ATLANTA, Aug. 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Atlanta Coca-Cola Bottling Company is growing its team and using its trucks as a creative way to communicate the job opportunities.
As drivers deliver beverages across the southeast, recruiting decals located on Atlanta Coca-Cola delivery vehicles relay that the company is currently hiring and where to look for the open positions.
The decals on the trucks, in Atlanta and other markets, lead interested applicants to the company's website: www.CocaColaUNITED.com/careers.
The company is looking for CDL drivers, merchandisers, warehouse material handlers, as well as other positions working out of the company's metro Atlanta sales centers in College Park and Sandy Springs.
"Our trucks are already moving billboards for our brand, and we've found that this is a great opportunity for communities to know we are recruiting new employees in Atlanta," said Mike Suco, vice president of the East Region for Coca-Cola UNITED.
In late April, Birmingham, Ala.- based Coca-Cola Bottling Company UNITED acquired the franchise territory that includes Atlanta, and because of its strong customer service commitment, the company is growing its team at the Atlanta sales centers in College Park and Sandy Springs to better serve its markets.
"Our drivers are excellent ambassadors for Coca-Cola," said Victor Ragland, Atlanta division director. "The 'Now Hiring' decals have generated conversations with our drivers and potential future employees about how you can make a difference, be a part of a team, and build or further your career at Atlanta Coca-Cola."
If interested in applying for a position with Atlanta Coca-Cola Bottling Company, please visit and apply online at www.CocaColaUNITED.com/careers.
