Route Sales Representative
Posted 2 years ago

What do you like about working at Frito-Lay?

"Absolutely Nothing! This is by far the worst company I have ever worked for."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"I have been at this Co for 4 years. The only reason I stay is simple I need a job. If you are contemplating working here DON'T do it. I can't wait to get out, this is like a prison sentence."

What don't you like about working at Frito-Lay?

"You are micro managed to the max. If you are making sales and unsaleable plan they leave you alone. If not then you are drilled like a criminal. They harass you on your days off. They use your personal cell phone as if it is a tool for them to reach you whenever they want."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Go to Church, you're gonna need it. Decent people don't treat others the way you do."

Route Sales Representative
Posted 2 years ago in Corpus Christi, TX

What do you like about working at Frito-Lay?

"Pay. Benefits. Job security. Professionalism. Leader in their type of business."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"Understand that when they say long hours and holidays, they mean it. If you are quick with your hands, a team player, and have a spouse with a more flexible schedule for kids, then this may be a good job for you."

What don't you like about working at Frito-Lay?

"Long work hours, sometimes 70+. Commission based pay. Lack of local leadership. Lack of communication. Retail. Waste. Being financially responsible for failed promotions. Was more of a delivery service than sales. Benefits program changing for worse."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Operating for long periods of time with less than 50% management positions filled hurts sales, communication, overall work environment. Promotions that do not work cost sales rep money, and exponentially more time to move around and try to get rid of. This takes up time and space, and generates a ridiculous amount of waste. The customers do not want this in their stores, and reps could be spending time running numbers and finding something that will grow their specific accounts. Therefore, current business practices go against the company's creed of doing all possible best serving accounts."
