Sales Merchandiser (Former Employee) – Harrisburg, PA – April 12, 2017
Everyday seems harder than the last if you don't stay organized and ready to work the next day. The pay and benefits almost outweigh the physical and emotional stress. There are plenty of opportunities for advancement as long as you can survive long enough to see them through.
Sales Account Representative (Current Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – April 12, 2017
Working for Pepsi Beverages Company/PBC is a great way to learn the sales field. Typically work 10 or more work hour days if full committed to sell. I learned a lot about Business to Business sales and how to utilizes gross profit numbers to do local sell ins. My co-workers in the plant are all great people, knowledgeable and help train each other up to greatness. Hardest part about this job is dealing with some customers with aggressive tones and how to sell to them during those times when they are frustrated. Greatest part of this job is all the new people you meet, the traveling and freedom you have to run your route your way.
Freedom to run your route and meeting new people
management communication is horrible always late and wrong most times.
A lot of fun, especially if you're a basketball or hockey fan
Merchandise Sales (Current Employee) – Denver, CO – April 11, 2017
This job is definitely my favorite job that I've had. It is a very relaxed environment, most of the customers are there to kick back and enjoy themselves. The pay is very nice, you make $50 per night, which is roughly $10 per hour, plus you make commission on top of that depending on how much sales all of the store make, so there is extra incentive to be a helpful salesperson. The only drawbacks are that most of the hours available are only during game nights, which will get you between 13 and 17 days of work a month, and there is hardly any work available during the offseason, so you'll need to find something else from April - October.

Bulk Customer Representative (Former Employee) – St. Louis, MO – April 10, 2017
Love the company and atmosphere. Your shift can range in between 10 to 13 hours. You get paid every Friday and can make in between 50k to 60k a year. It's hard on your body and vehicle but the quotas and sales are unrealistic at times because the soda industry is declining. It comes down to how good of a sales rep you are.
A typical day at work is very productive and definitely physical labor. You need to be a athlete to do this job. Your constantly moving at a fast pace. The hardest part about the job is working with the pallet jacks and knowing how to operate it properly. The most enjoyable part of the job is knowing you loaded the pallet correctly and that its finished so you can now go on to the next. You feel successful.
Assistant to the President (Current Employee) – Marion, IL – April 9, 2017
I have worked here since January 2012 and moved quickly to Assistant to President. I think workplace culture is fairly typical - some pretty managers are encouraging, some not so much. I have enjoyed my jobs most of the time. My day starts with reconciling production from previous day which is basically data entry, then I move on for the majority of the day anticipating what products will need to be purchased and brought into warehouse for sales.
People I work with directly
Vacation benefits are stagnant at 2 weeks, no sick days & one personal day a year
The job was a blast. it was hard work but fun work. the management there treated you with respect and dignity. any problem you had it was dealt with and equipment was keept up the best they could for the staff available
Director (Former Employee) – Michigan – April 8, 2017
I worked for PepsiCo for 28 years. Obviously I would not have stayed if I thought it was bad place to work. As with any company, the environment is dictated by the leadership. Over my 28 years I have seen the good and the bad. Unfortunately, the bigger the company grew, the culture slowly declined.
Never Boring, Fast Paced, Competitive, Energetic Company, Good Compensation and Benefits, Modest Advancement Opportunities but heavily swayed toward diversity, Secure, Stable Company, Innovative and Forward Thinking for Longevity
Very Little Family/Life Balance, Advancement Opportunities do not go to most qualified candidate, Diversity trumps qualifications, Bad Culture, Business Objectives Over People, HR and Finance Run the Company
to much attention is spent on union needs and not on the how it effects the entire team. there is to much politics in the management style. I loved my job, i just didnt like being moved around to other jobs without notice. I loved what I did and was made to feel like I wasn't important enough.
