    Pros

    There is no pros with this Employer ...people with seniority are bullies they will make you look bad if they don't like you.

    Cons

    Maybe salary and we really earn every dollar on day to day basis....

    Advice to Management

    Please walk the walk and talk the talk....it's a shame that you have employee with few years of seniority to lied to you and no one listen new comers.

    Pros

    Great brand, the world knows Coca-Cola.

    Cons

    Tied to a phone all day dealing with angry consumers. Upper management unavailable and middle managerment have no authority to make decisions needed on the floor. Horrible hours, horrible pay. Non-transparent company. Always being "watched", monitored and graded.

    Pros

    Pay was okay to start, but not for one merchandiser doing the work of 3 people and traveling all of the time.

    Cons

    Management has NO CLUE how poorly they treat their LOYAL employees, as long as they get their paycheck, they don't care about the UNREASONABLE "crap" that they dump on the good working, loyal employees. Too bad that they don't have to do what they DEMAND us to do!!!

    Advice to Management

    Get a clue, treat your good employees well and you might find that they actually stay with Coca Cola. You can't expect some of your employees to work 10+ days in a row & travel 500 miles a week to CONSTANTLY fix your internal problems, without getting a lot of backlash from the ABUSED employees. Like(don't love it anymore) my job but it's not worth being abused DAILY by your management that can't hire & keep part-time people because of your screwed up ideas and all of the travel. Wasn't hired to put on 500 miles a week. Keep your promises to your good employees or you will have NONE!! Word of mouth travels well in a rural area.

    Pros

    There is no lack of work, from the time you clock in you are given tasks to complete throughout the work shift. You can work independently or as a team. Great pay and benefits.

    Cons

    Everyone that works here has a don't care attitude, especially the management. This reflects on the workers themselves, who work to create overtime. The company is unorganized and there is little rook for growth. This is almost a hostile work environment. You also are forced into a Union work place, which creates a lazy and uncaring work place.

    Advice to Management

    Care about your workers and the work that is getting done. Don't expect that people are ready to work for a boss who isn't ready to work. Hire management who have done the job of the employees, and someone who can boost morale and create an efficient and dynamic work environment.

    Pros

    Global company with name recognition. Renovations to the AOC campus are nice.

    Cons

    This company is so far behind the times in terms of telecommuting and technology it isn't even funny. Their systems are beyond archaic, making any work tedious. All of the top execs jet around the world spending gobs of cash and the rank and file are subject to layoffs and series lack of opportunity.

    Advice to Management

    The board of directors needs to clean house and bring in someone not cultivated in the old boys club system of management.

    Pros

    Pay was good, very good benefits (expensive though) and not much else really.

    Cons

    Management picks and chooses who to enforce company policies on. No work/life balance whatsoever, never know when you'll be off. Impossible to request time off or call in for emergencies. Hard work load, very physically demanding.

    Pros

    Fellow workers, everybody was promised the same pipe dream.

    Cons

    Upper management treat you like they are above you. In your interview, they will promise you advancement, not happening. Where you start is where you will be, for a long period of time. Your reviews are good enough to keep you hoping, but not good enough for advancement. "step it up a notch" and "you will get the next opening" More work, same pay.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of the people doing the work, and and less time with sales parties, celebrating all the hard work the merchandisers get done, not the sales people. They do not sell, they are order takers.

    Pros

    Plenty of fringe benefits, lots of overtime if you are hourly, great people

    Cons

    overworked, poor people management, work no life balance. Expectation is unrealistic. Management can careless about front line. Hi turn over as a result. Micromanaged to the second with bigbrother CCtv

    Advice to Management

    Please and thank you, good job, do you need anything, hello, have a good day, good by,,,, are words you can add to your current vocabulary. Lack of common courtesy speaks volumes here.
