    Turn and Burn

    Maintenance Manager (Former Employee)
    Burnsville, MN

    ProsGood location and they paid for relocation. Good benefits offering on site nursey, contiuned learning and community involvement.

    ConsTurn over of managers I was the 5th person in my job in 10 years. The union has the upper hand at this site due to the amount of manager turn over. in my time with Pepsi we had two different QC manager and they have had two more sense I left, my boss (plant manager) changed 4 times in the 5 years I was there, we had 3 different production manages and changed warhouse managers 3 or 4 times. Difficult to get everyone on the same page with no consitant leadership.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAsseble to good team for x years, help them support them in holding the people accountable. Do not continue to bring people back that have been terminated it makes management look week and provides the union with more power.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Being a merchandiser sucks

    Merchandiser (Former Employee)
    Kearny, NJ

    ProsIndependence, visiting cities and towns one normally wouldn't, meeting new people daily.

    ConsPoor management, favoritism and nepotism rule, the union sucks, you usue your own car, constant pay check errors, intense physical labor, poor compensation for the work being done.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFire and rehire.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Merchandiser

    Merchandiser (Former Employee)
    Utica, NY

    ProsDecent starting pay, good benefits from day one, autonomy for the most part.

    ConsMisled when hired. I was told the job was full-time with benefits and would have to join the Union in 90 days. By 88th day was let go. Although they gave a false reason,ultimately I discovered this is how they fill their temp/summer help every year.
    Additionally, your start times very from 1 am to 9 am. You are supposed to get/take lunches and breaks, but there is no way you can without your manager calling and harping about not being at or having your next store displayed.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe upfront about hiring practices.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    uphill, all the time

    RSR Route Sales Representative (Former Employee)
    Louisville, KY

    Prosthe anonymity in the world is a plus, and the pay is a solid dividend.

    Consexpectations are not realistic for anyone.
    goals are made arbitrarily, and are enforced by management who are least likely to help you to obtain them.
    you are made to feel like 50-60 hrs a week just isnt enough, and that you should do more to help 'the team'.

    Advice to Senior Managementto lead, you need leaders.
    your management core at the dc level seems to lack depth in this category.
    analytics don't drive your people, nor do they drive the market at the consumer level.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
