As a Route Sales Representative, you would drive a small Frito-Lay truck which requires a regular driver's license and insurance. Hours per week average approximately 50 hours and include weekend and/or holiday work in all weather conditions.

Some of the more frequent tasks you would perform include:

  • Driving to assigned locations

  • Check-in with store decision maker, check-in delivery, obtain signatures, collect proof of delivery

  • Using equipment (e.g. carts, pallets, etc.) to unload products and move throughout the store

  • Merchandising cases from the back room to the sales floor, filling display units or shelves with products such as Doritos, Classic Lays, Tostitos, Smartfood Popcorn, etc.

Start times typically begin between three o'clock and seven o'clock in the morning. Hours per week average 50 to 60 hours and include weekend and/or holiday work in all weather conditions.

Our diverse team strives for perfection, and you should feel comfortable working under minimal supervision. We are proud to set industry standards in terms of pay and benefits.

RSRs who come to work with us have a wide variety of experience. Team members have honed their skills with success in prior roles including sales jobs, retail jobs, restaurant jobs, and customer service jobs. We all pride ourselves on the quality of our work, but we do have some minimum requirements in common:

  • Ability to climb, push, pull, bend, stoop, and kneel for extended periods of time, with or without reasonable accommodation

  • Ability to lift 40 lbs. with or without reasonable accommodation (examples: a microwave; a cinder block)

This position also requires a review of your driving history.

People often ask what kind of characteristics will make them successful in this position. Here is an idea of what our managers are looking for:

  • Strong Work Ethic: as a RSR, you are trusted to represent Frito-Lay values to your colleagues, customers, and the public. You accurately report your time using your company-issued device and you are comfortable working without a manager monitoring your day-to-day activities.

  • Flexibility: you are able to adapt to changing situations, new tasks and priorities as changes occur; you will encounter challenges and resolve them by yourself

  • Customer Focus: when you are in the stores with our customers, you help them find what they need and deliver service that exceed their expectations

  • Attention to Detail: our RSRs are meticulous when it comes to checking dates on chips, tidying shelves, and arranging products; you are also responsible for accurately completing daily paperwork (e.g. DOT logs)

  • Communication: you will be working closely with other Frito-Lay team members and it's important to communicate regularly; good communication also includes checking in and out with the store manager

  • Positive Attitude: you will be part of a sales team that relies on one another to build professional relationships and attend to customer needs while following Frito-Lay and store procedures, work rules and safety policies

  • Tech Savvy: you are very comfortable using multiple technology devices each day to accomplish your goals

  • Conscientious: you are organized, task driven, comfortable following direction and adhering to a specific schedule

  • Initiative: our RSRs often describe their routes as "their business." You have a deep understanding of your role within the sales team and you constantly strive to achieve and exceed sales growth targets
