Bottle-line Mechanic (Current Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 17 October 2017
I am currently working the night shift which is having a very negative effect on my personal life. When hired I was told I would be working weekends or afternoons. After 4 months I still have not worked those preferred shifts.
Co-workers are good to work with
Management does not seem to care much about employees needs
Packaging Technician (Former Employee) – Lethbridge, AB – 7 July 2016
Pay was alright for the position and the work, but the job was tedious and rarely satisfying. Management strongly focuses on results; ergonomics, safety, and positive workplace culture slipped significantly during my tenure, with minor achievements along the way. Retiring employees were given little or no fanfare. Numerous lifetime employees were forced out of the company or given little consideration during a so-called 'Kaizen' meant to reduce operating costs. Employee recognition heavily favors specific positions in the plant. Management occasionally catered meals and bbq lunches if employees met specific production, cost, and safety goals. If you're okay picking up a mercenary paycheck, you could do much much worse for less.
Decent pay, ok benefits
Long hours, frequent unscheduled overtime, poor management
Warehouse Worker (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 26 April 2016
pay is great and the guys on the floor are amazing. But the management and most supervisors are clueless. They have children running the warehouse floor who don't know nothing about warehousing. They talk down to employees and treat them with no respect. They fired me the day I was suppose to get hired, I had 5 hours left on my probation. Real classy bunch of people. They work you like no tmrw. Its a unionized place but the union here is useless also no one care about the employees. Prob one of the worst places I have ever worked.
Don't go to the Vancouver Annacis Island location!!!!
Operator/supervisor/manager (Current Employee) – Vancouver, BC (Annacis island) – 20 April 2016
The epitome of a dysfunctional group. There is absolutely no sense of team; as a matter of fact, they purposefully create a culture of silos and disregard for the human element. One nameless cretin serves in a management (very difficult to state this) capacity in the warehouse, with an unparalleled desire to create conflict amongst the group. Given that he has no issue with serving countless hours on site, he remains employed. Bigotry, inept business acumen steer this facility in a pointless direction. Very unfortunate as I'm certain this is not the core values of the PepsiCo organization. Take note and right the low hanging wrongs.
Market rate salaries
no work life balance. no intentions of fixing the imminent issues
Forklift Operator (Current Employee) – Delta, BC – 11 April 2016
Rude, un-coordinated supervisors Very dangerous Very physical Unfair managers long hours has a contract system that makes absolutely no sense and short changes their workers. managers don't always pay full amount on pay checks. They cut corners to save the company money. Worst company i've ever worked for.
That is a great job experience when you work at SDI marketing, I enjoyed the work environment and gained a lot of experience and knowledge towards the different company and their new products I promoted.
Route Sales Representative (Current Employee) – Surrey, BC – 23 March 2016
The days as a route sales rep with Pepsico Foods can be very long. If you are not motivated and organized it could seem endless. The training provided is good and ongoing. Overall a good company to work for
Delivery Helper (Former Employee) – London, ON – 16 March 2016
Typical day going around a part of Ontario making 12 plus drops, sometimes we would stop at some of the bigger stores like Shoppers and we were able to just drop it in the back sometimes because they would just do it for us or they were stocked up. Or we would have to stay and think of the best way to stock over 500 cases of pop with all the kinds of pop in the right area's within an hour so we could get to the next drop on time. The thing I most enjoyed from working at Pepsi was defiantly learning a bunch of different ways to do the job "the best way" from all the different drivers I got to work with, that was all so a bonus just because they all viewed the job differently and it was neat getting different views an different ways of thinking and just all around getting to know each driver.
Free pop, great people, eat whenever I was in the truck and had time, very laid back drivers if you keep up with them.
Seasonal, could go all the way to Sarina with 15 plus drops, sometimes work up too 14 hour days
