    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at PepsiCo (Blacksburg, VA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I met them at the Business Horizons career fair at Virginia Tech. I was selected to interview with them a few weeks later. The interview was situational and asked 4-5 questions that basically all started with, "tell me about a time when..". The night before the interview, while they were in town, they had a mixer for all the interviewees. It was catered at a local bar and provided an opportunity to ask questions about employee's roles in a more casual setting.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at PepsiCo.

    Interview

    They asked a couple behavioral questions, and they asked me to elaborate on my resume. Friendly interviewers, I felt comfortable for most of the time. Behavioral questions were pretty standard from what I remember. I had two different phone interviews and one interview in person. Each phone interview lasted 45 minutes, and the one in person last 30 mins.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at PepsiCo (Detroit, MI).

    Interview

    The interview process seemed difficult prior to the actual day, given we had to prepare a sales pitch, interview, and resume presentation. However, upon arrival at the PepsiCo offices, the entire staff made you feel relaxed and ready to do your best. Overall, it was a great experience.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at PepsiCo (Knoxville, TN) in October 2015.

    Interview

    I met with a couple of their employees at my university fair. I had a great conversation and then went to the meet + greet event they had later on. I made sure to follow up with some of the people I had talked to earlier. I was instructed on how to apply via my school's website. I was accepted for a first interview, and it was very situation based. Tell me about a time that...(ContextActionResult) This was not very bad, but I had built up a rapport with the people who interviewed me earlier. I thought it went great,and then found out I was one 15 people chosen from all over the Mid-Atlantic to move to the next round. We all met at one of the Pepi Facilities, and had a two-day interview process. We went through what a normal day looks like on the job, and had a huge dinner and drinks, they wined and dined us. The next day each person selected for the final round of the interview had 4 separate interviews with different managers across the country. 2 of the interviews were behavioral, and then one was a sales pitch. We were given a scenario the day before, and we had to sell two of the managers a product. The other interview was another sheet we were given a list of a bunch of issues that had gone wrong on the job, and we had to figure out the best way to prioritize the day and explain why. It was a lot of work, and by the end of it everyone was ready to be done.
