    I worked at Coca-Cola Enterprises, Inc. full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Worked out of the office everyday. Interesting customers that you form professional relationships with that challenges you to select the right mix of products for their business. Compensation of 38,000 to start with yearly raises. You are only in the office for maybe half an hour at the beginning and end of your sales route to fill out necessary paperwork. Everyone I worked with were professional and decent, hardworking co-workers. Support from management depended on the specific individual from excellent to non-existent.

    Cons

    You worked alone on the road which would seem independent, but in truth, you have very limited authority to make deals and sell.. You are really just an order taker with a scheduled route that never changes and grows old very quickly. Not very challenging. Alot of pressure to get customers to buy product that doesn't benefit their business just to meet quotas set at corporate level. Lots of accountability and responsibility without the necessary authority or empowerment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Empower your sales force to truly sell by providing more support in the form of product placement and pricing.

    I worked at Coca-Cola Enterprises, Inc.

    Pros

    Lots of employee activities to offset high call volume. The supervisors give you every chance to succeed, and the only thing they don't give very much slack is on attendance issues. The job is extremely easy though.

    Cons

    Extremely high call volumes and very low opportunity for advancement. Also, penetration commissions are tiny and do not amount up to the work and call volume you handle.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For an entry level job where you don't have to have a degree to work, this is perfect. You get what you put in to the job.

    Pros

    Pay was Good for a home every night driving job. Work pass was fast, but the quicker you got down the sooner you went home.

    Cons

    A lot of lifting. Often did not have enough power pallet jacks. Needed to stack and move a lot of merchandise into stores and put up much of the product.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better control over someof the shop owners that required to much work out of the delivery drivers. Don't require drivers to use manual pallet jacks.

    Being trained by co workers that don't speak English . Really ? You've worked here over 10 years and you can speak English .
