    Refuse to pay

    Builder (Former Employee)

    ProsI found one pro. long hours and decent pay.

    Conswhere to begin. the owners get in employees faces and cuss them out. They dont train you for crap. your training consists of hey see what that guy is doing, do that. I went in to get my check waited 5 hours!! just to be told they weren't paying me, that they would mail it to me it would take 3-5 weeks warehouse for shipping and receiving is hot if it is 80*out side the temp in there is about 110-120* I wouldn't even recommend the job to a homeless guy. I wouldnt put anyone thru that.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBE GOOD PEOPLE NOT JERKS and treat the workers with respect. Same goes for owners.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    it was the most inexperience training company for training new employee of their job.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Marion, IL

    Prosnice office personal and some workers are truthful about the working conditions in the warehouse. they give some cold water to the workers on hot days .they also let you have damage product to drink free .

    Consthey do not work with new hires to train them on the job hire to do. stand around and wait for them to tell you to some other job not hire to do. long 12 hours days and a 3 day and 4 day weeks . no breaks only 30 mins lunch. no sit down to work at a computer.

    Advice to Senior Managementneed to get new management in warehouse to train a new employee on their job correctly. stop discrimating on disable people .

    Good resume builder for an entry level position but caught on to the faults real quick.

    Anonymous (Former Employee)
    Marion, IL

    ProsGood resume builder to start my business career. You meet a lot of people (probably due to a 50% turnover rate from last year).

    ConsHigh turnover rate. Low wages and long hours for sales and warehouse employees. Expect to work on a norm of 10 to 12 hour days on 'salary' in the sales department. Shipping can not build and load proper orders for delivery and sales can not make deliveries on time. Upper management says they welcome new ideas but never will follow through on any. All managers and hr and supervisors are brand new working less than a year there on average. If you last 2 years the saying goes its like 10 years at Pepsi.

    Cdl training program is a joke. They throw you with drivers who have maybe a year experience if that...to 'learn how to drive' and to help them deliver product to the stores and run a handheld. If you are hired with a cdl the sales dept will run you like a dog to make deliveries.

    Unless you are an executive...you are replaceable. There are on a norm 20 warm bodies in the hr office each day lookin for work and Pepsi takes pride in hiring as many as you can, but they don't care about employee morale or employee issues.

    If you are desperate for a job go to Pepsi...if you are looking to build a resume for about a year go to Pepsi...if you are actually looking for a respectable and ethical career....look elsewhere.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on making employee morale higher and address issues with shipping and sales and etc. Instead of firing employees and hiring more warm bodies each day.

    Or just sell the company to PepsiCo because they can run it better than the old greedy executives I'm sure.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Merchandiser (Current Employee)

    Conseverything here is horrible run

    The worst business atmosphere you can imagine.

    Vending Technician (Former Employee)
    Effingham, IL

    ProsI met and worked with alot of good people.Most of that is because their turnover is off the charts.

    ConsOwnership is my way or the hiway.They try to reinvent the wheel every day.Their business model is so flawed yet they never change.Management at local depot is full of yes men or they are demoted or fired.Equipment is broken unsafe and a joke for a company this size.Be prepared to have your boss do a 180 on your workday two hours into the day.This happens daily.A double standard for workload and pay is rampant.The lazier you are the easier they will go on you.The harder you work the more they dump on you.Labor laws are broken almost daily and they will threaten you with your job.Customers are hostile every stop you make because of decisions made above you.I've never heard of a workplace where new hires would last not even a full day.Harry Crisp has deep pockets thanks to his dads hard work had nothing to do with him far as i can see.Thats the only reason he's still in business.I would pass on the company its just a joke.

    Advice to Senior ManagementJust sell it off and do everyone that works for you now a favor.Your propaganda doesn't work anymore.Just go ask a c-store mgr or fast food mgr what they think of you.

    The people in my depot are excellent co-workers. The idiots in Marion, IL could learn a lot from them.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsMy co-workers and many of the customers on are route are genuinely good people. I also like that fact that I am not stuck in the same place day after day.

    ConsPay is terrible. Treatment of employees by the head honchos in Marion is terrible. The Crisp family are a bunch of crooks.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    They need shut down.

    Merchandiser (Current Employee)

    ProsThere are literally no pros.

    ConsRacist and drug using employees throughout the entire company. If my financial situation was better I would have left on the first day. The equipment is and the environment is unsafe and not up to code. The fact that they don't even train new employees makes it even more dangerous.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTrain employees, fix equipment, get rid of the hard drug users, start valuing employees.

    Stay away

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsIf you need an entry level job it is okay. Will work 40 hours per week.

    ConsLow pay, uncaring and arrogant executives. Insurance is expensive. Treat lower level employees like fodder. Care only about profit margins and believe that any employee can be replaced. Company leadership style is out of the 30's. Unsafe practices when it comes to shipping and DOT rules. Too much to write here. Unless your desperate, stay away

    Advice to Senior ManagementThey wont take advice, so its not worth putting anything

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Poor Treatment by Management, Prolific Violation of Human Rights

    Vending Technician (Former Employee)
    Marion, IL

    ProsFree parking for employees if you dont mind vandalism to your vehicle

    ConsI worked over 14 years at this company and was disrespected and harassed over a medical crisis of my family and caring for my parents. The company continued this despite my loyal commitment to company requirements.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRevamp your entire business model..it sucks. Dont harass your employees, that is if there are any left who want to continue working for you.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    The family that owns the company doesn't care about employees and treats them like cattle.

    Sales Representative (Current Employee)

    ProsI like my coworkers and have built some lasting relationships with them.

    ConsEverything. Horrible pay, benefits not worth having, and being yelled at over things that are the fault of senior management. The Crisp family thinks it's employees and customers are scum and treats them with contempt. Deliveries are never on time, workers are underpaid on their checks, and people are fired for no reason at all. I won't buy anything on credit because I have no job security.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSell the company to Pepsico.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
