I worked at PepsiCo full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Frito-Lay has a excellent pay scale,friendly atmosphere,excellent training,excellent benefits,401 K,the opportunity to work with todays technology,the opportunity to train to be a first responder and my fellow workers are some of the best trained in there field.

Cons

The plant is located in a urban enviorment and I had to drive quite aways to get to work.The company runs 24 hours a day seven days a week and they have alot of different schedules.

Advice to Management

Management should come out on the floor and talk to the employees one on one.I advise this philosophy with any company management.

    Pros

    You can make a descent living and the benefits are very good.

    Cons

    The management sucks. The hours are tough if you are not used to getting up early. Management allows store managers to treat you like a piece of gum on the bottom of their shoe. No support and very poor communication. Management is constantly on you about numbers no matter how unrealistic they are.

    Advice to Management

    Communication and more support would go along ways.

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

    Pros

    The only pro is that I can put that I worked for a fortune 50 company on my résumé

    Cons

    We'll first off I started right out of college and was hired into the DSLD role and was told things that turned out not to be true at all. First off I was told I was going to run a route for 3 months to learn the business, that's fine I embraced the experience until after 4 months of running routes they told me that I will most likely be running a route for 12-13 months. Then when I asked for a timetable for my training it could not be told to me. They were basically short on route sales people so used me and continued on planning to use me because they thought they could. I was working 65-70 hour weeks at a minimum, it was the worst experience I've ever had at a job yet. The turnover is massive because the employees are treated extremely poorly.
