Great pay overal some good people
All positions (Former Employee), Wilson, NCJuly 11, 2015
Pros: Employee events. Great pay. Busy work
Cons: Mistreatment. Management. Very hot. Lazy workers
Management needs work. Teamwork is very lacking. Its very hot in the plant and sometimes the management likes to single someone out. Its a great place to work. Its keeps you busy when you know what u need to be doing. They have some really great and sweet people out there. After working there after awhile you are treated alot different. Some employees take 1 hour breaks.

Employee (Current Employee), Grand Rapids, MIMay 6, 2015
Cott is 100% about their leadership team. People are not important. All decision's made at the top. The staff are expected to be robots and do what they are told.

Sinking Ship
Supplier Documentation Coordinator (Former Employee), ColumbusMarch 23, 2015
Pros: health insurance, 401k
Cons: unethical leadership, incompetent management
This company markets itself as a Private Label Beverage Manufacturer, but the reality is that they are struggling to regain momentum in the industry as a Co-Pack manufacturer. When I joined the team 2 years ago, they had recently acquired Cliffstar ( a juice manufacturing company). However, they terminated many employees who had the knowledge and capabilities to do the job. My heart goes out to the people who still remain and try to work through the sludge of a mess that they have on their hands. There is no organizational management, and most people have been there 18-20 years, just waiting it out until retirement. The leadership at the company is struggling with unethical and immoral practices. Unfortunately the HR Manager in Columbus was pushed into position from a Consumer Affairs and dry cleaning background, and does not have the necessary skills or training to be effective. The company paid for her to go to school and receive training...but she is an entry level beginner, at best, and does not have the background to aid the company as needed. My advice to anyone looking to work here, is get in, and get out as soon as possible. There is absolutely no room for growth or advancement, so your expectations need to be very low to succeed here. They are operating in an extremely limited environment and have not made the necessary technological advances needed to prosper in the global marketplace.

not the most innovative place..can be better
sanitation (Former Employee), texasDecember 2, 2014
Pros: can be ok at times
Cons: money, benefits, hard to move up, and some other stuff..
job can be enjoyable at times, fast paced and have to learn new things really quick. Managment is not the best, many of them have a man type of mentality. Its hard to move up if your a woman no matter how hard you try. They dont give very good raises if any, because of "limited funds"; Yet they still purchased a big water company for over a billion dollars. Were not asking for a huge raise, just remember whos working hard to make you that money.
