    Cons

    This is not a 40 hour a week job for some people, I work about 45-50 hours a week. I manage about 20 RSR,RSA. I really enjoy the job. it's important to remember that it's all about sales. Some days are long I have to manage multiple task at once. Constant complaining from RSR, Customer Calls, and reporting to my Manager. My RSR's are not the best employees, constant complaining, and always having to make sure they are doing their job. You are expected to wear 26 hats at once, everything has a deadline that needs to get complete. You will also have to work with KAM's ( Account Managers). This entire job is about balancing time, and growing sales. As mentioned before I work about 45 Hours a week, also you can earn quarterly bonuses if you hit your number.

    You will have long days sometimes 10 hours or more just because so many tasks need to be complete on that day. Also if a route goes down and your DC doesn't have any extra RSA, you need to run the route. Just because you're running a down route does not mean your task will go away you still are expected to complete your task. Also another issue is that most DC’s are short on staff so it's difficult to cover route, or complete other task assigned. I work at a Union DC, about 90% of the employees are poor performers who have been this way for year, and was never held accountable.

    Advice to Management

    Take away task from DSL that don't improves Sales.

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

    Pros

    I'm a proud union member. I'm finally full time luckily, part time was rough. You usually have to earn your way at union jobs and it's the truth. I worked 3 jobs for 3 years to survive. The possibilities after your made are endless so it's worth it! You will work hard but safe. Merchandising is the step before driving, that's where all the overtime is earned. It's a hard job but again you'll earn a honest, respected living. If you have a young strong physique, the possibilities are endless.

    Cons

    Sour grapes make a whiner. Shut it up buttercup. If you want an easy job go pump gas. You'll have long days and will do hard work. It's a job that will test you. You need to bring it everyday or go home.

    Advice to Management

    Strong and fair. They are definitely on their own mission of success. Like a cop, it's their job to assure the good of the company is maintained. It's not a stretch to mention that if you screw up you'll be written up. It's a fair process and sometimes there is a bit of favoritism. Remember the ticket quota that doesn't exist, they look good for screwing you. Just don't screw up...Lol. They're just doing their job. They're not union if you are. It creates a fair workplace. You'll have fair representation and chances.
