    I worked at Coca-Cola Bottling Consolidated part-time

    Pros

    It was a decent hourly wage for a part time gig.

    Cons

    Management are not very interested in seeing guys grow and move up within the company. At best you'll become a driver.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more time in your people. Look for guys who want to grow with the company.

    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.

    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.

    I have been working at Coca-Cola Bottling Consolidated full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Salary might help support a family, if you are a full-time employee and your spouse works too Offers benefits

    Cons

    Very long hours (50-60 hours a week are expected from you) Overtime pay unfair ("Chinese overtime" works out to $5 an hour) Most openings now are part-time Constantly changing expectations and routines Flogging workers until morale improves is not a joke here Weekly meetings last a long time, contain little info you need, and are full of propaganda to keep you from asking hard questions

    Advice to Management

    You obviously know that you overwork your employees and lie to them. Nothing I say will make you choose ethical leadership over $$$$$ for the top brass.
