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

    Pros

    Good pay with zero experience. You can’t find many non-factory, part time jobs that will pay $13+ in Indiana. They work with me on my school schedule, and seem more than willing to let me plan a vacation as long as it isn’t around a busy pop-selling holiday. You get a work iphone. You are alone on your route, so no bosses will mess with you unless it’s a text to check up. This makes it less stressful for the way I work. You are granted the ability to work “your” way rather than by a strict standard that places like Walmart may make their employees follow.

    Cons

    First thing you notice, they send you with the experienced people doing the full time version of your job. Almost immediately all of them will see something wrong and blame the “part timers” who work the night shift ONLY, so they will have it in their heads that they are only doing perfect work. It seems crazy, and I know everyone always blames the other shifts, but the issue I have is deeper than this. I have called/sent a picture of a store that I worked on that looked empty and unserviced in the morning, the manager will reply and say he’ll handle it. The next day I get texts from two upper bosses saying to not blame the full timers because they don’t make mistakes and that they “check” on them. I literally just stopped complaining to bosses after that because I know they will not listen to you.

    Also, the turnover rate is crazy for the part timers. You also drive YOUR car, so you could potentially drive yours to death like I did to mine. (Good news= you get mileage pay and it was enough for me to use on a new car down payment).

    Advice to Management

    Open your ears to the lowest people on the totem poll. We see more people in the stores than any of the full time people do. We aren’t all as stupid as you think.

    Pros

    Great work life/life balance, at least for my roles. Nice benefits such as summer/holiday fridays, 11 holiday days, 21 vacation days and not taking work home (usually).

    Cons

    Pay is less than similar jobs for my area, company is cutting costs given the tight business environment for "fun for you" drinks and snacks.

    Advice to Management

    Re-energize employees with more than just superficial appreciation gestures.
