Warehouse Material handler (Current Employee) – Brisbane, CA – 5 December 2011
Working with Frito Lay is good. Their number one priority is the welfare and safety of the employees which is very important. This company gives trainings to educate their employees to achieve their goals.
good benefits, quarterly bonus, uniform allowance.
less hours to part time employees, no benefits, no team work.
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
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.
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
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
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.
Merchandiser/ Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Ancaster, ON – 6 January 2017

Senior Sales Representative (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 21 March 2017
show up , load up, drive out , fill up , drive to , sell to, . Rinse and repeat. Always more work tossed on us, with zero constipation for the work load given. I find its all about the bottom dollar and the investors. Bottom guys working hard to make the rich richer.
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
Warehouse Worker (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 28 November 2016
Gathered smaller orders of chips and other Frito Lay products for various stores and organized them by regions. Organized these orders by the truck number and often loaded them on the trucks. Picked bulk orders for stores and other products. Trained employees on how various jobs were preformed.
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
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
Great place to work for. In sales the flucuation of pay and route engenieering is stressfull at time.
Retail Sales Representative, Route Training Expert (Current Employee) – Cambridge, ON – 10 February 2015
You can expect to work a 8-10 hour day. Not a stressfull job but very demanding on key weekends. Co workers are great and management work hard at getting the most success out of their employees. Hardest part of the job is working weekends.
long hours for ok pay, people who aren't your boss try to control you.
Route Sales Rep (Current Employee) – Saskatoon, SK – 29 March 2012
The company only cares about money, they pretend that employees are important but have shown time and time again that money is all that matters, poor managers who only care about sales and not about your concerns.
