Pros

Good benefits, including 401K, pension and ability to purchase vacation

Cons

Unrealistic work expectations - lack of work/life balance. Very reactive environment with ongoing restructures and changes of management every 12-18 months. Lack of proper on-boarding processes and failure to provide training & development across the organization.

    Pros

    Working by yourself most of the time out in the field.

    Ability to express your creativity through your work.

    Can be very satisfying if you take pride in your work and are a little OCD about things.

    Most stores appreciate hard work.

    Can meet alot of people in the community you work in.

    Management is pretty cool.

    Pension after 3 years + 401k

    Benefits were nice.

    Alot of vacation time.

    Great opportunity for advancement if you are an ambitious female rather than male.

    Cons

    Some store (customer) personnel is mean to you.

    Sometimes alot is going on and workload can become overwhelming.

    Big company that rides on their name and doesn't like to pay their employees as much as they could. People will be shocked every time when they find out how much you make in most positions unless you are very high up.

    Their best employees make the same or less than their worst.

    Didn't see merit raises to retain quality employees. Early bargaining was the only way to get better pay.

    Hard to compete against women since they are the minority in a male dominated industry (how many women do you know who want to be slinging soda around?)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The Zero push is very annoying. I'm not sure why people bother with diets and zeros anyhow.

    Hang on to your good employees and pay them a decent rate so you don't lose them, they are the ones that really turn numbers and keep the company moving forward, losing them has to hurt the company tremendously.

    Pros

    As an individual I see plenty of room for growth within the company. I have started from the bottom and worked my way up to where I am at now, and there are several opportunities to come within the company.

    Cons

    Customers are at times very hard to deal with and expect more than what is reasonable because Coke is such a large and profitable company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend more on people, less on the signage.
