They recycle employees
Pallet Jack Operator (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXJanuary 15, 2019
Once they bring you in to work within two weeks they're firing the whole group you came in with. They'll be hiring more new people the same time as well. Place is dirty as all can be, employees always crashing into pallets busted open drinks everywhere they dont even clean it up.

Extremely productive. A bit too productive.
ORDER REPLENISHMENT MERCHANDISER (Current Employee) –  Oklahoma City, OKDecember 7, 2018
You go in around 6A, maybe earlier. Depending on the stores you get, you probably won't get out till 4P. Then you only have a certain amount of hours of free time before it's time to hit the hay to get rest for another day of work. The routes are extremely inconsistent and will never be the same as they are supposed to be.
Pros
Benefits, mileage
Cons
Physical, no free time, no fun

Hard work
Driver/Merchandiser (Former Employee) –  Dallas, TXDecember 3, 2018
Be ready to work! 50-70hours a week. Never an easy day! Tough on your body. Rain sun snow your working. Promise route but could be taking and given to someone else in a moment notice.

Coca-Cola Southwest Beverages
Class A CDL Bulk Delivery Driver (Former Employee) –  Tyler, TXNovember 20, 2018
I worked for Coca-Cola for approx 6 months as a Driver/Merchandiser, then put in for a night-time Bulk Driver position. The hours took some getting used to, but it was much easier work, only delivering pallets of product to large format stores. I worked there for just under 2 years before going elsewhere.

I worked at the Tyler, TX branch. One thing is certain, most of their small format tractors (non-tandem) need to be replaced with newer ones! Most are all more than 10-12 years old. The Dallas location always got the new rigs and we were given their old ones!
Pros
Work phone provided, decent pay/benefits, friendly environment
Cons
Equipment

No appreciation
Account Manager (Former Employee) –  Bryan, TXNovember 14, 2018
Company continuously tries to reinvent the wheel. They are never committed the direction they are going creating lots of stress, confusion, and a lot of micromanagement. Over the top micromanaging preventing sales teams from being creative and being told there is only one one of doing things. Senior leadership continues with the same approach of an autocratic management style. Does not evolve in their approach of how to manage and train its employees and really limits upward Mobility.
Pros
3 weeks vacation, 3 floating days plus 7 holidays, Full line of all other benefits offered two employees, Early start, Early finish
Cons
Too much micromanaging, No autonomy, No clear direction from senior leadership, Mismanagement from senior leadership, Continuos frontline restructuring eliminating many important decisions

Amazing place to work
Machinist/Filler Operator (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXNovember 14, 2018
I loved working at Coca Cola, my work schedule was beyond reasonable, time spent on the job was fast paced, I was given the wages to support myself and my family and I was able to get started on my $401k at a young age, the Coca Cola Company offers many other great benefits as well. working in this environment you have to have a positive attitude and possess great communication skills to get together with your co-workers and get daily tasks completed in a timely manner. If anyone is seeking employment at Coca Cola, I highly recommend it to any and everyone!!
Pros
Flexible schedules, high productivity and great communication

Fyi this is for the Channelview, TX warehouse
Inbound Truck checker (Former Employee) –  Channelview, TXNovember 3, 2018
Too many managers at this place . They tell you to do something , when you do it its wrong,even when you fallow the instructions to the dot. If some one doesn't do their job they add more work to your load. Coca cola is a good company ,but this warehouse at Channelview isn't worth it.
Pros
Good company

Apply pressure when needed.
Merchandiser (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXOctober 14, 2018
Not all, but some of the managers are a bit pushy and nitpicky. If a worker is enduring so much from X amount of people on top of working a work load, and still has the want to come in to work, should most definitely be appreciated and not nagged at.

Terrible management
Loader/order builder (Former Employee) –  Waco, TXOctober 2, 2018
The Favoirts move up and everyone else has to work twice as hard just to keep them off your back. Has many stander opporating procedures that the company expects everyone to follow but if your one of the lucky favorites or have worked there for a long period of time then u can choose to not follow them and the supervisors look the other way. Lots of alcohol abuse on and off the clock by supervisors and other members of staff. Numerous accounts of being caught drinking/smoking at the facility and if it was someone they wanted to keep then they completely bush the drug/alcohol test under the rug like it never happened and constant coming in hung over, stinking of booze

Quick hire for cdl drivers with decent background.
Driver Merchandise / Bulk Driver (Former Employee) –  Sherman, TX 75090September 3, 2018
This company is ok for single people with a cdl looking for a job immediately. Staying at this job is toxic and will make you more depressed as the days and months go by.
