Fast & Challenging - Prepare for Limited Work-Life Balance

If you work hard, show dedication, and strive to continuously improve yourself and those around you, you will be successful and open endless advancement or cross-promotion opportunities. Management is often fast to recognize leaders and offer further development.Field sales is competitive, and performance is often recognized and rewarded fairly. Along with working for a tier 1 company, there are lots of extra bonuses that you have access to: Events, Brand teams, Head Office exposure, opportunities to develop connections across industries, etc. Don't expect to be given anything, it needs to be earned.Unfortunately, most of these niceties are outweighed by the companies need to eliminate work-life balance. As you progress, the expectation (although not written) is that you will be constantly available. This is not a great place to work if you are looking for a 9-5 with Sat/Sun for refreshing and recuperating. This mindset is especially prominent on the sales side. You cannot "coast" in this environment and last long. Hanging up your work phone for a day is not an option, regardless if it's a long weekend or holiday.The salary for mid-level sales/sales management positions is well below the industry average. Benefits and bonuses have also been scaled back over the the years. In an industry that is relatively flat, don't bank on receiving maximum quarterly bonuses consistently. At the very least, good performance will net you a yearly cost of living increase based on a semi-annual and annual performance review.

Pros

Overall the people are generally great, opportunities for advancement if you're identified as "Hi-Po", Access to events and brands

Cons

No work life balance, pay well below industry avg.

Great Place to Work

There is lots of room for advancement. Culture is really good and everyone is supportive. Everyday is something new which makes work exciting. Good place to start out and grow.

Not the Best Place to Work

Overall, the company is decent. However, there is no room for growth & salary & benefits aren't competitive. Training and support was terrible in this role.

Inside Sales Representative

While there is much power that comes with working for a big name like Coca Cola, it’s run like the family business that it is, with not the best family dynamics. Major changes since new ownership and not for the better.As much as they say there are many opportunities for growth, there isn’t. You may be good enough to do the job while they find a candidate, but won’t hire you.If they see you’re a hard worker and competent, they’ll give you more work for the same significantly below average pay, and still not give you a promotion.Ridiculously low pay in the call Center (17-19$ per hour) makes it impossible to survive on these wages. It’s basically poverty.Lots of incompetent ppl because of the low salary, so the rest of us pick up the slack. Call Center is bottom of the barrel.Many long service employees fired for refusing vaccine.Forced back to the office even though we were working remote before Covid. Major micromanaging.

Pros

3 weeks vacation to start

Cons

Very low pay that is not competitive to the market, No opportunities for growth, the better you perform the more work they’ll give you for the same pay
