Warehouse Worker (Former Employee), Dayton, OHOctober 2, 2014
Pros: great pay
Cons: extreme hours
Frito Lay offered excellent pay but odd hours. The work/life balance is a tricky part to master but once that is figured out it is a good source of income.

Region Productivity Manager (Current Employee), Oklahoma City, OKSeptember 20, 2014
Pros: good benefits and total compensation, rewarding
Cons: time-consuming, no work/life balance
Expectations are really high for management and the work load is heavy. It can be rewarding at times, but also tiring. I love the people I work with and people often try to help each other out as much as possible. I have enjoyed being able to work at such a productive and profitable company, but I do not always agree that upper management is taking – more... the company in the right direction for long-term sustainability. – less

Fun Productive Enviroment but makes you different person!
Full Time Merchandiser (Current Employee), Houston, TXSeptember 18, 2014
Pros: salary+++, stable workforce, fun enviroment, friendly peers and very low supervision
Cons: worklife balance, griping store mgnmt, lazy coworkers and "people stepping on your feet" (advancement delays)
A typical 8 hour day as a merchandiser would be starting weekdays usually early around 4 or 5 am. weekends might leave one of the 2 merchs on your route doing afternoons pulls starting between 10 am and 1 pm. job isn't hard at all but you just have to be very assertive with your approach to working especially when communicating with customers (stores). – more... They give you an iPhone 4 currently as a company phone with otter box case to clock in with and do other work related tasks and also supply you with good knee pads and maxi-flex gloves for free. You also get reimbursed mileage 56 cent per mile month or by period because you will be driving your own insured vehicle. Tasks mainly include Putting chips on isles, end caps, weekender displays, cross-dock pallets etc and will be assembling some of them as well as relocating and breaking down.

Some Coworkers will put work off on you, Especially salesmen because they get lazy and don't want to work back sock before load and want to go home early. Not all but alot do.Receivers and management seem to always gripe at you and call your boss. Most back stock areas are not well allocated vendor area wise and usually crowded especially when beer and soda loads are delivered.depending on your route, time of day and or week, store volume you can have a lot to do or nothing at all. Friendships are usually strong and fun among Co Workers, vendors and store employees, even consumers and everyday can be different.

You can move up really fast and make very good salary while frito lay is above the market beginning at merchandisers but at the same time it seems with some District Sales Leads (DSL) if you are more useful as the perfect merchandiser to them than you would be as a salesman driver because of the quality of work and entry level turnout rate as well with any job makes they're day easier. Theres alot of favoritism among-st management and everything stems from a referral method as who you know supersedes what you know at times.

Frito Lay is a great company with great job security, beautiful senses of humor, great 401k matching and they take care of employee for the most mostly because they are a dominate company to where competition is minimal and can afford to dispense alot of the amenities they have.I would tell anyone to apply there with the intent to make money or build a solid career with a stable chance but dont let DSLs blind you double standards and smokey clouds of contradictions and lies.

Certain types of people flourish and the others perish with this entire field, just to be clear so that frito isn't completely under fire. As this company operates exactly as you would think a former union job would.

Hope this helps that one who looked or and accurate idea just like i did a year ago. Sorry for typos..I was typing fast. – less
