    I have been working at Coca-Cola Company full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    This job is good if you are a student as they will pay for your tuition as long as you get a C or above.
    If you have major responsibilities this job may work for you i.e no children, no dependents, no hectic schedule
    The people are great, and you may get a chance to work from home

    Cons

    working at Coca-Cola is good if you are in a top notch corporate position. AVOID THE CALL CENTRE. IT IS A PRISON
    If you can avoid this place, PLEASE DO. The supervisors are HORRIBLE and do not care if you have personal issues
    Very strict environment. You are always micromanaged. over 35% in the call centre is on stress leave
    After 1 year YOU WILL HATE this job. I promise. Unfortunately if you area minority, you will be at a disadvantage if you try to advance within the company
    Calls are NON STOP and you hardly get time to catch your breath
    HIGH TURNOVER RATE, most of the people you see in your training class will quit within the first 6 months to a year

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    LISTEN TO THE CALL CENTRE AGENTS and give EVERYONE a fair chance

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

    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.

    No growth potential. Completely ruled by the union in place. Management has no backbone.

    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.
