    Great place to get advanced with coca cola, very good people to work with and fantastic promotion for marketing.

    Cons

    Different stores has different set up, you need to be one year with them to apply for next level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Rate of wages to be reconsider as the task is heavy lifting, pulling and shelving.

    I worked at Coca-Cola Company full-time

    Pros

    Pay was decent, benefits from day 1 and you get to tell people that you work for a well known company.

    Cons

    No work/life balance, no growth opportunities, no training, plenty of people who are willing to throw their co - workers under the bus.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Really listen to your people...

    I worked at Coca-Cola Company full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    People think you are well trained.

    Cons

    Bad leadership, most people in the company are looking for a promotion or a new job.
    Management never tries to solve problems just blame other people.
    Always excuses not to pay full bonuses.
    Questionable ethics. Was told to target areas around schools and bribe store owners with concert tickets to take products even if the company lost money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honorable. This company has lost its way.

    Pros

    Lifetime job if you are satisfied with mediocrity and just want to say you work for a Fortune 500 company.

    Cons

    No support from upper management. Coca Cola is afraid of the union and are ruled by the union.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Support your management team and stand up to the union. Stop resting on the laurels of the Coca Cola brand and name.

    I have been working at Coca-Cola Company as an intern (more than an year)

    Pros

    They give you little courses about marketing, sharepoint, excel... You have a manager who encourage you to learn more and help you with things you don't understand.

    Cons

    You usually have to start as trainee, that means you don't earn a salary. But they have compensation.s
