I worked at Dr Pepper Snapple Group part-time for more than a year

Pros

The pay is good for the job. You get payed full time hours even though most times you only work 25-30 hours a week. The managers are understanding and good to work with as many of them will work just as hard as you do, they get to go home early when they finish early so they will like you if your a fast worker and reward you in suit.

Cons

The work is not easy. In order to finish your stores during peak season you will have to work fast, work hard, and even work extra hours. This is only around times like Independence day, superbowl, and other peak party times. Dealing with lazy co-workers can sour you, try to team up with someone who cares about their job as much as you do and you will be fine.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Always reward your hardest workers and dont try to be our buddies, this will only cause problems in the long run. Offer us free drinks after a long day, we know you can :)

    Pros

    Truly there were not any redeeming traits of working at this company.

    Cons

    Expectations of management team and hours out of touch with reality. Average work week is 70 hours. Company talked a lot of wonderful idas but practiced none of them.

    I have been working at Dr Pepper Snapple Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    -Compensation is above average for the work
    -Self-directed learning allows motivated employees to grow their knowledge in the job areas they want, but needs to be kept in check and standardized
    -See a strong desire from management to improve, but does not have a cohesive plan for it.

    Cons

    -Very far behind the times, just implementing 5S. While I'm not a fan of "flavor of the month" type projects in general, the company seems stuck back in the early 90s and just starting to move forward with putting an emphasis on statistical process control and continuous improvement.
    -Unions - standardized pay scales based entirely on time worked instead of pay for performance only gentrifies the employees and does not promote continuous improvement and excellence.
    -Lack of standardized procedures or training both in-plant and across the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Training - STANDARDIZE IT! I understand that the company is relatively new, having only been around for 3 years, but the culture is too old and needs to move faster. Utilize the strengths of each of the small companies and bottlers acquired over the years to improve each plant.
