Avis d'employé sur PepsiCo
On call 6 days a week with no option for advancement
You are expected to drive 40' tractor trailer into places that they do not belong. The company will sacrifice safety for delivery. I have had 8 managers/supervisors/interns in the last 4 years, none of which had any driving or delivery experience. The trucks break down daily, the trailers are trashed and full of black mold, and this is the second summer of no AC (they continue to look into it), and the equipment is always broken, or falling apart. The "Drivers Board" is based on seniority, based on hire date, and based on work available, so many times your left waiting for a 4:30 am phone call each day that doesn't come. You have an option to Merchandise (fill store shelves) for far less pay and tends to be more work, all while driving your own vehicle to each store. Many times you only get two driving shifts a week and on those two days senior drivers are in on OT or Double OT. If a route opens up and nobody takes it you are forced based on seniority to take it, often times being thrown on a 7pm-3am night shift 5 days a week, usually with 2 days notice. As a new driver, with the least seniority this is the route you will start on. 3 days off in a row are rare, even after working 4x10's they will call you with one day off and expect you to come in. This is not a company you want to try and start out in, their is no advancement, you lose any and all seniority if you leave the drivers board to work in the warehouse or anywhere else in the country in the same position. There is no schedule, no routine, and must be available 6 days a week.

On call 6 days a week, long days, no schedule. Horrible driving and working conditions, poor truck, trailer and equipment condition.
If you want to be a number, work hereIf you want to be told by someone how to do your job who's never in their life attempted to do your job, then is place is for youIf you want to work in a unionized environment where the union bows down to management and has absolutely no backbone, then this is your dream jobIf you want to work 14 hours a day, have your days off moved around to benefit them, this is a great place for that If you want a good job that cares about you, then go somewhere else.Toxic
This is a great place to work. The work load isn’t by any means unrealistic. The culture at Frito-Lay is second to none. I left because of restructuring of the warehouse. I would definitely work for the PepsiCo group again if an opportunity come up. It’s a great company.
Would like more hours/shifts
I have worked for Pepsi for a year now. And the hours were very inconsistent. The mangers could care less about you. Sometimes the stores would complain to the mangers and the sales rep they would put you under the bus. And they always end up putting the blame on you even if it wasn’t your fault. They have higher expectations but can’t give you enough hours and there is no chance to move up with this company. And you easily could be let go. Don’t waste your time better to find something else.
Management and less hours
