Marketing Interview

Marketing

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at PepsiCo in January 2010.

Interview Details The interview process was shady. The interviews already knew that they were going to hire someone from the inside but had myself and one other candidate interview and told us both that each of us had strengths and weakness and we were both liked. In the end they chose a candidate from another dept.

Interview Question – Do I have experience in areas in which I already hold a degree (Bachelors and Masters)   Answer Question

Maintenance Interview Interview

Maintenance Interview
Tucker, GA (US)

I applied online - interviewed at PepsiCo in June 2014.

Interview Details Two person Interview, On Line "skills assessment test" more of a personality, Basic comprehension, and math skills test, Why do you want to work for Pepsi, Where do you see yourself in five years, This can be a high pressure demanding position, Describe how you have dealt with that in a past experience, or describe a previous similar situation! Draw a standard Motor controller circuit, How would you align Three pulley on separate shafts, How would you troubleshoot a VFD conveyer system, Still in process but Hopeful, sounds like a great Opportunity, sounds like a good learning Opportunity, people seemed like they would be Good to work for, Knowledgeable, and diligent, Left a strong Implication that there would be routine Overtime, Often and expected, Company comes first situation, Understandable in a Maintenance environment since the equipment must run for anyone to work, and you don't make money or product when the line is down! Implied that there would be future Upgrades, and replacing older equipment, so Much to learn, Long Hours inevitable! Sounds exciting exhilarating and demanding! Pay seemed more than fair, looking forward to call back!

Interview Question – They askes several times if I had any questions for them? I did extensive reserch Online, prior, So I did not. But I fear the fact that I did NOT, may reflect lack of interest, which is NOT the case, Fact is I already found out all I needed to know to be interested in the position!   Answer Question

Supply Chain Associate Interview

Supply Chain Associate

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

Interview Details 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.

Interview Question – When and why would you use regression analysis?   Answer Question

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