Advice to Management

Thank you for investing in the sales team by hiring new sales people. Take steps to increase company loyalty across the board. Increase salaries of your drivers and delivery men, they interact with our customers more than anyone else and need to be skilled at interactions in order to drive profit. Consider the differences between respective regions and have different expectations for each.The same sales cannot be expected from Downtown Chicago, and Rural Alabama. Thanks for being attentive and accessible to us.

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Coca-Cola Company full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great place to work if your into many "Team Building Exercises"
    Unless you burn the place down, you will likely not get canned.
    Resume building
    Benefits
    Vacation - 3 weeks to start
    Celebrate success

    Cons

    Hours are WAY TOO LONG for the wage. 11 - 13 hours per day, every day is normal.
    They can screw you out of a rightly earned bonus if they change your route during a trimester.
    They make commitments to employees with no intentions of keeping them
    Leadership is unrealistic on priority achievement across the board. From sustainable distribution percentages to B.D.L. prevention.
    long term self-flagellation just to make a little more money!

    Advice to Management

    WORK LIFE BALANCE IS CONSPICUOUSLY ABSENT IN THIS COMPANY!
    HIRE MORE MERCHANDISERS.
    INCENTIVIZE YOUR MERCHANDISERS WITH $$ FOR ROTATION OF PRODUCT!

    I worked at Coca-Cola Company full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    CPG is a great industry.

    Cons

    Lots of restructuring going on back then. Also, there (still) are some really, really, REALLY bad high profile managers who reward the people who they like handsomely, and treat their teams like drones. They get results, at the cost of of worker-morale. One of my former departments couldn't even hire workers because no one wanted to work for the directors/managers, no matter how much they were paid.

    Advice to Management

    Advice to HR - You need to listen to employee grievances against unethical mgmt (at ALL levels). Hiding them in other cushy jobs is just bad business ethics.
