Account Merchandiser (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 20 April 2017
Get a lot of independence moving to grocery stores around the city and surrounding area where you stock pop that is dropped off by the delivery trucks.
You build displays or work product to the shelf.
Limited management oversight as you work alone and if full time are given a work iphone with which to communicate with staff, management and use the Pepsi app that logs you in and out of accounts and tracks your movements.
Best part of working as Account Merchandiser is having no manager looking over your shoulder, and mostly being able to plan your day as you see fit.
Worst part is how physically draining it is, uninteresting, the types of people who have to deal with (grocery store managers, staff, consumers), and how there is limited ability to move up the ranks into Sales or elsewhere unless you have heavy educational prerequisites
Independence, work iphone if full time, union once past 1500 hours.
Brutally physical work, deal with nasty personalities day to day, uninteresting work, limited ways to move up in company.

Warehouse Worker (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 3 March 2017
I worked hard and i was appreciated for it. TJ was a great boss. I had a great time with the other seasonals. We would all hang out in the lunch room before shift started. Once the shift started we had a healthy competition for fastest picker. Some full timers need to work harder. They don't realize people are doing the same work for way less money at other places. Others are great people and workers.
Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Kingston, ON – 27 February 2017
A typical day required visiting your list of customers that was populated for you on your iPad for the day, usually about 12 accounts to visit. Take inventory, place orders, upsell racking and displays. Management micromanaged, workplace culture was a team environment. The hardest part of the day was trying to complete all tasks and the most enjoyable part pleasing customers.
Good to employee's, lots of independance, difficult hours
Route Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 7 February 2017
Pepsico is a great company to work for management is great and so is the pay. Training was very helpful and well organized. Management listens to employee's and does a good job looking after their interests. The hours are difficult to adjust to however as they involve very early starts and are often very lengthy especially for new employees.
