Great company if you like work more than living
Route Sales Representative (Current Employee) – Ely, NV – November 7, 2016
Five years with this company has showed me that Pepsi stock holders matter more than anything else in this company. Four years of 55+ hours per week and 10% commission, I grew and grew sales and did very well, it was tough but worth it for the good pay, equipment and work environment were junk. Now they introduce performance pay that cuts my pay 40% with the same workload and no leeway or negotiating whatsoever, basically they say take it or leave, you're replaceable. The new pay system is socialism. I live in a remote area and have a larger workload than most other areas meaning a sell more and do more than most and everyone is making close to the same salary... not fair in my eyes. pay is based on performance to sales plan and sales plan is set by your growth rate and someones idea of how sales should be. go over plan and great, you'll get a good check, but then plan catches up to you and you struggle to reach it. Not able to get plan? Your pay is reduced drastically for going under plan. Have a good sales year? good luck hitting your numbers and getting your full salary next year. this system is turning over achievers into average lazies. Good job Frito lay.
A lot expected of you, you are very replaceable no matter how good you really are
