    Pros

    You get to go home after a very long day

    Cons

    Long hrs no home life. Managers are very deceptive. They will cut your route every 2 years which means cut in yiur pay. Will not tell what you don't to miss plan but not all your accomplishments.

    Advice to Management

    Stop shuffling paper and get out in the field to help once in,a while.

    I worked at PepsiCo full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good Pay, Health Insurance, and Sales incentives. The company promotes from within to top performers.

    Cons

    Promotions are not always done properly, certain backgrounds will get you further than actual qualifications.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate your talent to keep them happy and promote those who are qualified and that just don't fit into a certain background

    Working 60 to 65 hours every week is for slaves! if you miss 1 stop out of the whole week they wanna write you up, they wanna talk about safety all the time when you're driving around in death traps, their trucks are super old. The managers smile in your face and stave you in the back!

    The turnover rate is crazy, only the guys that have been there for 10,15,20 years don't go anywhere cause they got too much time invested in the company and when they started it wasn't like this.

    All of the guys that got hire with me are gone after only a year.
    Having a normal life and working for this company as an RSR is nearly impossible, and there's no pay for overtime! Yes you heard it right! no pay for overtime is all base on sales, expect to work every holiday except for thanksgiving and Christmas.

    This company doesn't care one bit about their employees all they care is about numbers to the point where you have DSL's blowing up displays, doubling or tripling deliveries to a store when they have a Senior manager doing a tour of a store only to have employees take it all back once they leave, Am talking about a store that usually takes $500 a week they would bring in $2000 in one day! not even give you help and then expect you to do the rest of the day and finish at the same time when you have three time as much work.

    I lost 25 pounds in the first three moths working for this company because you have to hit the rode at 130m/hour if you slow down for one minute don't expect to be done on time, and every where you walk into people give you an attitude because they have such a bad customer service, they literately say very sarcastically : Oh! Frito is here!

    No communication between managers! I had three managers call me one day withing 5 minutes of one another to change my schedule without knowing the other had call.
    Bottom line the company needs some major overhauling when it comes to the way they treat their employees that are out there putting up the work!

    Advice to Management

    Better communication between managers and DSL's, it feel like they're always looking for a way to screwed you, and to the Senior VP in TX: if you really wanna see how things are run send someone undercover don't announce when your coming cause they make it look good for you, Just show up or send someone undercover and see what happens, it makes no sense to let them know when you're showing up!
