    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at PepsiCo (Salinas, CA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    The phone screen process is the dumbest thing I've ever had to do. You answer a series of questions on a recorded line. The questions aren't something you can prepare for. I would much rather talk to a real person rather than leave a 10 min voicemail answering questions. It's unrealistic and there's no point to it. It's MUCH more than just a "phone screen" it's a real interview with a voicemail machine. I guess we'll see how I did in a few days

    A month long process: pre-screen, phone interview, group interview, drug and background check and if everything comes back clear then an offer letter. One goes to the employers specific hiring website and answer 25 questions to help determine if your are a candidate I or candidate II. Based on your answers, it will determine specific understanding for the basic duties of the job. There is at least two face to face group interviews and its very time consuming.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at PepsiCo (Raleigh, NC) in August 2013.

    The hiring process begin by taking a lengthy online assessment. Questions ranged from what type of employee would you be if hired, to integrity type questions as what you would do in unethical situations. Also you have to take a math test with fractions, basic math questions and figures. I was then contacted by a Driver manager. It was stressed that the hours would be long and tedious and there would be holiday work to which i indicated was no issue. i was then told i would have to do a voluntary route ride, to see if i wanted to still pursue. i did the route ride on a saturday got there at 5am and done at after 3 pm, Temperatures inside the truck, which was in horrible condition reached 104 degrees, no wiper blades,and a hole in exhaust pipe made it a very loud and uncomfortable ride but the driver was very helpful and answered all my questions. i still decided to pursue because the beginning and potential salary was very enticing. he showed me his commission statement in which he had made 1300 the previous week. i was still interested and called in for an interview that tuesday. met with 6 regional hiring managers who again asked questions about my current job and ethics questions. i felt i had a good interview but received a letter in the mail 3 days later saying they wanted someone with more route sales experience
