    I worked at PepsiCo full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Any where but Knoxville and you would probably love it, I know I did. Worked in a Michigan facility for 8 years and it was the best job I ever had. When your first hired at Knoxville plant they treat you pretty good. Pay is okay.

    Cons

    Management are two faced, with very few exceptions. They blindside everyone, if you work there and stir up any kind of noise at all, about working conditions, pay shortages, or just unable to handle the 70 hr weeks which are illegal by the way, you will be fired. As a driver here, you have no stability or job security. The average driver there quits in a bout a year if they don't get fired first from the poor training they received.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a backbone and treat your employees like people instead of a number. Honesty is non-existent at this facility. Investigate a little before you blindside someone, it could be a mistake on the DMV's part. Give the benefit of doubt once in a while, especially to your veterans. They have given you a lot more than you have given them.

    This place WAS great before new middle management was set in place. Now it is like a prison and JUST a paycheck.

    I worked at PepsiCo full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits and perks are good.

    Cons

    New management is horrible! Blind leading the blind! Average raise is only 2%, even if you show initiative and work your tail off. No room for advancement. Revolving door of employees/managers, constant change leading to utter chaos, no solid direction in any of the departments. Organization, leadership, common sense and "the buck stops here" are NON-existent. Training, what training? It's sink or swim only. If you are a Union member, you are safe, otherwise watch your back! A lot of politics and favoritism. Company morale has been shot dead and buried, with no chance for a rising Phoenix.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Weed out middle management, there are some rotten apples in the barrel. Bring back managers that worked under PBG, before PepsiCo re-took over.
