    I worked at Dr Pepper Snapple Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Discount on product, next to NRG stadium, short work days, Monday thru Friday, Easy to get along with coworkers, early start time

    Cons

    Long work days, headset will barely work, battery will keep popping out, pallet jack will not be charged for the day,

    Advice to Management

    Please invest in the workers needs, they need new headsets and phones. Also they need the isles fixed so they won't spill they're pallet as they are coming down the isle.

    Pros

    Not a thing. Always want good worker at a cheap price then treat them like crap

    Cons

    Wages stink, need to fire all the junk employees that don't want to work which is (90%) drivers and merchandiser. Since 7up does not pay, then you get what you pay for. Treat you like a kid. No incentives to work hard.... Wow a threat of being fired does not scare me anymore...Do me a favor and fire me. There is not a negative sign for overall rating.

    Advice to Management

    Stop thinking good workers are trying to bust the Budget. If operating managers just care about the budget, then tell the office workers to get in the field and work. They are not creating any money. also Labor Day are for those that are in the Labor position in the company and not those that sit behind the desk all day. Take care of those that bust their butt and fire those that don't

    Pros

    Depends on who your boss is, but the hours are good

    Cons

    A very cheap company which they will tell you them selves. Does not support its employees at all!!! I had an employee who was threatened by a store manager with physical violence and a box cutter and no one from upper management went to talk to the store from fear that it would damage their sales moving forward.

    Advice to Management

    Put a little more effort into your own employee relationships and worry less about your bottom line or you will always have a high turn over rate

    I have been working at Dr Pepper Snapple Group full-time

    Pros

    Paid every week, traveling, not a strict environment compared to other companies.

    Cons

    Low pay, long hours, salary based pay (paid by day), no wear and tear for your car, no mileage pay really.

    Advice to Management

    Pay merchandisers better, open your hand dude.
    Pay us good by the hour so we can have a fair OT in our check.

    Pros

    They are always hiring in my area and have good security even if you meet minimum objectives. Decent starting wage and benefits fair pay for what you work.

    Cons

    They do not pay time and a half in some areas and pay the lowest end possible on mileage which is normally less than enough to cover your gas for the week. This is lowest paying soda company by quite a margin.

    Advice to Management

    Promote more from within the company. Encourage your partners to seek promotions if you believe they are qualified. I've seen too many people who were good enough to merchandise for years go unrewarded while someone from a competitor came in as a salesman. Pay more out to employees mileage. These issue's are keeping the company from developing a solid core of merchandisers to help drive sales. Allow as many employees as possible to work 6 day weeks to eliminate reliance on the part timer myth.
