  • 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)

  • 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
