Interview

Applied on line , went through the process of the job session where hiring manager explains job description , salary, and interview process. Did the drive along first then a 20-30 minute interview five days later. Asked about my background experience ,knowledge, and skills. Was told after interview that I may get a call a week later if they find interest in me or a refusal letter. Two hour later I got a call to meet with the district sales manager in 5 days. Don't know if this is a good sign but will be ready for the next step . Best is to practice and research company you are looking for and memorize best answers of questions they may throw at you.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at PepsiCo (West Palm Beach, FL (US)) in November 2014.

    Interview

    Went for initial interview with 8 other candidates at the West Palm Beach office. First there was a presentation about the company and then we had our initial interviews with 2 different managers. One week later was called in to do a ride along. Everything went great. One week later was called in for the another set of interviews. It was at this point that I realized that I would not be getting the job because I was white. Both the hiring managers; Stan and Al, were African American and their interview questions made me realize that they did not like white men.

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at PepsiCo (La Mirada, CA (US)).

    Interview

    The process is long and difficult but for a reason. It starts with a prescreening online, then they invite you to fill out an app with a current DMV printout and schedule a full day ride along with an RSR to give you an idea of what you're getting into. then there's a couple more interviews before you're given the go ahead.
