It’s a numbers game
Route Sales Representative (Current Employee) –  CaliforniaMay 20, 2018
It’s all about making sales goals as well as watching expiration dates. You will be expected to make specific sales goals while watching out of dates. Basically it’s a numbers game.
Pros
Co workers were helpful, developed rapport with accounts, got to work without being micromanaged
Cons
Unrealistic sales plans, long hours, constant change of how employees are paid

Not a good place to work.
wearhouse worker (Current Employee) –  MinnesotaMay 20, 2018
The work place environment is not friendly. Too many new people that did not have enough training time and many have bad attitudes. Management doesn’t hold employees accountable for there job requirements and when complaints are brought to the manager nothing is done and nothing changing for the better here.
Pros
Hours always available
Cons
Forced overtime, bad management, unrealistic rate

fast paced but fun environment
Full Time Merchandiser (Current Employee) –  Salem, OR 97302May 20, 2018
Fast paced job, rarely a moment to get bored. Learned customer service and inventory control skills. Management is available whenever things go sideways, otherwise I can go days without talking to/seeing my manager. The early mornings and fast pace can be tiring, but there is a satisfaction in a job well done.
Pros
good pay, fun job
Cons
early start times

Route Sales (Former Employee) –  Muskegon, MIMay 18, 2018
great place to work, but I needed something else for family. The job was physical but fun at times, you got to meet a lot of different people and work inside air conditioning at times.

Good place to work if you are not looking to advance in a career
Sales Merchandiser (Current Employee) –  Bridgeton, MOMay 17, 2018
The hourly wage is not the best but there is opportunity to work overtime. There are no pay raises and management will tell you that it can take 10 to 15 years to advance in the company. Frito does however hire college grads that are under the age of 25 with no work experience to manage their operations.

No Place to Go
Corporate Security Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Plano, TXMay 16, 2018
PepsiCo/Frito-Lay will hire folks but do not promote from within. You may have an attractive offer for a position but do not count on being considered for a promotion even beyond 5-10 years of service unless you have highly specified job experience required for the next role. The company would much rather hire an outsider and pay them less for the role you should be eligible to pursue. In other words, there is not true "career" to be had with PepsiCo/Frito-Lay.

Hard work
Sales Representative (Current Employee) –  Torrance, CAMay 16, 2018
To much work, I don't recommend working for this company. Benefits are good that's about it. I don't have much to say. Very stressful and you have no family or social life.

No Work to Life Balance
Processing Operator (Former Employee) –  San Antonio, TXMay 16, 2018
This company pays well for what you do however there is no life after starting here you will not be given a set schedule and only have 12 hr notification to your work day. taking time off or not accepting overtime is considered against company policy and is punished.

terrible workplace
Route sales representative (Former Employee) –  Alameda, CAMay 15, 2018
they over work and under pay employees which isn't uncommon in today's workforce, but they tell you that depending on how much you sell is how much you will receive in monthly bonus and then give you impossible goals to reach while you still work over time hours you don't get over time pay.

Frito Lay
Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Summit, ILMay 15, 2018
Worst management team ever. They only care about pushing chips into the stores for managements bonuses. They don’t hire from within and getting your own route is at least 3 plus years into the job. A relief position only pays $725 a week and you are covering vacation for the regular route person. If you have a swing position you cover 2 different routes for the regular route persons off days and I can guarantee they slam you with deliveries. They hire newly graduated college students for management positions who clearly have no experience. GOOD LUCK
Cons
No breaks, vaiiable rate overtime after 40 hrs which is about $9 an hour

ROUTE SALES REPRESENTATIVE (Former Employee) –  Belton, TXMay 14, 2018
a typical job some good things and bad things. The pay structure was changed, which made a lot of older employees quite. As a result of this, it took the excitement out of the job.

Disappointed by Management and Culture
Utility Technician (Former Employee) –  Frankfort, INMay 14, 2018
Compared to other work experiences, management was much less helpful and understanding. This harbors a toxic environment in which many co-workers are not helpful or very friendly towards each other. Everyone does the minimum they must and then fools around. Not much community or a sense of all working together.

Zone Sales Administrator, East Tennessee Zone (Current Employee) –  Knoxville, TNMay 14, 2018
Frito-Lay is in the process of becoming fully automated. It is only a matter of time before all administrative functions are phased out. The workforce is being reduced but while more duties are added with no increase in pay.
Pros
Fortune 100 company
Cons
Benefits are sub-standard

District Sales Leader (Former Employee) –  Sylmar, CAMay 13, 2018
This is a great place to learn and grow. I came in as a Route sales representative and made my way up to a District sales manager. The sales quotas were a bit inflated and very tough to hit. An aggressive sales rep could hit the numbers but would have to be even more aggressive the next year. With pay directly related to your sales number, it was hard to make a bonus.
Pros
Developled great relationships internally and externally
Cons
aggresive sales quotas

A monotonous job with good benifits and pay, but expedient.
GES Warehouse Associate (Current Employee) –  Dayville, CTMay 13, 2018
-Typical day at work: This consists of picking/shipping cases, and maintaining cleanly work area.

-What Iv'e gained: experience in team working abilities, feed back skills, problem solving and general social skills. I can confidently say I have grown as an individual at Frito-lay.

-Management: Optimistic, Intelligent, supportive, upper management.
Middle management complete contrary. (more info in cons)

Negative aspects: The hardest part of the job for myself are the hours. Not only too much OT in busy season, but the hours of operation are unfit, and unnatural for humans to work. In the 4 years iv'e worked at Frito-Lay I can say my physical and mental state has declined because of fatigue.

-Good aspects: The great part of working at Frito-lay is the competitive part of the business. I like that people have the ability to improve and move up in the company so long as hard work and merit are put forth. The gross and benefits are also the best in the area in terms of Industrial positions.
Pros
Excellent gross and benefits, ability to move up, professional, hardworking and diligent upper management.
Cons
Inhumane hours (which means no work life balance), job is mundane and repetitive (personal contention), poor quality of middle management. e.g: bad attitude, passive aggressive, condescending, and incompetent.
