Field Service Technician (Former Employee) – Salisbury - England – 2 April 2018
The day would start with planning the order in which the jobs where going to be done. I learnt how to work within a team. Management was always available and supportive. A very positive European culture. The hardest part of the job where the late night call outs. I thoroughly enjoyed working for the Company and every day was a positive experience.
brought on board and lied to about potential progression. When you finally do get a chance to interview, I found that the interviewers treated temporary work staff like trash, openly flippant and disregarding, they practically sighed when I took a seat. No talking allowed during work and you take your breaks when they allow you and are timed. You can work your hardest but they'll cast you out as soon as you have one period of sickness. Highly advise staying away from working for this company.
Auditor (Former Employee) – London, Greater London – 9 February 2018
After a long tenure at CCE I was made redundant, this was a relief. Over the years the organisation had changed significantly and from an employee perspective it wasn't for the best. The things that made the firm great to work for slowly disappeared, management became controlling, agility became non-existent and the culture virtually non-existent. Despite leaving several years ago, friends that remain tell me nothing has changed. Disappointing for such a huge brand.
Apprentice (Current Employee) – Morpeth, Northumberland – 25 September 2017
The benefits, in the form of training, courses etc, are there for those willing to put the effort in. Often presented the opportunity to work in different environments and challenge myself to reach my full potential.
Share scheme is also fantastic.
Main con would be potentially long work hours/weeks, however this is purely a matter of choice.
Professional, Management Information Systems (Current Employee) – Peterborough, Cambridgeshire – 6 September 2017
The Call Centre is Peterborough is a lovely place to work, the people are very friendly and welcoming. There is however little opportunity for progression within the call centre. There are many opportunities to develop in role, but should you wish to progress in your career, you would need to relocate.
General Duties (Former Employee) – Sidcup, Greater London – 6 August 2017
I spent a productive 2 weeks at Coca Cola European Partners. I was involved with several different departments and got the opportunity to present back to the management team on health and safety issues that I identified during planned inspections. I also used the companies software systems and worked with a wide range of interesting people.
A typical day at work in Coca-Cola European Partners depends on your job role. I can confidently say that regardless of what stream you work in there is always a constructive work load to be working on.
I have had numerous roles within Coca-Cola, starting off from an Inside sales rep on a convenience coverage stream, to a On-Premise coverage stream, a short time in Quality and Development moving onto my current role as a Senior Representative. The key skills I can take away from these roles are key sales skills, negotiation, contractual knowledge, training skills, the ability to self motivate and how to delegate. Though there are many more I feel these are the best transferable skills.
Management is very strong, though not perfect Coca-Cola indefinitely have the best managements streams that I have ever worked underneath.
Relative to the workplace culture, this is an extremely diverse place to work. Equality, diversity are key when working at Coca-Cola, it is evermore important to be inclusive in any workplace.
The hardest part of my current role is Planning and Organisation the order in which you deal with the workload. Whilst this can be difficult with such high volumes of data to control, it is also the most rewarding, it poses such an extreme sense of success when I achieve my targets and exceed where possible.
As in any workplace, I am a very strong believer that you need to be part of a strong work force unit to get by efficiently, successfully and powerfully - this is the most enjoyable part of my current role. The work force hired are incredible, achievingmore... results on a single measure but also as part of a group is very rewarding.less

Warehouse Manager (Current Employee) – Edmonton, Greater London – 22 July 2017
My opinion about a typical day at work is that the business is trying to cope with a Nation Wide system migration. Departments are still learning how their area operates in this new world. I have learned develop my coaching and leadership skills. I have expanded my knowledge of the wider organisation in my current role. Senior Management where I work has changed a lot over the last couple of year, and there is a lack of clarity from the leadership team which has lead to some poor performances. Over the last couple of months, the management structure has changed again and Distribution no longer reports into the site it is geographically attached to. Due to the system migration last year the work culture has become noticeably more negative, as a blame culture is developing. The hardest part of my job is managing changes that have been enforced on the department, such as a national change of FLT fleet. The most enjoyable part of my job is seeing the employees in my department learn, adjust and start to perform well after such a big system change.
Good package, competative salary, security of a multinational organisation.
A lot of Management changes, has lead to a lack of clarity over leadership
