    I have been working at Coca-Cola Bottling Co. Consolidated part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

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

    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

    I worked at Coca-Cola Bottling Co. Consolidated full-time

    Pros

    Decent salary and bonus potential.

    Cons

    Had to use personal vehicle for business purposes. Car allowance did not come close to covering the wear and tear on my car. Management did not take concerns seriously, I was sexually harassed by my customers and was told "that's just the way they are".

    It is great weekly pay. Great benefits, great amount of hours.

    Little to no home time. Early hours, and sometimes horrible management.

    Dedicate more time to the actual employees that complete the strenuous routes..there is no other way to explain that.
