    Fantastic culture that lives up to our Purpose Statement. Great pay, fantastic leadership with a solid long term business plan to grow the company. Open communication. Always encouraged to grow and develop myself with lots of opportunities available for self-paced learning. People work very hard at this company with long hours at times, but it is because we believe in our Purpose statement and leadership.

    Cons

    Some jobs have long hours, but every company has jobs like that.

    I have been working at Coca-Cola Bottling Co. Consolidated full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    - Decent pay (a bit low for the area) -Health benefits are really good - get to work independently (within the allotted time frame) - possibility to win really good prizes at sales rallies ( Flatscreen TVs, Football/Baseball tickets, iPads, etc)

    Cons

    Where do i begin... Before CCBCC took over a few yrs ago, The sales teams were much happier and much more willing to put in the work. Its been down hill ever since the change took place 1. Too much work, not enough sales people, not enough time and not enough incentive to get the job done right 2. Went from getting quarterly bonuses and incentives that were achievable to an annual bonus structure with unrealistic goals for the demographics of this market unit 3. Sales persons are salary based so no overtime for working over 10hrs a day 4. Management team is over worked and stressed. too busy doing other things to focus on their sales team 5. Employee turnover rate is insanely high. its was the complete opposite with CCR 6. Sales people are expected for cover over 70 locations all over the place. Sales route make no sense what so ever. There is no need to have 2 sales persons in the exact same area and or shopping center for that matter. Nor is their need for a daily route to cover 2 completely different areas that are more than 10-20 miles apart. 7. Sales persons have to use their own cars but the pay for mileage is laughable and almost less that half the federal rate. Sales persons drive more than 100 miles a day in some instances but only receive roughly $100-$120 for gas...ridiculious 8. Constantly out of the proper POS materials, but then we get dinged on surveys for not having proper POS 9. Constantly out of stock on many brands including Coke...How are you the coca cola company and you run out of coke???!!! Never had a constant out of stock issue with CCR 10. Too many last minute changes and requests. How can you tell someone at the end of their work day that they have to go merch a large store?? And you do not even get paid for doing someone elses job in a different department. dont even get a thank you 11. They do not care at all about our small store/independent customers. all they want is for everyone to carry everything no matter if the customers and consumers want the products instead of focusing on can and what does appeal to each demographic like CCR used to do 12. How do you have sales people but no commission, not reasonable sales incentives and only one bonus for all the selling, long hours, merching, building, assisting other teams and drivers, driving, delivering racks in our personal etc
