Former EmployeeWorked at Ada Coca Cola Bottling Company in Ada, OK.

What I like

Friends I made while working there.

What I dislike

Too many hours for salaried employees too. Much paperwork that you can't focus on your employees under you, no support from upper managers. They kept cutting manager and increasing paperwork but expecting everything to be done. One person can only be spread so thin.

Suggestions for improvement

More support from upper management, less hours, someone to help with paperwork or getting rid of some of the non essential paperwork.

Teammate where great, the company kept cutting help which put more and more work on less and less people.
