    I have been working at PepsiCo full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Consecutive 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.

    Cons

    Dealing 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 ManagementAdvice

    Hire 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.

    I worked at PepsiCo full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Being a merchandiser gives you alot of freedom during your work day. Its nice to be able to work independently.

    Cons

    When you first start you will have to work weekends. There is no way around this, everyone has to do it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase the pay

    I have been working at PepsiCo

    Pros

    The money is good. You get weekends off.

    Cons

    The 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 ManagementAdvice

    Have better communication with employees.
