Part Time Merchandiser (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 26 January 2017
Lays is a great employer in my job as a part time merchandiser as they go through a thorough training process and make sure that you are entirely comfortable with the job and what it consists of before sending you out to the workplace. Once in the workplace they also keep a solid communication line open ensuring that everyone is informed with what lies ahead before you even enter the store
Packaging Technician (Former Employee) – Lethbridge, AB – 24 October 2016
Is a company that there safety culture is only that of what meets the government standards, does not believe in going the extra mile to make sure employees go home the way they came. If an employee does end up being hurt, they don't have any issues disposing of them, as they treat there people like they are only a number. Like there bags disposable. I would not advise anybody to pursue a career with them even though there pay is comparable. They do not give references, so if your trying to gain experience you can't use anytime spent there. Beyond people's beliefs it's profit over quality.

Packer (Former Employee) – Cambridge, ON – 8 February 2017
Long hours but great co- workers, I only worked there for as a student so I don't know much about what it's like to work there, however it paid for my school and I got to meet a bunch of other students in my position
Overall great workplace, incredibly inconsistent hours
Packaging floor worker (Current Employee) – New Minas, NS – 22 June 2016
My work experience was very well balanced overall and no real problems are present here, other than the inconsistency in shifts. If you're looking for a full time employment opportunity, prepare either to keep searching or to be locked into an inconsistent job for many years waiting for a full time position to open up.
Discounted chips, overall great work environment, good co workers
Very inconsistent in receiving shifts, shifts sometimes very short
Route sales representive (Former Employee) – Lethbridge, AB – 12 September 2016
In sales this company is very ruthless..this company does not care about the sales employees just the bottom line. I've worked at frito lay for 4 years and all they did was criticize never gave credit very much
Frito Lay Canada was a great company to work for. The maintenance team was excellent as were all of the production people. As a foreigner in Canada they were very receptive of me and the pay and benefits were excellent. It was a fabulous place to work.
Packer (Former Employee) – Cambridge, ON – 13 July 2016
grueling work, kinda boring. Factory was hot and HVAC wasn't on very often at all. I learned to stick with something unpleasant or uncomfortable for a long time. Hardest part: working in the heat Best part: could purchase chips for cheap
Warehouse Worker (Former Employee) – Taber, AB – 11 May 2016
A typical day at work involved a lot of problem solving regardless of which department I was in. I learned that communication, self motivation, and that adversity is part of nearly every situation. Management at Frito was relatively well set up, that being said, where employees communicated regularly it seemed as if supervisors weren't always on the same page. Co-workers at Frito were all very friendly, helpful, and everybody worked hard. The hardest part about working for Frito was a combination of long hours, to having to constantly having to solve either our own teams' mistakes or night shifts' leftover mistakes. The most enjoyable part of working with Frito was guaranteed days off every week, a livable wage, and a pleasant work space.
Good wages, productive work space
The cons of working at frito were so superficial and miniscule they aren't really worth mentioning.
Great pay for what you did. but nothing else was a positive
RSR Mega Swing (Former Employee) – Brockville, ON – 2 October 2016
your work week was friday to tuesday every week. there was little room for advancement. even if you took a weeks holidays since the week ran sunday to saturday. you had to book two weeks straight to receive a weekend off. more often than not coworkers were never willing to take the busiest days but expected you to work whenever they wanted a day covered. the hardest part of the job was trying to grow the business while following strict rules about what we could and could not do. it was very difficult to find new sales opportunities, and when you did they were denied because they didn't feel it was incremental enough. The other hard part was trying to juggle a family while being low man on the totem pole more often than not co-workers wouldn't cover your days you needed off. but expected you to cover theirs.there was no benefit to covering another employee.
the most enjoyable part of the job was looking at your end of week numbers and beating everyone else despite the fact the oddds were against you almost every single time
Great Salary, friendy people excellent benefit package
long hours, often no acknowlegement, taken advantage of, creativity is discouraged, shady pay practices
Product Merchandiser - Temporary (Former Employee) – Lloydminster, AB – 13 February 2016
This position was a temporary contract. I went into four seperate locations, merchandised the shelves placing product out, I had to follow expiry dates, reduce on waste and manage my time to finish all locations in 16 hours.
The management team was professional, knowledgeable, and easy to contact in cases of emergencies or inquires. The position was a independent position and I had no coworkers. T
he hardest part of the job was getting to a speed of efficiency to merchandise all four locations in my contract within the hourly budget, but the feeling of pride at the end of the day when you can look down the aisles and see what you've accomplished is phenomenal, the fast pace and constant demand to better myself was enticing and the reward of completion made everything satisfactory.
Vendor Customer Service Clerk (Former Employee) – Cambridge, ON – 2 January 2016

Nice place to work, free coffee, free product to sample
Summer Student Packer (Former Employee) – Cambridge, ON – 1 November 2015
Great, respectful people are generally hired by Frito Lay, making it a safe and friendly place to work. Active student packers are often offered opportunities to become trained in other tasks around the plant. The guidelines for self and product safety are well implemented throughout the factory floor. Though sometimes poorly managed due to the large amount of decision makers in the plant at any one time, Frito Lay is usually well organized through advanced planning and scheduling.
