    Pros

    Steady employment...you can get diabetes at a significant discount,then seek treatment after you pay your ridiculous deductible. Good support from fellow employees though!

    Cons

    No incentives for working harder,or staying with the company long term.no concept of seniority,no possibility of advancement,extremely dangerous conditions,too many forklift accidents,don't get hurt or you'll be at fault,light duty when available comes with a cut in pay,(how supportive is that?) plan on working most holidays,and pressured into more overtime than is already built into your schedule! High turnover rate,and extremely unresponsive management. Hot in the summer & cold in the winter! (Bring your own coat!) and don't make any plans to do anything other than WORK!

    Advice to Management

    Learn to build your employees up rather than creating an adversarial relationship,and then expecting to get 100% from them!

    Pros

    Not as hard as bristol area but supervisors aren't the best. The stores are closer together and not else really

    Cons

    The job is ok but the supervisors are jus incapable of making sound and rational decision it's jus ruff to work like this

    Advice to Management

    Grow up and do your job better. Stop picking on certain people and letting others get away with way worse jus be a better person in general.

    I worked at Pepsi Bottling Ventures full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very nice corporate office. 25 cent sodas. No lack of "we are one big happy family" events. Straight forward business.

    Cons

    Holidays below average ( no day after thanksgiving, etc).
    Vacation is 15 PTO days, no sick time.
    PPO deductible is $1500, HSA deductible is $2500. If you don't submit to a blood test, and a series of "health activities" throughout the year, your premiums double.
    Jeans Friday only if you volunteer for the company.
    Benefits don't start for 60 to 90 days.
    During the interviews, they do not disclose that there is a 60 probationary period to your employment, and it's no rubber stamp, some ( but not all) managers will hold it over your head from day one. If you don't make their cut, you will be called into a meeting, your things collected and escorted from the building. If you relocated, you will have to sign a lawsuit waiver, otherwise they will demand the move money back. Prior to employment you must disclose 10 years of both employment and address history, to the day.
    Just an all around mean spirited group of people.

    Advice to Management

    None.
