Quality Control Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Wichita, KSSeptember 19, 2017
Being a first time Supervisor was a very huge working experience. You are as good as a Supervisor depending on the dedication of your team. I was given a team of long tenor employees who were always negative about everything. It's hard to motivate employees that are always unhappy. I put a valuable effort to provide leadership to these employees but without any success.
Pros
Salary and Bonuses
Cons
Strain on the family and career ambtions

Great Place to work
Maintenance Mechanic (Former Employee) –  Toledo, OHSeptember 19, 2017
You wont be disappointed. The only flaw with the Toledo plant is the HR Rep is horrible. Your better off going online yourself to figure things out. She is young and is learning. Told me she would pay for my schooling and come to find out, that is not an option. People complain about her quite often. Management is great though. No issues ever. You are recognized for a great job. Maintenance department is underpaid compared to the line workers. With 1 dollar difference, I would recommend being an operator.
Pros
Everything
Cons
HR department

Its a job
Merchandiser/ General Labor (Former Employee) –  Estherville, IASeptember 18, 2017
Pepsico is a job. Just like any other job it gets you from point A to point B. Normally there is a lot of turnover because it is a corporate job. If you want to advance in a career you have to be willing to be good at your job but great. If you are great at your job they will want to keep you in it for the fear of loosing you.

Material Handler II (Former Employee) –  Modesto, CASeptember 18, 2017
You are paid well to operate a stand up fork lift. There will be times you can be force to work overtime, and extra 4 hours with little notice. You are provided free bags of chips to eat on your breaks.

If they dont like you you are out
Merchandiser (Former Employee) –  Riverside, CASeptember 18, 2017
Political, not matter how hard you work it does not matter if you arent kissing someones butt. Pay was not enough for what we do. People are great out in the trade. Management does not know what they are doing they came from college but not all are business majors, or even had business experience.
Pros
Great people
Cons
Horrible management team

Lies, Lies, and more Lies
RSR (Former Employee) –  Portland, ORSeptember 18, 2017
Interviewed and hired for 1 route, given a more inferior route. Told 48 hour work week, averaged 60+. No holiday pay until over 600 hours worked. You are told you are in charge of your route but not really. You are told you will receive proper training, but not even close. You better have a great understanding of the grocery business and of the soda business and of dealing with LONG days and 18 bosses and 40 texts daily.
Pros
benefits?
Cons
LOOONG Days and NO LIFE

absolutley no support from management. trucks and equipment was not well kept, frequent breakdowns. not well maintained.
Truck driver/ Delivery and Merchandise (Former Employee) –  Georgetown, SCSeptember 15, 2017
the issues has and will continue to cause high turnover in the drivers/help. if the upper level management would take a concern in what the drivers who do the job on a daily basis have to say, I think it would be a different situation.

typical day at work
Large Format Sales Representative (Current Employee) –  Denver, COSeptember 15, 2017
As a large format sales rep you are responsible for typically 2-5 stores depending on volume. Your day starts at 3:30am and ends when you have everything taken care of in your stores. It varies widely. You could be done at 11:30am one day but not til 5pm the next day. At the stores you merchandise product from the backroom to the sales floor. Write orders on an ipad to have product delivered the next day. You also deal with managers on a daily basis discussing the weekly display planners while trying to upsell additional product onto the sales floor. Fast paced hard work with lots of repetitve lifting usually no more than 5lbs. Good job that pays above the national average. you get a base + commission as well as get paid overtime. You will always work holidays but will get paid extra for working them.
Pros
pay, benefits, company ipad and iphone that can also be used for personal use, taking lunch flexibility, freedom of kinda being on your own
Cons
not being able to take off during holiday weeks

Working for pepsi is competitive and rewarding. There's room to grow. Any normal day at work is a little hectic but not everyday. It works better with team work.
