    I have been working at PepsiCo full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits- insurance from Day 1, 401k matches 50¢ to the dollar. Pay seems to be slightly better than similar jobs with other beverage companies. Current D-Bay managers have their stuff together and will fight for the drivers when needed. Work on your own all day, set your own pace (either 'fast' or 'really fast') so get to stay away from office politics. As long as the management is doing a good job, it's easy to get off early if you start early and take a personal day when you need it.

    Cons

    Typical corporate workplace where simple tasks often take twice as long as they should. Customer service also has its challenges which some of the management doesn't understand. Fleet and equipment isn't the best. High turnover but that is mostly because new employees don't expect to work hard and don't stay long enough to figure it out. Not many opportunities to move up within the company because the comfy Bulk driving jobs are filled with people who never leave. Pay is about 60-40 salary to commission and the commision is mostly beyond the driver's control so pay can change 10%-20% depending on the season and volume.

    Advice to Management

    Promote your own employees more often rather than hiring managers who have never even worked in the industry, let alone the position they are supervising.

    I have been working at PepsiCo full-time

    Pros

    Good Benefits, Well respected Brand

    Cons

    Erratic Schedule. sometimes unpredictable. Management treats sales team with favoritism. Pay between sales team and merchandising team is very significant. Merchandisers do more physical labor for way less pay.

    Advice to Management

    The Springdale AR Branch is very divided. The Sales Team think they are better than merchandisers and are constantly complaining. Management at this branch ignore their employees and just care about driving sales and saving money. Very hard to get promoted. A "good ole boy" environment. Favoritism is rampant.

    I worked at PepsiCo as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Work is good and pays well. Invoicing is not a problem.

    Cons

    Plans continue to change during projects. OK but it always last minute, so it cost the job.

    Advice to Management

    Plan better with your contractors and the costs will be reduced.

    Pros

    Good benefits package, able to control your own day and work from home if needed, you are able to advance rather quickly if you are will to relocate to any location in the country.

    Cons

    Only company I have ever worked for where the managers make less than the employees. Human Resource department is all but useless. They act as if they are afraid to make any decision.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees what they are worth. Paying based upon location size does not make sense when you lower the pay at the smaller locations and then expect management to do the jobs of three different positions.
