Fast paced productive environment with staffing issues.
Pros: Uniforms given, fuel reimbursement.
Cons: Soft management, split work weeks.
Every day at work I was required to travel to different stores that i was assigned for that day. Once I arrived at the store, I was required to go into the back and take out the back stock to the main floor. I then filled the aisle with what product I had, as my position wasn't allowed to order/bring in product. After I used all of the product I had to return the leftover items into the back of the store, followed my a walk around of the store to verify that all of the shelves owned by Frito are in good standing.
The overall experience was a great one, especially in teaching me how to handle situations on my own. I had to generally make decisions very quickly when conversing with different store managers. I also learned what a huge value the term productivity and efficiency have, when trying to meet deadlines.
Management within Frito Lay were a great group of people for the most part. I felt like they would help solve any problems that I encountered, or they would give advice on how to go about doing things. The only issue that I felt needs to be changed, is that the management there is too soft. They do not correctly punish those people that do not do there job correctly.
My co-workers were great. Most of them shared similar view points, and they were always there when I had questions regarding to a new place that I had to go to. We rarely had similar schedules, but when we were close we went out to lunch at the end of our shift just to wind down from our day.
The hardest part about the job was that I couldn't bring in product to the stores, or order for them. – more... So I could only stock what was in the back of the store. Some days went well where I had everything that I needed, but most I didn't have all the product required. I talked to several "leads" about this situation and they had said there would be no correct way to predict how much product you would need in the store for that day.
The best part about the job was that I met a lot of people that I will continue to be involved with even though I no longer work at Frito Lay. – less
