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:
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.
