    We worked long hours but made it fun

    Quality Assurance and Machine Operator (Former Employee) Charlotte, NC

    ProsThe pay is great. Great people. Some opportunity to move around.

    ConsLong hours if working on 2nd shift. Hiring primarily part time people. Full time employees do not leave very often so you have to wait long time for that. Old equipment and dirty production floor.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIf part time person wants to leave and there is opportunity to return full time, let them

    Good Place To Work

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsIt 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.

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

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

    Bulk Account Merchandiser (Current Employee) Skyland, NC

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

    ConsDealing 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 Senior ManagementPart 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!!!!

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

    merchandiser

    Merchandiser (Current Employee)

    Prospart-time merchandisers make decent money and work around 16-20 hours in a weekend and our expected to work holidays, but don't have to. The management and employees are very good and try to work around your schedule.

    ConsThe opportunity to move up in the company is very hard, because there are not many jobs required to run a warehouse. The warehouse I'm at has 3 managers, 7 full-time employees, and 10 part-time.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work, but offer more incentive to keep part-time employees around.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
