I enjoyed being out on my own and having a close relationship with my customers.
Route Salesperson (Former Employee), Madison, WIJanuary 14, 2015
Pros: being out on your own, developing close relationships with customers.
Cons: selling and moving salsa. dealing with driving in bad winter weather.
First I would pull my product from the warehouse and load my truck. Then I would head out on my route to deliver and sell in product, promotional displays and new racks. At times I would have new planograms in stores to complete. I would gain additional space at times. Would open new accounts. Had to process orders for warehouse on products I would need weekly considering promotional displays, new products, racks, etc. My goals were to increase sales and control stales. The hardest part would be selling in pallets of salsa, it would require loading and unloading several times and cases of salsa are heavy.

A different type of fast paced work place
Sales / Office Administrator (Former Employee), Dayton, OHJanuary 14, 2015
Pros: try samples when they arrived
Cons: asking last minute to do things when they knew about it over a week ago.
I learned that everyone communicates through email for almost everything so nothing is forgotten because it is so fast paced.

The hardest part of the job was to learn all of the different computer programs that they used at the same time. It took longer than I thought it would but then again you are learning six or more different ones all at the same time.

Route Sales (Former Employee), Huntington, WVJanuary 13, 2015
Pros: benefits and pay
Cons: managment and hours
A typical day at work was 15hrs non stop from start to finish. I learned a lot about managing my own route properly. Had a lot of good co-workers that were always willing to help. The hardest part of the job was the hours and trying to fit in a home life. The most enjoyable part of the job was working on my own and being responsible for my own route.

District Sales Leader (Current Employee), King of Prussia, PAJanuary 13, 2015
My current day starts early, i am often woken up by phone calls before 5 am, to listen to employees complain. The hardest part of my job is the fact that it never ends, and that i have to be avaialble 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

A strong team work environment.
Production Manager (Current Employee), Orlando, FLJanuary 12, 2015
Team members have full autonomy and are encouraged to make decisions to drive the business forward. Many of the team members are self sufficient and with it being 90 percent automated there a strong need for team members and managers to be technically inclined. This puts the team members at the mercy of the machines many times and with a mediocre preventative maintenance program is the most difficult part of the job as it is out of your control. Opportunity for advancement is a strong point and one of the pluses of the company.

A rough place to work due to how employees are treated.
Part Time Shipper (Former Employee), Williamsport, PAJanuary 12, 2015
At Frito-Lay it was more about the money and keeping their scorecards green rather than employee safety and the treatment of their employees. The conditions were not suitable to do the job they wanted and more and more was frequently asked of their employees while conditions just got poorer. Although I loved the job it was poorly ran and the employees were treated poorly.

Found the position to be intellectualy challenging and fullfilling.
BUSINESS SYSTEMS ANALYST/PROJECT LEAD (Former Employee), Plano, TXJanuary 12, 2015
Pros: challenging position forced me to grow in both my skill set and as subject matter expert
Cons: corporate finally began offshoring the business analysts too and i found myself doing the work of 3, leading me quickly to burnout.
To be honest, at first I was a bit disappointed at not being able to continue my career as a Programmer/Developer (mainly due to out-sourcing), however I was given enough leway to make my new position as a Business Systems Analyst, my own. By being able to 'back into the Business' by being able to read the COBOL code, I was able to quickly underastand the vast complexity of FLNA's 'home-grown code' and was able to uniquely identify myself as an employee who had a full understanding of both the Business and the Technical Side of the Field Sales Accounting. And as the coporate model began to shift more and more towards a fully out-sourced technical development 'shop', the scope of my role continually expanded, as I soon found myself, on any given day, being both a business analyst and technical lead, writing code-specs for new systems requriements for the off-shore, and then taking on the role as QA for the test code coming back to onshore. Furthermore, I was able to find both the Technial and Business issues as they presented themselves.

A ruff early adulthood experience.
Material Handler (Former Employee), Chicago, ILDecember 19, 2014
I never like to be negative, but this was the worst job I ever had in my life. The work environment was always extremely cold, wet, and gloomy. We worked 8 hours a day, 5 days a week, just to only have 15 mins for break...That's it, no 30 minute lunch at all. Not to mention the pay rate was minimum wage for what I believe should have been at least $10 an hour for the high level of physical ability it took to do the job. I serious feel like this job was specifically for people with bad backgrounds just to get their feet in someone doors.
