I worked at PepsiCo part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

-Decent wages.
-Union.
-Good Overtime.
-Good job security once you get into the union.

Cons

-Very little supervision. I worked at Frito for half a year, till I was attacked, unprovoked, by a particularly horrible coworker. He ran away from me, and I went straight into my boss' office to report what happened. After a rather pathetic "investigation", they fired both of us. Despite me being the victim, and not fighting back, I was fired for being attacked at work.

This lack of supervision also extends to their forklift drivers, who will speed around the warehouse, neglect using their horn, and act oblivious to their surroundings. Case in point, this is not a safe place to work.

Advice to Management

Do your jobs! Try to actually listen to what your employees are telling you, and put forth effort into your investigations. I know effort is hard, and there are only so many hours in a day, but you are playing games with people's live here.

    I have been working at PepsiCo full-time

    Pros

    good pay and benefits work freedom

    Cons

    change is a constant associates need proper training to deal with this example going from bulk 24 to pre pick after working bulk for 8 years with only 2 days training is not good. its like setting that person up for failure.

    Advice to Management

    put your associates first it could make the difference between a great route sales associate and failure
