Very stressful. Non-communicative Management, poor insight to marketplace.
Supply Chain Specialist (Former Employee), MississaugaJune 5, 2014
I really enjoyed my job at Cott. I learned more than I can describe in one session regarding and packaging formats for the beverage industry. Recent turmoil has decimated management and the Canadian division has been taken over by the U.S. Massive layoffs are occurring. Some co-workers were down right lazy and played tube videos for half the day everyday – more... and all day Friday. – less

Overall a good place to work
MAINTENANCE COORDINATOR / RSO (Former Employee), Mississauga, ONAugust 26, 2013
Pros: self satisfying
Cons: hard work and long hours not always recognized
Very busy and fast pace.

I learned to juggle a lot and at the same time a multitude of tasks.

Cott Beverages a publicly owned company always made sure the managers and it's employees were safety conscious and processes were "SOX" compliant.

Co workers were all professional yet fun to work with.

Time lines when juggling a lot of different projects – more... and at times different departments

All the above – less

Hr department sucks
forklift driver (Former Employee), Mississauga Ont CanadaFebruary 25, 2013
Pros: summer monthly bbq's
Cons: short lunches, hot warehouse in summer and cold in winter
Hr department too busy in BS meeting to help employies out when they have an issue.

HR judge jury and exicutioner without hearing your case and has been bias about the situation from day one.

some co workers will help ya out others will take advantage of any situation to have you do there work for them.

Hr department is more concerned with there – more... own time off and meeting outside of location to deal with thing in house in a timely fashion.

Hot warehoues in summer and cold in Winter , bad heating and air exchange to make enviroment more comefortable for Warehouse workers. – less

not the most innovative place..can be better
sanitation (Former Employee), texasDecember 2, 2014
Pros: can be ok at times
Cons: money, benefits, hard to move up, and some other stuff..
job can be enjoyable at times, fast paced and have to learn new things really quick. Managment is not the best, many of them have a man type of mentality. Its hard to move up if your a woman no matter how hard you try. They dont give very good raises if any, because of "limited funds"; Yet they still purchased a big water company for over a billion – more... dollars. Were not asking for a huge raise, just remember whos working hard to make you that money. – less

Columbus ga Cotts Beverages needs to do better.
Worker (Former Employee), Columbus gaJune 3, 2014
Cons: doesn't believe in hiring woman's in the warehouse.
The work environment is great. If you are a permanent employee . Otherwise your just wasting your time. Their are ladies that have been with this company as a temp for 3+ year and the company won't even consider them as being a candidate for hire. What a shame. I wouldn't support or be a buyer for this company .....
