Multi Machine Operator/Facility Safety Coordinator (Former Employee) – Garner, NC – January 13, 2018
Working at PBV was rewarding, fast paced and challenged me physically and mentally. Work hours are crazy but it keeps you on top of your game. Good solid work atmosphere for those who are up to the challenge.
Im in the business on the floor (Current Employee) – Garner, NC – January 12, 2018
Ive been working at PBV for a year. I work 3rd shift. I love the folks i work with. We are a team and get along well, which is a good thing because, i have no home life really. Because Pepsi Bottling takes it all up. I work for wweks in a row. Then you get maybe a day off and it back to Pepsi for countless days again. They need to hire more and actually train people. Its throw you in the river to learn to swim here folks.
No arguments at home, because you are at work all the time.

This is a very good, yet fast paced company to work for. There is a lot of multitasking involved in my current position with the company. This is sometimes difficult, yet rewarding when you get the job done
Forklift Operator and Material Handler (Former Employee) – Winston-Salem, NC – November 28, 2017
Standard OSHA requires to complete a Forklift and Truck Bed checklist. Forklift operators in shipping used numbers to properly stock truck beds\ loading docks to get ready for shipping. Loaded products weighing up to 1,700 pounds on trailers for delivery.
A typical day would be starting off with a meeting to let us know what our production was the day before and to come. you than began to work building orders on a pallet loading and unloading them at a fat past using forklifts and walkie riders. the management is great and the workplace culture is relaxed.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Mooresville, NC – November 7, 2017
Hard labor. In a day's work, you probably deal with a total of 30,000 or more pounds. Consistently lifting at a fast pace between 10 and 50 pounds. A typical workday is around 12 hours and 60 hours a week. management is pretty good until you get hurt. Then they find ways of replacing you. Two different dates were sent in from my doctor over a broken foot. I was released because the dates didn't match. The most enjoyable part of the job is meeting people. The least enjoyable is the long 60 hour week.
Swing Merchandiser (Former Employee) – North Carolina – October 21, 2017
Work can be overwhelming yet gives a challenge to work smart not hard. Work alone the entire day. May have anywhere from 3-5 stores to work product. Great thing was its Pepsi and no matter the store the products stays the same. Like the job handling skills and keeping contact with plant manager and store managers on duty.
Pepsi is very demanding and competitive. The manager was not very likeable. The supervisors will take the customers side over you in any event. The hours were demanding and long and I was never home and the pay did not match the work and also it was detrimental to my back pain.
Pepsi bottling ventures is a growing and productive company. The benefits, workplace culture, and learning experience is well worth it. The most enjoyable part of the job is job security and working at a steady pace.
You come in and stock what you need and load up the line up. stock pallets up. I will clean up and pre-start the machiene before everyone else come in. I will drive around on the forklift and help everyone else out.
