fast paced job
Warehouse Associate (Current Employee) –  Visalia, CAJuly 11, 2017
you have to be fast you can't slow down you have to be in a mind set that is you can't leave until the job is done. Its part time so yours may be cut short, its hot in the warehouse there no AC or Heaters. Its small so your only work with a few people and it becomes like a
family.
Pros
great pay
Cons
part time hours

Great Company to work for. They make you feel welcome from day one and assist in any need that you may have. Most positions are very flexible with working hours and great work/life balance.

This Job Sucks
Family warehouse worker (Former Employee) –  Wyandanch, NYJuly 9, 2017
Management is horrible and the workload is straining on the body. Many people had to get surgeries from the job. Compensation and benefits are poor. Time off is lousy.

Hard workers are rewarded with more work and little is done about job security.
Warehouse Associate (Current Employee) –  Dallas, TXJuly 9, 2017
The facility lacks managerial presence and direction. Work to life ratio is disturbingly imbalanced. The workplace feels more like a high school hallway with all the internal gossip and drama. The Hardest part about the job is the work load being placed on you when management sees that you're a hard worker.
Pros
Decent starting salary
Cons
Lacking benefits and imbalanced work to life ratio

Terrible company
Route Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Dryden, NYJuly 9, 2017
Stay away. Everything about this job is horrible. Young managers who have no clue and won't help. Changing schedule. No paid holidays off. Weekends, lots of mismanagement. Zone leader is clueless, weak and scared. Performance pay is set up so you do not make good money. It's a form of wage theft. Even management has no clue how you get paid. Find something else to do. Just ask a sales rep and they will tell you how terrible the job has become.
Pros
Not working there

Busy environment
Warehouse/Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Chico, CAJuly 8, 2017
10-14 hour days, 50-60+ hours a week. Hours of shift can range from anywhere from 3 am to 6 am in mornings to late in day. Must be a hard worker and able to stand for very long periods of time, often bending, reaching, pushing, pulling an lifting product. It is a fast pace environment,must be comfortable dealing with customers and different management. It is nice being on move constantly.
Pros
Great pay
Cons
Very long hours

Hard to advance
District Sales Designate (Current Employee) –  Memphis, TNJuly 7, 2017
Frito Lay is a great company to work for , but depending on what area you work in. There are minimum chances for advancement or taking on new roles because some places have a buddy system. This isn't good for business nor the company. They miss out on a lot of opportunity because of this system. I choose to move on. Beside that great company with great benefits.

Route Salesman (Former Employee) –  Beltsville, MDJuly 5, 2017
Good money a week but no family life. it depends kind of which warehouse you work out of. Some make more commission than others and the force outs are terrible. Managers forget where they came from when they move up.
Pros
weekly pay

Great For Singles, Not For Family
RSA/RSR (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GAJuly 3, 2017
Work days are long 10-14 hour days. RSA's get it the worst. Once I got a route it was still rough but not as bad as a RSA. No real job security, customers first no matter what. No room for advancement. No support from management what so ever. Only thing you should believe is the pay. Don't trust management, you can do what they said and if it goes south, they will throw you under the bus. the abuse on your body is tough and the abuse on your car. Also if you run over time they will TRY and make you go back and finish the stops in your personal car. This Performance Pay is a rip off more work for less pay. Lost between 3 and 4 hundred dollars a week due to this new pay set up. My opinion stay away... If your in desperate need work it temp then GET OUT!
Pros
Free Chips if you damage them out
Cons
Management, Management, Management the hours NOW the pay... OH AND MANAGEMENT

not a bad place to work
Route Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Webster, TXJuly 3, 2017
Frito lay is a good company to work for it has its ups and downs, very long day and the number of hours someone work is based on the route they get. one route I worked 60 hours a week and the next route was from 50 to 55 hours a week. that's not bad however you don't get paid overtime like normal jobs.
Pros
some of your cumsters are great to work for free food, drinks, ext. and from a low paing job to this one the pay is fair, and every week pay.
Cons
long days, basicly no over time you would have to see what i mean to understand this.
