Pros: learned a lot about high-end maintenance

Pros: flexible scheduling
Cons: healthcare
A typical work day consist of anywhere from 5-12 hours depending on the time of year. My coworkers are very pleasant people to be around. This is a major plus in such a strenuous job.The hardest part of the job is not knowing when your shift will end. Like i stated previously your start/finish time is based on the workload.

I learned how to manage people and always focus on the company policy and rules to achieve my target and gain the best communication and relations t that job.

I really enjoyed working with all my coworkers & management team as they were all funny and working to have a better atmosphere and relations.

The hardest part of the job that we had a lo of – more... conflict in the middle east now a days and that makes it abnormal.

The most enjoyable part is when you achieve your target and be the best. – less

Case Technician (Former Employee), Charlotte, NCSeptember 4, 2014
Pros: discount on frito lay products
Cons: not enough hours for work
Your day starts off in a 10 minute meeting. Afterwards your given a line to start production on. Every hour you move to the next production line. which is a hassle if your co worker ahead of you cant keep up with the line. You learn to be patient and to pace your self as work is coming down the line . Hardest part of the job, is ensuring the quality – more... is good for the shipment. Reading labels and checking for bad bags while u pack is pretty challenging. The best part of the job is your co workers who keep things going, and your allowed to taste your product on your line. – less

Packer (Former Employee), Kirkwood, NYAugust 31, 2014
Pros: good pay
Cons: countless 12 hour days and even working on days off
As a packer you are at the whim of the crewer, if they decide they need people to fill in gaps then a person from the previous shift stays for 4 hours at time and a half and a person from the next shift comes in early for 4 hours at time and a half. While the pay is nice this could happen every single day of your work week for a month. If you're full-time – more... they can force in to come in on your days off as long as they give you one day of every 14 days. That's all. And it does happen more frequently than you'd expect. Poorly managed and just aggravating – less

Transport Driver (Current Employee), Dayville, CTAugust 30, 2014
Pros: amount of vacation and holiday time
Cons: benefits
A typical workday had variable start times with variable destinations. I learned how to be patient on the road and in so doing remain safe for the most part. Management is a tad arrogant. Love my coworkers and have developed many great relationships. Hardest part of the job is watching the company cut benefits. Most enjoyable part of the job is pay – more... day. – less

Route Sales Representative (Former Employee), Machesney Park, ILAugust 28, 2014
Pros: all of the wonderful people i was able to meet in the workplace
Cons: i had no life and full of stress
My day started everyday at about 3am. I started by loading my truck with the product I would need to service my customers correctly. I would then drive to my first account. I had about 12 accounts a day to service. My day would end everyday at about 7pm.

I had some of the best co-workers anyone could ask for. They were all full of great knowledge. – more... They would be willing to help, support, and answer any questions I would have to help me be successful.

The hardest part of my job with Frito-Lay was the hours I piled up. I was working about 65-70 hours a week. I had no life outside of work.

The most enjoyable part of my job was the paid vacations. By the time they came around I was so burned out that it was nice to have a week off. – less

Route Sales Representative (Former Employee), Brooklyn, NYAugust 28, 2014
Running your route early in the morning and being able to work freely with out any traffic stress was great. Also being in charge of every aspect of the business from ordering, packing out product, being in constant contact with store managers, and building out displays. My co-workers were always ready to help out and I myself always willing to give – more... a hand.
The best part of this job, of course after getting paid, was the fact that i felt like i was my own boss for the most part. – less

Lead Warehouse/ Product supply Lead/ Supervisor (Former Employee), Beltsville, MDAugust 25, 2014
a typical day started off by making sure the correct trailers were being unloaded and removing obstacles at the beginning of the shift, so employees can come in and get right to work. I learned how to utilize multiple systems such as SAP, ICS, and IPM. I looked forward to working with my team members on a daily basis. There were not any hard parts of – more... my job, however whenever I was faced with an opportunity I always accepted and made my deadlines on time. – less

Warehouse Worker (Former Employee), Londonderry, NHAugust 24, 2014
Pros: decent pay and benefits
Cons: long days, slacking co-workers, bad mangement
A day at work meant picking whatever orders you had for the day whether light or heavy it needed to be finished in a timely manner. The management at my DC is probably typical for most, some good some bad it all depends on who has the bigger impact of your shift. As far as co-workers its the same some good some bad, if your co-workers didn't get the – more... job done you had to pick up the slack. Their wasn't an enjoyable part of the job it was all a matter of who you worked with. If you worked with a hardworking crew the day was awesome if you worked with slackers the day was long and tiring. – less
