1. How is Suntory PepsiCo Management Trainee Program different from other training programs?
Suntory PepsiCo Management Trainee Program offers long-term career progression into our management team, not just a job. This is demonstrated by intensive training and development programs including the Core Management Trainee Program, Individual Development Program and Leadership Development Program. Accordingly, the duration of our program was changed from 18 months to 36 months (3 years) in 2011 with the objective of providing a longer career roadmap for Management Trainees, enabling them to take managerial positions at the end of the program. And it doesn't stop there. If you continually deliver results both internally and externally, and prove your leadership potential, there is further opportunity for the next level of leadership development. The fact that many of our Management Trainees from previous years now hold key managerial positions in our business, is testament to our commitment.
