Frito Lay Job Openings – Packaging Machine Operator

Website Frito Lay

Job Description:

The Packaging Machine Operator is responsible for setting up and operating assigned packaging machines and statistical scales to pack the optimum number of quality packages of product. 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.

Job Responsibilities:

  • You will set-up and operate multiple packaging machines to ensure accurate code dates, weights, and that products are put into appropriate bags.
  • You will check that products are dated and sealed with a minimum amount of wasted product and supplies.
  • You will also be responsible for ensuring that products to be packed remain clean.
  • You will maintain a clean and safe work area. Safety is everyone’s job.
  • You will perform basic preventative maintenance on packaging machines such as cleaning or switching out knives and blades, pull-belts, tape machines, or rollers, depending on the need.
  • You will wear protective gear when using chemicals to clean and sanitize lines during changeovers from one product to another.
  • You will inspect conveyors and scales prior to line start-ups & changeovers.
  • You will troubleshoot commonplace problems and make operational adjustments.

Job Requirements:

  • Good Communicator: you will be interacting with various co-workers, from junior employees to leadership.
  • Problem Solving: our business depends on us keeping packaging machines operating. You tackle commonplace mechanical issues with machinery and quickly come up with a “plan B” when needed, such as during a changeover or starting a new line.
  • Efficient: you prioritize tasks while multitasking. For example, you might be changing film on one line as a second line breaks down; meanwhile, a packer is shutting off a line which will require your attention; it is at this point when a manager approaches you and asks how things are going.
  • Leadership: we trust you to help make sure that everything is going smoothly. You will coach packers and processing operators by providing courteous support and feedback.
  • Tech Savvy: Frito-Lay is an industry leader when it comes to smart automated technology and tracking production and inventory. Having a comfort level learning new technology will help you thrive in our performance based culture.
  • High Integrity: mistakes can lead to food safety and regulatory issues which is why all Frito-Lay employees are forthcoming and transparent about mistakes

Qualification & Experience:

  • You are at least 18 years of age or older
  • You will be required to work on weekends, holidays as well as off shift
  • You are mechanically inclined and can think that way. Having at least 1 year of machine operator experience in a high-speed manufacturing environment would be a good indicator to our hiring team.
  • It’s a physical job: you are able to lift 50 lbs from floor to waist (e.g. a twin-size mattress) with or without a reasonable accommodation
  • You have basic math skills and can read and write in English
  • You are able to stand and walk for extended periods of time with or without a reasonable accommodation
  • You are able to climb, bend, reach, stoop, kneel, and stretch for extended periods with or without a reasonable accommodation
  • You are able to repeatedly lift, carry, push, pull, and handle products with or without a reasonable accommodation
