Frito Lay Warehouse/Material Handler in Syracuse, New York

Frito-Lay Warehouse/Material Handlers are responsible for a variety of
warehouse 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: \* Load and unload pallets and
individual cases to and from trailers, as well as collect empty pallet
boards and carry them to storage \* Pick appropriate cases according to
order using required technology \* Safely operate a forklift after we
provide you training and you obtain certification \* Load trailers via
carts or stack cases on the floor of a truck trailer \* Receive and
distribute product and assist in weekly product inventory \* General
housekeeping and specific sanitation tasks as required (e.g. you may be
asked to sweep the floor, help clean a trailer, take out the trash,
etc.) \* 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: \* You are 18 years of age or older

or without a reasonable accommodation \* You are able to repeatedly

and able to work in an environment that has extreme temperatures,
humidity, hazardous/loud equipment, and slippery surfaces 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
changes, and sudden work schedule changes. \* 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. Does this sound like you? Join
