    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at PepsiCo (Winchester, VA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Online test. Was contacted for phone interview. Had to go through an automated machine that forced me to set the "first available appointment" which was almost 3 full weeks in the future. I thought that was very odd, but set the appointment for 9AM today. Rearranged my schedule so that I was available at that time. 9AM came, 9:15 came, 9:30 came - 10AM came. Not only did I not get a phone call, I didn't get an e-mail or any explanation - or apology - just nothing. What an absolutely HORRIBLE way to run a company. From reading the rest of the reviews, I guess this is par for the course for Frito-Lay/Pepsico. Leaves a really horrible impression of the company and you can bet I'll switch brands from now on. So not only did they lose the opportunity to have a great employee, they also lost my business, my family's business and you can bet I will share this experience with everyone each time their name or products comes up. Pepsico - here's some free advice: ETHICAL COMPANIES only schedule the amount of interviews that the local representative can actually accommodate. If an outstanding candidate is found early in the process, then the VERY LEAST you can do is to notify the other candidates that their interviews have been cancelled. Quit hiding behind an automated system. There are REAL people out here and your inability to run your hiring process ethically has REAL consequences.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at PepsiCo in March 2016.

    Interview

    Long interview process. Short phone calls, contacted by many different people. Phone interview about 30 minutes. A ride along. Hair follicle drug test. Overall fairly easy process, sometimes confusing when you are being contacted by too many different people. Ride along began at 4 am which lasted a few hours.

    It was ridiculous I went to 4 interviews a full unpaid day with the route driver and 170 mile round trip to the home office so the girl could go over the company web site, you're not all that and a bag of potato chips? I almost lost my current job jacking with these people, and in the end, yea I didn't get it and I know I was very qualified for it!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at PepsiCo (Rancho Cucamonga, CA) in November 2015.

    Interview

    Took extensive online test/screen,conducted successful phone screen. DMs stated they didn't know how many positions were open & they were just there because they were available, Was informed I would hear within 2 weeks. Still have heard nothing. I am very confident I was passed on because of my age, as I have a wealth of experience and am probably better off not getting the position for the peanuts they were paying.
