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

    Pros

    Great atmosphere within the sales department. The product sales itself. All you have to do to succeed is work hard and execute.

    Cons

    The amount of hours is kind of ridiculous. They expect 50-60 hours. You're up early most days and done late, but that does depend on the route.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to budget for a few more account developers. Give your people more time in accounts and less time rushing throughout the day.

    I worked at Coca-Cola Bottling Co. Consolidated part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good team members to work with. Do you your job and go on to the next one assigned to you.

    Cons

    Full time employee's got a pay increase. Part time didn't. You can put as much if not more than them. Hard to get a full time job. Didn't feel it was fair on the pay. But they look at it someone else can come in take the job.Work longer hours to help cover independent insurance.Dont promote within the company. Never offered full time position. Applied for different positions but never got an offer either way.

    Advice to Management

    Treat the pay the pay scale the same for everyone. Full time has benefits, part time just has a $12.00 hour job. You can't cover your benefits hardly with that pay.

    Pros

    The hours were pretty flexible as long as you got your work done. Most of the time I was able to work independently, which was a plus for me.

    Cons

    Early starting hours, you have to get up before most of the stores open. Sometimes management doesn't seem to be on the same page so they will send you on an inefficient route.

    Advice to Management

    Plan routes so that they are most efficient.
