Great if you want a ton of hours and don't want to worry about accountability.
Material Handler/Forklift Operator (Former Employee) –  Indianapolis, INJanuary 16, 2019
If you have no life and want a lot of money, this is the place to go. Management doesn't ever really deal with any problems, just lets them get worse.
Pros
Benefits, hours, decent wage, can pretty much do whatever you want
Cons
Poor organization, management doesnt care about anything, people do whatever they want so if you're a hard worker, dont bother working hard.

poor standards
ROUTE SALES REP (Current Employee) –  WisconsinJanuary 15, 2019
no communication. They just leave you in a unheated warehouse with no bathroom or water to load your truck. No follow up from management. If you work here your on your own unless they need something.

Packaging Machine Operator (Former Employee) –  Topeka, KSJanuary 15, 2019
Great place to work. Great pay. Not a lot of time off if you want to advance. Fast paced environment and helpful management. I loved my job and it was sad having to leave.

would not recommend to my worst enemy
warehouser (Current Employee) –  Earth City, MOJanuary 15, 2019
Extremely poor management team. Clueless on the day to day operations. Most of their time is spent in the office ( referred to by team members as "the Frat House") on their phones and lap tops laughing and giggling.. Selective enforcement on nearly all of the work related accountabilities, including the attendance policy. Little to no engagement by team members. Poor scheduling for work coverage by mgmt. team. No accountability for job code integrity or productivity. A lot of lazy, incompetent team members are permitted to make probation because of being under staffed on a consistent basis.
Pros
unlimited overtime
Cons
mandatory OT, poor mgmt, hostile work environment

Frito lay has a horrible turn over rate because they don't train ppl properly and overwork their employees, The only thing I enjoyed about the job was my customer's out on my routes.

Hard place to work
Processing Operator Technician (Former Employee) –  Frankfort, INJanuary 14, 2019
If you have a family you better get use to not seeing them! Management can tell you when you are clocking out that they need you to stay 4 more hours! There is no balance between work life and home life. They treat you like a number. They know they can replace you in a heartbeat so they don't care about you period. They only give raises once a year and that's only if they make a profit! Don't work here unless you have no life because this place will be your life! Run!
Pros
None
Cons

District Sales Leader (Former Employee) –  Oklahoma City, OKJanuary 14, 2019
You will gain valuable skills but a lot will be demanded of you and your schedule may not be yours to truly control. Overall leadership is great and they do their best to help you become a better professional. Just need to be flexible with your life and time.

great place to work if you dont have a family
Packaging Machine Operator (Former Employee) –  Jonesboro, ARJanuary 14, 2019
Frito lay is a great place to work if your dont really have a home life or anything outside of work that requires your time. The benefits, 401k, insurance and pay are all great and you will make great pay but be prepared to work long hours and work 6 to 7 days a week alot of times. they also have a tendency to hire people who are under qualified for the job. there interview and hire process is way to long to not hire quality operators for fellow workers to work with. all in all very good pay but it comes with alot of stress and questionable calls from management.

A nice place to make some money and grow
Route Sales Representative (Current Employee) –  Medley, FLJanuary 13, 2019
This company requires some abilities to act, think and make decisions fast, working efficiently is necessary (a lot of pressure and short time). They patiently teach you everything and help you to improve. Good attitude

Forget social life and having a good time with family every holiday, those days more working hours needed
Pros
Good Salary and Benefits. Nice people, good actitude
Cons
No social life and working every holiday is necessary

Hard work is expected but the pay is good.
Material Handler/Forklift Operator (Current Employee) –  Phoenix, AZ 85027January 12, 2019
Very busy during all the holidays so long hours are sometimes expected. They provide good benefits for their employees and are fair in the standards they expect from everyone.

WATER TREATMENT OPERATOR (Former Employee) –  Orlando, FLJanuary 12, 2019
There are roles that can maximize strengths in a variety of ways. Frito Lay strives for a culture of inclusion and has a strong focus on safety. There are different shifts depending on role and business needs. I made many good friends during my time with the company and still stay in touch with them.

a good company to work for
Management, in general, are transparent about where the company is heading. Challenging work, long hours, but rewarding. More emphasis on promoting younger associates.

Frito-Lay, all the way!

Pros
Free chips and sodas provided by the company, on occasion
Cons
Difficult to get large raises

Great job, long hours, hard work
Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) –  West Valley City, UTJanuary 7, 2019
I left this job because I was attending University simultaneously and I couldn't keep up with the hours. The job is extremely physically demanding and the hours are long. You will likely not have a choice of which shift you are on so if you should be willing to work any schedule.
Pros
Lots of pay. Professional environment.
Cons
Long hours. Extremely physically demanding.

Deal with a lot of different people. Learn the sales world, but also learn how to interact with people. Frito Lay its a lot of finding your own way to make sales to make through work.
