Order Puller/Stocker (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – November 8, 2018
Night shift manager plays favoritism in the company so if you're not their favorite you would not move up you will be voted out he also has family working there that HR just have no knowledge of so he's the boss of his own family members
Production Scheduler (Current Employee) – Waterbury, VT – November 7, 2018
A typical day at work includes meeting with project engineers, going over the schedule and adjusting as needed. Checking raw materials and upcoming trials/projects that need to be scheduled. I've learned to navigate, input and mine data on several different ERP systems. The management has been really great. it's been very much like family. One of the biggest challenges is the constant change. You must be able to be fluid. The most enjoyable part for me is the people I work with.
Very stressfull, the work culture, had learned alot, great job knowledge, experience, learn technical skills, communication skills, computer skills, collabrated with the quality, and engerring departments, had company EAP days, coffee benefits, CAFE time, excellent pay, benefits.
Merchandiser (Former Employee) – McKinleyville, CA – November 4, 2018
This job is great for staying in shape, it is competitive, fun to represent, it’s all round good hard work, you start pretty early and get off early. A fun way to earn a living. Thank you drpepper/Snapple group for being a great company to work with. Pay raises would of been nice. Overall wonderful job.
Great working environment. Ability to work from home when in town
Fraud Analyst/Investigator (Current Employee) – Plano, TX – November 1, 2018
Dr Pepper Snapple was a great company to work for. Unfortunately when Keurig purchased Dr Pepper my job was eliminated in a down-sizing move. I traveled often as a fraud investigator and the ability to work from home when in town was a great benefit. The most enjoyable part of my job was travelling the USA and being able to meet the employees at their local sales centers. A typical day could involve sixteen hours of surveillance or the typical eight hours of administrative duties. The hardest part of the job was seeing employees lose their jobs over things they could control and chose not to abide by policy.
Driver (Former Employee) – Georgia – November 1, 2018
Probably the worst job ive ever had. Driver managers are pretty much just there to write people up and complain because they are no help at all. Trucks broke down every month, and with only ONE mechanic nothing was done to fix the problem. Never any hand trucks OR pallet jacks for you to actually DELIVER MERCHANDISE.
Sr. Manager (Current Employee) – Burlington, MA – November 1, 2018
I have worked here for more than 18 months and am actively seeking other opportunities. The Appliance Product group is one of the most mismanaged group within the company. Think twice before accepting an offer with this low morale workplace. Repeated re-orgs, and change in job responsibilities, lack of communication all point to a place that you'd rather not be at.
They do have good benefits, and there may be decent groups within the company that are great to work at, but it hard to know where ?!
Free coffee, decent pay and bonus
Lack of trust in senior management, bias and skin color matters
National Account Executive (Current Employee) – New Orleans, LA – October 29, 2018
Keurig just merged DPSG so layoff are happening remote based employee some sales targets cannot be reached Great culture from Legacy DPSG Sometimes feel like you are on a island as a field based emplyee
I have been employed for thirty years at KDP. I have always been a loyal employee. and have followed company directives from my employer. It seems however in my opinion, that our focus has shifted less to the customer's needs, and more to building our portfolio. This puts a strain on customer-sales relationship. I find myself having to abandon my core beliefs and strong arm customers (my boss's words) into taking whatever we offer them. Sales is based on a lot of criteria; customer demand, demographics,etc.I understand that publicly owned companies have to keep their stock prices up, but it is still morally wrong to force feed customers products that they may or may not want. I have sold every product that we have ever produced distributed. Some successful, some total failures. The customer must gain your trust, and know that you are working in his best interest, not dictating what he must do.
Merchandiser (Seasonal) (Former Employee) – Springdale, AR – October 22, 2018
Time flies by when you’re working. Must constantly working or you’ll fall behind at the end of the day. Loads are stressful especially on weekends. Usually don’t hear from management till you slip up. Also you mileage pay doesn’t count till you get to the first store which sucks cause on the weekends, my first store was an hour away
