I worked at Coca-Cola Bottling Consolidated

Pros

Salary 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

Cons

Coke 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I have been working at Coca-Cola Bottling Consolidated

    Pros

    Day time hours and good pay for high school diploma. Get paid weekly and are fully invested when you are first hired.

    Cons

    Very hard work, driving your own car and work 6 weeks to get a weekend off. Only get 2 sick days a year and 1 personal day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to be more family oriented. Give positive reinforcement. Offer more incentives.

    Pros

    OK benefits ok pay but you have to kill yourself for 50,000.00 a year

    Cons

    Upper management is horrible they are so out of touch with their supervisors, employees and the customer. By far the most negative place I have ever worked. If you have to work for coke make sure its a union branch because you really need protection from the so-called intelligent people

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    GET OFF YOUR LAZY BUTTS AND SEE WHAT THE PEOPLE ARE HAVING TO GO THROUGH ON A DAILY BASIS SO YOU CAN AFFORD YOUR LUSH LIVING.
