PepsiCo – Why Work For Us?

We are driven to win. Outperforming ourselves is a rush. We’re strong individualists who thrive on collaboration. To us, it’s all about respect – for one another’s unique traits, backgrounds, perspectives and experiences. Our teams reflect the diversity of our consumers and our communities, breaking down barriers, shattering glass ceilings and winning awards. Our Employee Resource Groups are proof-positive that inclusion is a way of life at PepsiCo.

And get this. We actually care about you as a person. Not just the "you" that shows up to work every day. But the "you" that goes home to your loved ones and out into your community. We get that greatness spreads. That at some point work skills and life lessons merge, and at that point everyone’s expectations are blown out of the water. It’s called personal satisfaction. Only everyone wins.

 

We've hired 300,000 entrepreneurs, dreamers, doers, rainmakers and shakers. Every minute of every day on the job, we encourage them to be the best at whatever they’re doing and whoever they are. Stretch assignments, early responsibility, job rotations and awesome mentors are just part of what makes the real world at PepsiCo an unbeatable training ground. Want proof? Eighty percent of our executive team was promoted from within.

 

Blaze new trails. Never settle for second best. Succeed together, celebrate and do something bigger. That’s what performing with purpose is all about.

Around the world, we’re committed to giving people the taste they crave and the nutrition they need. We dream globally and act locally-constantly innovating to sustain our planet, our people, our communities and our business practices. New markets mean new ways of doing business, and new ways of addressing health concerns, cultural differences and environmental challenges. Every day is an adventure, and an opportunity for personal and professional growth.

    I worked at PepsiCo full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    higher than minimum wage, good benefits. If you can land a FT position. Next to impossible as it is mostly relatives.

    Cons

    available for 24 hr shift work, Favoritism given to relatives and friends. Difficult for outsiders to get FT position. Break times too short for the amount of physical demands. They encourage you to speak up/out to supervisors, but if you do, they fire you for being too opinionated or adhereing to policies drilled in during orientation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Break times too short, not enough time to do what needs to be done on a break as you must roll off each time before re-entering again. You do not get proper muscle relaxation in 10-20 min. by the time you get to your locker, go to toilet, wash hands, walk to lunchroom or smoking area outdoors and several meters away from bulding, your time is up and you have not yet rested the muscles you were meant to rest. Is this not the purpose for breaks? to reduce injury and relieve lactic acid build up that causes muscle breakdown. Lots of WCB cases, should be putting up RED FLAGS..... why are you not asking yourselves "Why?" and so many booking off with short notice prior to shift. This would be reason enough to investigate and evaluate breaktime and floor forman for their attitude and behavior towards employees. Why are so many getting hurt or booking off so much? Orientation drills in safety and speaking up to supervisors and to adhere to these policies no matter what!. When speaking to supervisors about such policies and issues you get fired!

    The process took 1+ week - interviewed at PepsiCo.

    Interview Details

    2 person interview. Trades guy and Admin interviewed me. Very informative and scenario type questions. Looked like they where interested in knowing the individual not just the skills. Had a tour of the premise after which was both informative and at the same time a continuation of the interview.
