Merchandiser (Current Employee) – Brampton, ON – 16 January 2017
A few days of training and they send you out on your own. Thats ok considering its not difficult to figure out what to do. No communication no set schedule no feeling of job security, feel very unappreciated as an employee. Few hours a week if any. How is anyone supposed to pay bills and live. Pay is very low for the amount of physical labour one must do. Constant turnover of merchandisers. Pepsi pays 40% higher for exact same position.
Merchandiser/Visual Marketing (Current Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 22 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.
Inside Sales Representative (Current Employee) – Brampton, ON – 30 January 2017
Working in a call Centre, there is no advancement until someone resigns, retires or a new position is opened (that's pretty rare). There is rigidity in career movement. Benefit is good. Relationships are best kept on a professional, polite, friendly but distant manner. Call centre jobs are routine. Employees are trained to do a lot of projects and then are overloaded with such projects. Politics - although discreetly hidden - play a role and could affect your job performance. Under the guise of doing special projects, there are people who tend to gang-up on others to pass the work load to others - as much as they could. You are just a number in this company.
job is repetitive, no career advancement, petty politics, etc
Order builder (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 23 December 2016
Work was guaranteed for high-performance workers. temporary employees work full-time hours but don't receive benefits until promotion based on a seniority system. Equipment desperately needed upgrades. Safety standards were poorly enforced. Quantity over quality policies. Voice pick system was so terrible it could easily lead to mental health issues. Too much back lifting necessary. Only enjoyable part of the job was the overtime cap at 11 hours a day but guaranteed 8hrs.
Merchandiser (Former Employee) – Burnaby, BC – 23 January 2017
The work was physical and you got paid for drive time, but communication with the manager was difficult at best. There were many times where I found myself waiting for an answer and not receiving one. Also found receiving if I was working or not an hour before my shift was obnoxious. Work and pay was good, management was not.
Route Process Administrator (Former Employee) – Calgary AB – 22 February 2017
Repetitive work, lots of cross training, room for growth. Learned lots about the company and there is lots of training online you can take to help you learn more about the company. Hardest part of the job was waiting for all the drivers to come in. I enjoyed the morning part of the job the most, you do all the paperwork before the drivers come in.
Route Processor/ Distribution Administrator (Former Employee) – Regina, SK – 16 January 2017
It is a great energetic company to work for, great perks, free product. Amazing staff. Fast paced but work is fun and different everyday. I liked all the contact with customers. The hardest part of the job was counting all of the coin from the vending machines

Order Builder (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 22 October 2016
Awful place to work. Management is a joke and has ridiculous expectations, you're driven into the ground day in and out with little rest or time to recover, your hours are immediately cut if you start slowing down due to injuries accumulated from the work.
It's a terrible work environment and not worth it whatsoever. Stay away.
Free pop at lunch
Poor management, random hour cuts, no communication
It was a productive and good place to work with a good pay
General Laborer (Current Employee) – Brampton, ON – 2 February 2017
It was a great workplace but I couldn't keep up with my studies and work their because of the shifts, I learned how to work at a high pace packing and delivering pallets , and how to work efficiently in getting the target that we got to aquire
Market Development Manager (Current Employee) – Brampton, ON – 13 December 2016
Coca-Cola is a great company to work for. I have gained a lot of knowledge in terms of brand marketing, RED "right execution daily" selling to new outlets and maintaining existing outlets. I currently maintain a large territory and have developed an excellent relationship with my clients.
The management team for the most part at Coca-Cola is good. My co-workers always answer the phone when I have questions or need help to do something in my territory.
The hardest part of the job I would say is communicating with the equipment managers and distribution and trying to have products or equipment delivered on time for new and existing customers.
The most enjoyable part of the job is meeting my top accounts. I have developed a great relationship with my customers to the point where I look forward to meeting them all the time.
Free lunches, dinners from my customers
Pay structure could be better for the amount of work performed
Account Manager (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 20 February 2017
Coca-Cola is a great company to work for. There are lots of opportunities to advance and there is plenty of support from upper management. The account manager position gives you lots of freedom and the ability to work within your own schedule.
SENIOR MERCHANDISER, RELIEF ACCOUNT MANAGER (Current Employee) – Lloydminster, SK – 22 August 2016
The job is incredibly challenging physically and mentally but every day is rewarding even when you do not complete all that you set out to do on that day. It is a job that must require a lot of flexibility in start and finish times as there are a lot of variables that affect your day, like, weather, vehicle breakdowns, tipped pallets of product. My co-workers and management team are the reason I work there. On those days that are hard to finish they are there to offer a word or a hand to get you through it. This job ticks all the right boxes, pay, good people, respect, rewarding work.
Senior Manager (Former Employee) – Brampton, ON – 29 November 2016
Outdated processes, manual, not quick on changes, old school and old tools. Strong presence of Union. People come and go, hard to build strong relations as salaried employees are constantly moving around.
Merchandiser-seasonal (Former Employee) – Coquitlam, BC – 31 July 2016
I was sent to different stores to put stock out, meet with managers. I found the managers exceptional and also the co-workers were all great people to work with. The challenge that I found was pulling pallets full of product around the stores as I am a smaller woman. I enjoyed working by myself and with the public setting goals for myself was a great benefit.
they gave were very encouraging to their employees
alot of product and to get put out, very physical job for a smaller woman
