Labourer/Blade Changer (Former Employee) – New Minas, NS – 10 April 2017
Really enjoyed the people I worked with there, was very hot in the summer & very hard labor work on the packing line. The management would provide staff with gatorade when it was super hot, and made sure we got out of the heat every so often. Chips in the break room were so great!
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
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.
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

Data Entry Customer orders, credit/debit customer orders for shortages or extra products, filing, answering customer questions and sales rep questions via phone or email. Send a report at the end of the day to the Vend Team with all orders input for that day. Also, go into SAP and make sure that all orders are complete for shipping.
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.
HR ASSISTANT ADMINISTOR DUTIES (Former Employee) – Lethbridge, Alberta – 28 April 2015
The staff I worked with was great however the management was in constant flux. The vision and goals of those individuals therefore were different which made it seem hard/impossible to hit that ever moving target. The job itself was interesting and challenging which I thoroughly enjoyed. Lots to learn as we had to adapt to changes and expectations.
Constant Multiple Changes in Management and Programs
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.
Packaging technician & Trim Inspection (Former Employee) – Cambridge, ON – 10 September 2014
Frito-Lay had an effective and resourceful student summer workplace experience. Frito-Lay provides further security and stability for fulltime employees. Frito-Lay provided a positive team environment where employees would work together and help others with tasks and to be productive. I gained many new skills including leadership skills in my experience at Frito-Lay/Pepsico, Canada.
