    Pros

    I enjoyed some of my colleagues - felt like a team environment.

    Cons

    There are those few "good ole boys" that are going to be promoted no matter what. HR is a joke - they don't care about you as an employee - just care about the company.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Long 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 ManagementAdvice

    If part time person wants to leave and there is opportunity to return full time, let them

    Pros

    It 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.

    Cons

    The 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.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Dealing 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 ManagementAdvice

    Part 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!!!!
