No work life balance
Warehouse Utility (Former Employee), Denver, COJuly 21, 2015
Pros: Pay rate and benefits
Cons: long hours, long work weeks, and working holidays
As far as pay rate and benefits, these are probably the best two things this company has to offer. If you don't mind working an average of six days a week and twelve hour shifts then this is the place for you. Don't look forward to advancements with this company unless you have college degree. They also run off of a point system and once you reach seven, they will terminate you without hesitation regardless of how long you have been employed by them. As far as the people go, your co-workers are just about the only thing you have to look forward too each day.

Positive work experience
Material Handler (Former Employee), Frankfort, INJuly 17, 2015
A typical day at Frito Lay would start with a team meeting. We would discuss the current state of the warehouse. Then we would start loading. I learned that to excel in a factory setting you must work hard and stay focused. The management was always good about doing their job and helping out the loaders. My co-workers were helpful and pleasant. The hardest part of the job was the actual loading and the best part about the job was the satisfaction of doing hard work and doing it well.

Great Pay
Sanitor II (Former Employee), Jonesboro, ARJuly 16, 2015
Pros: great pay
Cons: possible long hours
the pay was excellent however, being a factory, they are very stricken about time management. also, they say they are all about family but when it boils down to it, they dont care about your families. its very hard to get any absences excused and they have a very high turn over rate so be prepared to work alot if your a full time employee. my advice to you is to stay part time because part time employees have the option of wether they want to work over there shift or not but full time employees are forced to work over there shifts and work on there days off if production is short handed. ive seen full timers work 3 weeks straight before with out a day off..

mechanic job
Shift Mechanic (Current Employee), Orlando, FLJuly 16, 2015
Pros: free stale chips
Cons: everything else
they are the most unprofessional shot out management team on the planet I wouldn't let them fix me a drink. Its like working on the set of the walking dead, random homeless people are constantly in the shop, the foreman is a walker, the fleet manager is a walker, your just trying to make to the end of the shift without being bitten or you will turn into a mindless walker too. You will work weekends You will work nights and you will be yelled at for working. While there you will hear gunshots fire trucks and ambulances next door at the homeless camp. Your boss will tell you to let stuff go on a tractor then deny knowing anything about it. Go there only if you want to be turned into a zombie !!!!!

Horrible place to work! DO NOT WORK HERE!
Route Sales Representative (Former Employee), Pittsburgh, PAJuly 14, 2015
Pros: Free chips(big deal)
Cons: Frito Lay Inc
Horrible place to work! Split work weeks. 12-14 hr work days. They didn't pay OT until we won a class action suit against the company. The Company rarely promotes from within. They were hiring 22 yr old kids as Managers with no experience when they could have easily been hiring some of the Route guys that have yrs and yrs of experience. The management team was only worried about the numbers at the end of the week.

It took them 2 votes to get rid of the union. After the first vote, they started firing guys that were for the union then hired new people that were against it. 6 months later the union was voted out. They changed the pay scale and made the bonuses impossible to reach when guys were easily reaching them with the union in place.

If you have a family, don't expect to see them much! The ONLY thing good from that company is you could make some money. But with the union gone(which gave you little protection) they don't make it any more. Huge turnover rate there too!

Lots of back stabbers trying to get in good with the managers!

Great benefits and decent pay with depressing work/life balance.
Route Sales Representative (Former Employee), CaliforniaJuly 11, 2015
Pros: the money is literally decent. its great if you worked minimum wage (obviously)
Cons: No life, never know your days off till day before, dont know what time you will be off, 12-14 hour days
Its technically a great job as far as job security goes. There is room for advancement. They do reimburse you for school. However, if you go into route sales, you will NOT have time to go to school. You will be working 60 hours a week. It sounds great if you are money hungry, but there is a formula in place that when you pass your first 40 hours (your salary is at 40 hours per week), then you get a small amount per every hour after. Lets just say that the variable rate of pay for each additional hour of overtime is created by a formula and may equal to as little as 10 bucks an hour. Essentially, you will be working much more than 40 hours and that will average out your "hourly pay" to 15 bucks an hour. if you dont work overtime, you only work 40 hours but its like if you make 20 dollars an hour. You wont have a life in general. You will definitely not have a life when you start off as relief for the first few years. You dont know your schedule till the end of the week. they often dont tell you your schedule till the day before they have to. this means that the work week starts on sunday, and they may tell you on saturday that you work sunday and have days off during the week. that is an example. also, you work 12+ hours a day. if there is a problem on your day, which can happen every day, then you can work 13,14 or even 15 hours a day. You dont have a certainty if you will even be off in 12 hours. you dont have time to advance because there is no time to go to school. its sad. thank you.
