    Pros

    The pop shop being able to have point-of-sale printed daily custom printed point of sale was the only advantage

    Cons

    The Good Ol Boy system they have not strayed far from that. The HR process a joke. When your Superior is best friends or besties with HR not a whole lot of options for an employee with an issue

    Advice to Management

    Advice to CCR Great Plains is a joke overpaid management with salaries ranging from 80,000 to 150000 huge waste of money.

    I worked at Great Plains Coca-Cola full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good stepping stones to finding a real job

    Cons

    I was a merchandiser for about 3 years. All my stores liked me and told me i did a good job. The department manager, the district manager, and my direct boss told me i was the worst employee in the history of Coca Cola and didn't deserve to move up with-in the company.
          One of the stores I serviced was extremely dirty and the empolyees were very rude. I posted a negative review on yelp Anonymously. The store assumed I did it and the store manager started to threaten me. When I told the distric manager about it, he didn't care. The store kicked me out and I was suspended for being kicked out of the store. For a month I had no word from management even though I called several times a week for an update. Then I was called in for a meeting with the head of HR and he told me that "the first amendment does not cover the internet and you're not allowed to post negative reviews", I left the meeting not knowing whether I was fired or not. There was no paperwork in regards to the suspension or the meeting. It was all verbal. No paper trail.
         As a merchandiser I was told we are not allowed to take any breaks or a lunch and if we did we would be fired.
         I tried to add my same sex fiancee to my health insurance and they refused to acknowledge it and wouldn't add him to my policy. This was a few weeks before the suspension. I find it a little suspicious I was suspended so quickly after. They would not give any type of paperwork on the reason why My fiance was denied coverage with the group insurance plan.

    Advice to Management

    I have no advice.
