Strong company with many great employees
Routing & Logistics Manager (Former Employee) –  Tampa Bay, FL28 February 2017
Learned about the bottling industry and all the different departments in it, and how they all work together. Strong upper management, with the only downside being sometimes conflicting messages from above to the masses. Those of us in middle management have done a great job of putting the pieces together and making the business as a whole run more smoothly. Long hours, but lots of fun along the way as well.
Pros
The people
Cons
Travel and being away from home

Fast paced job management lacklustre at best
Merchandiser (Former Employee) –  Marietta, OH3 February 2017
Fun job very fast paced but managment is a joke advertise 40 hours a week but if you work 1min over your 8 hour day you get jumped then depending on your rout the next day you may only get 5 hours or so so getting 40 hours is near impossible. Every time i called in with a question to my superviser i was told "i dont know youll have to ask one of the other merchandisers" very buddy buddy work place if you are friends with management you can totaly scrue up your job no prob but if anyone trys to say anything its game over for the complantent
Pros

Great job...if your young or experienced.
Merchandiser (Former Employee) –  Irving, TX20 February 2017
Start time 5 a.m. until finish, work smarter not harder and you can get adjusted to the labor. Management is hit or miss so you could be in paradise or purgatory. Workplace culture was like most jobs, politics as usual. The hardest part is easily the work/life balance. The most enjoyable part of the job would be payday.
Pros
Benefits, pay and coworkers.
Cons
Unbalanced work loads, constant changes to all facets of job.

Great Training No Advancement
Category Manager (Former Employee) –  Plano, TX19 February 2017
You will learn quite a bit in this department, they embrace new tools and processes within the Category Management discipline. However it's not unheard of people not being promoted in this department for 6-8 years. The Directors have never left the department so it's rare to get promoted to. Director. There is very little path for advancement in this group.
Pros
Great Tools and Training
Cons
No advancement

Stable work, but a bit physical and low pay.
Merchandiser (Former Employee) –  Englewood, CO 8011013 February 2017
A very simple job, a bit physical. Management and coworkers are very friendly and polite. Some of the individual store managers can
be annoying. The hardest part of the job is stocking 2 liters and 12 packs of soda. The best part of the job is going from store to store which is done in your own private vehical.
Pros
You use your own vehical each day.
Cons
Excessive and unpredictable overtime.

Merchandiser (Former Employee) –  Edwardsville, IL2 December 2016
Management doesn't care. Benefits are very good. Expect way more work than the amount your getting paid. Don't expect any raise after 90 days either. Have to clean up daily after other countries workers.some associates get special treatment, Or favored. Getting written up for others mistakes or laziness. No advancementS or promotions in the company. Never being able to plan anything. Very unorganized. Never getting days off that you request.
.

No pay, too much work, no raises, unfair bosses

A lot of hands on
Merchandiser (Former Employee) –  Riverside1 December 2016
Good hours, plenty of work, and meet new people cause your going to stores. Stocking and building soda displays can get old but if your like me and take pride in your work then you'll love it. You always have challenges and extra work due to the orders are based off sales so you just stock what the sales manager orders and can be extreme at times.
Pros
On your own, hardly any bosses hovering
Cons
A lot of bending over and being a safe worker is a plus

Under Paid, Over Work & No Feel That It Is A Career..
Loader (Former Employee) –  Norcross, GA13 March 2017
This is the worst job I had... Your working 50-60 hours a week for 400 dollars after taxes. They pay you 7 cents per case. So to get a 600 check after taxes every week you have to pull 1700 cases A DAY for 5 days. That place is a rip off!! Go in at 6pm and leave at 5am-7am. TRUE STORY
Pros
Weekly Pay...
Cons
Pay, Over Work, Worst Meetings

Customer Service Specialist (Former Employee) –  Brooklyn, NY23 November 2016
Convenient, comfortable environment. Close to transportation. Not much room for advancement opportunity. Most enjoyable part of the job was being able to maintain great, memorable relationships with customers, clientele and staff. Hardest part of the job was not being appreciated for all the extra, unpaid work you do. Management could definitely use some work.

Good schedule and decent benefits
Driver/Vendor (Current Employee) –  Jacksonville, FL16 January 2017
Work is certainly hard work, lots of lifting throughout the day but the pay is decently compensated. For the most part it's a 9 hour a day job sometimes longer which makes life at home very opportunistic however the dynamic, culture and views need work and not much room for growth. That's the most i'll say

Fair pay but that's about it
Merchandiser (Former Employee) –  South Bend, IN6 December 2016
I worked for DPSG for over two years. I gave them huge amounts of time and effort but management always expected more. Terrible work life balance, it became impossible to schedule things or do anything outside of work. Mandatory overtime kicked in often, usually 55 hours a week or well over. Management didn't care at all about me personally, (something I realized after my mom was diagnosed with cancer and I wasn't able to plan doctor's visits with her because of overtime.) If you have ideas on how to make things work smoother, management doesn't care at all and will not pay it any mind. Management allowed glaring errors from coworkers and expected their "good employees" to pick up all the slack. Needless to say, I hated it by the end. The pay is decent and good benefits, that's why I stayed so long.
Pros
pay, benefits
Cons
literally everything else

A place where you are free to work in solitude
CTA Finance Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Plano, TX4 November 2016
My day consist of entering in several payments and saving them for the auditors to process for payments. Since being at the job I have learned more about deductions, credits, debits, and balances. Management can be improved, but for the most part it is efficient. My co-workers are pleasant to be around and we work as a team. I would say the hardest part of the job is being tasked to do a last minute project as it can take some time and slow down my usual process. My most enjoyable experience at the job is conversing with the different salespeople and vendors and as a result building relations.
Pros
There is always something new to learn of you look for it
Cons
The communication is to be desired

Great company to work for if you want a career with them
Merchandiser (Former Employee) –  Orlando, FL2 December 2016
You work by yourself. You respond to your manager and they will call you if they have any questions. You drive your own vehicle and get mileage remburstment. Can be very stressful at times, but you also don't have anyone breathing down your neck since you work solo.
Pros
Good pay
Cons
You don't get a social life.
