    Terrible training, unethical practices, and illegal all around.

    Former Employee - Anonymous

    I worked at Pepsi MidAmerica full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Meeting hundreds of new people/employees who come and go.

    Knowing this information first hand to tell friends not to work there unless they want to be treated like dirt.

    Cons

    They won't hire you with a felony - don't waste your time. They discriminate against: people with misdemeanors, single females, single moms, people with dreads, older people, people of religions other than Christian or Catholic, if you have been a teacher, cop, psychologist, counselor, preacher need not apply - you won't be hired.

     If you want a raise- you won't get one, you probably won't get an evaluation, you may not even get your paycheck, and if you stay too long you might lose any sense of moral, ethical, and ounce of goodness in yourself.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take HR and Business Ethics classes you might learn what you do is illegal and unethical. To some: time to retire... H.C. and J.R. it's 2014 not 1914.

    I worked at Pepsi MidAmerica full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I found one pro. long hours and decent pay.

    Cons

    where 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 ManagementAdvice

    BE GOOD PEOPLE NOT JERKS and treat the workers with respect. Same goes for owners.

    Pros

    nice 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 .

    Cons

    they 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I worked at Pepsi MidAmerica full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Ownership 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 ManagementAdvice

    Just 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.

    Pros

    My 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.

    Cons

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

    I worked at Pepsi MidAmerica full-time

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Low 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 ManagementAdvice

    They wont take advice, so its not worth putting anything

    Pros

    There are literally no pros.

    Cons

    Racist 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 ManagementAdvice

    Train employees, fix equipment, get rid of the hard drug users, start valuing employees.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    I 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Everything. 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 ManagementAdvice

    Sell the company to Pepsico.
