    I have been working at Pepsi Bottling part-time

    Pros

    During my time at Pepsi, I've had a pleasant experience. I've been able to learn many things and they were able to work with my school schedule.

    Cons

    Other than the normal wear and tear on my body, it seemed kind of difficult to be promoted. Managers sometimes tend to do whatever it takes to please a customer, sometimes at the expense of their own employees. Now I do believe customer service is key and is the number one priority, but when it is at the expense of your employees and their families, it becomes unnecessary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better promotion system. Focus on employees, which are the backbone of the company

    Former Employee - Warehouse Worker in Nashville, TN

    I worked at Pepsi Bottling as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Okay pay, supposedley a good company

    Cons

    Needs to get with the times, I would have thought that they would have a scanner system ed warehouse, it was like a tornado some days, just piling product into limited space. FIFO was not used at all. Managers were there because of their education, not because background in doing the job. Good old boy system there, most were afraid of a experienced worker, not wanting to properly train or suggest future job opportunities with Pepsi.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Revamp your hiring practices, employ people who want to work for you. You will gain more from someone who loves what they do. Than from someone who's just doing it for a check.
