While sipping a chilled coke and enjoying with friends at a ‘Kirana store’ during my childhood, I never imagined being professionally associated with a brand which lets us ‘Taste the Feeling’. Being an operations enthusiast, Hindustan Coca-Cola Beverages Pvt. Ltd. gave me the perfect opportunity to experience the blend of smart and hard work which goes behind running a humongous scale of bottling operations. The workplace promoted open office culture with beautifully designed architecture showcasing Coca-Cola’s years of history.
I worked in Operations Excellence department which involved the challenging task of understanding the full-scale operation of its shipping, warehousing and production department. Interacting with blue-collar personnel and analyzing root causes of problems gave me an exposure to the real-time supply chain management system. I was encouraged when my solution on warehouse space optimization was immediately implemented, reflecting company’s active decision making.
I feel an experience like this not only enhances your learning but makes you ready for the professional life at different scales of interaction. The live experience made me believe that Coca-Cola really “Opens Happiness.”
