    Interview

    The interviewers came to campus in a group and held an info session. It was mostly networking, but very helpful to meet the interviewers before the interviews. The next day, I had and an interview with two of the interviewers at once. I was then given a verbal offer the same day.

    Merchandiser Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at PepsiCo (Burnsville, MN (US)) in June 2020.

    Interview

    After taking the online assessment and scheduling an in person interview, you are shown a short video describing the physical assessment, which consists of moving 2 Litre plastic packs with 8 bottles from one pallet to another, then moving your pallet approximately 20 feet with a pallet jack to build a display. The display is 4 2-litre units high and four units wide, and six deep. They give you a page with an initial layout and have you fill up the pallet, then as you're filling up the display they give you a different layout to "switch things up", and you have to build the display accordingly. Definitely one of the most corporate interview processes I have experienced. My interviewer seemed detached from the whole process, the physical portion of the process was not set up the way their own on boarding packets described it as, and the bottles were filthy from the many times it had been previously used, which was especially discouraging due to the covid-19 epidemic. I declined an offer for another merch position closer to where I live that pays a little less, but especially after seeing how lax their sanitation procedures seem to be I didn't want to take the risk. If they can't be bothered to reduce your risk as a potential hire, I can't imagine they'll be doing much more for you as an employee.

    Analyst Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at PepsiCo.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter at Pepsi approximately a week after submitting an application for a position. I was then asked to phone screen a couple of days later. The phone screen was rescheduled due to conflicts on the recruiter's side. I then spoke with the recruiter a couple of days after that. She asked me general screening questions. I was then invited to interview with the hiring manager that same day. I was very disappointed in this interview. PepsiCo touts itself on using research based methods to make the most informed business decisions. The hiring manager asked me ONE question during the interview, and then proceeded to describe the role in further depth for around an hour. Structured interviews have been proven to be the most effective in determining which candidate was most qualified for the role. A structured interview WAS NOT used in this case, which means the team made a hiring decision that was not based upon skills and abilities necessary for performing the role in the best capacity.

    Talent Acquisition Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    Applied on LinkedIn, a recruiter reached out a few days later, probably had 5-6 video interviews with various members of the team over the course of a few weeks. It probably took longer due to COVID, whereas if I came in person I could meet with everyone at once. Everyone was incredibly nice, the conversations were relaxed and I actually looked forward to each subsequent interview.

    Interview Questions

    • All pretty normal interview questions, it was more conversational than just question after question.   Answer Question
