Great learning experience, however very physically demanding position.

Retail Accounts Representative (Former Employee)
Texarkana, TX

I worked at Coca-Cola Enterprises, Inc. full-time for more than 3 years

ProsIn this position, you get to work with great customers and really set up a network of professional people that you can continually build on throughout your career.

ConsLong hours, very physically demanding. Too many bosses with different opinions of what needs to be done, without a clear description of what should be.

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to the worker bees, they are the ones who interact with the customers on a daily basis and know what they need and want to continue a successful business partnership.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Very Demanding for the Compensation

Account Manager (Current Employee)
Detroit, MI

I have been working at Coca-Cola Enterprises, Inc.

ProsYou get a company car that you can drive anywhere in the US and the pay for the gas. The bonuses are pretty good if you hit them, and they usually aren't too difficult to hit if you plan for them. Its good to be out and on your own doing things without a manger breathing down your neck.

ConsToo many pointless meetings that lasted way too long. The management will simply push goals down your throat even if they aren't achievable. The demands only increase as your time with the company increases. What the ultimately want you to do is not in the customers best interest, but in Coke's best interest only. They don't understand what it is like to sell some of the stuff, they simply think everyone wants what they have cause they are Coke. Politics, but I guess this is everywhere.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe Big CEOs need to come down and do sales for a week. Pretend you are a trainee and see what the sales people put up with it. The starting salary should be at least 40k-45k as well, the employees are way underpaid for all the hard work they put into things.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Must try harder.

Field Sales (Former Employee)
London, England (UK)

I worked at Coca-Cola Enterprises, Inc. full-time for more than 8 years

ProsCompany car, personal fuel allowance (stopped now) however. 25 days holiday. Amazing maternity package.

ConsRarely see any other employees. Poor wage in comparison to other FMCG companies. Working for CCE is not at all in line with the global perception of the Coca Cola brand.

Advice to Senior ManagementIncentivise, engage, focus money in the places. Allow employees to control individual budgets for POS and equipment. Quickly becoming known to customers as penny pinching in our attitude. Let's take it back to only coke can do!

– I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
