. They really shouldn't have to anyway, because you should already have an idea how you performed.
    In any event, they were very friendly and professional prior to and following the hands on assessment. During the assessment, however, to maintain fairness and equality, you'll find that even the Pepsi machines are warmer and more compassionate. Once they yell "Time", they immediately stepped back into their human form that you had held friendly conversations with just 15 minutes prior.
    The process for me is still ongoing as they evaluate everyone's results.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at PepsiCo.

    Interview

    Had a phone interview and then attended a video conference that was required. Phone interview was very straight forward and what you would expect. Video conference was 15+ people listening to 4 employees talk about their roles and the company. It was very interesting, but with so many people it wasn't interviewing more just listening.

    Manufacturing Operations Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Modesto, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at PepsiCo (Modesto, CA) in December 2016.

    Interview

    I met the HR representative at an info-session on campus and gave her my resume. I applied online then sent her an email with my candidate reference number and resume again and she set up a skype interview with the Senior Director of Operations the same week. The interview was very laid back and my interviewer started out by talking about his background to ease the initial tension. He was really interested in what I had to say, and I think what really got me the offer was that I was well-prepared with stories and my reason for choosing PepsiCo was very genuine. I got the offer within 1 hour of the interview.
