Pros

The Coca-Cola brand name! Fairly good benefits. Minimal supervision allows some freedom in servicing accounts. Getting a great workout and getting paid for it.

Cons

The way overtime pay is calculated is obscene. Don't go over 40 hours or you will wind up getting rewarded by receiving minimum wage for your extra effort. Conditions are really bad. Their is no air condition in many of the trucks operating in the Arizona desert which means you will be exposed to the heat for 10 to 12 hours a day. Be prepared to go to hospital for dehydration and then be written up for not staying hydrated.

Advice to Management

Take care of your employees before someone dies. Let employees have more input in situations regarding their routes. Stop all the stupid directives that seem to change by the day or week. Also, take a good look at company policies. For instance, grandchildren aren't covered under the emergency leave or funeral leave as paid, but grandparents are. Another example would be if an employee gets hurt and is off on medical leave that employee should still be able to apply for other positions in the company that the employee may be able to do. Sometimes injuries make it next to impossible to return due to the physical demands of the job. If a employee wants to apply for another position because the physical demands can no longer me met they should be allowed to do so on disability leave or not.

    If you work hard you will be rewarded. From the merchandising position you can one of two areas. Into sales or driving + warehouse. The job has a lot of perks for not having to have a college degree and there are many ways to move up.

    Cons

    There can be very long days along with the physical rigors of the job.

    Advice to Management

    Be supportive and promote from within when the candidate shows a possibility for success.

    Pros

    benefits are good, hourly pay is just above average, hours can be long and never any chance of weekends or holidays off.

    Cons

    sometimes it would be nice if supervisors listened to advice from those beneath them. most are too busy watching their backs

    Advice to Management

    on the sales side there are way too many irons in the fire. focus on a few and do them well
