    Researcher Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at PepsiCo (Purchase, NY) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I had phone interviews with HR and the hiring manager. Then traveled to the office to have a 30-minute interview with a team member. I was supposed to have other interviews in-person but they canceled. Not sure why my travel was needed. Never heard back within the stated timeframe and emailed about the status to learn I was not offered the job. The recruiter never spoke to me again throughout the process and reimbursement messed up so I had to pay for part of my interview expenses and wait to be reimbursed. Overall, the interview was disorganized and I was not impressed with the process. It appeared everyone I spoke to had a different opinion of what the job was going to be, which was a major concern.

    Human Resources Specialist Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at PepsiCo (Purchase, NY).

    Interview

    Was contacted by an external recruiter who asked few questions about my experience. There was no phone interview, was brought in for onsite interviews in Purchase. First interviewed with two people I'd be directly reporting to and then another Director in the same department followed by the department VP. Closed out with a brief HR talk. The recruiter called me two days later with an offer which was subject to passing a drug test.

    Please note, this took place over 7 yrs ago. I worked for PepsiCo and have since gone on to start my own business which, sadly, isn't on Glassdoor just yet. But I have to submit a review to keep my membership so I apologize if this isn't indicative of PepsiCo's current interviewing process. Although they're a pretty traditional company so I wouldn't be surprised if that part didn't change.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at PepsiCo (Purchase, NY) in April 2016.

    Interview

    I interviewed over the phone with Pepsi Co. for over two months. I had applied for a full time role in HR and was told that this is what I was being considered for. Then two months into the interview process, an employee calls me up and offers me a job as a contractor. I told them that throughout the process I was told I was interviewing for a full time role. They said that the truth was that I was never being considered for the full time role, they just lied and told me that because they knew I would back out of the process if I knew it was a contract role. I wasted two months of my time in my tedious job search on this company. I was lied and deceived by them the whole time. The people who worked there were so arrogant and cocky. One woman said that she supported her whole family on Pepsi Co. and that her husband didn’t even have to work because of how much money she makes. Another woman said that Pepsi Co. only hires the best people like herself and that she gets recruited by other companies all the time. Keep in mind that during the interview she had her feet up on the desk the whole time while she was talking to me. Then this other guy there, said that anyone would be honored to work at Pepsi Co. even for a contract role with no benefits because, “just to have that name on your resume is an honor and a privilege.” How is that going to help me when I need benefits and a full time job? Do yourself a favor and don’t waste your time with this corporate evil!

    Interview

    One 30 minute interview after a resume screen. I am currently waiting for next steps for the final interview.
    The lady was very nice and an expert in my field. She described the internship, asked me 2 questions, probed for details, and I had time to ask questions at the end. She did ask for me to explain how I would do things differently than what I answered that I did and to explain how I would have done them differently.
