    I worked at Coca-Cola Bottling Company United full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent pay, really good benefits, however youre always working so you wont be able to enjoy them.

    Cons

    Extremely hard physical labor, they do not pay you for overtime, however they require that you work overtime, horrible management.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees by the hour, and not by the day, thats not right, because most days are 14-16hr shifts.

    Pros

    This is a company where people come and they stay. They build careers here. Many come in at entry level jobs and work their way up to management. The pay is good and they have awesome benefits! Employees here are loyal to the company and we have pride in our products.

    Cons

    Long hours but that's to be expected at any company, especially manufacturing companies. Communication can be lacking sometimes.

    Pros

    I have really enjoyed working at this company. The stableness of the company is definitely a plus. This position also is not very stressful.

    Cons

    Dealing with customers in general can be a pain at times but that can be said about most customer service jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes it feels as though we are being micromanaged. It has made for a lack of trust and has negatively affected the overall environment. This could be worked on.
