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.
Seasonal Warehouse Labourer (Current Employee) – Saskatoon, SK – 12 May 2018
Very busy work environment during the summer time. Excellent pay for Warehouse Work, weekly pay friendly work environment with co-workers. Hardest part of the job would be the constant bending/twisting you do on a day-to-day basis.
Free Supper every 2nd Thursday
Overtime is daily and extra cash always helps pay bills.
Stopped paying kms after a few months, little to no hours

Account Merchandiser (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 3 April 2018
As a part time job, this company is great. However, for full-time, there is very little recognition from management about your job performance. Management also does not generally follow their job descriptions and are usually in "meetings". In a merchandising role, it is expected that you align your work day hours with the delivery times of the orders you work. This could mean that you start your day at noon if your orders are on a late truck, and you do not find out until maybe the night before, but most often the morning of. As sales, it is expected that you work a 10 hour day minimum, even though your salary is based off an 8 hour day. You are given no sick days, and your holiday days are very "negotiable" in the way that if management has already cleared your holiday but decides they need you for one of the days, they will just take away that day.
Good pay for students/part time for what the work is.
Large Account Sales Manager (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 23 February 2018
It was a better company about 5 years ago. Things have gone downhill since. Poor Management and Management decisions. Overall good company to work for, great benefits and options to advance, if you so choose.

Resource Manager (Current Employee) – Cambridge, ON – 6 February 2018
The Resource Manager role at PepsiCo requires much more than advertised. The manufacturing environment is very fast-paced which can be a physical as well as mental challenge. Good pay benefits and flexible shifts. Work life balance is a major challenge especially if you end up on an off-shift.
Merchandiser (Former Employee) – Delta, BC – 25 January 2018
Worked over the summer as a merchandiser. I had an excellent manager who was very friendly and transparent. The training was great and they set you up to succeed in your role. The work was on-call which became tiresome when the phone rang for the 10th day in a row. My major complaint was the amount of work required as I was frequently working 10+ hour days 7+ days in a row.
Merchandiser/Sales (Current Employee) – Orillia, ON – 8 December 2017
Good money, but you will be treated like a dog. As long as the managers numbers look good to people above them, they don't give a hoot about anybody or anything else. I've had some bad management in my lifetime, but nothing compares to lack of management and compassion for employees PepsiCo has shown me over the past 5+ years.
long hours, work weekends, bad communication, no management skills, anything to save a dollar the company will do, part time staff gets more work than full time staff because they are cheaper alternatives
