    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 have been working at PepsiCo (More than 3 years)

    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.
