    Frito Lay Route Sales

    Route Sales Representative (Current Employee) Kansas City, MO

    ProsEasy job. Route bid at 53,000. Easy to grow routes if u follow behind lazy people and there are many. Consistently make over 73k and up to 78k. Company does cut routes and u must grow accounts again or u might drop back down into the 50's. Free shirts, royals tickets, chiefs tickets. Benefits are good! 401k, pension (not available for new employees anymore), vacation.

    ConsEarly starts and route cuts. Company received Herman Lay award (most prestigious). Rsrs received jacket and management got trip to Cancun, Las Vegas and some a trip to Fiesta Bowl. However, if u want to be part of management , u can apply anytime so stop complaining. Many people have hard time with management getting rewards.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Marketing: Great to build a resume

    Marketing Manager (Current Employee) Albany, NY

    ProsGreat company to build a resume, network and learn fundamentals. Ability to work on national brands as well on innovations.

    ConsNorth America business always under fire. Morale is negatively impacted. I question if salaries and benefits are competitive enough to maintain talented newcomers as well as seasoned producers.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe realistic on work life balance offerings and support. Senior management must lead by example.

    Good place to work!

    Full Time Merchandiser (Former Employee) Aliso Viejo, CA

    ProsHigh energy company with good benefits. Must be ready to hustle the whole day long. Good place for younger people to learn the value of hard work.

    ConsThe entry level positions require hard physical work in the delivery side. The merchandiser job is labor intensive, with hours spent in walk in coolers.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake more time to advise new employee's of future growth opportunities.

    Fun Place to Work

    Talent Acquisition (Current Employee) Plano, TX

    ProsCollaborative work environment, management helps with career growth by delegating project work and teaming you up with a mentor. Work life balance and employee resource groups are viewed as a must by all employees and management. Starbucks and Gym on site at FLNA HQ.

    ConsLong hours at times, Cafeteria food - bland and cost is too high, building needs a remodel.
