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

    Pros

    The company is fair.
    Medical benefits are good, but could be better.

    Cons

    Just about everything else, from leaning hard on their faith to them always trying to work you 50-60 hours a week.
    The vacation time/personal time/sick time here is a joke.

    Advice to Management

    Give employees a reason to WANT to stay with your company and they will. CCE had a good work/life balance, you folks don’t and you expect far too much for the pittance starting wage.
    If you’re going to keep the starting rate so
    Low lay off on sales like CCE did every other week or so. Gives employees more “away” time and less prone to burnout.
    Revise your vacation/personal/sick time policies. People get sick, people want time with their families.
    Stop making Easter a mandatory holiday by taking one of our personal days for it, Some of us aren’t Christian and work that day anyway, give us back the day and give the option of using Easter as a day off.

    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.

    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
