    I worked at Pepsi Bottling as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Okay pay, supposedley a good company

    Cons

    Needs to get with the times, I would have thought that they would have a scanner system ed warehouse, it was like a tornado some days, just piling product into limited space. FIFO was not used at all. Managers were there because of their education, not because background in doing the job. Good old boy system there, most were afraid of a experienced worker, not wanting to properly train or suggest future job opportunities with Pepsi.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Revamp your hiring practices, employ people who want to work for you. You will gain more from someone who loves what they do. Than from someone who's just doing it for a check.

    I worked at Pepsi Bottling

    Pros

    Nothing comes to mind. This place was a joke. Poor management and poor HR equals disaster.

    Cons

    HR was the most crooked bunch I've ever been around. She has ruined many peoples lives because she only follows her agenda.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the great leaders and stop letting HR run the company.

    I have been working at Pepsi Bottling full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Knowledgeable and experienced coworkers with a solid work ethic and genuine passion for the business. Reachable sales goals. Decent pay.

    Cons

    Devil-may-care training process. Inexperienced and young management. Multinational company run like a mom and pop store. Shady compensation system. Low accountability for all areas except sales.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your frontline. They have more experience and have demonstrated more loyalty to this company than the vast majority of your lower and middle management. It would also go a long way to the health of your business if you opened up some tangible avenues of promotion instead of favoring college hires from such prestigious institutions as Chico State.

    Pros

    Pay is fair, $17 an hour seems great at first but not worth the stress. Some co-workers are very nice and supportive. No gossipy environment because you work on your own.

    Cons

    Management could not care less about employees, you are worked like a slave. Forced overtime. 12 hour days are common. You will wake up at the crack of dawn, work 6am-6pm, come home, pass out. No work/life balance. Physical injuries are common. I am a small girl forced to pull pallets and lift heavy cases above my head. You ruin your car driving all around.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care about your employees, their health safety and personal lives.

    Pros

    decent pay and benefits, work on your own

    Cons

    management is clueless and switches up every couple of years, not really into customer service as far as drivers and merchandisers are concerned

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    try staying in your position for more than a year before moving on

    Pros

    Potential for earnings is good if you are "one of the guys".

    Cons

    Being female in a warehouse, you and your work get over looked. It's a "good old boys network". It's not what you know, it's who you know!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advance people based on knowledge and work ethic. Create a system to RECOGNIZE whose actually adding the value, not who's taking credit for it. There are a lot of credit grabbers in this company. I'm shocked! Also, when an employee emails a senior human resource manager when there isn't one at the location where you work, that person should at least reply. Ridiculous! Do I have to contact corporate to get information?
