Productive and fun place to work.
Packer/Sanitor (Former Employee), Modesto, CADecember 16, 2014
Pros: free lunches, bonus pay every year, raise increase every year, environment
Cons: hard on the body after awhile, but great exercise because of the physical demand
The hardest part of the job for the Sanitor is the improper twisting and having to move your body in a way that you can accommodate the machine in order to clean.

The most enjoyable part of the job as a Packer was being able to talk to your neighbor on the packaging side because it made time fly by especially if you had a fast line to pack. But you – more... still had to pay attention to the product to make sure no mistakes on printing or damages to the bags. – less

Great start to my career.
Senior Sales Zone Supervisor (Former Employee), FloridaDecember 15, 2014
Pros: building resume, change, achievable challenges
Cons: work/life balance
Frito Lay definitely enabled me to learn and hone my skills to become a diverse leader. With that comes added responsibilities. With so many overlapping roles, the responsibilities tend to compound. If you're a frontline leader, you're on call 24/7.

Bulk Picker (Former Employee), Akron, OHDecember 11, 2014
It wasn't a bad place to work. Child support makes the checks bitter though. Working part time is pretty tough. It's better to get full time.

Route Sales Representative (Former Employee), Industry, CADecember 8, 2014
Pros: great benefits
Cons: long hours
Typical day started between midnight and 3 am and lasted anywhere from 10-14 hours. Co-workers often did not find it as important to work as hard as you. Management was very supportive but always pushed for volume. The hardest part was dealing with a handful of different store managers all expecting something different. The benefits were the most emjoyable – more... part. – less

great pay and benifits, not so great if you want a life outside of work
Warehouse Lead (Former Employee), Topeka, KSDecember 8, 2014
Pros: good pay and benifits
Cons: forced over time, a lot of over time
work is hard but steady, learned a lot about the cooperate world. the people, co-workers are the best part, the company it's self could care less about it's employees. everything is time sensitive at a production facility, as expected. they do exstensive safety training, to the point of over kill. Hardest part of knowing who to listen to. communication – more... is not their strong point. most enjoyable part of the job is at the end of the shift when your team has completed its tasks, and exceeded its goals! – less

Sales Operations (Current Employee), Decatur, GADecember 4, 2014
Pros: good pay
Cons: short breaks, no benefits, weather
I work with a productive team. The only thing I disagree with are the people who are in charge (Warehouse 2) . I can do every job in the warehouse and I know my co-workers strength and weakness like I do my own.I know what it takes to get the job done. I have what it takes to utilize people to there full potential. I just haven't been granted the opportunity – more... to move up in the company like I deserve. We have easy days that become long due to improper placement and unfair work play. This is the only time my job is gets difficult. I analyze the situation and come up with solutions.My co-workers look forward to me working because I'm fair and get the job done so we all get home at an efficient time. – less

Great place to work
Product merchandiser (Current Employee), Hermantown, MNNovember 28, 2014
Pros: flexible hours, good pay, great social interaction
Cons: no insurance, family suffers.
Management is very laid back. very helpful in good and bad times. The hours are very flexible. what ever the time I start in the day I get to the store that I would work at and then I would check the aisles that the products are in. I would reorganize the products in the right places. Customers are in the store. So I would go to the back retrieve the – more... products and bring them to the floor . I would Stock the shelves. make sure the area looks clean and presentable. I have learned in this company is how to work efficient on my own and with little or no supervision. I have worked with management very closely and they work with me. The hardest part of this job is that I don't get to be with my family. The enjoyable part of this job is that I am on my own and I can work with customers and coworkers at a reasonable time frame. – less

Pros: good insurance and working for a great company
Cons: long hours
A typical work day consist of selling in of product and merchandising the product, loading stock in truck for the next day and inventory control.
I did learn that proper rotation of stock would safe less out of date items.
The management was very willing to help and guide you so you can maintain a good relation with store managers.
Co-Workers were very – more... easy to work with and give a little advise if needed.
The hardest part about the job was the hours having to work and not having the family time needed.
The most enjoyable part of the job is when I finished stocking a store shelf to stand back and see a job well done. – less

SENIOR MARKETING SERVICES BUSINESS COORDINATOR (Former Employee), Plano, TXNovember 19, 2014
Pros: excellent opportunity for cross training and learning what other departments contribute
Cons: total task force meeting time took up one complete day of a work week.
I worked with all of the corn based products for Frito-Lay. That included such products as Tostitos, Doritos, Cheetos, etc. I wrote business proposals based on weekly task force meetings, generally led by the Marketing Manager but I filled in as lead when they were not available. My task was to garner information from all the various teams within Frito-Lay – more... and put this data into a business proposal. Once all development, sales, engineering, product supply, etc. data was gathered and entered into a proposal, it was my job to make sure that each department in the proposal to sign off in a timely manner or to understand and assist with any issues. This information in the proposal affected production times at manufacturing plants. – less
