I have been working at Coca-Cola Company

Pros

The Coca-Cola brand name! Fairly good benefits. Minimal supervision allows some freedom in servicing accounts. Getting a great workout and getting paid for it.

Cons

The way overtime pay is calculated is obscene. Don't go over 40 hours or you will wind up getting rewarded by receiving minimum wage for your extra effort. Conditions are really bad. Their is no air condition in many of the trucks operating in the Arizona desert which means you will be exposed to the heat for 10 to 12 hours a day. Be prepared to go to hospital for dehydration and then be written up for not staying hydrated.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take care of your employees before someone dies. Let employees have more input in situations regarding their routes. Stop all the stupid directives that seem to change by the day or week. Also, take a good look at company policies. For instance, grandchildren aren't covered under the emergency leave or funeral leave as paid, but grandparents are. Another example would be if an employee gets hurt and is off on medical leave that employee should still be able to apply for other positions in the company that the employee may be able to do. Sometimes injuries make it next to impossible to return due to the physical demands of the job. If a employee wants to apply for another position because the physical demands can no longer me met they should be allowed to do so on disability leave or not.

    I have been working at Coca-Cola Company

    Pros

    A job with no career path provided

    Cons

    No mobility, no matter how well you perform.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you would just pay your people, based on performance & not low ball like the entire industry know you do, then you would retain the best and brightest. Soon as economy turns people will leave in droves.

    I have been working at Coca-Cola Company

    Pros

    Steady pay check . Consistent to 40 hours or more. Open Floor speak your mind to a point ,but not directly to management unless asked for your advice in a group meeting . Ability to prove your worth buy hard work .Prestige is given for correct work completed and competency . Out of the weather warehouse work .Now and then 6 to 4 months time intervals Hour paid lunch party's.Free uniforms after 12 months .

    Cons

    Only a 20 to 30 cents pay raises a year that's 20% to 30% , Unless a special boost to the maximal pay raise in your field , But CCE only does it every 6 years i heard from rumors . I did get the max one year . Uneducated managers . That have taken power to control others by force ,or intimidation or by back stabbing others .Dirty environment spray paint in the air know to cause cancer . Unfair daily work percentage that is barely manageable due to managements yes to customers politics and fear from being fired .Not enough tools to go around . We need a union shop .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    make it a union shop . So the workers have day to day say , not controlled by a prime directive, or fascist Management
