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

Pros

Freedom, decent shifts, physically demanding, benefits immediately

Cons

High turnover because of low pay. Low morale so people don't care about the job and then they wonder why stores hate them.

Advice to Management

Pay your employees more instead of spending all your money on buying new unsuccessful products. With a lower turnover rate and higher morale, you will be making more money and you won't have to hire new people. Hiring new people results n loss of sales due to orders not being put away, drug tests and background checks, and paying for training. If this company could just provide more opportunities and pay to employees, it would be a great place to work. No wonder everyone leaves for Pepsi or coke after a few months here.

    I worked at Dr Pepper Snapple Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    A pitiful paycheck, heaping ton of experience a stepping stone in the industry.

    Cons

    9-10 hours a day, 6 to 7 days a week every week= no time for family, either sleeping or working or getting ready for work. The pay is not there for the work that expected. Safety is not a primary concern, getting cases out the back door is. Dr pepper snapple group just takes from its salary employees, took away bonus, took away time and a half from its supervisors on the weekends and forces them to work it for straight pay, the hourly employees make more $ than the supervisors. Senior managers are impossible to work with, shoestring budget and expectation of middle management to make it happen.

    Advice to Management

    Pay all supervisors buy the hour, and pay the supervisors what they are worth, upper management at the plant level is grossly overpaid for what little they actually do, and your health care plan sucks for employees, I'm sure you saved alot of $ with that turd you forced down everyones throat!

    I worked at Dr Pepper Snapple Group full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great brands and production facilities. Online training,

    Cons

    Upper management does not care about employee retention.

    Advice to Management

    Work with your employees, terminating is not the only answer. Upper management should practice people management.
