Union is strong but can be worked with

Indeed featured review

I was there a short time but I enjoyed it. Well organized and well staffed. Great support from my manager and working with the union was actually good. They understood what had to be done and helped hold their members accountable.

Pros

Great management

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.

Just a number

working at the call centre is will do immense damage on your mental health. Managers are horrible and not one good one at the call centre. They are either racist, or only help people of the same culture as them. Management always looks for faults and errors and never appreciates your hard work or never compliments a job well done. All they focus on is the negative. Imagine a survey went out and the result were that employees feeling burnt out and getting anxiety over quality. Instead of making it better, they made it harder. Imagine dealing with:- quality who always finds a reason to fail your calls e.g if you do not say the customer's name in the beginning of the call or if your tone is not upbeat. Some of them are heartless and will fail 90% of the calls marked. No matter how good you are, they will find faults or a reason to fail. Not to mention, these very same quality agents were horrible at their job taking back to back calls but delights in failing us. Your job depends on quality and sales ( another headache) hence the reason for high turnover rates and employees going on stress leave.

Pros

good benefits

Cons

bad treatment and just a number

Overworked and overwhelmed

To many hires that they are aware are not going to stay as it's a stepping stone for some. Which isn't fair to the others that made it a career. They don't respect people with experience and as such made it clear by allowing millennial not work on Saturdays (as per what I witnessed with 1 employees). I could go on about other bs but that's for you to find out

Pros

Free drinks

Cons

Poor management

Excellent brands but poor upper management.

Now that it is a Family owned business they have cut too many costs and good people. No job security, everyone on front line worried when the next cuts will come.

Pros

Excellent Brands

Cons

No job security

Too many chaanges

Coca-Cola is a special employer!

I worked 42 years with Coca-Cola and they're a world class employer. This was a great opportunity for me to grow and learn, with the leader in soft drink industry.

Pros

Work hard and doors open!

Cons

None!

Good company...Flexibility Required

Being a merchandiser requires a lot of flexibility. You do have your set days to work, but might not be scheduled for all days and schedule comes out the day before. Management is helpful, but there is a lot expected of you.

High tension environment

Very polarised union environment. was kept on call 24/7 and not given a stable schedule of any kind. Money was good for a student job on the off-times, but not a good long term situation.

Good people, hard job, managed poorly over the last year

Great people to work for/with but unfortunately they make poor decisions most of the time when it comes to staffing. Most large routs should be cut in half to make it easier on the staff to manage stores.

Pros

Freedom

Cons

Very long hours
