Filling orders for customers and pushing product to get them interested to purchase more product. The hours were normal and not to strenuous as most jobs. However the pay was awful and the raises were minimal at best.
Pepsi MidAmerica. Worst company i've ever worked for.

unless your looking for working 60+ hours a week at less then min wage. DON'T Apply. The main office n marion is always looking for reasons to deduct your pay. never had to worry about my employer robbing me. This company will give you a raise and take it way. Claiming that your raise has expired. never heard of a raise expiring.
Diesel Mechanic (Former Employee) – Marion, IL – January 28, 2014
Place is ridiculously stupid to work for. You get a write up for working overtime. got fired for breaking something while installing it. drivers tear up these trucks way worse than what i did and they never get wrote up. Just plain stupid company to work for.
CDL Driver (Current Employee) – Sikeston Mo, Out of Marion IL – December 28, 2013
Every aspect about this job is horrible.
The start pay is 500$ a week salary. Which after hiring costs and uniforms(yes, you pay for both) is about 375$ a week. You eventually get put on commission where I if you sell enough cases you can earn more per week. The per case rate is so low you have to deliver 500-600 cases per day to even equal your normal psycheck.
Don't ever plan on being home. A normalmore... route day depending on how much driving you do can take 10-12 hours to complete even with a driver helper. After you are done delivering cases you have paperwork which takes 30-60 minutes then you can leave. Start time is 6am. Leave when you get done.
A typical week is 50+ hours. Some weeks are 60+.
Management is very disorganized and communication is nonexistent.
Working conditions are bad. Some trucks have no heat or air. Equipment is in bad shape. All trailers have lift gates and several barely work.
You are always shorthanded. Customers know and expect bad service.

Pepsi out of Marion IL is privately owned. Its not the same as the other companies reviewed on this site. Do your homework before taking a job at this company. Over promise /under deliver on pay, benefits, culture, and work/family balance. Very unethical intimidating environment. . High turnover says it all.
Line Take Away/Warehouse Selector (Current Employee) – St. Louis, MO – August 27, 2013
My daily work consists of driving a fork lift to transport the product from one end of the production line to a trailer or to be stored in the warehouse. My job is to also make sure that the product code is accurate according to the specification. Working for my employer challenges to me to be detail oriented and punctual. The work environment is filled with much team work in order to get the job done efficiently and effectively.
Inventory/ Billing Clerk (Former Employee) – Reserve, LA – August 26, 2013
I enjoyed working at Pepsi. I worked well with my co-workers as well as management. The hardest part of the job was having to start my day at 2am. The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to interact with the customers.
merchandiser (Former Employee) – Effingham – July 29, 2013
Horrible human and constitutional right violations. Deplorable un healthy environments to work in. Not family friendly, not employee friendly, low wages, low milage, hardly any benefits. DO NOT TAKE THIS JOB!
Low payrate, lack of benefits and advancement opportunity
claw operator (forklift driver) (Current Employee) – Marion, IL – June 3, 2013
After almost 4 years at this place, my pay has only went up to 10.55/ hr. It started at 9. I also work the same shift as when i started despite my urging for advancement. The best thing about this job is that I know that it is steady work and will be there until I find something that i feel betters my work environment.
Merchandiser (Former Employee) – Twinsburg, OH – May 12, 2013
Daily restocking of the shelves at multiple retail accounts. Learned time management, organization, and relationship building. Hardest part was working every weekend. Most enjoyable part was being part of events to build product awareness.
