    I have been working at Coca-Cola Bottling Co. Consolidated full-time

    Pros

    Weekends are mostly work free

    Cons

    Huge work load and stop count, with below average pay and no incentive to take ownership. Unless you're willing to work 60+ hours per week, with extremely little chance for advancement, this is the wrong place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more employees, spread the work out so our days are not so overloaded that we are constantly running behind. Stop acting like we should be excited about new SKUs or products, it just means more work for us with no appropriate financial compensation.

    Pros

    benefits full-time available 2 weeks vacation to start

    Cons

    Calling this a Christian Company with a purpose is simply a marketing ploy! They truly take advantage of merchandisers, 60 hour weeks. They pay Chinese overtime which means halftime and less after 40 hours. Backbreaking work. Absolutely NO HOME LIFE BALANCE. And they always expect MORE, MORE, MORE!

    Advice to Management

    Stop thinking of yourselves and how to get ahead for yourselves!
