My experience at PepsiCo: "I wanted to work for an organization where I could build on the knowledge I had acquired, and with PepsiCo Canada's world class status, I knew that if I put in the effort I could thrive and grow.

My experience at PepsiCo: "The aspect I enjoy the most about PepsiCo Canada is its people. Every time I walk into a meeting I walk out feeling smarter and that’s incredibly important to me.

Although this is a competitive environment, it is not one where people will do anything to get ahead – if anything, people will do anything they can to help you succeed. You won’t find that in many places."
