    I worked at The Coca-Cola Company full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The Logistics Department was decently run and the supervisors were fair for the most part. The Products sell themselves.

    Cons

    Their HR/Hiring Department sucks. They should all be fired and replaced they do not read resumes or interview properly. They are also not centrally located to the area and not professional in their timeliness.

    Advice to Management

    Get Better Upper Management & Treat your Warehouse & Delivery Employees better. Their is definite "separate but equal" attitude between upper management & The Rank & File

    Decent pay, not bad benefits and a decent pension. The people you work with. Lots of overtime of you want it.

    Management team is always us against them. Tends to be a hostile work environment. My management team are a bunch of lairs.

    Advice to Management

    Try to treat people the way you would like to be treated. Ruling with an iron fist is not necessary.

    I have been working at The Coca-Cola Company full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    This company has very good benefits starting pay is $22.00 an hour. Three weeks vacation plus you can buy another week, with three floating holidays, six sick days and about five regular holidays. BUT because we can't keep employees because of management when someone is on vacation our if someone quits, you end up working 12/16 hour days.

    Cons

    Very unsafe work environment! No DIP CLASSES! Management disables safety systems so that they don't beep and make noise. If you say anything about safety concerns they retaliate in force against you. It is not union so if you call the HR team you WILL be retaliated against. Trucks are always out of DOT specs. Air leaks in brakes are not uncommon, out of date safety, reg stickers are common. They don't provide you... with anything reflective to keep you safe in the morning hours while it is still pitch black. Gossip and putting each other down to gain favor is encouraged. I love what I do but all levels of management does not seem to care about others well-being.

    Advice to Management

    If you don't like your job quite. Your employees are the company not your egos. Take responsibility for the mass loss of employees. At some point it's not other people who are at fault but your own leadership capabilities/skills.

    I worked at The Coca-Cola Company

    Pros

    They pay you to work for them. They offer you a lot of benefits that cost a lot of your money. You get lots of vacation time, which gives you lots of time to find a better job where the employer actually cares about there people.

    Cons

    They could care less about you and your family time. But always tell you they care, but they really don't. They want you to be available 24/7/365. But they know its illegal so they use manipulation tactics and fear of losing your job to get all they can out of you. The Little rock Ar. plant will tell you promotion and raises are in your future but that future is working for another company. not them. And management... LIES like there is no tomorrow. Don't believe the BS. Its all a lie. ALL OF IT.

    Advice to Management

    Stop promising things you don't plan on doing. Stop telling people to apply for other position to excel there career if your not going to promote them. And stop lying about why they didn't get the promotion. Because the people there talk to one another and tell the truth when management isn't hanging around the work areas.
