Sales Representative (Current Employee) –  London, ON8 March 2018
The management is fantastic and great at working around days that you need off. Management is there to support you, but do not breath down your neck constantly. There really is quite a bit of freedom with this job. Great company to work for!

Overall decent student summer job
Student Summer Packer (Former Employee) –  Cambridge, ON10 February 2018
Student packer. Easy job packing chips into boxes. Repeated action for 8 hour shifts can get boring. Keeping up with the conveyor belt can be difficult at times. Fair pay. Asked for over time a lot near end of summer but at beginning of summer there wasn't enough work for everyone.

Good money, but even if you work hard, you don't advance very quickly.
Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Ottawa West, ON21 January 2018
Nothing wrong with the job, it just sucks that they are not unionized and go by seniority. There were A LOT of very hard working and high performing people while I was there but unfortunately because everything went on seniority, someone with more time in would get the better routes vs someone who easily out performs them.

Great place to gain a lot of experience
Weekend team-leader (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC16 January 2018
Had to work long hours for the company, and they did not care whether you had school or not, as long as the job got done.
Worked very many hours during school to ensure quality job.
Management is good, but do not understand anything other than work.

Though, I have learned a lot in this company, and it changed me professionally and is a very good place to put on your CV

Worked Hard - Learned A Lot
VARIOUS ROLES (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB10 October 2017
Frito tends to work the daylights out of you, but you learn a lot. They do not believe in work life balance. They grind you up, but it was a great place to start my career.
