Coca-Cola Refreshments was one of the best employment experiences of my life! The highest quality people to work with, a terrific work environment, combined with the cultural and environmental conscience truly set this company apart.

Before getting on my forklift, you go through a check list to make sure nothing is wrong with your forklift, which is a safety measure. Then you would get your phone and headset an give your employee I.D number. After you give the number your route for picking would start, I would list off the check digits and pick the product after all your product was picked you wrap it up and load it on the truck.

Forklift Operator (Former Employee) – Pittston, PA – October 3, 2016
My husband started here as a seasonal employee with the promise of permanent position only to be told that they no longer needed him and would call him back in November when it picked up again...they gave him no warning no heads up what so ever which I found wrong
Build up pallets to load on trucks for stores and unload trucks, every Friday I deliver syrup for fountain drinks at stores & every other Friday to Williamston and Tarboro. I travel every 3 weeks to Durham to pick up drinks in the company van. The hardest part is Mondays when me & 2 other people have to rush to build up drink loads for Monday and Tuesday. Thursday we have to build up drink loads for 2 Walmarts & a Food Lion. The most enjoyable part is the times I travel out of the warehouse and the coworkers I work with

Order Builder/Loader (Former Employee) – Lemoyne, PA – July 20, 2016
I would only recommend this job if they got rid of some of the associates they have now. I like working there but not wit the people. They constantly yell out profanity. Some associates drink alcohol and smoke pot on breaks and lunch. They operate machinery under the influence. People argue and yell at each other to the point a fight might break out. People are not held accountable for anything they do. There are no consequences for not hitting your numbers for the day. It's just a free for all in there. Now there are a few awesome employees in there but management needs to get rid of the riff raff. This could be a much better place to work. Also people are driving around on their pallet Jacks talking on cell phones and texting. Somebody will get hurt sooner or later.
awful associates. a baby sitter there vs a manager
Anything can be accomplished if you don't care who gets the credit
Southeast Regional Controller (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – June 15, 2016
The Coca-Cola Company was the most powerful Company I have ever worked for. I was blessed to catch the eye of the CFO while working in the Accounting Research Department. After putting a Polar Bear in one of his presentations my career took off. It's a story worth telling if you have the time to listen.
Good if you like working long hours and don't have a personal life.
Merchandiser (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – June 8, 2016
Good training if you are set up with the right trainer. Long hours, so don't expect to do an actual 8 hour shift. Back breaking. Little supervision which could be a good thing. There will be times when you have to service a store that has a load that day and you have to do it in two hours and also they will give you more stores even if you have 15 minutes left of your shift. Don't take the position as an extra or seasonal, because they will not tell you what you can or cannot do. They will work you as a full timer without the benefits and you will also only get 2.5 days of sick time a year.
A lot of o/t
Short breaks, Favoritism, Hardly vacation time depending on position........ No personal life, 12 to 14 hour days, No weekends at all if not full time.
Coca- Cola Refreshments was great from the beginning! Training began with the history behind Coca-Cola's success. Then went on to many activities such as team building exercises, competitive trivia, and even tastings!
50 Cents Cokes, Great training, and great people to work with.
Merchandiser (Current Employee) – Texarkana, TX – June 26, 2016
The hardest part about any job is cleaning up after other individuals that didn't do what they were suppose to. I don't have a problem with occasionally picking up the slack of others if the job is worth it. I mean the job being worth as in, employees and supervisors with good character. Also, a job that pays very well with good benefits.
It is a okay job. It is a good job to help you start driving tractor trailers but the Chinese overtime is absurd. You get paid half time instead of time and a half for every hour over 40 because you are considered salary.
Warehouse order builder (Former Employee) – Carlstadt, NJ – June 8, 2016
I typical day revolved around picking orders for multiple grocery store chains, and wrapping up the pallets and loading them on to the trucks. Their was not much to learn in regards to skills other than I learned I am able to work consistent 12 to 14 hour days on a daily basis. Management was rough on the workers with an insane 100% work quota that had to be met on a daily basis. If you were to for instance drop a pallet or had to re-wrap one you would not be able to hit your numbers. This resulted in many unnecessary injuries my fellow employees sustained by working too fast and putting themselves and the ones around them in danger. Honestly I can not see any enjoyable part of this job other than the Paycheck thanks to being in the union.
District Sales M (Former Employee) – New York, NY – September 1, 2016
Worked in Sales, this is a great company to work for. Great company culture. Great team and immediate management support and job security. Opportunity for advance is there if you apply yourself and work hard. Biggest Con is compensations does not match responsibilities.
A typical day at work is chaotic to say the least. I have learned that the utilization of time is very valuable. Management needs a lot of work and better communication. I enjoy my co-workers for the most part. The hardest part of the job is the machinery and its old age. The most enjoyable part of the job is working for a world-class brand and meeting interesting people.

Order Builder/Loader (Former Employee) – Dallas, TX – July 24, 2016
Don't Get me wrong It's a little challenging at first. But when you get the hang of it, It becomes easier. Management is ok I guess depends on which department you work in. Co-workers make work fun by racing to see who have the highest score and who build the most pallets.
