    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.

    I have been working at PepsiCo full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    If you're doing your job, you aren't really bothered by management. I have made more money each year over the previous year.

    Cons

    A lot of long hours, and tough to balance your outside of work life. Dealing with a lot of different stores and their managers can be a pain. Frito-Lay management doesn't always have your back if there is a problem.

    Advice to Management

    Have the backs of your employees. If a store is being unreasonable, stick up for your employees and stand up against abusive stores.

    I have been working at PepsiCo full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    It's a paycheck , but a shrinking one at that .

    Cons

    CEO receives a 13% pay increase for 2016 , meanwhile frontline employees converted to "Performance Pay" received on average a 20% pay cut.

    Advice to Management

    Ditch performance pay system. The frontline team has made this company what it is today. All this pay system is doing is causing mass turnover , and you can't replace the experience you are losing . Frito lays successful days are numbered. Investors Beware

    I worked at PepsiCo full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Own hours, own boss sort of, laid back, answer to yourself most of time if you mess up

    Cons

    Hard work! Dont let somebody tell you its just chips!! To get off early you must start early. Like Midnight!! Then you can be of all day. Lol!

    Advice to Management

    Treat your RSRs like humans. Provide A/C or whatever they need. Give adequate breaks, etc.
