    Pros

    Expectations are clearly set. Possibility of advancement. Steady employment. Direct supervisor understands the job and gives tools needed to allow an employee to perform better.

    Cons

    A lot of lifting. Pay should be higher for the amount of work you perform.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find incentives for employees to perform at the level you expect.

    I have been working at Coca-Cola Bottling Consolidated full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Its a job that pays the bills. Co-workers are great. You have the chance to move up from the bottom. You get 2 weeks vacation, 401k, and health benefits from the start.

    Cons

    Long hours. Half time over-time. More work than time you are routed for. Routing has no margin for error.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would suggest adding additional routes to ease the workload or adjust routing to allow room for error. This will allow drivers to possibly take a lunch break and use the bathroom. Ease the stress the tight time table puts on us. There is a reason 5 drivers have quit in the last 3 months.

    Pros

    Great History with fantastic storylines

    Cons

    Poor work environment with no real opportunity for advancement unless you are in a chic, not based on your performance but if they like you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lead by example, not by words. Actions speak louder than words.

    Pros

    Work alone, driving all around, talk to lots of people and help them grow business and make more money.

    Cons

    All the information is out there, just you have to figure out how to find it. When you asked something outside the basics you get passed around without real answers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You all are are in to many meetings and don't know some of the basics of our job to be able to understand slightly different approaches we may have ideas for. We are to sale but research and silly paperwork the call center should do take us away from getting new accounts.
