Good learning experience
Cola Refreshments / Warehouse / Relief Driver (Current Employee) –  Cranbrook, BC8 June 2017
Look after all incoming and out going product, inventory control, loading and unloading of trucks, general clean up, set up service appointments for all equipment. The hardest part of the job is never knowing what time your product would show up from the supplier and to learn after years that there is no job security. The most enjoyable part of the job was the fellow employees and the customers you get to meet and grow a relationship with.
Cons
never knowing what hours you are working

great company
Senior Manager, Supply Chain (Current Employee) –  Brampton, ON29 May 2017
the people that work here are awesome. however, the company lacks strategic planning and too many unknowns. there is no job security and that's the reason why people come here and just want to move on to another company where they have job security.

Horrible to employees
WAREHOUSE OPERATOR (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ON29 May 2017
Ive never seen a company care so little about its work force. Management is very poor. I still know people working there who are being forced to quit because the work environment, thus coca cola will not have to pay any severence when the warehouse closes. Which will be soon i imagine.
Pros
free coke..... if you like expired coke
Cons
horrible to staff

Nice work environment
Driver Merchandiser (Former Employee) –  Lloydminster, SK24 April 2017
I liked working here. It's hard work so don't expect it not to be. The biggest problem with this company is communication. Your boss is in a different city entirely. Great hours but long. Weekends off but sometimes during the week you won't get home until late at night.
Pros
Pay- great but also well deserved
Cons
Long hours, Sometimes your on your own out there

Market Development Manager (Former Employee) –  alberta canada18 April 2017
Coca-Cola Refreshment Canada in the West is really struggling, the team are scattered and no real connection between the employee and the management.

very hostile work environment and work life balance is zero.

company doesn't care about his employee.

not a great company to work for but the name Coke may only be good on your resume
Pros
few good people
Cons
wage is below industry standard

Great Internship Experience
Intern Disitribution Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB11 April 2017
I started working as an intern in the distribution department last summer. I learned so much about day to day practical supply chain that I could link back to the theory I was learning at U of C. It was an amazing learning experience. Most of the people were friendly, and it was hardly ever boring. I would say the biggest con was disorganization at times and lack of communication between departments or shifts. Biggest pro was the flexibility - started as a summer internship but I was able to work the full year part time after my classes. Best internship, I am so thankful for my managers at Coca-Cola. They actually make interns do stuff, and make business choices and help with strategies and projects. Best entry level job to learn and grow!
Pros
Flexibility
Cons
Late hours

Could be a great Job but large geography with a small work force makes for long days and a large workload
Account Manager (Former Employee) –  Grand Falls-Windsor, NL10 April 2017
Was a great brand to represent and gave me a sense of pride to say whom I worked for. My latter years with the company were more challenging as new ownership brought on changes that were difficult in a large geography, small work force area.

A typical work day is 10 to 12 hours with only a 5 minute
commute to nearest account. Days can be longer at busy times or if you decide to stop to eat or have to "fit personal things" into your day. The job does have some flexibility to fit things like doctor appointments into the schedule but you still have the same amount of work to be done each day.

Management in my area have a large geography to cover and there was a lot of expectancy from upper management which usually leads to asking for more out of employees.

The company does offer benefits that are not as good as they were in years past or as some other companies offer. Also the pension plan is probably near the bottom of the pack IMO.

The job does have a good physical flow to it that keeps you on your toes and you meet a wide variety of people that you may not get to meet in other jobs.

The company also offers great courses in a variety of aspects pertaining to the industry (some mandatory some optional) and I have found that these courses still server me well in my life after Coca Cola (highly recommend doing most of them if given the opportunity).
Pros
Some flexability and vacation time based on years of service
Cons
Long hours, poor recognition for hard work and increasing cuts to perks

Extremely flexible hours for students
Sales Merchandiser (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON22 March 2017
I had a great lead who accommodated my semester schedules. The down side of this job is the labour aspect. You will visit 4-6 stores a day and have to merchandise their shelves. Moving skids of coke products is one of the harder things to do in a grocery store.
Pros
Paid KM / Flexible Schedule
Cons
Labour and deadlines

Merchandiser/Visual Marketing (Current Employee) –  Mississauga, ON22 February 2017
Coca Cola's Merchandisers travel from store to store stocking & building displays to represent the company. Ive learned about marketing in different aspects through building displays & how to attract customers or clients. The hours are long but management is usually flexible & there is no supervision required. The job is not completed until all the work is complete.
Pros
Good pay & no supervision
Cons
Long Hours
