    Great hours, great Benefits, Consistent work schedule yet strenuous hard physical work

    Merchandiser (Current Employee) Riverside, CA

    ProsConsecutive days off. Ability to work 40-50 hrs weekly
    Holiday pay. Great medical and 401k options. Managers generally work with you with time off and personal days.

    ConsDealing with the grocery retail is very difficult. Your allotment of work per day requires you 4-7 stops a day. Every account wants first early service and many difficulties arise as far as cusomer service requests as well as immediate follow ups to resolve the issues. Some mornings you are required to start your day early morning and can work up to 10-12hrs. Very physical work.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire more personnel and merchandisers to ensure better quality of service to each individual account so as to not stretch the amount of work employees already have.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Lacking leadership and communication

    Sales Representative (Current Employee) Riverside, CA

    ProsThe money is good. You get weekends off.

    ConsThe stress is very high. You either have stores mad because too much overstock or your bosses mad because not enough. Pepsi only cares about money not about the relationships with the stores.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHave better communication with employees.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
