    Pros

    Co-workers are a tight knit team. They are more than willing to help each other out when needed.

    Cons

    Pay is fairly low. There is a lack of professionalism in management. There is a lack of organization in the whole facility. Annual raises are low despite of positive gain from employee performances and sales increases.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Conduct meetings with more professionalism, Pay harder working, more efficient employees better, and build a more positive atmosphere away from the "locker room language".

    Pros

    Faced with challenges each day which make you a better employee. Diverse brands. Great benefits package if you choose to enroll, available on day 1.

    Cons

    Annual performance reviews do not reflect true performance. They should establish mid-year reviews to update objectives and goals. Hard work is not always rewarded.

    Dynamic at local branch was off. Each department is isolated and there is little interaction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote employee morale. Get input from the field team.

    Pros

    Health benefits were great. They helped me get my Class B, when others wouldn't. Bulk drivers were paid very well. Better than Coke and Pepsi.

    Cons

    Had to deliver and work FoodLion stores on a side loader. Doesn't make any sense.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't hire a bunch of thugs if you want to compete with the other major beverage companies.
