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

    Pros

    Full benefits like Medical and Dental insurance, life insurance, and a 401k

    Cons

    PepsiCo does not care about it's employees. Sure it does little things like let you earn points to redeem in a catalog of goods, but its employees are just numbers in a machine.

    Advice to Management

    Your people are your key to success. You have to take better care of them.

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

    Pros

    Met a lot of great co workers

    Cons

    Long hours, work/life balance is horrible even though they say they put family first, performance pay is why people are quitting left and right, management never has your back, moral is really low, they hire too many kids out of college who think they know it all!

    Advice to Management

    Stop acting like you care and are our friends! Respect the workers who make your paychecks too!

    Pros

    Ambitious agenda, mostly good people and challenges, wide range of opptys to learn and grow your skills in various aspects of the business

    Cons

    Prioritization and focus is not our strong suit. Process-abhorrent place so expertise resides in people and culture is highly relational. This either does or doesn't work for you.

    Pros

    Pay is good, they also pay for mileage. Usually no management watching you so you have freedom. No customers bothering you

    Cons

    Pretty lonely sometimes and work loads can be big. Lots of squatting standing and walking. Sometimes you have to go in really early, like 3am

    Advice to Management

    Make it more of a team environment

    Pros

    Decent pay, decent benefits, will keep you in shape.

    Cons

    Worst work/life balance in a job I have ever had the displeasure of working for. I can literally count the number of weeks that I had no overtime on one hand out of 3 years of employment. Management was heartless and unsympathetic to the needs of their employees. Mandatory overtime and a ton of it made the job unbelievably stressful and morale was always very very low. The only thing that mattered to management were the numbers and profits.

    Advice to Management

    Care a little for your employees, specifically the front liners like Merchandisers. Think of them as human instead of numbers. They are the pillars that keep the company rolling.

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

    Pros

    Base pay is ok, lots of extra benefits. Coworkers are good people. Free chips. New trucks on most of the routes.

    Cons

    Overtime pay is disgustingly low. Tons of hours. Support doesn't exist. Expect as a new guy to do the work that others don't want to do.

    Advice to Management

    Put things back the way they were. This job was great, now people won't stay. It's gotten too tough for most, almost all people! Silly forced items just go stale, and then point fingers at driver for stale control that can't happen. Training means nothing. It's not how things really work on the route.

    Pros

    Decent pay, very good benefits, a job if you need to provide for your family, awesome store receivers that help you out (most of the time)

    Cons

    Man every single about Frito lay sucks, RSR get screwed very bad when it comes to sales. Only get back around 1.5% of commission if you don't hit your number they'll take it away from your check, very very long hours 65-70 a week, no family time, DSL's stress you out like crazy, always on call, they throw in extra product into your orders to hit numbers and causes extra back stock. Send no help when you are running late, insane numbers for plan! Greedy company.

    Advice to Management

    Stop stressing out your RSR's!
