Interview Tips

Success at PepsiCo centers around three Leadership Imperatives:

  • Setting the Agenda
  • Taking Others with You
  • Doing it the Right Way

These Leadership Imperatives apply to all employees regardless of their position. During your interview, you will be asked to provide specific examples of your academic and professional accomplishments that are aligned with these Leadership Imperatives.

While we cannot disclose exactly what will be covered, we can provide a few helpful tips to apply during your interview:

Be Yourself

Not everyone can survive and thrive in every environment. This is why the overall fit between you and the organization is so important. The interview will give us both a chance to examine this fit and help to ensure a successful relationship. The interview will be most effective if you are yourself, speak with truth and candor and show your personality.

Know Our Business

Since PepsiCo is a consumer products company, we'll expect you to know a little about our products. In addition, we encourage you to become familiar with our industry, the challenges we face, and the competitive landscapes in which we operate. A great place to start is by reviewing PepsiCo's annual report. PepsiCo's corporate and divisional websites Frito-Lay, Quaker, Tropicana and Gatorade will also be helpful.
