    I have been working at PepsiCo (Less than a year)

    Pros

    At the beginning of the internship Pepsi does a nice job of making sure your onboarding process is smooth and you are introduced to the company before going out into the market to work with customers. Throughout my internship I was given the opportunity to work with customers and get real-world experience that is not offered in any classroom setting. My managers and every other employee at the plant were very welcoming and always around to answer any questions that I had. I would highly recommend this internship for anyone looking to work for a competitive and innovative company!

    Cons

    There was not any cons to this internship, the overall experience was excellent.

    Advice to Management

    My managers were great and very welcoming. They should keep doing exactly what they are already doing.

    I worked at PepsiCo part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    My ex-dsl (Frito Lay) always appreciated my hard work. Worked about 4 hours for 3 days a week. Also excelled as an on-call employee sent to assist RSR in merchandising (or stocking) a store. Typical tasks: walk into the store, see what product is where and fill what needs to be filled with product, while rotating the dates forward. After any and all product is put up and rotated, face up the product, pop and lace to left salute. The most enjoyable part of the job was that I was able to be helpful to others.

    Cons

    Backstock challenges
    It can be hard to accumulate enough hours to pay the bills under new dsl.
    Running accounts across 3 counties killed one car and was working on the destruction of the second. Lack of communication doesn't exactly establish a vote of confidence as the silence is deafening and can be misconstrued ... Working all hours inhibits the ability to establish a healthy sleep patterns and an 8 hour rest cycle to ensure company safety standards. There are only 5 merchandisers in our area; there will always only be 5 merchandisers in our area.

    Advice to Management

    It isn't the opportunity that makes the person, it is the person that makes the opportunity.

    I have been working at PepsiCo part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Competitive Wage, Management is friendly, Plenty of Training, Company Phone, Uniform, Over-time

    Cons

    Merchandising is hard, sometimes back-breaking work and dealing with store managers can be tough. Depending on how many stores I have in a single day/route, the day could be smooth or hectic. Positions and career opportunities in the company are seemingly slow to open up.

    Advice to Management

    No advice.

    Pros

    pay
    consistent hours
    available to move around

    Cons

    force overtime when busy
    management does not handle work issues well
    seniority gets best shifts so you will most likely be on 2nd or 3rd for 15+ years before getting on first.
    also seniority gets the best work week so you will work tues-sat, sun-thurs, or fri-tues. mon-fri goes to high senior.
