    Former Employee - Senior Purchasing Specialist in Temple, TX

    I worked at McLane Company full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    *Good place to learn the fundamentals of procurement, basic logistics, and some inventory management
    *Provides exposure to big box retailers from a semi-insider perspective
    *If you need help developing a very solid work ethic, you will if you survive the introductory period
    *Good training program (30 days for new purchasing agents), experienced employees are generally willing to help newcomers

    Cons

    *Be prepared to work 50-60 hours per week, including weekends for ~$40K on salary
    *Limited opportunities for advancement; positions are often filled prior to posting/interviews being held
    *Inconsistent applicaton of rules and standards by managers and senior leaders
    *Salary increases are usually small (.5-2%), heavy reliance on challenging bonus program by management to augment salary estimates
    *Expectation that salaried employees report for work whether ill, injured, etc. Use of FMLA leave, sick time, child illness call-ins is actively discouraged and/or viewed as the making of a 'problem' employee (NB: I never used FMLA and didn't have kids at the time I worked there, just heard and observed what happened to and was said about those who did).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    *Work to eliminate favoritism
    *Open, honest communication without judgemental overtones
    *Work to eliminate the belieif in 'presenteeism' as a way to demonstrate loyalty/commitment to the company

    Recommends
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
