    I worked at Coca-Cola Company full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay, Great benefits.
    I got my own route pretty fast and worked that route for almost 2 years.
    Not constantly having managers breathing down your neck.
    As long as things are getting done properly and on time your fine. I usually only talked to my boss at the end of the day to check out.

    Cons

    Early hours
    Lots of summer overtime (overtime pay was nice though)

    Advice to Management

    I really would have liked to be able to write my own orders. I know more about my stores than a sales person that comes in for 30 minutes on an order day. Would have really help cut down on order errors which tick off the store and cause more work for me.
