    I worked at Coca-Cola Company full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - may get off early some days
    -Resume brand name
    -base salary is okay- rumor was bonuses weren't really being given to lower management any more

    Cons

    This is a great job for you enjoy waking up and being at stores by 6 am each morning. As an Account Manager your job is to count boxes on the shelves, around the store & in the cooler, and the back. You are an Order Taker- this not sales. This is a glorified merchandiser. Coke is known in the grocery market for their horrible service and just pushing boxes.

    To be in compliance and receive the full amount of reimbursement and mileage for your vehicle it can not be more than 5 years old, so every 5 years you are expected to get a new car. Management is not on the same page and every e-mail you receive is FYI... if you want to be apart of the bigger process as an Account Manager, you are not.

    Many times you start at 6am and then have to help out other territories by sticking things on shelves (POS) and doing your merchandising duties of facing coke bottles, building displays, stacking boxes, and getting chewed out about how much Coke is disliked.

    -Talks about Chinese company buyout.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This job needs to be more like Pepsi and the Account Manager/Merchandiser job. This is not a sales job-it's a merchandising job. Need to be more efficient with making sure every store has the correct POS. Acknowledge and reward your merchandisers who are doing the hard labor while management sits in meetings drinking Diet Coke all day.

    Get in the current century and have a better hiring process- not the STAR format. How about a real question about experiences and to get to better know the job so you hire a good fit for the position. Get rid of the 48597489574895 page book and 2 month training. This is completely unnecessary anyone with a brain can figure out how to count boxes and order more. It takes away from your trainers role in their position and no sales person wants someone to follow them around for 2 months 5 days a week.

    Be clear when hiring and recruiting candidates-Ask the right questions like- do you mind moving pallets of soda to count boxes daily? Would you mind running around town and doing fire drills to make sure your stores have all the correct POS. Do you mind heavy merchandising?
