PepsiCo Wonderlic Cognitive Ability Test

The Wonderlic Personnel Test, also known as the Wonderlic Cognitive Ability Test, is the most popular among the Wonderlic tests. It is used in many industries for pre-employment selection and is designed to assess an applicant's ability to learn, adapt, solve problems, and understand instructions.

The two cognitive ability tests are the Wonderlic Personnel Test-Quicktest (WPT-Q) and the Wonderlic Personnel Test-Revised (WPT-R).

Wonderlic Personnel Test-Quicktest (WPT-Q)

The Wonderlic Personnel Test-Quicktest (WPT-Q), previously known as the Wonderlic Cognitive Ability Pretest, is a short version of the WPT. Typically, you will encounter this version as part of a preliminary step in the application process. However, in some instances, it will determine your chances of progressing to the next step, while in other scenarios, it may only serve as an orientation test. The online and unprotected test consists of 30 questions which are to be completed within the 8-minute time limit.

Wonderlic Personnel Test-Revised (WPT-R)

The Wonderlic Personnel Test-Revised is also known as the Contemporary Cognitive Ability Test. This test has 50 questions which are to be completed within 12 minutes. With just over 14 seconds per question, the WPT-R requires strong analytic skills, quick response times, and good decision-making. It is used mainly in job selection and admissions processes. It is supervised and can be taken in hard copy and online versions.

PepsiCo Hiring Process

The PepsiCo hiring process begins with a CandidateCare applicant tracking system (ATS). CandidateCare is used to screen your application/questionnaire, resume, CV, and cover letter. This applicant tracking system assesses your answers and documents for keyword-specific phrases. Therefore, in order to have your paperwork successfully move forward in the hiring process, you want to be sure that your answers and documents properly align with the job description. Learn more about applicant tracking systems and how to beat them with our dedicated ATS page.

Once your application is complete, depending on the job position, you will encounter various pre-employment assessment tests (outlined below).

If your application is successful and you pass the assessments, you may be called for a telephone interview. If you are deemed as a promising candidate, then in-person and panel interviews will be coordinated. Be sure to review and practice for all types of interviews with our Interview PrepPack.
