Not Worth the Headache

Management doesn't care about what you want or need. There is not accountability within the company and the bad employees get away with everything. If you are remotely competent, you will be punished for things you don't do as you will watch those who constantly abuse situations ride away free. They love to offer promises of promotion but when it comes down to it, they will always fall through and something will come up. They dangle a promotion or promise in front of you for months and years. Only way to succeed in Frito Lay is to become friends with upper management, lose yourself and your values and do what they want. You'll move quickly but will make many enemies within the front line. I've been working here for 5 years, and have never seen a good change in policy. They take everything away, including your help when you desperately need it. I've gone through 4 positions trying to move myself up, but at the end of the day they refuse to help me because I have an opinion on how you treat other people and the most important people are the front line employees. If you can save yourself, apply somewhere else. Don't go for the pay, RSR pay is ridiculous, no manager can tell you truthfully how it is done, CSS or DS isn't worth the money. They demand so much on you that work becomes unfun. If you by chance can get yourself into management, life will be easier, but few progress from within. I've worked as a Customer Service Specialist, Customer Development Manager, Route Sales Rep, Customer Service Manager and Delivery Specialist.




No breaks, overtime/no-overtime, no progression within company, raises are not worth anything, management doesn't listen

Boring but easy and pay is good

Like I said, it was boring, but the night shift allowed me to listen to music as long as i was productive, which made the wholeexperience way better. The pay was good,and the work was easy.

HORRIBLE . Would only recommend this job for high school students, people with no children or no life

What is the best part of working at the company?The company store was the best part of working there. Without that benefit it would not be worth it ! What is the most stressful part about working at the company?They don’t care about you at all What is the work environment and culture like at the company?Very high school like. It’s really surprising they’ll still running as is What is a typical day like for you at the company?Working beyond your limits. They play favorites so you have to pick up slack especially if your good at what you do

Can’t keep anyone for a reason

Like every other CG high turnover corporate manufacturing job. Typical point system, favoritism, hostile environment, poor training, old run down machinery, high turnover rate, everyone is miserable, angry, & tired, no life, no work balance, practically live there.Teamwork is a joke! People really act hostile over a couple cents raise to reach their quota, how ridiculous.For being Frito Lay it sure is dirty and roach infested.


Free chips

Good workout daily

Very busy and physical work. Bags of chips are light but start to feel like a workout after 10 hours a day. Pay is decent once you get your own route. Good coworkers. Management is hands off once you get the hang of the job.

No time for family

Never know where you’re gonna be at every week. Probably can’t attend your important family events because you’re probably gonna be scheduled to work.

Below average pay for job

Not much opportunity to advance. Once in position it is hard to move up. Better off going back to school and getting cdl license or college degree. Only way to make money is work lots of overtime

Great Benefits & pay

Loved running a route for Frito-Lay. Great pay & benefits. Work/life balance not so good with me working 10-14 hrs a day though. I ran a low volume country route which was an hour outside of my warehouse so I spent alot of time behind the glass

Structure issues

Lack of management structure. Most of DSL’s are still working from home like Covid still a thing. They’re missing where the tire hits the pavement and don’t keep other employees accountable of their actions.

Tough job, 40-70 hours a week, good pay.

Very early mornings and potentially very long days. Most of the managers are very helpful and do their best to help you succeed. The job pays well but the paychecks can fluctuate a lot. The job can be tough on your body.


Good pay


Early mornings, Long days

Bad work life balance

Poor management and 24/7 availability expected. Management does not care about work life balance. Have to work some weekends and a lot of early mornings.

Good place to work, great pay

Good place to work, great pat and benefits. Only thing that sucks is the runs are on a bid process that goes by seniority, so if you are new you are getting all the runs nobody else wants. And unless you have been working here for a while, days off can vary every week, depending if you are assigned a run or not.

Good Pay & Benefits

The pay is good most jobs you get will be simple and repetitive so it’s easy to learn. Only downside is strict attendance policy and mandatory OT. Which the mandatory OT pay is actually awesome. All in all not a terrible place to work if you can handle manual labor and all the extra hours when required.
