Easy Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at PepsiCo (Greenville, SC) in May 2014.

Interview

One day in person interview. easy because I was already associated with football. I was in a room with some other candidates and we all got a chance to talk about our sales rep experience and how we could lead the team of sales reps if we needed to.

    Application

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

    Interview

    I applied online and got an email to complete an online assessment the very next day. A week after completing the assessment I was scheduled for a phone interview which then led to a face to face interview a couple weeks later. The face to face interview consisted of basic behavioral questions and questions regarding my resume. The whole interview lasted about 30 min. I was then contacted a few days later with a job offer.

    • How would you react to a manager who was a "total jerk"?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I was told it was a standard salary that was not negotiable.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at PepsiCo in January 2014.

    Interview

    Very friendly. Very casual. Interviewer took time to listen to answers and ask secondary questions off my answers. I never felt nervous about my answers and I never felt like the interviewer was trying to trip me up. I felt the interview process was very fair and allowed me to sell myself past what was already on my resume.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at PepsiCo.

    Interview

    Interviewed on college campus during career fair, after that, if they liked you they sent you to Pittsburgh for a 2-day interviewing process. A lot of socializing the first night and a panel. Second day you are basically in a group of 6-8 people the whole time doing case studies. You also do individual interviews during the second day. It's all about leadership and they are looking for something very specific.

    Interview Questions

    • There weren't any "difficult" or "unexpected" questions. Possibly the sales scenario was the most difficult. Literally act as if you are selling someone something, not at an interview.   Answer Question

    Interview

    Met with Pepsico through campus recruiting. Then I had an on campus interview. Then they flew me out for a final round interview with Senior Leaders of the company. For the final round interview, they had me prepare for four different interviews. One was a classic interview i.e. "Why are you the best candidate for the job?". Another one was a sales scenario where I had to role play. Another one was a case study that demonstrated how I handle multiple problems at once. The last one was where they projected my resume onto a screen and told me to sell myself in 30 minutes.

    Interview Questions

    • They throw curve balls in the case study. i.e "So you have three places to be tomorrow. You can't go to all of these places because they are too far from each other. Who do you tell that you can't serve and why?"   Answer Question
