Extremely Hard Work, Disfunctional Management

Bulk Account Merchandiser (Former Employee) Charleston, SC

ProsSalary is $40K-$45K
Benefits are decent
Turnover is high (for good reasons), but that makes this an easy job to get if you need one
You work in different accounts everyday and get to interact with a wide variety of people

ConsCoke does not pay standard overtime, instead they pay VROT, which works out to about $5 an hour. Consequently, they work their merchandisers to death, and then to add insult to injury, they hold many long-winded meetings, filled with information which could easily have been condensed into a short email and dishonest propaganda. Management is constantly trying to reinvent the wheel instead of just letting their workers do their jobs. This is a company that definitely thinks punishing and hypercriticizing people is cheaper than rewarding them. In 2011, they announced major changes to how merchandisers do their jobs. Managers now track merchandisers with GPS. They also required merchandisers to work 6 days on, 2 off, until many people quit, including myself. Then they switched to a system where many full-time workers were forced to become part-time workers without benefits. Who knows what's next? One thing is guaranteed. Life for workers at CCBCC is going downhill fast.

Advice to Senior ManagementYou are everything that is wrong with corporate America. We are not your slaves. Bring your attitudes toward workers out of the 19th century.
