Not a good location to work

Pepsi is a good company to work for. However, the Austin location was nothing but a disappointment. This location has experienced massive growth in the past couple of years and Pepsi simply cannot cope. They don’t have the space or equipment to be able to keep up. As a loader, be expected to work until after 7am. The job is advertised as an “evening” job, but it is really an overnight job. You will work 16+ hours and have mandatory OT on your off days. Benefits are good and compensation is alright, could be better considering the shift you’re working. There is no work/life balance. You won’t even get a full 8 hours sleep between the time you get off and your next shift. As a new loader, they don’t bother you too much about speed and quotas but after you have been there a certain amount of time they ride you about it. The environment is typical for a warehouse, lots of males and a woman or two. Some people are nice to the newbies and some treat them poorly and make bets on how long someone will last. If you have a record or are in a money crunch, it’s a good place to work. Otherwise, don’t even waste your time. The money is not worth the damage it will do to your body as well as the personal sacrifices you will have to make to work there. Until Pepsi learns about efficiency and proper operations, they will have a high turnover rate. The Austin warehouse is not unionized. 1 star.

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.
