Frito-Lay Raw Material Receiving Technicians are responsible for a variety
of receiving duties. A key component of PepsiCo's success, Frito-Lay has
been making the very best snacks for over 80 years. Classic Lay's®,
Cheetos®, and Doritos® are just a few of the products that you would help
us produce in one of our manufacturing facilities. Although you will start
out working for Frito-Lay, this job can open the door to career
opportunities with our parent company, PepsiCo.

We are open 24 hours a day, which means you may not have a typical
schedule. As a Full-Time team member, you would work between 40 and 50
hours per week and be eligible to receive full company benefits including
health insurance, dental and vision, retirement savings benefits including
401(k) with company contribution, vacation days, and much more. Full-Time
work schedules may include overtime hours. Part-Time positions may be
flexible, averaging between 20 and 25 hours per week.

It's a physical job! If you have never worked in a warehouse environment
before, you should understand that you will be on your feet for 90% - 95%
of your shift. It also gets loud and the Frito-Lay manufacturing facilities
are large. While we want everyone to feel comfortable, our ability to
control the temperature in our warehouses is limited. Indoor warehouse
working conditions are impacted by seasons and the weather.

Here is a list of some of the more frequent tasks you could expect to
perform during the course of the workday:

• Unload railcars of corn, cornmeal, and oil

• Unload potato trucks

• Unload truck deliveries of seasoning packaging material

• Conduct quality testing of all raw materials

• Safely operate a forklift after we provide you training and you obtain
certification

• Safely move and stage railcars after training and certification on the
Trackmobile

• Deliver raw materials to production

• Assist with weekly raw material inventory

• General housekeeping and specific sanitation tasks to maintain food and
product safety in raw material storage areas

• Use of a respirator is required during certain tasks

• Ability to work at heights is required

• Inside and outside work in all weather conditions required

• Lift objects that weigh anywhere between 15 pounds and 50 pounds (i.e.
anything from a bowling ball to a twin-size mattress) with or without a
reasonable accommodation

The Frito-Lay Warehouse team comes to us with a wide variety of
experiences, usually after honing their skills with prior success in
warehouses but also other fast-paced environments. While prior knowledge is
always a plus, we are happy to provide thorough training on OSHA
(Occupational Safety and Health Administration), FDA (Food and Drug
Administration), and FSMA (Food Safety Modernization Act) regulations.

Whether you are experienced or not, please be sure that you meet the
following minimum requirements prior to starting your application:

For our top performers, we further invest in you by offering training in
the safe operation of a forklift.

People often ask what kind of characteristics will make them successful in
this position. At a minimum, we expect you to show up because we track
attendance closely.

Do you think you have what it takes to perform at our level? Here is an
idea of what our managers are looking for:

Communication: you will interact with coordinators, peers, managers, and
team leads about issues, downtime and breaks because communication is
essential for a successful day.

Flexibility: we look out for one another on the warehouse floor by being
flexible when we must tackle production schedule changes, environmental

Tech Savvy: Frito-Lay is an industry leader when it comes to smart
automated technology and tracking production and inventory. Being
comfortable learning new technology will help you thrive in our
performance-based culture.

Work Ethic: we expect you to go "above and beyond" on your assigned job
tasks. We closely track performance and efficiency throughout work shifts.
This includes volunteering for additional assignments not directly related
to your specific job role because your performance helps the team achieve
overall performance goals.

Teamwork: we are dependable and accountable to one another because of our
shared passion to attain targets and goals. Offering help to others without
being asked to do so is expected at Frito-Lay.

Attention to Detail: you make a conscious effort to pay attention to the
task at hand, accurately read product codes and labels, and correctly pick
load the correct quantity of products for shipment.

Safety Focus: we wear safety equipment, follow current good manufacturing
practices (CGMPs), perform proper forklift inspections and follow forklift
operating guidelines and procedures, and communicate safety issues and
concerns. We believe that safety is everyone's responsibility.
