Warehouse II/ Floor Lead (Former Employee) – Harlingen, TX – August 21, 2017
frito lay was a very fun place to work with a lot of room for advancement within the company. I did just about everything from unloading 18-wheelers full of chip cases to manually keying in the drivers orders into there handheld computers
Over the past two years, I can say I enjoyed my job. Due to upper management losing focus of customers are most important, Ive decided to leave. The implantation of planograms, and forced rules, we have turned off customers, and I'm opinion lost the direction of our founder.. I can no longer stay with a company who would let an employee go for accepting cash from a customer who needed our merchandise to sell.. Ive had repeated issues with the forced planograms that don't work, and the repeated over worked route that I ended up working 50-60 hours a week. Therefore making my payroll slip further and further down, since we are on VROT payroll and more hours we work the less we are worth to the company.
Payroll mistakes, forced planograms, constant trouble with mgmt

Lack of communication is very apparent at Frito Lay. District Managers are constantly rotating. They don't place you where you live and the driving to multiple stores with little working hours made it stressful and not worth it.

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.

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!
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.
Not a good place to work. The only benefit is the pay.
Sanitatin/Packer (Former Employee) – Frankfort, IN – August 15, 2017
Pack bags of chips into boxes apply labels to box and throw on the conveyor. Also clean the machines and break down and clean fryers and allans when a fryer would be down. Also load boxes into case Erectors on the balcony level.
Short breaks, poor management, and 12+hour days mandatory
It's a fun productive workplace with a lot of opportunity to grow
