US: Pepsi Bottling Group expands workforce

By | 22 June 2007

The Pepsi Bottling Group (PBG) has declared that it is seeking to expand its workforce at the company's customer service centre in Winston-Salem, NC.

The US-based bottler said yesterday (21 June), that it is looking at adding a further 150 jobs to the customer service centre that houses the business units for Pepsi Business Services and Pepsi Direct.

PBG has said that it is recruiting financial professionals and sales and management teams and bilingual candidates to represent the brand.

The reports follow Pepsi Bottling Group posting a reasonably flat start to 2007.

The US-based bottler said in April that sales in the first quarter of 2007 rose by 4% year-on-year, totalling US$2.5bn. Net income, however, slid from $34m to $29m, as a $4m non-cash expense for "accounting for uncertainty in income taxes" made its presence felt.

While volumes in the US declined by 1%, European volumes were up by 8% driven by a more than 20% improvement in Russia. In Mexico, volumes were down by 3%.
