Account Development Manager (Former Employee) – Springfield, VA – July 15, 2013
I enjoyed my time at Dr. Pepper Snapple Group, Inc. The typical day begin meeting in the office to discuss sales quotas and objectives. Then meeting with business owners of small/medium size companies to corporate accounts. These meeting were sales calls to improve distribution of portfilo of brands within company.
I learned the sales process as well as public relations of brands and organizations at large. The management was not the greatest, high pressure to meet and exceed sales quotas.
It's a ok kinda job. I mean the supervisor try to act like your friend but when the head boss comes around different story. Hours are crazy. But I can say everyone do work together. The pay should be more for all the work they want u to do.
A typical work day is creating a plan of execution for each store you are required to go into that day and make sure priorities are met for that day. Their is a lot to learn such as management skills, different methods to organize and prioritizes. It is very rare that you have a problem with other account managers, but it is almost a guarantee that there will be problems with the merchandisers. The hardest part of the job is separating what accounts need from what the company wants you to do. But considering everything that comes along with the job, it's actually a very good job. A lot of times management is really horrible.
Full Service Vending/Telephone Sales (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – January 26, 2016
Independent work, relaxed pace to achieve workload of 20 vending machines daily averaging between 60 -90 cases daily. Mediocre guidance and support of management. Aggressive mangers in other parts of company, not leading by example. Customer satisfaction, seeing the customer be able to enjoy the product.
Employee purchase program.
Longevity of some employees and supervisors too long
Merchandiser (Former Employee) – Maryville, MO – January 25, 2016
I'm a full-time college student, and was told this position would have flexible hours. Not only was this false, but I was frequently scheduled during classes and asked to skip classes for work. I was talked down on whenever I refused to comply with these requests. If you're looking for a solid full-time job, it's got good pay and the work is easy. If you're needing something on the side, stay away.
merchandiser (Former Employee) – Dunbar, WV – December 30, 2015
To look at this place at a glance, one would think its a wonder they get by month to month. the incredible turnover rate, the seemingly arcane ordering system, the absence of any real plan of any kind... after a short time its rather obvious whats going on here. the last thing these people want is for anyone to hang around long enough to see what is up. save yourself a headache and pass this one up. youll be better off picking up pepsi cans beside the road.
I've learned as being a utility you have just as much experience of a Lead. I learn to have more patients, communicate with operators on the line, Keep tabs more on what's going on far as with the syrup, Gallon count, How much raw material we have on the line for the run.. Its been a great experience learning & being in a major role.
Loader/Unloader (Former Employee) – Geismar, LA – December 17, 2015
My time spent at the Dr. Pepper Snapple was very fun, and quite exciting as well. I certainly enjoyed my time their, the employees all seemed to be genuinely interested in one another as well their families and the day to day hustle of life. With this environment we all coexisted and unison.
route driver (Former Employee) – McAlester, OK – December 16, 2015
Work 60 hours or more a week and get paid for 40 put more stops on you then you can handle never any help all they are concerned with is whether or not the product gets delivered no matter if your out 14 or more hours a day no structure in the company no training and no encouragement or drive to make a driver feel appreciated or want to stay by far the worst company I have ever worked for in my life wore out equipment that is constantly breaking down my advice would be to stay clear of Dr pepper snapple group.
A typical morning at Dr. Pepper involved getting up before the sun had risen. Me personally, usually maintained getting to work between 4am and 4:30 am. You could easily expect between 400-700 cases to deliver throughout the day in in any inclement weather.
