I have been working at Dr Pepper Snapple Group full-time (less than a year)Pros
Autonomous working environment - If you are the kind of individual that thrives without direction and can create your own systems and tools, this is the place to be. Creativity is allowed across the scope of the job, and the team is very supportive of new ideas and innovations that are brought over from other companies.
Self Directed Career Profiling - You have the ability to create your own career path. While it won't be defined for you, developing skills outside of your core job will enable you to seek promotional opportunities outside of a traditional path.
There seems to be enough support to get your job done, but not too much to create office drama.Cons
Innovation is sometimes strangled or thwarted due to old-school methods for getting work done.Advice to ManagementAdvice

Getting an Interview
Getting an Interview
- Application Details
I applied online. The process took 5 weeks – interviewed at Dr Pepper Snapple Group.Interview Details
APPLYING........I went to the Irving tx dr pepper plant to ask if they were hiring, you pull up to the guard and show him your drivers license then he tells you where to park in the visitors section. I went into the front door and when I walk in theres this woman security guard behind the desk which first impression is she just stares with a blank look on her face like shes bored or doesn't care about her job or something. you can tell she doesn't have customer service qualities but anyway Im the one to say hi who could I talk to about getting a job? she tells me to apply online at one of the computers they have to the right side of the entrance. So I go online and see theres a merchandiser position available so I fill out the usual info and take a couple assessment tests. I finish applying online and I go home.........
About a MONTH later finally I get a call from HR, the person who contacted me asked a couple things like if I had customer service experience and warehouse experience I said yes and explained what I had experience in. Also she said the pay was 105 per day I think and average 8-10 hours a day depending on how much work there is but no matter what it would be 105 per day. unless you get overtime hours then they give you a little extra but anyways it was a short call maybe 5min I guess just to confirm everything on my resume was correct. So finally she asks me to come for an interview in like two days I said ok and she said she would email me the info. So after I get off the phone with her I check my email and see the message she sent me with the location and time of the interview. Also it says to dress business casual so I just wore a collared long sleeve shirt with dress pants/shoes and belt. Also they said the interview would consist of a panel of up to 5 people and based on behavioral interview questions.
INTERVIEW........So interview day comes and I show up about 15min early, I walk in the front door and again I see the same sort of annoying woman guard at the desk that acts like the job is sooo boring ughhh shes just annoying but anyways i tell her i have an interview so she has me sign in and wait in the same place by the computers. There were two other people there waiting for the same interview. So the time comes around and each one of us is called in to do the interview. I was last to go in so once i got called in they take me to sort of a meeting type office, theres only two people who were there for my interview the dispatcher and an HR guy. so right away im relieved that theres only two people i was nervous i would have to do it infront of five interviewers. They were really nice and looked like they enjoyed their job and were very kind. The questions were pretty simple like why do you want to work here, how have you gone above and beyond to help a customer, name a time you were asked by a customer to go against company policy, name a time where you didn't have the tools to do your job, i think there was a total of about 10 or so questions like that. So finally they ask if i saw the merchandiser video and explained the pay and work schedule as well as things like how you would clock in and breaks and stuff. they also asked if i had questions. So the interview ended and i asked when i would expect to hear from them, they said two to three days. So i go home and three days pass by and no response, i email them back and no response. Obviously i didn't get the job they had a list of 15 people to interview so my chances were slimInterview Questions
