Route Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 3 November 2017
Outstanding company to work for. The co workers helped each other out immensely and contributed to a great working environment. The management group worked hard at insuring all salespeople were trained to do their job most effectively.
Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Cambridge, ON – 24 October 2017
Started as a summer student when I was in university and eventually secured a full time position as a sales rep. Good money and benefits. Was required to work weekends for years until positions opened up for midweek work.
Warehouse Person/Merchandiser (Current Employee) – Grande Prairie, AB – 3 September 2017
The job itself starts off ok even great but once you get the hang of it it becomes tedious and brainless. There are no raises so you can be the all star employee and still be paid as much as your poor co worker who does less work and shows up only half the time. Management is hindered by more management and that management by more management still. So they do try to fix problems and help you out but in the long run nothing ever comes of complaints and problems. You are required to have your own vehicle but they only pay you .39 a km. This does not cover your gas or any kind of vehicle maintenance.
MERCHANDISER (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 2 September 2017
The duty of a merchandiser was not to just stock shelves at grocery stores, but to create a display that was worth looking at when you pass by. The job is extremely hands on and requires a lot of stamina. Attention to detail was a strength within this job that allowed me to help train other employees to meet company standards. All in all the company was a great place to be and was very compensating.
Account Manager/Merchandiser (Former Employee) – Windsor, ON – 14 August 2017
In this workplace...there were ups and downs. When I first started with the company,there was a challenge right off the bat. The person who trained me was not the easiest person to get along with, so learning was quite the challenge.
Once I was trained the job was enjoyable, I would travel to 4 to 5 large store accounts per day. This would include Costco, Walmart and Food Basics. I would be responsible for stocking shelves, ordering product and selling in and building displays. Servicing these accounts was enjoyable in that I met and dealt with various people on a daily basis.
Overall in this position, I learned how to deal with the various peosonalities and also how to a degree sell product. The hardest part I found was putting in some long hours.
Route Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 11 August 2017
I worked at Frito-Lay Canada for about a year, I expected much more out of such a big company, They make you do so many extra things over & above your job description and time (commision based job). The most dissapointing part is how cheapily run the company is. About 90% of the company trucks don't even have air conditioning. Don't waste your time here, don't get suckered into advancement via seniority. From many people I have talked to Pepsi Co Beverages is a much better experience if you want to be a Sales Rep, way more perks and better management
