Coca Cola sales itself but somewhere along the way the core values get lost
Sales (Former Employee) – Texas – August 9, 2016
I was reading reviews and had to agree with many. I have to say that CCR was a great company who learned to focus on its shareholders, now its all about numbers and making them happy even if it means pushing products and programs that do not work for the customer and its employees being pushed to have no home and work life balance. There is little room for the small stuff in a personal life anymore. At times even employees have to question who they are trained to become ethically to make the numbers. Let us just say the money is good but you will bleed red and your managers will cut you to bleed. Advancement is the good boy system and expect to have unfair reviews and to apply for your job every few years. Management is done by fear with little appreciation. Its a company with a great mission and vision but its gotten lost along the way. I saw it happen for many, many years. I saw 15 year veterans not make the cut. Its a roller coaster. How did they get so lost along the way, Small businesses suffer the most and employees are what we called the "coke lords", force the programs and make them take the new products. Take care of your people and they will take care of you. Stop the dog and pony shows for senior levels, Don't forget the small customers and stop price gauging them. You have been known to keep employees for 20-30 years but you have been known to cut them just as quickly. As time passes it is all about those who do what they are told and don't ask questions even when its questionable. Push those numbers - right!!
Benefits, innovative market, great cutsomers
Poor vehicle and mileage compenstaion, comssion programs are inadequate or not correct, over worked, no stability in programs, takes advantage of its employees and cutsomers

Good company if you have a 4 year degree. This is NOT a company for someone trying to move up, by learning within the company, and/or putting your time in. Either be a manager, or look into another company.
Small/mediocre promotions, without a 4 year degree.
Team Lead/Machine Operator (Current Employee) – Waco, TX – August 8, 2016
Great pay and a great company to work for. I could not stay there because I am still attending college and the work hours did not work with my class schedule. They require someone to work a lot of overtime and I was not able to comply with that schedule.
Warehouse Worker (Former Employee) – Bryson City, NC – August 8, 2016
The job itself is great. However, the management and co-workers are horrible. i was a closer and was constantly left with work first shift didnt want to do. when this was brought up with management i was told to suck it up
Lab Tech (Former Employee) – Okmulgee, OK – August 6, 2016
I was harassed by a co-worker.A manager and two supervisors where notified. Only one supervisor talked to the co-worker but nothing was ever done besides that. I continued to be harassed with them knowing and other co-worker telling them, but still nothing was done. It got so bad i left the company and the co-worker that harassed me still works there.
Research Assistant (Former Employee) – Apopka, FL – August 5, 2016
I worked here during the summer as an intern and they treated me as an equal the hours were very flexible, if I needed help I felt comfortable asking anyone in the company. Overall I learned a lot and if they were hiring for another assistant I would be the first to apply.
Account Manager (Current Employee) – Capitol Heights, MD – August 1, 2016
CCR was really good company to work for- especially when it comes to getting experience in the Food/beverage industry. This is a sales based position and you will have to use any sales acumen to secure additional space in stores.
Truck Driver Class A (Current Employee) – South Brunswick – July 31, 2016
If you have urges to bytch slap stupid, loud mouth, uncaring, low class people then my advice is not go near this company. It's one thing to have a job at coke because you can't do anything else but it's another not to be humble about it and bully employees...
Merchandiser (Current Employee) – Plymouth Meeting, PA – July 27, 2016
Unpredictable work schedule/hours. Management is only out for themselves, and that is the same with co-workers. Typical day at work includes dealing with impatient customers and store management, having to wait on delivery trucks, and having to work behind your co-workers.
District Sales Manager (Former Employee) – Tampa, FL – July 27, 2016
I started my career with Coca Cola in 1995 and through hard work, dedication and learning new skills, I quickly advanced and received promotions throughout the years and had my career for 21 years with this company.
Productive and fun work place. With a stroing portfolio
Sr. Area Sales Manager (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – July 26, 2016
Lots of travel and hard work. Got to see lots of new places and meet some great people. Had the opportunity to sale some great brands and in new avenues. It was fun to watch the brands grow year over year.
Large Store Account Manager (Former Employee) – West Plains, MO – July 26, 2016
Fast work pace, great products, worked with great people, however when the privately owned was bought out by north America coca cola policies changed and it became more about the higher ups making more money .. Cutting major funds for all employees and changing policies.
Great job security
