Much better if you come from outside and live near your route

Former Employee - Account Manager in Fort Wayne, IN
Former Employee - Account Manager in Fort Wayne, IN

I worked at Coca-Cola Company full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Looks good on a resume, decent pay, district managers are good, flexible schedule (but still long hours regardless)

Cons

Long hours, pointless meetings, more of a babysitter for drivers and merchandisers than a "sales" person. Unrealistic goals, bonuses paid out by region instead of individual because they keep having "technical issues"...Runzheimer (mileage) is terrible if you have an out of town route and getting a new vehicle every five years is a wallet-killer.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

When a person moves up in the company, they should be viewed as a MORE valuable asset, not less. Give larger raises to inside people moving up instead of outside people with no real experience in the industry.

    Good company going the way of most companies now; too much work for too few people.

    Current Employee - Warehouse Supervisor

    I have been working at Coca-Cola Company full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great benfits, solid company, good salary, some opportunities for advancement if you survive the punishing amount of work.

    Cons

    Reorganizing all facilities; reducing the supervisory staff to the point that we are overwhelmed and have lost heart. We never feel good about the job when we go home after yet another 12+ hour day. Hourly employees are being made to pick up the duties that supervisors no longer have the time to do and are becoming resentful and angry about the added responsibilities without sufficient compensation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management are victims of this reorganization as well. The corporation is taking advantage of the poor economy and overworking everyone. They should know that there will be a mass exodus when the economy improves. Quality is suffering due to this current lack of sufficiently trained personnel.
