    Pros

    Entertaining people from all around the world
    Making lasting relationships, having fun and finding a job that is flexible for college students.

    Cons

    The pay and simplicity of the work.
    The inability to grow within the company, and the managers and supervisors who makes the jobs harder than it needs to be. Who knew that their would be so many rules and regulations on making people happy.

    I have been working at Coca-Cola Company full-time

    Pros

    There really isn't too much I can say about coca-cola that would be of interest because of there policies that strictly works for the company and not for the employee unless you're in the union.

    Cons

    The downsides are part of the issues that make coca-cola not worthy of wanting to work for them, because you can do your job and well, wait a year for a raise and it is not conducive to what you feel you should have got and no where near and for that matter it makes you feel used.

    Advice to Management

    Its highly important that the companies make there staff person feel appreciated. Certainly , in doing that it will make a even better work atmosphere.

    Pros

    Good company with benefits. Job stability

    Cons

    Extremely hard work, low pay, poor communication from management, never work a 8 hr day, always 10 -12 hrs

    Advice to Management

    After 60 to 90 days of entry level pay, evaluate for more than just $1 raise you may have more employees that don't quit

    Pros

    Pay was okay to start, but not for one merchandiser doing the work of 3 people and traveling all of the time.

    Cons

    Management has NO CLUE how poorly they treat their LOYAL employees, as long as they get their paycheck, they don't care about the UNREASONABLE "crap" that they dump on the good working, loyal employees. Too bad that they don't have to do what they DEMAND us to do!!!

    Advice to Management

    Get a clue, treat your good employees well and you might find that they actually stay with Coca Cola. You can't expect some of your employees to work 10+ days in a row & travel 500 miles a week to CONSTANTLY fix your internal problems, without getting a lot of backlash from the ABUSED employees. Like(don't love it anymore) my job but it's not worth being abused DAILY by your management that can't hire & keep part-time people because of your screwed up ideas and all of the travel. Wasn't hired to put on 500 miles a week. Keep your promises to your good employees or you will have NONE!! Word of mouth travels well in a rural area.

    Pros

    A really big company with really good benefits up to 7 week of paid days off as soon as you start!! Also steady work that won't ever end. With good pay.

    Cons

    Management doesn't seem to care about their workers. It seems to make sure the business makes good numbers rather than listening to employees. Also upset workers forget that we have 7 weeks of paid time off. And be a huge headache to work with.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to input and actually take action. Remember that your employees are the most important part of the company.
