    I worked at PepsiCo full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    It is a solid company that isn't going anywhere. The paycheck is decent but the hours are ridiculous. The benefits are competitive for the DSD industry. they are the reason I had stuck around for as long as I did. you get to meet a lot of great people and aren't stuck in the same building for the whole day.

    Cons

    The average day is between 12 to 14 hours long and the overtime varies depending on how much you are selling. it takes a major toll on your body as you are constantly up and down on your knees and in and out of the trucks. due to the amount of hours you are working, you can pretty much kiss your social life goodbye... unless you are a glutton for punishment. the two days off are barely enough time for your body to recover before having to start another week. And to top it off, if you are good enough to build your route up, there will be a route reengineering that will change all the routes so that they all make around the same amount of money. then you will have to re-bid on a new route based on seniority not ability.

    Advice to Management

    Look into trying to reward RSRs for their achievements rather than reengineering the routes so that everyone is equal. this is the only job that I have ever heard of that demotes people for doing well.
