Unfortunately I didn't in time! I went through the testing process this past Wednesday 11-6-2013 ,and failed the black box test :( , But I was told I get another try at it in 6 months if there's openings in that position! I really wanted that job..been unemployed far to long!

Once your hired they will help u get trained. So don't worry your good to go and the only thing with frito is seniority. Good company to work for under PEPSICO.
