    I have been working at Dr Pepper Snapple Group full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    pay is pretty good.

    Cons

    any issue with customers gets dumped on the salesmen because it's easier to just have them take care of it, even if it is things out of their control like delivery or merchandising issues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    stop sitting in your office all day reading emails and see what the salesmen go through each day. instead of just riding along with a salesman, why not actually run the route yourself to see the challenges they go through every day. also stop doing everything the cheap way, like running your staff with the bare minimum so when one person leaves the whole apple cart is upset, and for an extended period of time because you want to save money. also stop doing everything the cheap way. we are a joke compared to coke and Pepsi, such as using cardboard boxes instead of plastic shells for 20oz and 6 pks. customers are constantly complaining about this, but it's falling on deaf ears.

    I have been working at Dr Pepper Snapple Group

    Pros

    New equipment , Tractors and Trailers some coworkers are excellent

    Cons

    Where do I start Low pay way off scale for a major beverage company. Direct supervisor is incompetent does not listen to drivers. Thinks they know everything about driving but knows nothing. Very vindictive management. Always the drivers fault even when your right your wrong. No decent driver should consider driving for this company until they clean up and train the management team

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your drivers. You need to realize what goes on out on the road, pay drivers more, because we deserve it

    I have been working at Dr Pepper Snapple Group full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good benefits. Fun promotions and events to be involved in. Their top brands such as Snapple are growing.

    Cons

    Negative culture. Terrible management styles with no strategic direction. Management blames employees for everything but doesn't give them the tools to succeed. Poor training. Poor career development.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care about your people more than you care about your bonus and your perception to your boss. Give your people tools to succeed.

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

    Pros

    Co-workers are a tight knit team. They are more than willing to help each other out when needed.

    Cons

    Pay is fairly low. There is a lack of professionalism in management. There is a lack of organization in the whole facility. Annual raises are low despite of positive gain from employee performances and sales increases.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Conduct meetings with more professionalism, Pay harder working, more efficient employees better, and build a more positive atmosphere away from the "locker room language".

    Pros

    The company values results. Period. The positive of this is that you don't have to wonder what is expected of you.

    Cons

    Declining margins and sales in the soft drink space makes the culture very lean and penny conscious at the expense of quality.

    I have been working at Dr Pepper Snapple Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    i have been working for this company for the past 4 years, and i have been promoted almost every year, but it doesn't show on the salary pay.

    Cons

    alot of driving with in your territory. if your planning to be in sales with this company, do not buy an expensive car!you will put more than the average 12-15k/miles a year on your car. they do not cover for gas nor wear and tear. Reimbursement for mileage is below government standards, the rest you have to claim in your taxes at the end of the year

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get managers who care about you and your well being and not just worrying about beating Coke and Pepsi in every store or how many cases pushed out from the warehouse.
