Great company and environment to work at. Opportunities for advancement.
Shop Lead (Former Employee) –  Fresno, CAMarch 31, 2016
Worked in Pepsi's refurbishment department my entire ten plus years with the company. Great work atmosphere and many opportunities for advancement in job title and compensation.
Excellent experiences working on vending machines and refrigeration coolers were your creative thinking and problem solving skills were required in turning used units into "like new" ones.
Started with 12 refurbishment departments across U.S in 2004.. Fresno plant was the very last to close in May 2015. Company transitioned to new equipment only, which are covered under warranty by manufacturer.
Pros
Advancement opportunities and excellent working environment.
Cons
Overtime was constantly required. Usually worked Mon-Fri ten hours a day and half days on Saturdays

It is a very productive and fast past call center
Customer Equipment Service Rep (Former Employee) –  Salem, NCMarch 29, 2016
It is a very fast past job. You have to use multiply screens and learn a lot of things in 8weeks of training . You mostly learn from has hands on. Management is not that friendly did not like to answer question . They like to stay in there office at times not very professional as they should. Very could place to learn how to use a score cards and to be productive. Love the overtime pay that they offered. Did not like the fact that they only gave 10 cent raises.
Pros
lots of overtime
Cons
have to learn stuff on your own

Great learning experience and workout.
Merchandiser (Former Employee) –  Kalamazoo, MIFebruary 24, 2016
I absolutely loved working for Pepsi the management was great when I worked there and had really hardworking coworkers. In a typical day I would drive store to store stocking shelves and rotating our product. It was a fun work environment but definitely a physically exhausting job at times. The hardest part was probable when we would have a 10/$10 sale on 2 liters while also having a buy 3 get 3 free sale at the same time. I have learned so many good work skills and time management skills while working for Pepsi. My favorite part of the job that I enjoyed the most was interacting with other merchandisers and customers.
Pros
Keeps you in shape, good management, good hourly pay, gas compensation
Cons
Physically exhausting, work weekends and holidays.

Awful experience with poor management and bad attitudes
Shipper (Former Employee) –  Colorado Springs, COFebruary 10, 2016
Out of my 8+ years of work experience this job was BY FAR the worst. Sure the pay is great and you receive benefits the day you start, but that excitement only lasts so long. It seems as if everyone absolutely hates being there and you feel the tension the moment you walk in the door. They over work you and there is absolutely NO teamwork. I was so excited to get this job because the pay was great and it was only a mile or so away from my house. Well after 6 months, an infected cut, and a stress fracture in my foot from an absurd amount of pressure and hours put on it. I cannot stress enough to STAY AWAY from this job. Its just not worth the stress....trust me

Experience depends greatly on your manager
Marketing Manager (Former Employee) –  Plano, TXFebruary 8, 2016
The marketing organization is constantly in flux due to two factors: 1. The company's rapid rotation policy (a net positive) and 2. A fast-moving, Type-A culture which can be great if you fit a very specific (read uptight) mold known as Pepsi Pretty, but which also has a tendency to burn out people; creating high employee churn.
Pros
Get to work with great brands
Cons
A lot of high-achieving individual contributors with no business managing people, No matching 401K contributions until you've been with the company for 3 years.

Supervisor/Manager (Former Employee) –  Urbandale, IAMarch 25, 2016
I do not recommend working here. Senior Leadership does not care about the people that work for them, only sales goals to pad their own resumes. Work/life balance doesn't exist. Leadership refers to the job as a "lifestyle", not a career. Company has gone through multiple "restructurings" since PepsiCo purchased the two Anchor Bottlers a few years ago. They just keep cutting and cutting and cutting while lining the pockets of their Executives and investors while asking what is left of front line and lower management to give more and more of themselves. The driver job is the worst job in the company. The pay is not worth the job requirements.
Pros
Weekends off unless short-staffed(which happens most of the time)
Cons
Very little

Receptionist/Data Entry/Customer Service (Former Employee) –  Holden, MAFebruary 17, 2016
A typical day as a receptionist can be very busy between answering and directing calls to entering data into the database. There were many aspects to this job. Customer service was very important and I liked speaking with the customers.
Pros
Friendly atmosphere, team support during very busy times, health care was 100% at the time
Cons
pay raise was not much

Unorganized, lack of communication, bad pay/salaries and the worst benefits
CDL DELIVERY ROUTE TRUCK DRIVER (Former Employee) –  Flagstaff, AZ 86004March 3, 2016
This company was very unorganized. It was the worst pay/salary I was paid and the health benefits were awful. Schedules consist on early mornings and end with late nights with no help on delievery routes. Drivers had to merchandise product and never could get ahold of any of the supervisors. Sales men made up orders for stores.
Pros
None
Cons
salary, benefits and unorganized

Heavy workload and responsibility, good company for pay and benefits
Lead Admin (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GAJanuary 20, 2016
Extremely busy day typical, great deal of responsibility with limited time to achieve some tasks. Management expectations sometimes not realistic given some employee's ability. Potential to learn several different areas of the business, and improve skill set.
Pros
Pay, benefits, opportunity to learn new things
Cons
Workload, short or no breaks

Long hours, but Great benefits
Merchandising Manager (Current Employee) –  USAOctober 9, 2015
Pepsi is a great company to work for. They are very invested in their employees and thus provide great health and retirement benefits. Employees are normally very competitive and dedicated to their work, often making the work week far over the normal 40 hours. Compensation does not reflect this overtime, though, which is a significant downside. Advancement is very possible because management is constantly looking for ways to develop their employees and reward them for their hard work and long hours. Breaking out of the sales realm seems difficult without a graduate degree.
Pros
Rapid advancement, healthcare, 401k, supportive management
Cons
long hours, work-life balance, number driven

too much work for too little buck
Truck Driver / Delivery Specialist (Current Employee) –  Statesville, NCFebruary 27, 2016

Pros

Cons
money

They take care of you pretty well
Merchandiser (Former Employee) –  Yuba City, CAMarch 10, 2016
Lots of benefits, but there is little room for growth unless you have a college degree. Even if you get one during employment, it is unlikely that you will be promoted.
Pros
good benefits and lots of extras
Cons
extremely labor intensive, can do a number on your back

Warehouseman/Certifier/Night Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Lawton, OKJanuary 4, 2016
Pepsi seems to have a good idea about work/life balance. Compensation is fair and in some cases more than fair. The facility i worked at seemed like family. Good way for a entry level employee to start and learn the business.
Pros
pay and benefits
Cons
must be willing to relocate to advance. slow advancement

Revolving door for drivers and CRT's
Delivery Driver (Current Employee) –  Chattanooga, TNDecember 21, 2015
First and foremost,the pay is lacking $629 base salary plus commission......commission which is 4 cents on cases you drop off and 9 cents for cases you stock. Pretty much keep your pay weekly under $1000 . transportation supervisor,doesn't even possess a Class A CDL,how can you manage drivers in a field you know nothing about? Don't waste your time applying here, apply with Coca-Cola,their drivers always happy and well compensated
Pros
purchase drinks at cost
Cons
pay sucks. summer time you might be out till night fall. 15 stops
