I have been working at Pepsi MidAmerica

Pros

The best part about working for Pepsi MidAmerica is the fact that the company is such a well-developed trademark and is admired by most of the other companies. The work is pressureless and the schedule is made by you. You do not have someone breathing over your neck telling you what to do.

Cons

The management never lets you know what to do, while getting upset when you do something "that is not in the job description." You determine your own schedule, but they can tell you to travel to different towns to do extra work whenever they feel necessary. Yea

    I have been working at Pepsi MidAmerica (less than a year)

    Pros

    Pay was better than an average 9-5 job. Setting your own hours & working without direct supervision is a plus.

    Cons

    Advice from middle management was to be more of a "dick" to customers. Unable to get customers their orders until days later. Poor equipment, my truck caught on fire while I was driving down the road. Nothing matters other than money, no one cares about anyone on an individual level. Working 12 hrs a day with no overtime simply was not going to cut it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give a crap about your employees rather than view them as slaves.

    I have been working at Pepsi MidAmerica

    Pros

    paid weekly
    lots of independence as a sales rep and asm

    Cons

    health insurance was expensive
    one week of vacation after one year worked(all summer blacked out)
    retirement was non-existent
    company would payroll deduct route sales employees up to $150 a week for shortages
    large amount of turnover

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is a lot of waste in the company and the training program was ineffective. Shipping needs to ship what was actually ordered and not what ever is easiest for them to load. Payroll deductions need to stop until a system is in place that actually holds shipping accountable. This will lead to less turnover in route sales and in most cases the employee does not give consent to be deducted (which in Illinois is against the law). This will also lead to an increase in sales because of less turnover.
