    Good place to work, providing good opportunities for growth & development

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Plano, TX (US)

    ProsStrong culture of continuous improvement and good work-life balance in majority of jobs/functions. Overall, a very team-oriented environment, with hard-working people. Benefits available from day 1.

    ConsCompany does a good job in promoting the value system, but needs to be more effective in identifying and addressing behaviors that do not align with the company values. Biggest challenge going forward will be in identifying and capturing growth opportunities in a challenging, contracting industry.

    Always hiring..

    Merchandiser (Current Employee) Houston, TX (US)

    ProsThey are always hiring in my area and have good security even if you meet minimum objectives. Decent starting wage and benefits fair pay for what you work.

    ConsThey do not pay time and a half in some areas and pay the lowest end possible on mileage which is normally less than enough to cover your gas for the week. This is lowest paying soda company by quite a margin.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPromote more from within the company. Encourage your partners to seek promotions if you believe they are qualified. I've seen too many people who were good enough to merchandise for years go unrewarded while someone from a competitor came in as a salesman. Pay more out to employees mileage. These issue's are keeping the company from developing a solid core of merchandisers to help drive sales. Allow as many employees as possible to work 6 day weeks to eliminate reliance on the part timer myth.

    Great seasonal work

    Merchandiser (Current Employee) Spokane, WA (US)

    ProsLots of overtime to make a lot of extra money above the regular 40 hours a week. Use of a company vehicle for transportation during work hours.

    ConsLots of things to do in a short amount of time. A lot is expected of you but you just have to work hard and get things done.

    Account Manager

    Account Manager (Current Employee) Harvey, IL (US)

    ProsGreat people to work with. Fun environment and great recognition for top performers as well. There was also fun incentives that motivated people to perform.

    ConsPoor Mid-level managers. They lack leadership skills. It seemed like the friends of the boss or those who had been there the longest got the promotion. That does not always mean they are best for the position.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay more attention to those who go and get degrees and want to progress within the company before they leave, like I did.

    Great Experience

    Account Sales Manager (Former Employee) Somerset, KY (US)

    ProsThe money is there, you just have to go and earn it. Good salesmen will make it and move up. I loved the fact that I got to go about my day without constant supervision over my shoulder. This job offered me an excellent sales experience, and I highly recommend it for driven, motivated salesmen.

    ConsThe company is still young and has its growing pains. Because of this, upper management seems to make some questionable decisions. One that I don't understand is how they let the competitors distribute their flagship brand Dr Pepper. I understand that they have a contract that was in place before the company came to, and I understand that the cost would be high to compensate the extra volume, but the brand doesn't receive it's justice. Pepsi and Coke give DP little to no love compared to their own flagship. Not a great long term business decision...

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake decisions that will move the company forward, not hinder it.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
