Merchandiser (Former Employee) – Denver, CO 80216 – February 8, 2018
While I felt that PepsiCo was a good overall company to work for, I felt that attempting to advance in some areas were extremely difficult. It seemed increasingly difficult to move from being a general merchandising representative. I attempted to move into different positions as soon as I could for advancement and was never given concrete information on how.
Sell in Pepsi beverages products up to 100 corporate and privately owned stores weekly. Managed all aspects of the business in a assigned territory. Serve as the face of the company and key contact to corporate and store management providing superior customer service.
Decent pay (55k) and good benefits. Great schedule. Aggressive sales experience
Stressful, Hard to get promoted, Forced case sales and complain about OOD numbers, Only promote campus hires.

Working at Pepsi is fast paced but also a place you can grow a great career. In this career you can advance to becoming a better you and also grow into learning the business and move towards management. At Pepsi they allow you to show your worth and they do promote you accordingly. Just a real great company to work for as a career.
Front-line Management (Former Employee) – Colorado – February 7, 2018
Potentially longer days to ensure all required reporting gets done. Flexible schedule if there are times that you need to break away for personal matters. Pay increases are regulated in any position change. Whether it is a 1 level increase or a 5 level increase, the same increase in pay is provided which is on the lower side of the scale. Supporting prematurely launched changes from headquarters is a difficult task to succeed with. The relationships developed within the workplace is the most enjoyable part of the company.
Flexibility to attend personal obligations if needed
"One size fits all mindset" that requires all locations to do things the same way
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – New Delhi, IL – February 7, 2018
As one of my first employers, I had an immense learning at PepsiCo. I was fortunate to get some of the best mentors who helped me shape my thought process and approach at work. Gave me exposure to different roles.
I get to my area and start my basic inspections: assure that the packaging complies with: proper seals, correct codes, paper printing, filling volume and air quantity. Ensure that the products are attractive to the consumer both in appearance and taste. The managment is very unorganized and have a huge problem: communication. That problem put us in a lot of unnecessary stress.
My experience at Pepsi as an intern was awful. I did not learn anything that had to do with my major or job description. I had to clean the warehouse for most of the summer. The workplace culture was not encouraging whatsoever.
