Some of the more frequent tasks you would perform include:

Driving to assigned locations in your personal vehicle (we'll provide mileage reimbursement while you're on the clock)

Rotating products and removing defective and out-of-date products

Tidying up shelves and displays, knocking down boxes and disposing of any waste

It's a physical job. We transform store aisles, end caps, and displays into works of art, from the lowest shelf to the highest shelf. This position requires that you be able to lift 15 to 40 pounds, climb, push, pull, bend, stand, stoop, and kneel for extended periods of time with, or without, a reasonable accommodation.

Attention to Detail: our Merchandisers are meticulous when it comes to checking dates on chips, tidying shelves, and arranging products

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

Does this sound like you?

The way it works is simple: we provide the information and tools to empower you to take charge of your career. At Frito-Lay we'll give you the training to succeed as the newest member of our exceptional team.
