Frustrating, but they pay well

They pay well enough with decent benefits for how much of your being you are required to dedicate to this job. It takes a toll. It's physical work, and they seem annoyed with breaks being taken, which is odd. The workload seems inconsistent, some days you're finished early. They make silly rules that are just frustrating. Some of the managers are wonderful people, but the overall structure is obviously unorganized and doesn't seem to be as supportive of workers as you'd think a giant corporation like frito lay should be.

Areas for improvement

  • Sense of belonging

Its what you make it.

Not a bad job if you make it work for you. Training is good and long. Many work a ton of hours because they are not efficient. They eliminated the position that helped people order and merchandise quickly and accurately.

Managers are very negative.

This company is not trying to retain employees. You will get written up during training and probation period, for minor reasons. Until they terminate you or make you quit.

Could be better

Managers come off lazy sometimes (asking you for info they know they have on file). Merchandisers getting penalized for RSR issues. Severe lack of communication and teamwork from all ends.

Great place to work

Great place to work. Great company and great people. Awesome benefits, awesome retirement plan. as a RSA be willing to travel for coverage if you don’t like traveling it’s not a job for you. Pay is great best kept secret job ever.

Pros

None

Cons

Not a con but expect to be away from home sometimes as a RSA

Pay is good, work life balance needs improving

I am a part time saniation worker and my pay is fair, 8+ over minimum wage. As a part timer there is no forced overtime, I would not recommend going full time because the forced overtime is crazy at the moment.

Pros

Good pay

Cons

worklike balance challenging for full timers

Route sales representative

The job is physically demanding but I find that to be good as It is good for me and I prefer it to being behind a desk. My direct manager was the worst thing about this job as they were very inattentive and would get information to us late. Also would not perform duties causing issues with employees and customers. The job has very little oversight which is a good thing allowing the employee to focus on the job. The plant will send a lot of extra product that you do not order and this makes the job more difficult than it needs to be. Overall though I would recommend the company and find them a better than average place to work.

Everything was fine except for management

Think twice. No Unions and never honor what were said. Whenever you have a question for your manager, don't be surprise if they can't answer you. Always giving excuses that they're busy. Favoritism at its finest. Don't tell you a lot of stuff during the TWO days orientation. Once you started working here, you got to figure it out all by yourselves. Got to check with the seniors before actually asking manager as they are fresh graduates, inexperienced in any warehouse position and not knowing the company's handbook and guidelines well. Most importantly, don't get held accountable for false information is given. All the best

Hard work but decent pay

Frito-Lay is a repetitive physical job in the plant / warehouses. You get paid well but you are expected to uphold your productivity numbers. Three periods in a row of not hitting your productivity rate and you will be written up. Continue poor performance and you will lose your job. Hey was double time on your 7th Day working which is pretty good, don't think a lot of companies offer that anymore. 401k Insurance in 401K plans are decent. A store where you can get discount prices on Frito-Lay food. Orlando plant is very old not any room to grow so it's hot and old Warehouse.

Decent

The pay is good, I don't think they really work with you if you have a life outside of work. They want you there all the time. You never know when you really have a off day. This job is not good for someone that has small children at home. You will never see them

overall its ok

Working for frito lay defineatly has its ups and downs but it is a good job with a good company. The only thing I wish was having a steady schedule and know what time you will be off.

Not for me

If you enjoy having your job run your life this job is for you. If you have worked at any factor you already know what it’s like . In the way ! Pay is decent when u work the forced overtime .

Terrible management

It’s a job no help from management if you like working alone it’s great but don’t expect any help during holidays and you will work every holiday except Christmas

Good pay, hard job

If you don't mind little sleep, but making good money, this job is for you. Unless you been there for 20 years, don't expect to get good vacation requests or routes with weekends off. Everything there is based off seniority, doesn't matter how good of a worker you are.

alright

Its a alright paying job. Sometime there is a lot of work and sometimes you just stand there. Fulltime workers are forced to work 6 days, 12 hours. Machines do not work at all which makes work harder.

Pros

Pay, free chips, breaks, no supervision

Cons

Forced overtime, management are aweful, understaffed, machines dont work

Designed for single people that have no social life. Can’t take a family vacation when the family is off for school
