Infrastructure Analyst Interview

Anonymous Employee
Reading, England

I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at PepsiCo in February 2010.

Interview Details A set series of questions were asked referencing my CV regarding illustrating how I'd shown an example of various traits they were looking for, e.g. Can you give an example of when you've had to stand up to authority and how you handled it?

There were 2 people from the department in the interview, one of whom asked questions the other simply made notes; however there was a hint of good cop-bad cop at one point with the note taker stepping in with followup questions and challenges to assess how the example given squared up to the questions asked.

Process Engineer Interview

Process Engineer
Leicester, England

I applied through college or university and the process took 3+ weeks - interviewed at PepsiCo in February 2010.

Interview Details I applied for the role, and had the first round interview at my University. There were two people interviewing and they spent time ensuring that I was comfortable. They asked quite a few questions (e.g. describe yourself in 5 words, describe a situation where you did something you regret). The 2nd round interview was a technical interview.

Sales Intern Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Theale, South East England, England

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at PepsiCo in March 2008.

Interview Details Informal and friendly, case presentation was under time pressure so a clear and organised mind is essential, back to back interviews again can put you under pressure. Not clear on what division you were going to be place in, good opportunities for rapid advancement and international mobility

Interview Question – Describe a time when you managed a culturally disperate team   Answer Question

District Sales Leader Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied through college or university and the process took 7 weeks - interviewed at PepsiCo in April 2014.

Interview Details I applied through my university's career services. I had a first interview on campus with HR and another manager. I then went on a route ride along and had a second interview on campus with a zone sales leader. I then went to Birmingham for a third interview with several directors. They took me to dinner, put me in a hotel and payed for everything. I ended up not being offered a position.

Interview Question – Tell me about a time you were leading a team and someone wasn't doing their part. What did you do about it?   Answer Question

Difficult Interview

Quality Control Supervisor Interview

Anonymous Employee
Johnstown, PA (US)

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at PepsiCo in October 2012.

Interview Details Went through a 3 round interview process for campus hire position. First was on-campus, second was at the large fair in Michigan, third was at the plant itself. Very thorough and very long. The on-campus was pretty simple/basic. However, the second interview was a 2-day ordeal. Many different interview styles.

Interview Question – Situational questions (in which you've never been in the situation) are very difficult to answer. Aka: how would you react this issue or this issue happening at the same time.   Answer Question
