    Pros

    Managers get to do whatever they want.

    Cons

    Managers get to do whatever, whenever they want. Never saw one in the office before 9am and never saw one in the office after 4pm.
    No rhyme or reason to the actual route. Start in one area and have a customer an hour away in another area all the way across town.
    Expect you to do inventory and load your truck every day before or after your shift then put you out on the road for 12-15 hours a day.
    My training days lasted no less than 12 hours and the longest was 16 hours. I think I averaged $3.25/hour that day.

    Advice to Management

    Clean your priorities up. There is a reason for such high turnover rate.

    Limited travel and reasonable pay and benefits

    Too much politics and too many cliques

    Pros

    Not much to think of here.

    Cons

    Practice Human Right's and Labor Laws in Alberta, Canada. Figure out a more accurate quota system. Stop bullying employees.

    Advice to Management

    Practice Human Right's and Labor Laws in Alberta, Canada. Figure out a more accurate quota system. Stop bullying employees (practice what you preach). Don't post everyone's quota results which ultimately can leave certain employees feelings less about themselves and their work ethic (When the truth is the system is flawed). C'mon this is common sense. Instead of posting everyone's results for everyone to see, go over employees performance in private if there is an issue with there performance. Fix your flaws instead of blaming the hard working employees breaking their backs for 1/5 the amount of money you make.

    Pros

    Great company, hired me while knowing I was looking for another job. Easy work for what you get paid. Can't complain at all.

    Cons

    Generally will be working a 1-9pm shift, so if you like late night shifts...well you'll love it! Hooray! WELCOME TO THE FRITO-LAY FAMILY.

    Pros

    Great leadership development programs. New grads can expect to have high levels of accountability and empowerment.

    A team based environment with great people to work with.

    Constant change leads to new and interesting work.

    Cons

    Fast paced culture. Be prepared to be accountable to deliver results and work at a fast pace.

    More and more centralization of strategy on the U.S. Is driving less autonomy in Canada.
