    Pros

    Free drinks, great work environment. Friendly managers. I would recommend this job to anyone. It really is a great atmosphere. I also love that we have special prices and sales contest. It gives you an opportunity to shines and show your sales skills which goes noticed.

    Pretty easy job. I would say I don't like the micromanagement of the red team. Everything isn't always black and white. There's a lot of grey in the processes.

    Advice to Management

    Show there's more room to grow within the company.

    I have been working at Coca-Cola Bottling Co. Consolidated full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The pay is decent and so are the benefits. Some of the managements is easy to get a long with.

    Cons

    They do not care about your family. They want you to work 5 days 12 hours a day and then do computer work at home. Very demanding and their expectations are extreme.

    Advice to Management

    Need to give people less hours to work and less to do a day so they can do quality work not quantity. Very unsafe driving and moving as fast as you can to hurry to the next stop. Not to mention stacking all the signs and cardboard in my personal car whenever I cannot see out the back windows. Very unsafe for my children.

    Pros

    Really not any, decent technology I wish there was more to say about that but there isn't. Unfortunately no more

    Cons

    Hours, expectations are crazy high and the hours are long. 12 hour days on salary is not family friendly nor is it good for
    Morale

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees like you would your family. This is a private company that has grown into just another corporate monster. Doesn't care about customers either. Sad.

    Pros

    great benefits excellent dental plan

    Cons

    by far this is the worse job I ever had the warehouse employee make more than some of the truck drivers and better training is needed for the builders to build the pallets right and the forklift operators need more training

    Advice to Management

    better training is needed to build these pallets right so the drivers wont have to worry about losing pallets

    Pros

    No boss over your back the whole time watching your every move. A free environment. Time goes by fast. Yea

    Cons

    They have this crazy production system that makes no sense. You can be the hardest worker in the warehouse but if you don't meet production there's a chance you'll get fired.

    Advice to Management

    Re structure the production system
