  • 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
