Not what it used to be
Route Merchandiser (Former Employee) –  Garner, NCMarch 8, 2017
This company used to be one of prestige and honor to work for. Where the employees felt like they actually meant something. Now it is simply put not what the company can do for you but what can you do for the company which simply put is never enough.The most important people in the organization which are the sales force get treated the worse while upper management sits back and enjoys their quarterly bonuses. While they are looking for their next vacation home some of the employees are struggling just to pay ends meet- and they wonder why the moral is low. Severely overworked and underpaid based on the workload that is expected. A multibillion dollar company that only wants to pay the backbone of the company peanuts.
No voice in any matter because most managers have no backbone so you are on your own. If you wanna go to a company that truly shows they do not care about anything other than bottom line and upper management Pepsi Bottling Ventures is the place for you.
Pros
A job
Cons
Too many to list

High turnaround
bottler (Former Employee) –  Garner, NCFebruary 22, 2017
There aren't too many people who stay at this place. The more you do, the more they expect, but without compensation. They hire supervisors off the street with NO experience.
Pros
reduced soda prices.
Cons

The pay is better than other jobs of the same type.
Merchandiser (Current Employee) –  Salt Lake City, UTJanuary 27, 2017
The basic job is reasonably simple, and I don't mind getting my workout at work. I typically work between eight and twelve hours per day moving between a couple hundred and a thousand cases of product. I would say that the difficult part of the job is not the work itself, dealing with multiple different managers at Pepsi with different styles and expectations is one difficult aspect, however it is the approximately twenty managers and receivers at the various stores and their different approaches and expectations multiplied by the different Pepsi supervisors and their expectations that really makes it difficult.
Pros
better pay than most vendors
Cons
too many managers to please

It was a good job. It was physically demanding but the people were good and the work was not too difficult. I got to work independently and I was free to make decisions.

QA was a great position, work place ok.
Quality Control Inspector/Machine Operator (Former Employee) –  Flagstaff, AZDecember 6, 2016
When I join this company, I notice it needed some help, area in improvement, procedures in production. the quality of testing and the time. the personal always short staff, this caused disappointment in moral, stress, and uncooperative working environment. down time always an issue, wrong cans, wrong caps colors on bottles, dents in can, sanitation seemed to be lacking approved procedures from company. I written procedures with health and food regulations to be approved by federal guidelines. Procedures were corrected and up dated.
Pros
four days with twelve hour, gave us three days off
Cons
No area for breaks or lunch area.

Account Manager (Current Employee) –  Shreveport, LAOctober 31, 2016
The work isn't hard, lack of educated co workers which makes you have to work a lot harder. If the workers under you don't do their job you're accountable for their lack of work. I enjoy however not being stood over all day by upper management
Pros
Outdoor freedom
Cons
Terrible management
