Management is terrible
Warehouse Worker/Forklift Operator (Current Employee) –  Rapid City, SDFebruary 22, 2018
The warehouse manager didn't want anyone to get their 40 hours a week because he is salary so he thought as soon as his paperwork was done we were done as well cutting us short of the 40 hours a week.

Horrible work environment
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Minot, NDFebruary 15, 2018
The management at the Minot facility are a bunch of stuck ups. They look down upon the employees, no one is as good as them. They won't even give you a simple hello or good morning, and you will only be told of what is wrong, not what is right. The work is not that bad, but High Country is a complete joke. It's a poisonous work environment, there's a reason they are continually looking for help.

Lead Merchandiser (Former Employee) –  Vernal, UTFebruary 14, 2018
There was a very large lack of help with a very high demand. No opportunity to move up and better yourself in the company. A very lack of communication.

Not worth it. Extremely low pay, benefits suck, management sucks, and WAY too much to do.
Warehouse Worker (Former Employee) –  Hayden, COFebruary 1, 2018
Summary says it all. Too much stress, doing most of the “warehouse lead’s” job, very long hours, not enough help, too much to do, management wants impossible things, management doesn’t listen to subordinates, merchandisers don’t get their orders in until late afternoon, and pay/benefits suck.

Hayden, CO took over building orders for Vernal, UT and before that happened I was working 12 + hours almost everyday. I wouldn’t get home till 10 or usually later at night. It was a nightmare and expectations were ridiculous.

The company says they are all about “family” and blah blah blah......it’s not true....not one bit.

I wouldn’t have my worst enemy work there.

Mixed bag
Class B Delivery Driver (Former Employee) –  Hayden, COJanuary 31, 2018
High turnover rates leave it as a mixed bag. The crew I was hired into was fantastic; real “team work makes the dream work” mentality, relaxed, some of the best bosses I’ve ever had, great benefits, but super low pay that isn’t competitive to other bottling companies. Then the District Sales Manager retired and it hit the fan. A domino effect of resignations happened leaving the crew in emergency status and skeleton. Over worked and under paid, but fantastic benefits, free product, and fun environment that allows to you grow. They FINALLY fixed the pay issue within January 2018 and now it’s fantastic, just overworked still.
Pros
Free product, benefits, matching 401K
Cons
Can’t take vacations due to low staffing

Not recommended
Worker (Former Employee) –  WyomingJanuary 22, 2018
Honestly, worst company I ever worked for. Highly disorganized, completely uncompetitive pay and always crisis management. The company doesn't respond to issues until they become major problems then sound the alarm. I'd never worked for a company like this where management is so detached from the reality of day to day issues. I don't recommend this company whatsoever. I had zero formal training.
Pros
Benefits
Cons
Doesn't provide tools needed to succeed

Tough but rewarding.
Warehouse Worker, sales (Current Employee) –  Bismarck, NDDecember 15, 2017
I’ve worked in the warehouse and on the sales side. Warehouse can be boring but it’s easy work. Sales is tough because you have memorize pricing and so forth. Easy to advance if you stick around for a while. They like to promote from within.
Pros
Pay, coworkers, local managers
Cons
Some long days, corporate

Sales Route Driver (Former Employee) –  Aberdeen, SDNovember 8, 2017
Terrible company to work for. Employees are not appreciated and are given more responsibilities and no pay increase. They didn't even do reviews for raises the first year because they essentially forgot or chose not to do them. High Country took over and reallocated pay so the upper management makes even more and the guys out doing the leg work make peanuts. Would much rather have worked for Pepsi.
Pros
Insurance benefits, helped obtain CDL, customers
Cons
Management, pay, hours, other employees

Warehouse Manager (Current Employee) –  Billings, MTJuly 27, 2017
Fast paced work environment. Hard and demanding work starting at the bottom but lots of promotion from within for the hard working individual. A great company and a great brand to work for.

Look elsewhere for a job!
Not selected (Former Employee) –  Rapid City, SDOctober 27, 2015
Coca-Cola High Country's motto, "Honor God in all that we do," sounds nice, but it isn't followed. The company treats employees as dispensable; they don't care if they fire you or you quit because they will just hire someone else to do your job. They have a very high employee turn-over rate. Besides the upper-level management, very few employees have actually worked there beyond two years. Employees are either fired within the probationary period or quit before they get to the two-year mark.

Additionally, the culture is sullen and disconnected. Established employees don't engage or welcome new employees. New employees are treated as outsiders to the point of shunning. It's a very weird office atmosphere. The actual job is good, but if you are looking for a fun, engaging work environment and competitive pay and benefits, go elsewhere.

Also, they are not honest about their benefits and pay during the interview. Make sure you get the details about the benefits and pay, including future pay increases, in writing before agreeing to work for them.
Pros
Nice building.
Cons
Pay, benefits, upper management treats employees as dispensable.
