    It's not that hard lol. Night merchandising is the way to go if you can handle working nights. No traffic, less people in the way in stores etc

    I passed you info along to my boss. He's gonna send it to Orlando Monday so they can dig up your app. I think the only work we currently have available is day work so generally like a 4-6am start and most of the guys get done 3-4pm.

    If you're in good shape, you'll make it just fine. I was working for 7up/Snapple in Nashville. I wont say it's easy work, because driver/merchandiser is labor intensive. The idea is to be efficient. 7up/Snapple I would think is easier than Coke because it isn't nearly as much product. On an average day, it would be about 200 - 400 cases. It would be about 17 to 20 stops. I wonder if Coke is around 10 stops or so

    Depends on the route but if I had to guess an average (I obviously don't know every driver in my barn so it's a guess) would also be 25-30 on rd pallet routes and 10ish on bulk.

    At that time we did, they've long since got rid of the side loaders and converted to all pup trailers. When I was working there, it was a mix. I loved the side loaders though

    Personally I would go with US Foods for the same reason
    @Cardfan89 mentioned. When I worked there we had drivers come over from Coke, but not the other way around. In my area the pay at Heartland Coca-Cola just wasn't competitive enough.

    Another good reason is the ability to transfer. If you do want to move to Florida at some point, you can easily transfer internally at US Foods and move down without having to worry about finding a job when you get there. You wouldn't be able to do that if you went to work for a regional Coca-Cola distributor based in the northeast.

    i did dr. pepper/snapple then went to sysco. I made more money at sysco but compare to the workload, dr pepper was easier. Both union, same with coke up here is union, not sure about us food. Both are hard labor. Coke would be easier to do.
