Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) –  King of Prussia, PAAugust 18, 2016
Really unorganized and the warehouse workers aren't treated fair and are blamed for everything. Management doesn't know anything and lack knowledge in key social situations.

Pays really well.

Long hours and frequent call outs.

Days are long but they go fast
I learned quite a bit about customer service and driving in traffic
Management was great, fair
Co-workers were for the most part up beat and ready to work
The hours are the hardest part of this job

Good place to hear about all the new chips. Every time I would hear of a new product coming out I would want to try it and give the customers my personal review. It helped with my sales as well.

ROUTE SALES ASSOCIATE (Current Employee) –  Decatur, GAAugust 17, 2016
It's a job...there is no culture behind the company. Basely get up different times of the morning ranging from 12am to 6am to start your day. Which could lead to bulk truck with air condition and have few stops and drop to prepack 10 to 12 stops smaller box truck no air in truck where you delivery and merchandise. Then, you have small account which is similar to prepack but you go into the store in see what they need and package all the box inside the truck, then head back into the store to merchandise it. Everything has to be done under 14hours and route can spread out or together. At the same time your upselling for space and displays in either market.
Pros
Self manage
Cons
No air conditioner in trucks, no time for lunch

Route Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Wayne, NJAugust 14, 2016
The job was great, just didn't get the support you expected from a big name company. It's the little things that matter to make a good employee into a happy employee.
Pros
The income and free food during meetings.
Cons
No air conditioning and heat during the summer /winter, and no help on busy days.

"Pay Performance " is horrible.
RSR Driver (Current Employee) –  Louisville, KYAugust 13, 2016
Everything was going fine when we was making commission. Good pay for your work, now they took that from us in Louisville Ky and slowly converting to other regions. Now on "pay performance " so if you don't make plan they will take a percentage away from you on week 2 of the following period. We had so many people quit and can't keep help now. I along with several other co workers are looking for other companies to deliver for. They jack your plan up where it makes hard to achieve so they can get the zone caught up to plan. It's horrible, a coworker and l lost $14,000 to $16,000 a year. They say just work harder, we only work 55 + hours a week. One Dsl told me "You made to much money" Frito can't find help to fill vacations weeks now. They need to go back and pay their people fair!!
Pros
Good insurance
Cons
Poor "pay performance " has killed the morale in Louisville zone

not a great place
Merchandiser (Current Employee) –  San Jose, CAAugust 12, 2016
typical day at work is just getting up and working the loads that arrive.what I learned is how to merchandise product management is terrible. there are hard working co-workers and lazy ones. hardest part of the job is having no communication at all. most enjoyable part is I can get up early and get off early

No opportunity for advancement
Customer Service Specialist (Current Employee) –  West Valley City, UTAugust 4, 2016
Under the new business structure there is no opportunity for advancement without a Bachelors degree. All Customer Service Specialists are paid the same regardless of performance. Pay is not merit based. 3:00 am start times don't allow for a very good work/life balance.
Pros
Expand professional network by building relationships with store management and other vendors.
Cons
Long works hours, poor compensation, no raises, little to no work/life balance, no performance incentives, no reward for performance, little to no autonomy.
