    Pros

    Surrounded by talented and motivated people. I've worked several jobs in my life and PepsiCo is by far the best. They really care about their employees and the opportunities are there for the taking. You will have to be dedicated and work hard to achieve what you want in this company, but that is what makes success at PepsiCo feel so good. I have never been more excited to go to work or felt more at home in any other company than I do at PepsiCo.

    Cons

    The company is so big that it is sometimes easy to get lost in the maze of businesses, divisions, brands, and their various levels of management, but this is common in any large organization.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on the development of lower level employees. I have seen many move on to become phenomenon managers because of the coaching and development they were given early in their career at PepsiCo.

    Pros

    Freedom of not having someone always looking down your back. Good pay $15.25 an hour plus getting $.57 cents a mile for driving your own vehicle. Fairly good job for the pay. Working at your own pace is very nice. I recommend this job if you know what you are in for and if you fit to do the job.

    Cons

    When sales are good, the work days are long and sometimes feel like they are never ending when customers are buying a lot of product. Sometimes working 10-14 hours when it is very busy. Lots of hard work when you are in bigger busier stores. They expect a lot from you. You could work different days every week depending on the full timers vacation, off days and the weekly ads as well. Having to deal with angry customers when you currently out of a product at stores can sometimes be a pain too, that doesn't happen too often though.

    Advice to Management

    Better communication with the merchandisers. Making sure that they can handle the stores you assign to them and making sure that they get help when the days are busy. Having a better app for iPhone I think would benefit greatly. The app isn't bad and does the job but it could be better, considering this is PepsiCo. Reaching out to all the merchandisers working in the stores and being in constant contact would help all of the workers as well. Making sure that new hires are ready and prepared before sending them out on their own. They should have 6 weeks of training in all of the stores, and know how each store and back room operates before sending them there on their own.

    Pros

    Great pay, great benefits, good people. Great facility, lots of room for growth and mobility.

    Cons

    Like any brokerage job, the work can be hectic and maddening. "No holidays" , meaning you take your work home with you every night.

    Pros

    Great company to work for, management was decent, great learning experience. Summer hours on Fridays were great.

    Cons

    For a huge company, growth opportunities were low. Too many restructures within the past few years and management changes made it difficult.

    Pros

    I'm extremely pleased with this company. I'm only in my third week but am taking this merchandising position very seriously. I didn't think I would be taken seriously as a female merchandiser, given the physical demands. I truly feel like my supervisor is setting me up for success to accelerate my career. Some of the pros in just three weeks: Independent work schedule/pace Great starting hourly wage Benefits upon hire Boss/coworkers eager to help Online resources Paid mileage from store to store

    Cons

    Honestly, I think the cons are minimal. This job is made easier by organization and communication. If you control what you can, everything should fall into place!!!

    Advice to Management

    I hope to continue to receive help and guidance to grow with this company!
