Typical plant atmospere. A group of people trying to achieve a common goal, making quality potato chips
Maintenance mechanic/ Electrician (Current Employee), Taber AlbertaApril 18, 2012
Pros: learning new things each day
Cons: midnight shift (sometimes)
Come in each day find out what is happening from previous shift, react to whatever is happening at that moment and do small projects like running pm's while waiting for a call. I have learn alot of tasks outside of my trade like welding, fabricating and other duties that would parallel the millwright trade. I have been exposed to lots of automation – more... in the plant which is challenging at times but exciting to learn. Most enjoyable part about my job is overcoming a challenge when faced with one. Dealing with co-workers is what you make of it, having patience with people is something that is a part of being plant maintenance. – less

long hours for ok pay, people who aren't your boss try to control you.
Route Sales Rep (Current Employee), Saskatoon, SKMarch 29, 2012
Pros: ok pay, good benefits, free chips
Cons: long hours, high stress, poor management
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.

This job was a job that was an excellent income provider.
Logistics/Lead Route Sales Representative (Former Employee), Madison, ALJuly 28, 2014
Pros: the income was a very motivation part of the job.
Cons: satisfying everyone.
A typical started at 2 am and 10 to 12 hours later for 90% of the time was the time to go home. Another line of work, working with snack foods was one thing but learning how to work with so different types of attitudes was very valuable. The hardest part of the job was taking pride and putting it in your pocket and actually developing a working relationship – more... so that you can make a mark in the profession. – less

Not so great
Route Sales Representative (Former Employee), Summit, ILJuly 23, 2014
Not a place to work if your a human being and have a family. Way too much work for 1 person, and it is overwhelming every day. The more hours you work, the less you make.

Sales Representative & Route Methods Expert (Current Employee), Madison, ALJuly 18, 2014
Pros: free snacks
Cons: no longer commission, pay incentive!
I'm seeking employment that will utilize my education and previous work experience to better myself. My job has taught me the in's and out's of being a salesman and what it takes to push and drive the percentage up in a competitive environment. The best part about the job is the diverse culture of people that I run into on a daily basis. Each stop is – more... always different. – less

Workplace that offers advancements.
Production Worker (Current Employee), Decatur, GAJuly 17, 2014
A typical workday consist of using the module to pick orders for delivery. In addition to my job I learned how to complete the paperwork for the orders and restart the system if it shut down. Management was usually off by the time my shift started or just about to leave. I got along with all my co-workers they are what make the day go by. The hardest – more... part of the job is the temperature in the warehouse, when its cold its cold and when its hot its hot. The most enjoyable part of the job is the family day events that we have with the company. – less

depends on the location
Material Handler (Former Employee), Richmond, VAJuly 16, 2014
Pros: pay
Cons: no advancement opportunity
pays more than most warehousing jobs, but there is lack of advancement opportunity in the warehouse. No set time of when you will get off, no set days of when you will have off. WILL work Sundays. Must be able to work in extreme heat in the summer and extreme cold in the winter. Some sites require steel toes which will get heavy because there is no – more... sitting. There will be constant moving, and lifting. – less

Accounting Project Specialist (Former Employee), Plano, TexasJuly 16, 2014
Pros: free samples of new products, numerous company offsite functions including 1 family included function, company time community projects
Cons: job not challenging
My job involved finance reconciliation. Very tedious, structured and unexciting!

The most enjoyable part of my job was the ability to working with Frito Lay in the community. Frito Lay encouraged their employees to be very involved in the community. The Diversity and Inclusion groups within the company help to foster a very welcoming work environment.
Frito – more... Lay also offers a flexible work life balance program that helps meet any employees needs. This worked well for me because I was a single parent. – less

Decent Pay, Low Hours
Material Handler (Current Employee), Kathleen, GAJuly 12, 2014
Overall after 2 years of employment at Frito Lay and no advancement; I'm looking for another job. The hours of a part-time employee are ridiculous. According to Frito Lay, part-time employees work 29 hours per week, but rarely see 20 and the average is around 16-18. The biggest problem is shift crewing, loaders work in teams of 2. If someone calls off, – more... fails to show, the other gets sent home. – less
