    Trucks can be late but beggars can't be choosers. Mainly on Fridays though cause the are filling the stores up for the weekend.

    Pros

    Great benefits, good pay, work at your own pace.

    Cons

    Too many accounts on routes for the amount of products carried. Keep adding new products and expect us to keep the same amount of accounts. VROT pay not worth it!!! Long days!!!

    Advice to Management

    New routes need to be created and stores taken off routes. Way too much for a day's work!

    I have been working at Coca-Cola Bottling Consolidated full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good job security. Benefits are good with company matching 5%

    Cons

    Overall pay is below average for the industry. Management needs to take a serious look at revamping the pay structure. Culture is very average. It would benefit everyone on all the teams if they worked on collaboration, and weekly employee feedback.

    Pros

    decent pay and benefits depending on your ability to endure a grueling life work balance.

    Cons

    If you or a family member is sick and have to take a few days off, forget about sympathy and throw empathy out the window. The Managers seem to be highly driven in a way that makes Napoleon look like a nihilist. On their red horse of greed they're crushing anyone's spirit who gets in their way. Don't get hurt on the job or you will be treated as a failure. Give them 100% they may give you 3% if you are lucky. Whatever hours you are expected to work, add three. Check in time takes too long, cash out time takes longer, and you will fill out more paperwork and files than the KGB.

    Advice to Management

    Don't treat your employees like a fourteen hour battery. Drivers are real people and usually professionals who have worked hard to achieve their merits.

    I have been working at Coca-Cola Bottling Consolidated part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    decent hourly wage and benefits (only if you are full time employee)

    Cons

    no benefits for part time workers. only 25 hours a week. management is poor at dealing with employees and ignores them until there is a mistake made. and little chance to move up. also don't seem to care about employees well being as well as the equipment's.

    Advice to Management

    Be more of a presence to employees and don't only show up when you have negative things to say or want something done.
