Surprisingly hard on your body
Route Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Louisville, KY 40299June 28, 2019
This is a hard labor job. A lot of people think thats not the case because you are dealing with potato chips and they are not heavy. However imagine lifting, kneeling and reaching and doing strenuous movements for 10 - 12 hours a day, every day and then you will understand. The most common injuries among employees are knees requiring surgery and messed up rotator cuff. Company expectations are also ridiculous high. Once on the road you will be a one man operation. Driving, merchandising, selling, putting up displays and ordering. If you work with bulk accounts expect to deliver anywhere from 40 to 100 cases of product depending the time of the year and the store. Completely unrealistic sales plans that end up tons of stale product at the end of the month and you will end up getting blamed for. Expect to work even harder during holidays. The pay is decent but soon you realize it’s a dead end job. You need to have a bachelors in order to advance with the company and thats why most of the managers are 23 year olds straight out of college sitting behind a desk already making way more than you.
Pros
Pay, 2 weeks vacation, working with no supervision
Cons
Hard on the body, no support from management, dealing with store managers

OTR Driver (Former Employee) –  Aberdeen, MDJune 28, 2019
Pay, benefits and retirement excellent. Management did communicate yet fail to communicate more than most. However very approachable with any issue. HR excellent. Physical labor 95%

Well, at least the money's good
Production Worker (Former Employee) –  Vancouver WAJune 27, 2019
Don't expect any briefing or training regarding the union you're joining or how it works. For someone who is unfamiliar with how unions work, your coworkers will try to use union seniority to bully you out of scheduled positions. If anything like bullying or harrassment gets reported to the managers, it will fall on deaf ears, as they don't want managers above them to know they're incapable of handling their job. Nobody really seems to care about safety here, despite them constantly giving people refresher courses on safety, etc. Safety shortcuts are the norm. The concept of TEAMWORK is just absolutely lost on most people. Everyone seems to be miserable and staying in their position to be able to provide for their families. So if you're broke and really need to afford life on the west coast, this is the job for you.

All Around fair job
Route Sales Representative (Current Employee) –  Carol Stream, ILJune 27, 2019
First off, the job is labor intensive. If you don't like to do work, then don't apply.
They are straight forward, you come in, you do the job, you go home.
Your office is a rolling truck. You don't have your boss breathing down your neck all the time, but you are tracked.
Do all the work and you will do great.
Position requires LONG hours 10-14 per day starting out.
Chinese overtime - you will get paid less for going over 40 hours.
You belong to the union.
Seniority determination is unfair.
You get a pension after 5 years and benefits until then. 401K and profit sharing also provided.
Warehouse is cuckoo, i swear they have monkeys running the place.
Pros
Pension, benefits, free chips
Cons
Warehouse is a joke, management says they care but do they?

Productive but often labor intense environment.
Sanitation (Current Employee) –  Bakersfield, CAJune 27, 2019
Pay is great. In the sanitation department, the hours are long and sometimes are not set because said department works only when machinery is down. Sanitation process can happen at any hours of the day and night on weekends. Sanitation is a good job for someone looking for a part-time job on weekends.

Pros
working on your own

Great Career
Long Haul Driver (Former Employee) –  Dallas, TXJune 24, 2019
Great place to have a career as a driver. The schedule was the only aspect I couldn’t work around so I resigned. It is the best job I’ve had and would work there again if schedule structure was changed up slightly.

Dont do it
Unload/rotator (Former Employee) –  Evansville, INJune 24, 2019
Pay was good with all the overtime. No free time, no family time. Company doesnt really care about you or your well being. You will be a robot there. Was fired when I wouldnt come back 3 days early from a vacation that was planned for 6 months and approved by management
Pros
Pay
Cons
No other time besides work

All around it can be better but its not a bad job starting out
Bulk Loader (Current Employee) –  Perry, GAJune 23, 2019
The advancement to move up is slim to none until you put in 10 plus years. The amount of work you do doesnt compensate for the pay you receive and it takes away from your family time
Pros
Paid weekly
Cons
Takes away from home life no matter what schedule you have, being forced to use a full week of vacation should be optional, work load wears down your body, pay can be more
