Great seasonal work

Merchandiser (Current Employee)
Spokane, WA (US)

I have been working at Dr Pepper Snapple Group full-time for more than a year

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)

I have been working at Dr Pepper Snapple Group full-time for more than a year

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)

I worked at Dr Pepper Snapple Group full-time for more than 3 years

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

Great company, great products

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Dr Pepper Snapple Group full-time

ProsGreat people work at DPS. The brands have a wonderful history and make you proud to support them. If you have a chance to work here, take it. You'll learn a lot, but don't plan on staying here forever.

ConsNearly impossible to have a future with DPS. It's like winning the lottery if you retire there. But don't worry, they won't let you.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet a strategy. You are losing in the marketplace and if you don't change something you'll continue to lose.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
