Pros
Free pop and chips sometimes

Overall good workplace
Beverage Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB26 January 2019
For the most part, working at PepsiCo is an enjoyable experience. However, hours can be long and gruelling as the job and management expect an extremely high level of performance from their staff. Some managers are unorganized and forgetful. Driving all the time can be hard, especially in the winter months. If you want to work for PepsiCo expect your vehicle to mile out very quickly without really good compensation. Also, expect to be tracked with everything you do, including GPS tracking.
Pros
Good people and a good team, great work experience as they have decent training programs
Cons
Long hours, HEAVY workload

A job
Route Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Scarborough, ON4 December 2018
If you're looking for a short term job, this is for you.

But if you want a career and to grow and better yourself, this is not for you.

My first year with the company, I earned 42k. 10 years later I was earning 45k flat, NO MORE BONUS, NO MORE COMMISSION.

Do I really have to go on?

Glorified merchandising position.

Oh and be prepared the aches & pains, this is a very physical job, you will slug most days.
Pros
Benefits
Cons
Too many to list.

Disability (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON16 August 2018
Poor management in leadership roles. No work/life balance at all. Salary was not up to par when compared to similar jobs in the industry. Employees were not always recognized for their hard work and efforts.

Unpredictable hours, poor management, everyone is a number
Account Merchandiser (Former Employee) –  Alberta12 August 2018
Overall isn’t a bad job. Def not long term. The worst parts about this job is the unpredictable hours on a day to day basis. Not sure when your getting off work. It’s all paid salary which is a perk, but summer time and Christmas time are extremely busy and your alone majority of the time. Lots of driving around which can be nice for breaks in between but not so fun in the winter months. I had an issue with one of my managers not really supporting me in this roll. You also have to do all the ordering and felt like you were always working around the clock and always thinking what would I have to do the next day. Like I said overall not a bad job, but there is little advancement in this company and it’s very much a numbers game.
Pros
Salary, Stats Off, good benefits
Cons
Long hours (unpredictable), very little support, not enough praise, driving

Not your typical driving job, but can be fun at times.
CLASS 1 DRIVER (Current Employee) –  BC3 August 2018
Typical day starts at 5am, 10-14 hour days.

Job is approximately 20% driving, 80% moving cases and bottles.

Management is overall good, but will squeeze every last ounce out of you if you let them, to the point of exhaustion.

Workplace culture has been better.

The hardest part of the job is frequent schedule changes, long days, and common equipment failures, from trucks to power jacks. But the job does pay hourly.

The most enjoyable part of the job is the open road, and meeting the customers at the some of the delivery locations.
Pros
For a driving job, the hourly compensation is hard to beat.
Cons
No work/family life balance.

It depends..
associate (Former Employee) –  Cambridge, ON19 July 2018
If you don't mind a constantly stressful job with little work-life balance, you'll get rewarded by being promoted every 2 years and paid a good salary.

Team Member (Current Employee) –  Mississauga, ON18 December 2018
Work life balance is ok but there is no opportunities for growth. Job security is next to nothing and no peace of mind. Some of the recent management decisions are questionable.

you are a gear in a well-run machine
Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB24 May 2018
This is a big global company, and you know it. If you don't know it, you will find out very fast.

There is sometimes a lack of humanity with how they handle things, because it's so big that there's a policy somewhere to handle most cases. Every thing has a standard procedure or method.

If you like working your solid 40 hours for what is generally the highest payscale in this industry, don't ask too many questions, enjoy job security and never criticize management- this is a great place to be. People do stay for many years. If you are creative and enjoy unique/non-repetitive tasks coming up frequently in your work, you will suffer here.
Pros
fair pay, market leader, benefits, security
Cons
you are a splinter of a big wooden ship sailing the seas of commerce, And the ship never docks at port.

Tough place to work but decent compensation
Warehouse Technician (Current Employee) –  Scarborough, ON24 May 2018
Long term employees hold much clout and their transgressions are met with indifference but while the work is hard the compensation package is good.

Typical day at work is giving an assigned amount of cases of chips to pick and load onto trucks, enough work to last 8 hours.
Pros
Good Compensation
Cons
Long Hours

incentives revoked
Demoted to shift superviser (Current Employee) –  Lethbridge, AB5 December 2018
PepsiCo Just revoked incentives for employees who worked hard to get into management . Working their way from the bottom. Just to be told they want to focus on outside talent instead of developing within. Another words if you don't have a degree your advancement opportunities are next to nothing. All opportunities to advance wages..GONE get development training GONE....any type of movement GONE. Another words if you are happy being a grunt and don't want to advance you career at all....this is the place for you.Unless you have a engineering degree, then you will be catered to like a walking god.
Pros
Decent wage
Cons
No degree no advancement
