Doesn't Recommend
Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I have been working at PepsiCo full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Ok pay Ok benefits Good coworkers Great brands. New products add variety and keep the job fresh.

Cons

Managers who don't know the business. Culture of backstabbing within management. No home life for RSRs. Managers cross the line with so-called Worldwide Code of Conduct. No one is sales treated with respect at all. Managers only see numbers and put pressure on to make numbers even to new hires. Not good if you have a family or commitment outside of company,

Advice to Management

They need new management who have people skills who actually treat employees with respect.

    I worked at PepsiCo full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    As an Operations Resource, you will gain invaluable experience leading teams, developing individuals, dealing with conflict management, making critical decisions on daily operations, driving long-term improvement strategies, and more. In my less than 4 years at Frito I moved around to multiple plants, worked 3 different shifts, and managed teams in 3 different business units (operations, receiving/warehouse, and quality).

    Cons

    Overall, there was little to no respect for work-life balance at all. Lots of weekend work, lots of off-shift work, lots of holiday work, lots of working until very-last-minute on Christmas Eve, etc. This drove immense turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Hire a few more operations resources to spread the work and allow for more flexible work schedules.

    Pros

    Any where but Knoxville and you would probably love it, I know I did. Worked in a Michigan facility for 8 years and it was the best job I ever had. When your first hired at Knoxville plant they treat you pretty good. Pay is okay.

    Cons

    Management are two faced, with very few exceptions. They blindside everyone, if you work there and stir up any kind of noise at all, about working conditions, pay shortages, or just unable to handle the 70 hr weeks which are illegal by the way, you will be fired. As a driver here, you have no stability or job security. The average driver there quits in a bout a year if they don't get fired first from the poor training they received.

    Advice to Management

    Get a backbone and treat your employees like people instead of a number. Honesty is non-existent at this facility. Investigate a little before you blindside someone, it could be a mistake on the DMV's part. Give the benefit of doubt once in a while, especially to your veterans. They have given you a lot more than you have given them.
