    Pros

    Great company with terrific benefits and great management from top to bottom. Work can be difficult at times but is very rewarding. The training program is great as well.

    Cons

    No commission for exceeding company goals. Would be nice to be rewarded for surpassing set goals and making more money for the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to continue doing what they are because the company is in a state of continuous improvement. Continue creating challenging, but attainable plans and providing the tools necessary for folks to execute.

    I have been working at Coca-Cola Bottling Consolidated full-time

    Pros

    It is great working for one of the most recognized brands in the world. In my three years of employment, I was able to gain experience in an area outside of my day to day job function.

    Cons

    The opportunities are limited because the organization runs lean and turn over is low in corporate.

  10.  

    Overall good, pay could be better. Most vendors make more money than a coke employee.

    I have been working at Coca-Cola Bottling Consolidated full-time

    Pros

    Keeps me in good physical shape. A lot of freedom with this job.

    Cons

    Dealing with bad calls from supervisors. Routes will get cut and add extra work to other employees. The part time system in bulk is ridiculous. They want to pay someone $9 hr to kill themselves. Holidays are tough and they won't send everyone help, just a select few. Account developers get incentives for selling incremental displays to stores. However merchandiser gets nothing and consistently gets more product to work and manage.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Part time system will be the collapse of the company. I see it every week. We give our customers terrible service. Pepsi is killing coke in this area. They actually keep their shelves full and have excellent customer service. We are falling to the same level as RC!!!!
