    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at PepsiCo (Tampa, FL) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Timely online test - be prepared to be exhausted by the amount of questions thrown at you, informational meeting to describe position and salary which is used apparently to weed out applicants by information overload and promises of overworking and no home life, same day first interview to be offered to route ride and work with a driver to rotate his stress dated product due to overselling accounts to make plan and then not to get paid for the whole day, second interview scheduled if interested. offer of job.What was I thinking...that's right I turned it down. 3 a.m. start times and staggered days off. I should be in management there to reorganize the system and advocate for the guys working for frito-lay's profit margin and budget. They forgot about work life balance for them

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at PepsiCo (Aston, PA).

    Interview

    You were interviewed the day you applied for the job by all 5 District Managers who worked at that particular plant and then you were notified later if you would be getting a second interview. At that point you can pretty much tell if you have a chance or not. The Managers are very down to earth people most appear to be just out of college. Everyone at Frito Lay must start at the bottom and learn the basics of Route Sales and delivery.

    Interview Questions

    • If you just arrived home after a long day at work and you were contacted by a fellow employee who had an issue and asked for your help solving it which required you to drive to the location and spend a few hours helping that individual dove his/her problem what would you do

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at PepsiCo (Lorton, VA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Let me start by saying that this is a long process. From the moment I applied online it took a little over 2 months for me to actually start. It started as an online application, then a scheduled phone interview which was essentially reviewing your resume and relating it to the job you are applying for, then there was an in person interview with the sales coordinator and market leader. My interview was 1:1 but I've read that others have had group panel interviews. I was offered a position and sent for a DOT physical and urine screening (others reported hair follicle test). Each interview was roughly 20 minutes and was very professional and straight forward. There were roughly 6-7 simple questions in all and a good part of both interviews were spent trying to talk you out of the job (early mornings, lots of bending and lifting etc.) because the training seems lengthy and expensive for someone who isn't going to work out.

    I did make an observation that most RSRs at this location appear to be between 24-35, male, and in fairly decent shape.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at PepsiCo (Sylmar, CA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    First you take an online test. Then you're emailed an invitation to an info session which is basically a waste of time. The information you're given can be described to you in the interview. Why even have this step, especially since most people have jobs and need to take time off work to attend this unnecessary session. You're then given a phone interview which is very easy; you're basically asked if the pay and benefits are ok with you. Then you schedule a panel interview that's very impersonal; they read off a list of questions. I really don't like this type of interview because it really gives you the sense that the people who run this business are just robots with can't think for themselves that they have to read off a script. Then, if you pass the interview, they call you to schedule a ride along with an experienced rep. If you don't pass, they email you. Unnecessarily long process.

    Application

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

    Interview

    For me to actually get an interview, it really took a long time. But once they started the process it was pretty smooth. First phase was more like an informational type session with 10 or more people. Afterwards we split up into individual interviews. They don't specify but please wear a suit. Stand out and also be yourself. I interviewed with three managers that day and got my ride along scheduled as well. The ride along was great as well. The rep was very nice and informative. We started at 3 and got done about 1. During this phase please help out and ASK TONS OF QUESTIONS! When we got back the manager asked about my experience and I informed him that I was ready to move forward. Background was cleared, drug test was cleared, and now my start date is less than 3 days away. Great overall experience. Just make sure your job history is accurate for DOT.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at PepsiCo (Sacramento, CA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Interview took 5 hours total time. Not all 5 hours you are being interviewed. It felt like bulk interview. All the candidates are in a room and they give us a presentation on the company then people asked questions and then they took you in a few at a time to do a separate one on one interview or a panel interview. If you pass the first round (panel or one on one) you get to do the second interview which is opposite of the first round...aka if you had panel the first round you will have the one on one the second round.

    Application

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

    Interview

    I got an interview through campus recruiting. The entire interview was about a half hour long, and the woman was very nice. The questions weren't too hard just asked about previous experience and why I wanted to work in that industry. I followed up with her the next day, and she told me she had put in my name for a second round interview. I was then contacted about a month later about the second interview, but decided the job wasn't for me and declined.
