I have a intelligent young manager who listens to our suggestions and appreciates our experience.
Driver/Labourer (Current Employee) – Regina Saskatchewan – 19 March 2018
I enjoy my job, duties and the customers I deal with every day. My fellow workers show treat friendship and support. We are a family environment. There is nothing my work brothers and sisters wouldn’t do for me. Just like I would help them in any way possible. I have great friends and close family ties with my coworkers.
Palletizing oper/Machine Oper/Order Builder (Current Employee) – Brampton, ON – 10 March 2018
I have started job in manufacturing department as "Temporary Worker " but I was able to get "Regular employee" after 6 months. The time frame is different for temporary employees to become "Regular employees" as it depends upon different factors. I have enjoyed working there but there is uncertainty about job due to their recent news about restructuring. The company pays good medical benefits as well as good rate .
Free soft drinks in cafeteria & time to time free samples of new products
Working in the warehouse is hard job as order building is being done by voice pick system.
Warehouse Worker (Current Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 4 March 2018
Not a good time to work here. Things constantly change never for the benefit of the employee. The company is constantly looking to cut wages and benefits. If you are in the warehouse or union employee you are nothing but a number. No accountablity for management for human rights violations. You will work for years as a temp before being hired full time, if they do hire you. They will
the job does pay well
poor employee management relations. The company gives little thought to its employees, just the bottom line.
Account Representative (Former Employee) – Brampton, ON – 22 February 2018
In short, my job consisted of driving to different accounts and placing orders for the customers through a tablet for them to receive 48 hours later. The main takeaway for me at this job was how to properly spend my time. As this job was not a 9-5 I had to plan my days out accordingly, in a way that worked for not only myself but for my customers. The hardest part of the job was spending hours every week sitting in the car/driving to accounts. Most enjoyable part of the job was building relationships with different customers in different parts of the city.
Part time Merchandiser (Current Employee) – Hamilton – 20 February 2018
I was hired on the last day of August and am still there today. I am living with my parents so I had a little extra pressure on me to keep this job. I go around to a bunch of stores and set up their products so its on the shelf and on the displays. I have been with Coke for exactly 5 months tomorrow (Feb. 21) and have been given one raise, which came way ahead of my first salary review, which was supposed to be in March. The money is quite good and the driving reimbursement is also the best I have seen. I work by myself 95% of the time, its both good and bad. I knew right away that I want to sty with Coke, but definitely not as a merchandiser, at least not in a PT role. There can be an awful lot of traveling involved with this work, that may work for some people, I like it as it helps to build your hour total. Some stores have a lot for you to do, other stores you can be finished in less than half an hour. I would like to post updates of this job every so often as things change. This is one of the most unusual jobs I have ever had. You have an opportunity to make a lot of money in less time than people at other jobs do.
Improvements opportunities are not being taken seriously
Merchandising (Former Employee) – Saskatoon, SK – 9 February 2018
There was practically no chance for advancement except if you were a woman, at least 90% of office staff was female, while all the Merchandising was done by men. Management was not very eager in improving working environment. Empty promises for promotions were a general practice to try to keep employees a little longer on the hook.
High stress, lack of clear management direction and strategic planning.
Distribution Supervisor (Former Employee) – Brampton Ontario – 4 January 2018
Within the distribution and warehouse departments, there is a lack of clear, defined direction given especially when major shifts in operations arise. A lack of coordinated, detailed training for both supervisors and hourly workers. Management goals often not achievable with the few resources given. Goals lack proper planning steps to achieve. In light of Coca-Cola being the size it is, has no formal training material available, shameful given the complexity of computer software used in day to day operations. Training done by word of mouth.
Customer Development Manager (Former Employee) – Brampton, ON – 18 December 2017
this was my favorite all time place to work as they really made sure and seemed to care that I also had time with my family. Best work/life balance I have ever had. Pay was average but work life was fun
Distribution Supervisor (Former Employee) – Brampton, ON – 23 November 2017
Coca-Cola is a global brand and in this highly competitive market they are constantly evolving & changing as per the market demand. The systems are well integrated but old & they are in the process of major upgrade. Work culture is similar to any unionized environment.
