Route Driver (Former Employee) – Macomb, IL – October 19, 2017
A typical day started at 5 am and I drove route until 6 at night. I would unload by myself. It was exhausting. I tried to get a helper but Coca Cola said no. Pepsi has 2 people. The most enjoyable part was the feeling of fulfillment.
Supervisor/ Shift Lead (Former Employee) – Tullahoma, TN – October 9, 2017
I was the 2nd shift production lead. A typical day would consist of me helping anywhere I was needed. There are 5 different machines that would make the line go around and when each person would take a break I would fill in for them so we keep the line running. Also when people were absent I would fill in and do there job. I pretty much just filled in wherever i was needed .
Quality Assurance Lab Technician (Current Employee) – Speedway, IN – October 8, 2017
Constant conflict between unionized production team and non-union lab employees. Management in both departments are ineffective, next to no support on off shifts. Constant overtime to support production, which routinely fails to meet production goals. Makes it difficult to maintain a good work/life balance when you're averaging 50 hours every week. Pay gap between employees doing the same job is sizeable, so be prepared to negotiate. Benefits are good and the work in the lab is relatively easy, but the long periods of no work interspersed with intense periods of stress make this place far from ideal.
Can be fun, very nice break room, etc. w/pool table, tv's, chess board, free sodas, etc, but then they will do things like cut your hours & when you too were hired on at 40 (& the most disrespectful & non-caring) thing to me is they didn't even bother to tell us it was going to be happening?! And...it only happened to the night & weekend shift people, not the first shift people?! Seems very unfair...& looks it looks like to me/us nights & weekend people should maybe deserve a little more money, certainly not less?! Or they will give the whole call center cupcakes in appreciation, but then say they can't afford to let us have 40 hours. Save the cupcake money?
Free cookies, cupcakes, t-shirts, sodas & lunches on occasion...
But, then will cut your work hours which equals your pay & with no notice?!
Merchandiser (Current Employee) – Flint, MI – October 5, 2017
This job can be very stressful and tough for some. It takes a toll on your body and may even make you pull your hair out. I don't mind the pay, but you don't get great raises although they claim they are performance based. Management is confusing because you have four. One manages through fear and punishment and the others don't care about anything really. The job itself is self explanatory and if you're someone who doesn't mind putting in the labor and tuning out all the bs people will give, whether it'd be a supervisor or store manager, then you will be fine.
Delivering and merchandising Coca Cola products (Former Employee) – Vansant, VA – October 2, 2017
The job itself wasn't bad at all. Dealing with branch management however was a different story. Constantly had to deal with the supervisor's short comings. The guys running the routes would have to handle all customer relations that the supervisor would normally take care of, ex. closing contracts and filling out RED surveys just to name a few. The supervisor couldn't be bothered by such things because he was too busy having an affair on company time for the past 4 years.
WAREHOUSE WORKER (Former Employee) – Decatur, AL – October 1, 2017
The hardest part was the management I was under. They would have you go to the manager's house to either rake leaves, put furniture together, or clean their pool. I don't think it was a wise use of the company's money. The best part was completing your work on time.
Great company, great benefits, not so good atmosphere, based solely on the routing I had, I would still say overall I became more prompt dealing with such a world renowned brand, and extremely demanding customers. Some would argue coke is there medicine, at least one a day. The lingo of sales was put in fruition once I got here. Time=money and you can't get it back.
