    Pros

    Workload was cut and dry, was able to work 8 or so hours everyday. Minimal supervision, relatibely laid back work environment.

    Cons

    Very low pay. No chance for advancement. Blanket "average" reviews/raises not actually based on performance. I went a year without missing a delivery with happy customers/salesman and got the same 3.0 review everyone else got. Also was passed for multiple promotions despite a military background that included sales experience with budweiser. Also the worst pay of 4 dsd companies I've worked for.

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within.

    Pros

    At the functional level there is a genuine interest in helping each other out. Front line employees can rely on each other. There ARE talented people in the organization at all levels.

    Cons

    In my section there was managerial incompetence from top down. the division rules by fear, which gets worse down the hierarchy. Too many managers are put into place without any skills training. So incompetence is covered up through yelling, threats, and political maneuvering. The company is unable/unwilling to remove the incompetent managers. As a result, the company is stuck in a 1940's production model, and is unable to change. Because of this, and when compared to other companies, coke is in for a rough ten years.

    Advice to Management

    Executives must face the hard truth - from the VP suite downward, incompetence reigns. there's a reason certain regions are doing poorly. Do 360 reviews and remove unpopular managers. Then change the corporate culture from fear to collaboration.

    Pros

    Worked on a nice team

    Cons

    Systems slow, old files used and clog up all of the time, Not enough work. Not the friendliest atmosphere

    Advice to Management

    ask your employees what they want. Start trusting them to work from home; management does it all of the time, but most of the lowly employees can't, Doesn't make sense to me, they do all of the work - you should want to make them happy.

    Pros

    Great time off from the beginning

    Cons

    Sick days aren't sick days... you have to schedule these off. you take any day off even if you provide a drs note whether it be for yourself or a child you will have an occurrence against you. They shorten your lunch breaks to half hour whenever their service level calls for it

    Advice to Management

    treat your staff like people not a number each case individually. not everyone milks the system there are some legitimate reasons for taking time off... you all need to be as flexible as you expect us to be. we understand policy but policy is nothing but a guideline. Maybe schedule breaks a little better doing this kind of work you need an hour for lunch or your staff will burn out and leave.

    Turn from your wicked ways and eliminate your racist corporate culture and practices.
