    Pros

    Length of work days depend on when you get done with the work, not when you hit 8 hours. It's incredibly to get overtime, in fact I'd be surprised if you didn't.

    Cons

    Depending on the day and the amount of orders per store, some days may take almost 12 hours to complete.

    Advice to Management

    decrease load by sending help for employees that have lots of orders and/or only order what is necessary to decrease unnecessary backstock.


  2. Excellent for learning and career development.

    I worked at Dr Pepper Snapple Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people that work there are extremely talented and smart The company has a great culture and fun working environment - work hard/play hard Discounted soft drinks!!

    Cons

    Some of the managers lack adequate people skills...i.e - don't know how to treat people and appreciate/recognize hard work or hard efforts by the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure that a "manager of others" has the skills interact appropriately with people who report to them. DPSG is not a consulting firm, even though some former consulting people that work there think that it is...

    Pros

    Work at your own pace, very easy work, do not really have a lot of supervisor looking over your shoulder

    Cons

    Some of the other employees were not great workers and did not put in a lot of effort

    Advice to Management

    There should be stricter rules so routes are not getting so messed up and larger consequences to employees who do not follow rules. Look to Pepsi their Merchandisers and Sales Reps work together and work more efficient
