Pepsi Bottling Ventures work environment is extremely fast paced and consists of lifting 25-50 pounds constantly, which provides a great workout while also earning great pay.

Sales (Current Employee) –  Raleigh, NCDecember 13, 2018
There is a very low glass ceiling and leadership finds it more important to delegate their responsibilities to their team so they can play on their phones

ok job
Bulk Customer Representative (Former Employee) –  Winston-Salem, NCDecember 13, 2018
Start at 6 in the morning time you get off varies. Managment doesn't fully support employees. Workplace culture is a buddy buddy system. Hardest part of job is physical labor and dealing with disgruntle employees
Pros

heavy work loads

Pre-Sell Account Manager (Current Employee) –  Salisbury, MDDecember 5, 2018
If you value work-life balance, Pepsi Bottling Ventures is not your place of employment. Management doesn't listen to problems and each summer is a disaster. My manager would not answer his phone or check his emails all summer because the company lost its entire warehouse loading crew and he was stuck loading trucks every day. The company will try to pull you from any position you're in to fill someone else's shoes that isn't doing their job. Be expected to work 12-14 hours a day especially during the summer.
Pros
Benefits
Cons
Poor compensation, poor work-life balance, poor management

Not horrible
Full Service Driver (Former Employee) –  Conway, SCDecember 4, 2018
There is a lot of back breaking work involved. They put more and more work on you instead of adding new employees. The pay was decent and benefits are good.
Pros

Cons
Long hours during summer, physically demanding

Company was inconsistent
Bulk Customer Representative (Former Employee) –  Winston-Salem, NCNovember 29, 2018
Need better time management. The actual job wasn't hard but the route and time management was difficult. Management wasn't supportive. Management never listened to employees thoughts or concerns. PBV as a company did provide great benefits.
Pros
Salary plus commissions
Cons
Poor management

I beg you, please do not consider this place for employment
Machine Operator (Current Employee) –  Winston-Salem, NCNovember 2, 2018
PBV has a very toxic atmosphere, the managers are unprofessional and sometimes downright rude... I've witnessed multiple times managers using profanity towards employees, managers literally laughing at the fact of you having to miss time with your family. Your well-being is not considered when they force 60+ hours on you in the summertime every week. I have literally never worked anywhere like this place in my 10+ years in manufacturing. This place is literally a circus.
Pros
.25 cent sodas
Cons
Literally everything

Hard work and long hours
Driver (Former Employee) –  Statesville, NCOctober 24, 2018
Good place to start your CDL career if you don't have one. They will train you but be mindful that when you take your road test, you most likely will be using an automatic transmission truck. D.O.T. (Department of Transportation) have recently restricted drivers who take their road test using an automatic transmission, from driving a manual transmission. So if you plan on quitting after you receive your CDL, companies that use manual transmissions will not hire you. As far as the work is concerned, it's okay if you enjoy hard work and being mismanaged. Some managers are stuck in the mindset that the delivery process in today's business environment is the same as it was 20 to 30 years ago. They want you to get more done in less time. Co workers were great but there are some that couldn't get their job done and the ones that paid the price were the ones that could. Benefits were good but as far as them saying they have competitive pay, that is an illusion. PBV is always stressing beating Coke in sales while you are working long hard hours, but the one thing they don't do is pay better than Coke. If you are going to beat Coke in sales, why wouldn't you beat them in pay also?
Pros
Benefits, great co-workers, weekends off
Cons
Long hours, pay does not compensate for the hard work you will be doing. Mismanaged

Pre Sell Account Manager (Former Employee) –  Elizabeth City, NCOctober 15, 2018
Used to be a fun place to work. Management at the time had your back and made you feel like you made a difference. Hired all new management and it has gone down hill from there. All of the employees there now view it as just a job. Be prepared to feel alone as none of the management has your back. Most employees talk behind your back,worst than middle schoolers. Unless you are a loner,you will not enjoy getting up and going to work everyday. Decent pay and benefits,but other than that I do not recommend working there
Pros
Benefits, Pay
Cons
Management, co-workers

Poor work/life balance.
Forklift Operator (Current Employee) –  Garner, NCOctober 14, 2018
Should be illegal to force an employee to work 70 to 80 hours a week on a regular basis. There have been occasions when we've had to work 7 days straight and 90+ hour weeks.
Pros
Plenty of overtime if that's what you're looking for.
Cons
Excessive hours and a very poor work/life balance.

They'll work you for nothing
Pepsi Merchandiser (Former Employee) –  Deep Gap, NCSeptember 3, 2018
Always changing their minds on how things go, work more hours work less hours. Then they'll fire you for nothing. When I got hired I got paid 10.13 turned out they changed the pay range new guys made almost 10.30 I only made it up to 10.24 and after asking I got told not to complain or they'll find someone who won't argue with it.
Pros
401K and thats about it bothing more
Cons
Everything management especially the Deep Gap plant
