    Frito Lay Route Sales

    Route Sales Representative (Current Employee) Kansas City, MO (US)

    ProsEasy job. Route bid at 53,000. Easy to grow routes if u follow behind lazy people and there are many. Consistently make over 73k and up to 78k. Company does cut routes and u must grow accounts again or u might drop back down into the 50's. Free shirts, royals tickets, chiefs tickets. Benefits are good! 401k, pension (not available for new employees anymore), vacation.

    ConsEarly starts and route cuts. Company received Herman Lay award (most prestigious). Rsrs received jacket and management got trip to Cancun, Las Vegas and some a trip to Fiesta Bowl. However, if u want to be part of management , u can apply anytime so stop complaining. Many people have hard time with management getting rewards.

    Marketing: Great to build a resume

    Marketing Manager (Current Employee) Albany, NY (US)

    ProsGreat company to build a resume, network and learn fundamentals. Ability to work on national brands as well on innovations.

    ConsNorth America business always under fire. Morale is negatively impacted. I question if salaries and benefits are competitive enough to maintain talented newcomers as well as seasoned producers.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe realistic on work life balance offerings and support. Senior management must lead by example.

    Outstanding work environment

    Talent Acquisition Senior Manager (Current Employee) Plano, TX (US)

    ProsThe people at this company are top shelf. Not only do I work with the best and brightest but I enjoy them from a personal standpoint. This is a place for people that are high-energy and want to win. The company continues to evolve from a food and beverage standpoint which is exciting to see. Salary is extremely fair compared to the rest of the market.

    ConsWorkload is huge but that's what you sign up for when joining the company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to evolve from a healthy food and beverage offering.
