    Terrible benefits. Management team is garbage. Their culture states that they will be one way, but they operate a completely different way. Time-off plan is a joke.

    I worked at Coca-Cola Company full-time

    Pros

    A pool of very talented and dedicated employees that want to do the right thing for customers..

    Cons

    They made me so insecure in my ability to sell. They want transactional selling vs relationship building so that they can get Coke Zero in every business regardless of what works for customer

    Advice to Management

    You have people at Coke that truly love the company being treated a a commodity. The career path programs in place are a failure. People are not moving up and now are complacent.

    Pros

    Working 50-60 hrs a week without overtime pay? Avoid. You will make 40k + per year to work your tail off.

    Cons

    Equipment is 17yrs old. Some new trucks but they are hand me downs. Very hard work. I tried it for a year and mostly made 13-15. $ per hour of work.

    Find a new job

    bad management. bad planning of work schedule..Did I say bad management?

    Advice to Management

    Fire yourself and do us all a favor. Really most of the management team at my plant quit within a few of months of getting there. So I guess they do fire themselves.

    I worked at Coca-Cola Company full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Pay is decent if you're in the union.

    Cons

    There isn't enough space to convey the level of disfunction that runs this place. The management sets unrealistic goals, believes all workers are robots that don't require rest breaks, and the supervisors are in no way educated enough to enact any real change to improve the working conditions. Seriously, all the supervisors and most of middle management don't have college degrees. Its sad. I understand a college degree doesn't make someone a great supervisor, but damn, the people that are hired are not qualified and they overlook workers that know the business and can do the job.

    Advice to Management

    Hire people that want to be there. People that are knowledgeable and treat people with respect.
