    Pros

    good pay and medical benefits

    Cons

    forced overtime alot, working for a company that does not care about you. all you are is a time card. if you dropped dead they would just ask for some one to replace you and care less what happened to you.

    Advice to Management

    one day all these old timers that work 7 days a week and have no home life will retire and then you wll have a hard time trying to replace them because no one with a family wants to work 7 days a week and miss out on there families.

    I have been working at Coca-Cola Bottling Co. Consolidated full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Pay and benefits is what is a plus here. Dental, health, and vision aswell as a pension is what will motivate an employee.

    Cons

    Management kills morale of work environment. The system in design is flawed. Needs to look at what transpired from CCE days, and apply it to today’s needs

    Advice to Management

    Hire new management

    Pros

    The company does make effort to show employee appreciation

    Cons

    Long list that includes:
    extremely weak leadership and management from the top down
    terrible communication from the top down that flows to departments and small teams
    process improvement is met with excuses ,arguments, and resistance
    uneducated and inexperienced people are hired on a regular basis
    far too many contract employees on staff
    extremely narrow minded, conservative , and overly religious company
    inefficiency runs rampant here
    there is no corrective action for mistakes that people make on a regular basis
    LOTS of very, very sensitive people on staff get upset and or angry when challenged calmly or even asked questions
    antiquated government style paydays. payday is twice monthly. not every other week, but 2 times per month
    PTO is not nearly enough. 10 days to start
    BLATANT displays of favoritism among team member by the supervisor
    my supervisor "works" about 30 hrs a week. She comes in between 9:45am - 10:am, takes at least 1 hour lunch, then leaves before 5

    just stay away from this company

    Pros

    Purpose statement. Stewardship activities.

    Cons

    Top heavy organization. Not much love given to the field.

    Advice to Management

    Quality over quantity. If people are done with work at 2, it's okay for them to go home. Don't focus on working your people from sun up to sun down. Worklife balance should be your priority.
