Hard schedule
Route Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Daytona Beach, FLAugust 17, 2017
It's a hard life. You start before 3 am, and don't get home until after 3. And you have to be in bed early to get up at 12:30. I had an excellent manager towards the end but even he couldn't change that. The pay used to be excellent, but they changed the pay scale. Just not worth the hours anymore.

Job steadiness but no growth
Route Sales Representative (Current Employee) –  Richmond, VAAugust 15, 2017
People with only a HS diploma or GED, this is good place to work at and make respectable money. However, if you have a Bachelors degree or greater, please d not apply. It is a dead end job with no growth. FACT: In the amount of time that I have been employed here at Frito Lay, no one from the RSR position has advanced to the next level!
Cons
No career advancement opportunities regardless of how much education you have, It's only presented once a year, Also there's a very unfair compensation structure in place.

Worked here in the summer as a sales intern. Job was fun but I had a bad territory manager. I enjoyed the work and could have seen myself working there full time in the future, but would not have like the manager I would of had.

Terrible management
Route Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Peoria, ILAugust 14, 2017
The typical working environment at Frito-Lay is one of unreasonable expectations and availability. Your weekly pay is based on the assumption that you must work 50 hours per week even though there is no overtime compensation. The management is rarely in the office before 9am and is always gone before 4pm. They do not answer or return phone calls in a timely manner and you have to ask multiple times for items to help you complete your work. The typical shift begins from 3-4am and lasts for 10-12 hours. If you are able to complete your shift early, there is routinely meetings that are scheduled for the convenience of the management and will make your day longer. Your pay is based on your sales goals, so this meeting time is essentially free labor for the company.
Pros
None
Cons
Terrible hours. No breaks. Poor pay. Incompetent management.

Processing Operator (Current Employee) –  Fayetteville, TNAugust 12, 2017
Poor management continues to drive this plant in a negative direction. There is little to no concern for the front line employees and their quality of work/life balance.

ROUTE SALES REPRESENTATIVE/TRAINER (Former Employee) –  Kennesaw, GAAugust 11, 2017
Early mornings, load your truck, deliver to managers with unpredictable attitudes. I learned to never get too comfortable on any job. Management, some are good, some are bad. Work place looks good on the outside. The hardest thing about the job is working in the heat and extremely cold weather. Also dealing with different store managers can drain your spiritual energy some days. It use to be good checks until they changed the pay structure.
Cons
early start days and many working hours

Several changes are happening at the same time and causing a lot of employee turnover as well as management turn over. Pay structure is a major moral problem.
Pros

Overworked and unable to take advantage of the benefits.
