    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Cheap insurance, lots of vacation hours, Cafe, but LOW hourly pay

    Cons

    Too many managers that know nothing, No support, too much pushback from other depts, Make you Earn a bonus but take it away, so no reason to try. Give you 4 hours for you can use but ONLY if you have kids(UNFAIR), STRICK attendance schedule, on-site dr you cant use, quality people give you bad scores but have not idea how to do the job or because you missed one word every call is different we are not robots No one knows anything about policies or anything! Training is HORRIBLE, too short.

    Advice to Management

    Learn your job, stop being robots, stop disappearing, this the only place I feel on my own, I have not idea what I am doing or who to ask. no one wants to help you, BUT you get pushback from other depts and management if you do something wrong, Why should I try to increase my scorecard it I get sick and you take it away?? the is no incentive! it is punishment! I use to be #1 but I really don't care anymore!

    Pros

    Some but they are also offered by other companies, so not all that great.

    Cons

    Terrible pay, okay benefits, Senior Leadership is not the best. Job titled so can they can pay you less.

    Advice to Management

    Direct management is pretty good, but upper management needs to care about your employees more. "Hiring freeze" for 2 years? Come on.

    Pros

    Good benefits but expensive if you have a family. Solid company, great management team.

    Cons

    Advancement not really an option. Pepsi corporate runs a tight ship, low head count.

    Be proactive not reactive.

    I worked at PepsiCo full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Decent pay, overtime, advancement opportunities.

    Cons

    Not enough merchandisers. Most times when you have a heavy day, you are on your own and expected to finish no matter what, they don't send you help because they barely have enough merchandisers to cover routes when people call in. They make you pick up stores on top of your 5, 6, 7 stores a day. No bonuses. No weekends off. Always switching Merchandisers routes due to lack of personnel. Sometimes they put you on routes far from your home and tell you it's just for a day. Sometimes as a merchandiser you won't know what route you will be running the next day because your manager won't send schedule until 9 at night and they tell you it's because they were "people planning". Lack of communication. No motivation to do better whatsoever.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people, atleast part timers to pick up routes and help out on heavy days. Give incentives to promote positive motivation among your employees. Be more organized. Prepare schedules ahead of time and don't send it out last minute.

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

    Pros

    Pretty good pay 900-1150 gross per week, home every night. Monday-Friday. Early start time.(4:30-6:00am)Good benefits. Incentives. Automatic fleet(except bulk trucks).

    Cons

    Dispatch is outsourced which means it's a disaster. You don't know what your route will be until the morning you come in to work. You may work in 3 different counties some days, then some days you may be dispatched good(flip a coin)The physical labor each and every day is tough. Unless you run extremely fast and burn yourself out, you will work long hours. They will cut routes when cases get too low and add to other drivers. You will unload and work 400-700 cases off a side loader at my location. Some locations have lift gate trucks. Management is inept/under qualified.(will vary by location.) some trucks have a/c, some trucks don't. Some drivers will be waiting for their truck to be loaded before they can start their day in the summer time.

    Advice to Management

    Localize dispatch, hire by credentials not quota, management in this line of work is not a desk job. Show your employees you will lead them in battle, not stand behind them.
