It's an exciting company to work for . The amount by money you make is totally dependent on the individual.
Everyday is different and the clients at times can be challenging , overcoming these obstacles and at the same time making that sale that what makes it great.
Pros
No limits on sale and all necessary tools and help needed to the job is provided.
Cons
Long work days. Family life may suffer

I think the ep system discourages alot of people. Will write you up even when youre still in youre 90 day training.
Material Handler (Former Employee) –  Lynchburg, VAJanuary 20, 2019
Don't think it's fair when they use a flawed employee tracking system. It destroys me everytime when I work.. Dont want to stick around. Maybe they should do away with the system and try a different approach with their employees.

Delivery Driver (Former Employee) –  Wilson, NCJanuary 19, 2019
A typical day starts with loading your truck for deliveries to each stop. I've learned how to take and control inventory on a week to week basis. Management was average. Workplace culture was somewhat good after establishing good work environment among other drivers. The hardest part of the job was dealing with different characters of customers that you have to work with. The most enjoyable was working at your own pace and working alone

Poor Management, Ridid Structure
Route Sales Lead (Current Employee) –  Cape Cod, MAJanuary 19, 2019
You'll work very hard at Frito-Lay. There are no opportunities for advancement. At the end of 2018, all of us suffered a 20% pay cut. Morale at the company is at an all time low, and seven of the 18 people who worked there have left.

That's why they're hiring.

If you REALLY need a job, and you have a driver's license, and can breathe, you're going to get hired. They'll take anybody at this point.

Good luck. You'll need it.
Pros
You're done by 3:00 PM. You start work at 4:00 AM, so ...
Cons
Low pay, hard work, terrible management, no advancement, random schedule, early start time

Long hours
Route Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Watsonville, CAJanuary 17, 2019
This company has gradually gone down hill from when I started in 2003. Longer routes, longer hours and less pay. The high turnover is due because of the latter.

lots of hours/good pay but poor management
Production Worker (Former Employee) –  Fayetteville, TNJanuary 17, 2019
typical day consists of packing or sorting cardboard. the pay is quite high but the mandatory overtime and six through seven days of work wear down most employees quite quickly. On top of that mandatory 12 hour shifts are a common occurrence. They do not accept doctors notes and use a "no-fault" policy so if you get sick you have to take points off attendance or go into work sick. The other employees are nice for the most part. Management is nice but half the time they don't know what going on. Management constantly tries to run more product than we have machines or workers for which makes them shut down fryers due to overloading the chip lanes.
Pros
good pay, alot of hours if uyou want them
Cons
bad management, bad sick policy, have to fight for benefits/leave

It is an ok place to work
Warehouser (Former Employee) –  Oklahoma City, OKJanuary 17, 2019
Not much room for advancement, and when there is they choose the person before they post the job...(about 80% of the time). Work /life balance is a really hard thing for the management to deal with. They do have great benefits for their employees though.
Pros
Great benefits
Cons
Bad work/life balance

The culture of the workplace is the way it is due to leadership. No accountability, high demand for efficiency. Changes are inevitable, its how your managers transition the changes.

Place is a joke
Material Handler/Forklift Operator (Former Employee) –  Lynchburg, VAJanuary 16, 2019
People in Lynchburg are talking about this place and people are actually turning frito lay down. They don’t care about you, your family, or your health. It’s all about getting cases out the door. Many things I’ve seen are so unprofessional and immoral!! They are writing new guys up within there first 60 days for not being good enough but yet they can’t even train them properly to do the job. Something will have to change or this place will be ran right into the dirt. Stay far away.
Pros
Pay
Cons
Everything else sucks

Technical Intern (Former Employee) –  Jonesboro, AR 72401January 16, 2019
A lot is asked out of the front line employees. For management its a great job with good pay. The quality manager there is very serious about food safety which made me proud to work there and produce safe snacks.

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.
