I work there currently and all I have to say is coke isn't it. Good salary and benefits, but badly managed by supervisors without experience.
Industrial Mechanic (Millwright) (Former Employee) – Brampton, ON – 30 September 2017
I'm a Brampton employee and a union member ( which is not an advantage if you're not a senior employee). The place had a very bad culture union is made up of all senior employees who put policies in place that are self serving to them and there alike. Not to mention the poor middle management staff made up of Supervisors with little or no experience. That are straight out of school and have no people skills or experience. And Managers that don't manage. It's a wonder how the place is still going. Between the bad supervision, the lazy employees , self serving union, the lack of training for the production teams and the people taking advantage of the overtime. I'm amazed that the place hasn't been shut down yet!. Coke was always on my bucket list of places to work for, but now that I'm here it's left a bad taste in my mouth 😥.
pay, benefits, overtime, clean facility, uniforms laundried, cafeteria, reputation biggest brand name in the world.
mangement, lazy employees, the bumping position by Union policies for senior employees across all departments, displaced from your current position, annomocity amongst the employees
Management (Former Employee) – Richmond, BC – 26 September 2017
I had high expectations for this company when i joined ... unfortunately, my expectations and pride to join this company were quickly unfounded and negated when i had to deal with different departments. from managers itself to the workers ... all i have to say is WOW and not in a good way. I cannot believe the negative culture in this place. the managers have treated their people poorly for years and the workers in return have built up a mindset to hate management. I don't blame them but based on all the 'benefits' they get ... they should be grateful. No one out there will give them what they have. They have lost lots of supervisors in the last year and they have a hard time keeping people. The senior managers care about sales (what a surprise) and no one else. Too bad, this was once a great company!
Some benefits, MSP covered
negative culture, finger pointing, carelessness, over paid hourly workers
Warehouse Supervisor (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 23 September 2017
Be very careful of working in Edmonton Coca Cola . Place is full of racism and management can not do anything infront of union. If you are not white then don’t work there . Just an advice very toxic culture.
Warehouse Labourer (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 20 September 2017
Coca-Cola is a decent company to work for. The only thing I took issue with is the warehouse hours. It’s location is in an easily accessible bus area and yet their warehouse operation shifts are either too early or too late for transit.
Director of Engineering (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 13 September 2017
Very organized entity with strong support for staff and management. Plants are unionized so it is critical to be alert when dealing with staff. Long term plan in view with flexibility to adapt to quick market changes.
Inside Sale Specialist (Former Employee) – Brampton, ON – 11 September 2017

Market Development Manager (Former Employee) – Brampton, ON – 22 August 2017
Great team culture that harbors constant mentoring for new employees. A typical day at work involves going around the territory for several sales calls. A lot can be learned from the job in terms of product and market knowledge.
Great exposure to the retail/wholesale markets and customers.
As with most CPGs, monthly targets are sometimes high
Inside Sales Specialist/Customer Service (Former Employee) – Brampton, ON – 8 August 2017
You might like this place if you are young, and caddy - too much drama. Always changed hours to suit them. Hard to keep up if you have children that are in daycare as you always have to change. Supervisors are terrible. They used to be amazing, but now don't care. They just want their numbers to look good. Monthly scorecard that you have to maintain. Good luck!!!
Truck Driver - Class 1 (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 9 July 2017
coke cola was a very good job with an excellent environment. The work was manageable, and there was a positive environment. Problems occurred when management forgoes necessary safety protocols for the sake of rushing.
Fast paced experience with an international corporation.
Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 28 June 2017
Coca Cola was an interesting and challenging place to work at. A lot was asked of the sales team ,but a lot of tools were given as well. I spent my days driving from account to account making replenishment orders, pushing new products and displays. The management team was engaging and had high expectations of their team. The hardest part of being a sales representative was hitting quotas during tight economic times, but I enjoyed working with my customers to help them grow their business despite a trendline of decline.
Merchandiser (Current Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 22 June 2017
The only thing i would say that i don't agree with in the job is how easy the sales associates get off. Unfortunately the merchandisers are the one doing the heavy lifting and hard work while the sales reap most of the benefits such as bonuses etc. Other than that the management has been very well and easy to work with.
