Strong growth company which offers great opportunity for work experience.

Route Sales Representative (Former Employee)
Bloomington, MN (US)

I worked at PepsiCo full-time for more than 5 years

ProsStrong Profit growth, in past present and as well as future outlook. Everyone knows and loves their products (Doritos, Cheetos, Tostitos, Fritos, Lays, etc…). There will always be steady work opportunities.

ConsLong hours running a route with very few opportunities for internal advancement and training. Would have liked to see more advancement from within the company and more appreciation of employee feedback. Hardest realization that potential earnings are capped through route revisions and commission structure changes (mostly within the last 3 years).

Advice to Senior ManagementFoster talent from within, the company develops strong leaders through the type of work offered, but there are oft "missed opportunities" in fostering talent from within.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
