    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at PepsiCo (Dayville, CT) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Met a representative at my college fair, spoke with him and was told to expect a call. Interviewers called about a week and a half later and immediately jumped into a phone interview. After the phone interview I was called in for an on site interview approximately two weeks later. Two weeks after that I received the decision.

    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    I first contacted Frito-Lay at an on campus career fair. After speaking with them at the fair I applied both on their website as well as on my university's career site. Once applied, within a week or two I received an on campus interview. The night before the interview an information session was held that I attended which detailed many of the job specifics.

    The next day I attended a 30min very typical interview (some behavioral questions, some industry related questions - i.e.. give an example of a process and have you improved it). After completing that interview I received a call inviting me to take part in the second round interview at their site in Killingly CT.

    The day on site consisted of an information session from 8:15-8:54, a plant tour 8:45-9:45, then 3 rounds of interviews with 3 different individuals in various management positions. I found these interview to actually be quite casual with the managers trying to get a feel for who I was and why I was there (obviously required HR questions were asked- again some behavioral, others similar to the process question).

    Finally I received a call the same day that i was going to receive an official offer the middle of the following week.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions were all very typical. Some behavioral questions and some industry questions- "Give a time where you improved a product or process and explain to me how"   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I did not negotiate. The offer was very good, with a great starting salary (65,000) and very good signing and relocation bonuses, being 2,500 and 5,000 respectively (withe the 5,000 relocation bonus being tax free)

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at PepsiCo (York, PA) in October 2013.

    Interview

    I spoke with an employee at a campus career fair and got an email the next day to have an on campus interview. The interview was very relaxed and not intimidating. It was more of a conversation and most of the questions were resume and behavioral. I got an email a few days after inviting me to the regional interview day in York, Pa. The event was fun and we got to tour the plant and meet more people at a dinner event. There were a series of two interviews which were also behavioral and resume based. Fun group of people but you have to make sure you are suited for a manufacturing type job and are prepared to spend time inside the plant.

    Interview Questions

    • As an engineering major, why would you prefer to have a leadership type job at Frito Lay as opposed to a more "engineering" job?   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at PepsiCo (Irving, TX) in October 2013.

    Interview

    Submitted resume through university career office. Had an on campus interview which was a typical behavioral interview and took about 45 minutes. A few days later I was invited to travel to Fort Worth for final round interviews at a plant.

    At the plan I had two interviews, each with two managers/directors. Both were behavioral interviews again, but this time there was a much bigger focus on leadership, managing people, and achieving results. In this job you are in charge of people and a section of the plant so those attributes are important.

    We also got a tour of the plant by one of the people who had this job. Looking at what he was doing and the plant overall, I realized that was not something I wanted to do with an engineering degree.

    Interview Questions

    • Do not remember the exact wording, but there was a questions about giving an example of a situation when you as a leader made a mistake that negatively affected others working around you or under you.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    Working in a plant, especially a snacks plant is a very unique experience. You have to be willing to get your hands dirty and run around a lot. I did not find myself doing that neither did I see any room for growth in this field. But everything else about the offer was great.
