Pros

I've only been working for Frito for about 6 months. and YES the job is difficult but I knew that going into it. I've worked in the retail/grocery business since I was 15 working on holidays and weekends is already something I accustomed too. The job is difficult, but I make more $ then the majority of my friends who have college educations. Is it something I want to my entire life? Prob not, but my thinking is I'm at a young enough age where I can make plenty of good $, and eventually use this expierence to reach addition avenue sometime down the road.

Cons

The hours, which I can't really knock to hard for someone who has no family. Sure, getting up at 4 am is rough, but I try to take advantage of the days I have off (Sunday and Wednesday), and try to enjoy myself on those nights.

    Pros

    Pays well
    Great work-life balance
    Fridays off
    Easy workload

    Cons

    Promotions are based on politics. There is no incentive to work hard, many people work maybe 4 - 6 hours per week total, yet are treated better by management. Management seems incapable or unwilling to manage.

    Advice to Management

    Get management to manage.
    Do something about the corruption and politics.
    Distinguish between people who work and people who don't.
    Promote based on abilities.
    Review based on achievements.
    Use something other than politics to determine opportunity and promotions.

    Pros

    Great brands and company reputation are sure to make your resume sparkle. People are the bright, ambitious, and fun to work with for the most part.

    Cons

    Due to management shake-ups and slashed budgets, morale has suffered over the years. When a bunch of type A personalities sense their jobs are on the line...it's every man/woman for him/herself. Not a pretty picture.

    Advice to Management

    Stabiliize!!!! Scared employees are powerless to innovate.
