Beverage Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 26 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.
Good people and a good team, great work experience as they have decent training programs
Disability (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 16 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) – Alberta – 12 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.
Salary, Stats Off, good benefits
Long hours (unpredictable), very little support, not enough praise, driving
Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 24 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.
fair pay, market leader, benefits, security
you are a splinter of a big wooden ship sailing the seas of commerce, And the ship never docks at port.
Human Resources (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 24 September 2018
PepsiCo is a great organization to grow your career coming out of school. It provides cross functional and cross divisional experiences to enhance your skills. The culture of the organization makes it a fun place to work and make long lasting relationships.
Demoted to shift superviser (Current Employee) – Lethbridge, AB – 5 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.
