Tough to get permanent

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Tough to get permanent contracts only at the start lucky if there is 10 perm jobs and about 80 going for them . It’s a very hard place to get into great money tho

Working for pepsico

I've had many jobs in my young career, this is by far the best company I have worked for. The money is brilliant, very comfortable living. I'm currently on a short term contract but hopeful it will be extended. The work is fast paced and isn't too hard, plenty of progression if you show initiative and interest. Love going to work on a daily basis. Hopeful for a permanent would mean to world to me.

Pros

Canteen, overtime, excellent wages, friendly staff, management.

Cons

Longer contracts, more permanent jobs for hard working individuals

Next to impossible to get a full time position there.

Overall very good to work for

I worked in the Food flavour plant in Little Island cork. PepsiCo are an excellent company to work for and I would highly recommend it as a company. From Management to operations staff the work culture is fantastic. Professional yet flexible make PepsiCo a very good place to work.

Best job I ever had

Great job, great atmosphere, engaging and encouraging management. You can gain a great deal of experience if you are willing to show initiative and show you want to learn. Very unlikely that you'll be made permanent.

Low pay and no room for progression

Pay is low compared to other industries in the area. The finance management are there for life, so you will never progress as you would elsewhere. Move on fast if you want a career or don't bother going there in the first place.

Pros

Work life balance

Cons

No progression and low pay

fun workplace

It was only work experience for secondary school, so i didn't get a real feel of it, but what i do know is that is a very enjoyable work environment. Everyone was busy doing their job.

Good place to work

Very good place to work. Good money and plenty of OT. People are really nice and always ready to help. But there is one "BUT".. Why there's not even one foreign person on a Perm basis? I don't belive there wasn't even one Lituahnian or Polish as good as Irish. I think that is a very big problem in this company. Everything else works well.

Pros

Work enviroment, people, work/life balance

Cons

Discrimination?

Great place to work

Great place to work. Great money. Difficult to get permanent. Two shifts work. No problem with holidays. Extra benefits like free pepsi or chips. Good food.

no work life balance

wages are poor so overtime is a must. No shift all year round and you loose your 20%. no health insurance. if your sick you loose your first 3 days pay

Easy going and productive

I work in data oriented team with excellent management. Training is a bit sketchy at times, however this is not due to anyone's incompetence, but merely high work load.

Pros

Good office culture

Cons

Training could be a bit better

Fantastic team to work with

This is the longest I have been with any company and I am excited to be moving to a new role (still with PepsiCo) but in a different part of the world. As I leave I cannot recommend working at PepsiCo in Cork enough: Amazing, friendly team who are hardworking and supportive and who you can have some fun with along the way. The everyday work experience is exciting, varied and challenging and helps support overall career development. The management, even at the most senior levels, are approachable, caring, authentic and inspiring. The team are particularly supportive of female development and as a woman, I think it is a great company to work for. The pay and benefits are also above the average in Cork for similar roles. The best thing about it all though, is the wonderful colleagues who you’ll work with everyday.

Pros

People, Management, Benefits, culture, Summer and Santa hours

Cons

Nothing

Strong growth & learning

Culture is strong for learning & growth. Many people are friendly and willing to help newer employees. Great benefits. Great salary. Focus swayed too much to cost savings instead of careers. Heavy workload and long hours.

Pros

Culture is strong for learning & growth.

Cons

Heavy workload and long hours.
