    Pros

    Treat employees well, fun environment, smart colleagues

    Cons

    Pay is well below the competition. IT department is so off base and so much needs to be updated and expanded. 1982 called, they want that rotary dial back.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have a better incentive plan to retain valued employees. IT department is so off base and so much needs to be updated and expanded. 1982 called, they want that rotary dial back.

    Pros

    The employees are great to work with. Middle management that have been around for a while know how to work in the industry.

    Cons

    The higher up management seem to spent a lot of time looking at computer screens and running reports. They are not seen in the market much, and when they are in the market they are taken to store that have been set up for show.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make your employees feel appreciated. Be in the market more and offer guidance not demands. Give the people in the market on a daily basis the backing of the company.

    Pros

    New equipment , Tractors and Trailers some coworkers are excellent

    Cons

    Where do I start Low pay way off scale for a major beverage company. Direct supervisor is incompetent does not listen to drivers. Thinks they know everything about driving but knows nothing. Very vindictive management. Always the drivers fault even when your right your wrong. No decent driver should consider driving for this company until they clean up and train the management team

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your drivers. You need to realize what goes on out on the road, pay drivers more, because we deserve it

    Pros

    Good benefits. Fun promotions and events to be involved in. Their top brands such as Snapple are growing.

    Cons

    Negative culture. Terrible management styles with no strategic direction. Management blames employees for everything but doesn't give them the tools to succeed. Poor training. Poor career development.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care about your people more than you care about your bonus and your perception to your boss. Give your people tools to succeed.

    Former Employee - Deductions Specialist in Plano, TX (US)

    Pros

    The people working here are always friendly and helpful. Good benefits and very flexible with work schedule.

    Cons

    Trouble with supervisors and upper management. No training experience. I was a temp in CTA and I was training another temp. They don't let you have an opinion. You cannot bring new ideas to the table. Have "metrics" that do not reflect actual performance. My supervisor just made reports all day with no answers to my questions. No room for growth. If you have an opinion, it will most likely not be heard, and ignored. They pick their favorites from the team and do not understand how to manage a team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    People more open to change, and more open to opinions from the team. Interact with other departments to make it a fun working environment. Have more growth outside the department. Care about your employees instead of being a dictator.

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

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

    Pros

    Strong 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.

    Cons

    Company 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.

    Terrible Management.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Compensation and benefits were more than fair. With certain members of management - the culture was great.

    Cons

    lack of training
    expectation level did not match training level
    unprofessional management
    threats instead of coaching

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper Management needs to be more involved and know what's going on with management at each level. Branch managers/warehouse managers have made threats, stolen and driven morale in negative ways.

    Employees often don't leave their jobs but their management.
