    I have been working at PepsiCo full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    - decent pay (no pay raises though). pay is commisioning based and thus is based on your route's sales.
    - good benefits
    - great pay for summer students

    Cons

    - long days - 10-12hr days of constant work are quite normal
    - super early mornings, must work weekends/holidays
    - time off for personal problems is difficult to arrange
    - hard work takes its toll on the body, hard to balance work/life
    - managers are recruited mostly straight out of university therefore they're inexperienced and often times unable to give us support we need. Store managers do not take them seriously which negatively affects our performance/sales
    - almost impossible to get promoted to manager (DSL) if you are a man since the company now hires almost exclusively female managers straight from university
    - no other options for advancement in the company as the next step is DSL
    - expectations are too high and tasks are not acceptable to our stores (management doesn't help at all)
    - difficult to start working here as you need several years of seniority to get your own route. In the meantime you cover for people who go on holidays or do support work (as a result pay can be low, work days erratic)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - stop giving us more work to do for the same pay
    - get on a truck with us at least once a month to see first hand what we have to go through since you don't listen to us when we tell you in meetings
    - stop working us to the brink whilst talking about how to improve workplace happiness
    - go back to hiring managers by promoting successful sales representatives; do not hire 22yr olds straight out of the university classroom
