Overall a great experience and everyone was very nice and down to earth.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at PepsiCo (York, PA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    I went into a room of 6 current employees where they explained the company and job title. Then I went into two separate interviews with 3 people each that lasted about 45 minutes each. All of the questions were about leadership and how/why you can manage a team of employees. I thought the interview went really well but did not get the offer in the end.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at PepsiCo (Austin, TX) in September 2015.

    Interview

    Got an in-person interview about 2 weeks after I applied online and through my university. Very friendly interviewers: one was a recruiter and one was a senior hiring manager. Asked basic behavioral questions and then some more particular to management roles/experiences. The interview was delayed by approximately 40 minutes, but I didn't mind too much - you have to understand sometimes things run late due to factors out of your control, but you just have to make the best of the situation at hand. Another interview (pre-screen phone interview) was offered to me about 10 days after my in-person interview.

    Interview was conducted on my University Campus with 2 other supply chain managers. I received the interview offer through my university career fair.

The questions are based around management experiences.

    Interview

    Was recruited at a school career fair. Interview was very casual, although that might not be the case for everyone. The individual interviewing me was the director for logistics and only asked me two questions: "What are you hobbies?" and "What would your professors tell me about you?". The rest of the interview was a casual conversation about what he does and my experiences.
    Promptly received an invitation for a final round interview the next morning.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at PepsiCo.

    Interview

    Met representatives at a college campus information session, everybody who attended was granted an interview. First interview was on campus, two PepsiCo associates that asked behavioral questions (biggest achievement, strengths and weaknesses, working in a team, etc.), pretty low key. I received a call about a week later and my next interview was on-site.

    Went on-site and had a panel interview with four employees, more behavioral questions but some technical about LSS.

    Negotiation

    Tried to negotiate, they didn't budge even though I had another offer that had a higher salary.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at PepsiCo (Burnsville, MN) in February 2013.

    Interview

    The initial Communication after I first sent them my resume was pretty poor. It took a couple weeks before I received any type of confirmation that my resume had been received. When I did receive confirmation, they were quick to offer me an interview, which I gladly accepted. The interview process was pretty quick and easy. They had a two part interview set up, the first of which was with their Product Availability Supervisor (PAS), and Product Availability Manager (PAM). The second was with the Warehouse Manager and another Supervisor. Each interview had a lot of situation / what if questions. I felt very good about the interview when I left and I new I would get the job even though one of the managers seemed very worried about by me being in the Marine Corps and how much time it would take away from the business. It took them forever to make their decision. I received a call about two months later with a job offer, I initially told them I would need a couple days to think about the offer which they allowed for, I accepted the offer two days later.

    Interview Questions

    • Who would you place more of your time and or loyalty towards if a conflict of scheduling or career advancement came about, Pepsi or the Marine Corps.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    There wasn't a whole lot of negotiation with the offer they gave me, as I was fairly happy with the offer, especially since it wasn't a straight salary, I would be overtime eligible.
