    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at PepsiCo (Plano, TX) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Process took about two months including the Christmas holidays. The interview process was simple and very well structured. After talking with the internal recruiter, I did a phone screen with the hiring manager and an employee. Then I was asked in for a face-to-face interview with the same people, plus one. The interview was very relaxed and I felt very comfortable throughout the whole process.

    Retail Merchandiser Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Ocala, FL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at PepsiCo (Ocala, FL) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Online tests. in person actual product shelving demonstration, then interview. I have recent retail merchandising experience and do strenuous physical activity several days a week. IMO and other female applicants, they discriminate against hiring females. Total and complete waste of time. Never buying Pepsi products again. I have strict rules about NOT supporting companies that don't hire me. Really liked the shop/warehouse employees seemed like a good cohesive employee group. As retail merchandizing goes, feel you would get more help and support than other jobs. This job has employees that only stay 3 to five years because it is hard work.

    Interview Questions

    • Asked if I had a smart phone. Pepsi is supposed to provide them for the job but said they have budgetary issues.Total red flag. RUN!   Answer Question

    Interview

    On line application and ability assessment (about an hour). Automated phone interview (about 20 minutes). Job was posted on Wednesday, Two days later received notification that position was being eliminated. What???? Thanks for posting a job, wasting applicants time with extensive application process, then deciding to eliminate job, all within a few days. A poor representation of the company and inept human resources department.

    RSR Route Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at PepsiCo (Los Angeles, CA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Called in with a large group for informational session about company and job. Question and answers followed presentation. After Q & A individual interviews took place, with very basic STAR formatted questions. Also took copies of DMV records & Driver's license prior to interviews. (by doing this they are bypassing age discrimination laws! It is quite obvious they are looking for young people to fill these positions) I have extensive experience in the retail/DSD space & am quite sure I was passes due to my age!
    Just wish I would have not wasted my time with this process as they had no intentions of giving me a shot.
