    Pros

    Good benefits, good money, great company. Weekends off and the product sales for itself.

    Cons

    Work hours could be long, some stress. Sometimes managers are a little to pushy but I guess its part of their job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More incentives to employees, show more appreciation to those that go an extra mile for things to go better.

    I worked at Pepsi Bottling

    Pros

    Benefits are ok and you get to meet a variety of people. Management is always interested in exactly what you're doing if you're in sales.

    Cons

    The harder you work the less you're appreciated. Management will cater to certain accounts and let the sales rep look like a fool in others.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take more true interest in all accounts. Quit making sales reps break their backs to meet unreasonable goals.
