    I have been working at McKee Foods full-time

    Pros

    As an independent as an independent distributor you're in control of how much money you make and your hours

    Cons

    Immature middle management people with no route sales experience, on a power and control trip -- not what the founder OD McKee promoted when he will live, but apparently his grandkids do not care and watch the people underneath them destroy good sales people

    I have been working at McKee Foods full-time

    Pros

    Family-owned, family-oriented with a good emphasis on maintaining work/life balance. Also emphasis on employee health and wellness, though most programs in this area are lacking and poorly executed. Employee health clinic available either on-site or very nearby. Employees share profits annually at company discretion, but there is a five-decade continuous history of this happening.

    Cons

    Company tends to use reduced titles to keep pay down for salaried folks though the scope and impact of the work required to do certainly warrants a higher title and pay grade — seems to take a lot of time to get promoted, or being the right religion helps. Owners' religious beliefs tend to be forced onto employees, i.e. no Saturday work or business allowed; certain foods excluded from company cafeteria or reimbursement.

    I have been working at McKee Foods full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The company is privately owned, so from my job it does not seem like we live or die by the numbers. We don't have shareholders constantly wanting their returns. The work is fair, good benefits, great emphasis on health and incentives for it. I will never have to work a Saturday since they are Seventh Day Adventist company.

    Cons

    For salaried their are no clear steps to get raises or move up, but for hourly employees their are specifics to receive more pay.

    Pros

    Great culture. Everyone is very nice and welcoming. My immediate boss was very nurturing and she has taught me a lot so far. The pay is great for someone just out of college with no debt.

    Cons

    I don't receive benefits because I'm an intern even though I work full time hours. I'm not eligible for PTO.

    Advice to Management

    Office some perks besides pay to interns.

    Pros

    They care about people , open door policy, good benefits, helpful teammates, guaranteed Saturday's off or more likely full weekend off

    Cons

    Overtime season, worrying too much about numbers, some employees think they own the company because they are working for 20-25 years

    I have been working at McKee Foods as an intern (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great employees, culture, and values. If you're needing job stability and a company that values your work/life balance, then McKee's is probably a good fit for you.

    Cons

    The pay isn't as competitive as other places, but profit sharing makes up for that. Doesn't apply to interns though, which is understandable. McKee's isn't a good fit for someone looking for a fast-paced, rapid-growth workplace.

    Advice to Management

    I'd recommend taking more risks on a small scale. The company grows slowly and steadily, which is great, but it makes the company appear less innovative.

    I have been working at McKee Foods full-time

    Pros

    One of the better paying jobs for this location. Yearly bonus. Benefits are available to employees. Also have 401K available.

    Cons

    Would not refer refer anyone to apply. Management has no idea of all the back-stabbing and favoritism that goes on in the warehouse. Company policy book might as well be discarded. There are a lot of employees not following the policies and management does nothing about it. Used to be a family oriented business, now it is everybody for themselves. There is no preventative maintainance. There is a lot of potential for injury.

    Advice to Management

    Get up off of your chairs, get out of your offices and spend some time in the warehouse and observe what goes on out there.

    Pros

    Set your on work schedule to a degree.

    Cons

    no vacation, retirement, health ,insurance, no benefits ..once you start making good money the company cut your area and starves you to death while treating you just like you are an employee

    Advice to Management

    quit treating sub contractors like employees before you end up in a major lawsuit
