Frito Lay askes you to perform more and more but front line workers are the first to get cut
Fleet Mechanic (Current Employee) – NC – July 1, 2015
At first it was fun to work there i love the freedom but with the changes being made they cut my budget to see more savings but they keep cutting and cutting and expect the same out come from the year before and then they cut my hours and then tell me that I’m not going to be able to get a raise because I’m at the max for my location but they would give me a bonus. The bonus is based on a 40hr work week and I normally work 45-50hrs and then a bonus gets taxed at a greater rate so there is no money in it for me. Advancement is unlikely because they want younger collage kids that don’t know anything but yes sir or mam and don’t care about the people they are leading; I find it hard to follow someone who doesn’t look out for their people. The company is so engaged with shareholders they lose track of the people doing the work to keep the company progressing. I work on 70 assets in 8 locations and deal with over 80 personal on a different team to schedule a PM or a service is almost impossible when there managers are telling them that they do not have to follow through with the rules set forth or listen to anything I have to tell them. I feel that my managers are "yes" men as well when they will not let you purchase the fluids to do the job set forth I feel as if they are setting us up for failure. Drivers wreck assets with no real repercussions and I don’t get replacements and if I do it is an old run down asset that needs more money to repair than the asset is worth, hints the reason the other tech is giving it up. PepsiCo make billions of dollars a year but still has 1990 model assets on the road and they can’t even as much as get them washed one time a year. The freedom is the part I love but that means that you have to be flexible and it can interrupt your home life.
over tasked and and not much incentive anymore
