I would never recommend anyone work at this company.
Route Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Sterling Heights, MI – November 13, 2017
As a route driver at Frito-Lay, you will start work very early and work a minimum of 10 hours, sometimes up to 14. You will need to juggle a variety of tasks and customer personalities at a very brisk pace to complete your day within DOT limits. Frito-Lay is a very numbers driven company and while some managers are fair and reasonable, others harass about numbers at every opportunity regardless of circumstances. Management in this company has a long standing record of setting up job tasks in a manner such that no average person is able to accomplish them on a day to day basis. They do this so that they are able to document an employees (who are often unionized) shortcomings at will, thereby allowing them to remove anyone who becomes wise to the game. A challenging job is one thing, but Frito-Lay sets its employees up for failure rather than success.
On paper, this company has a wonderful culture and they truly are an equal opportunity employer. They have no choice in this, however, due to their revolving door mentality and the fact that they are always strapped for qualified applicants who meet their requirements/expectations.
The most difficult part of this job is meeting the expectations which have been set before you when you sign on, because you will discover that, on many routes, the tasks at hand are simply unmanageable in the manner the company asks.
The best part of this job is meeting new people and the fact that you are able to change routes once in awhile if you wish.
