Good Benefits, no Work-Life Balance
Distribution Manager (Former Employee) – Dallas, TX – March 15, 2017
I worked for Coca-Cola Refreshments in Colorado and Texas for almost 4 years. While they provide wonderful benefits (401K AND pension plan), I could not handle the lack of work-life balance. Their operations require dedicated individuals who are willing to sacrifice their family and friends for the business. I worked in Production, Warehouse, and Distribution and I can vouch and say that each of these departments have crazy swings in work time - barely making 40 hours in the winter, to working over 60 hours in the summer. As a manager, I routinely worked 65-70 hours per week. My boss once told me that I was expected to work a minimum of 55 hours per week - salaried. So really not as great as it sounds. Cool company though and definitely recession-proof.
