    I worked at Coca-Cola Bottling Co. Consolidated full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Give us a lot of autonomy. In respect of the general objective of the year of course.
    Big company so a lot of ressources. Leave place for us to make our mark.
    All good ideas are welcome.
    In the last years, took a very important and positive turn on health and safety issues.

    Cons

    Budget are very tight and not easy to achieve
    A lot of pressure around meeting financial numbers.
    A lot of hours needs to be invested to get the job done.
    Need to be creative to find solutions at low cost to meet objectives.

    Advice to Management

    Walk the talk.
    Not the same emphasis is put on the mission and values of the company depending on which department we work for. This creates distortion on the decision process. Increasing the silo effect.

    Pros

    Union , gives us good pay and benefits
    Being by your self in the trade and able to show off the Coca Cola products .

    Cons

    It’s physical hard work and most of the time will do over 8 hours per day
    Season time will see up to 18 pellets come to the store to work and being overwhelmed and most merchandisers who are new will not know how to handle it and it could not messy

    Need to have 2 merchandisers per store at the bigger accounts and that will keep the turn over rate down and need more communication between all merchandisers especially on the holidays
