    I worked at Coca-Cola Bottling Consolidated full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I was a Merchandiser for Coca-Cola. The job allows you to work independently in local grocery stores. The work is physically demanding at times, but there are also days that are quite easy. You generally work alone, although store owners/managers are periodically checking in on you. If you are lucky enough to receive a concrete route, become friends with these owners/managers, as they can make your life more difficult. Good pay, good benefits, must be a hardworker.

    Cons

    Communication lacks at times between account managers and merchandisers. The account managers are in charge of leaving build sheets for merchandisers (a drawing of a display depicting what is supposed to go where), but they often forget or choose not to. Being on call at least once a week, meaning they call you around 5:30 am telling you if you are working that day or not.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay on top of account managers in regards to communication.
