Pros: company car (account mgrs)
Cons: see above - too many to list
This company is probably the worst company I've ever worked for. They talk a good game about being employee oriented but everyone is just a number. I was hired on by a very knowledgeable, respectable person who gave the company 30+ years of his life and they canned him like he was yesterday's newspaper.
The management is unorganized from the top down - they would hand down information at the last minute then expect everyone to have 100% execution a day or two later. There is minimal room for advancement - in order to move up, you'll need to transfer to a different branch but don't expect much internal help to do so.
Turnaround was moderately high in the sales team - division managers, national account execs, account managers came and went like the wind and that's not even including merchandisers (some would show up and leave on their first day). Other DSD companies have good relations with their customers above store level, but not Dr Pepper - for anything to come in at store level was a fight, but mainly because service issues are so heinous, that even the best of customer relationships were stressed.
Expect minuscule annual raises (max is 3% and rarely given), long work hours (kiss your holidays goodbye), and rude customers. The starting salary is hardly anything to write home about and it should come as no surprise that DP pays the least out of the "big three" soda companies. A large part of the AM job is dependent upon merchandiser performance, but since their pay is the lowest in comparison to Coke and Pepsi, the people they find hardly do their job so much of the time is spent playing babysitter and damage control while you try to hit 10-13 accounts in a day. Just look at all the merchandiser openings they're advertising for on here and you can see what I mean.
Employee morale is super low with many employees looking for jobs elsewhere. Do yourself a favor and look elsewhere too
