    I have been working at McLane Grocery full-time

    Pros

    The advantages of my company is that after your one year you have the option to make 65 to 80k

    Cons

    The dispatch supervisor don't have the respect for their drivers. Non communication is key to their management and benefits them and not the drivers

    Advice to Management

    Take a chance and let ya drivers be more aware of what's going on with their loads and what's going on and coming off the load.

    Pros

    Good benefits, pay is fair, teammates work hard do to the pay for the area. 401k is great at 2:1. Company owned by Berkshire Hathaway

    Cons

    Work life balance is non-existent. Training doesn't exist. Learn on your own. Very behind in technology.

    I worked at McLane Grocery (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    None. They say working for a Berkshire Hathaway Company is supposed to be great unless you think 1% raises are great when you work for the richest person in the world, Warren Buffet.

    Cons

    Like a cult. And a good ol boys network. Your skills will diminish by working here. The higher you go the less work you do and the more blame you can put on lower level employees. Below average pay and benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on sales and the customer and not on minor things

    I worked at McLane Grocery full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Day shift , Good Benefits , Fair pay. Great People Department. Friendly floor managers just doing their job. Good teammates in other areas of the warehouse. Dress code.

    Cons

    Negative environment in the area of Sanitation.Top heavy in management watching your every move like you were a little child. Negative co-workers who like to complain every hour of the day about management and their job but make themselves look like a role model employee in front of them. Back stabbing , bad language , bad attitudes. Turn over in this department is consistent compared to other areas.

    Advice to Management

    Let a smile and a hello be Genuine not Fake. Realize that even the bottom of your chain of workers makes a difference in success of the business. Relax a little on the spying and do something about fixing problems instead of shrugging them off . Pay attention to the turn over rate of some departments and see what can be done to fix the problem instead of ignoring things brought to your attention.

    Pros

    The money and benefits are decent but have seen better around the Denver area.

    Cons

    Beware drivers they like to run their drivers illegally. Management acts like they don't know this but they will run you to the ground.

    Advice to Management

    You have lost so many good drivers over the past year and it's because of management. Good luck with keeping good drivers around.

    Pros

    Provides a steady paycheck ......

    Cons

    As another reviewer said about the warehouse in Lakewood, WA; they hire during the summer (peak time) advertising the job openings as "regular non-temporary" when they really don't intend to keep you around past summer. There is a performance "average" you have to meet within your first three months and maintain it after that or they fire you. This is probably the reason they use when they have too many people and not enough work i.e. when summer ends. Here is what I think is going on, they hire you just before summer and use you for the 90 day probationary period just to get all the orders out on time. During this time they say the "average" doesn't matter but that's because they didn't hire you to make average but to "assist" the current group with the increased work load. This is also a good time to give the "regulars" days off or vacations while you do the work. After summer is over and there is not enough work for all the people now working there, they most likely let go of all the new people because they probably didn't meet the "average" but then again that's not really what they hired you for. All you hear everyone talking about is "average this" "average that" and everyone is out to get theirs and step over anyone that gets in the way. This does not promote the "team spirit" they boast about so much. I have worked for places like this before and it's always been a horrible place to work. Lastly, the warehouse is too packed. How are people (those not in the "good ol' boys club") supposed to make "average" when you have to wait for 5-10 minutes behind other people in aisles talking and taking their sweet time....... Bottom line don't work here.

    Pros

    Pay is like no other, and retirement plan is really great! This company takes care of its employees. If you're past or current employee and disagree, then check yourself.

    Cons

    I'm a driver and you gotta start out on extra board. It's ok but you gotta deal with different drivers attitude because you work in pairs. Get pass that and you will like what you do as long as you don't mind working. However, some drivers rather work the extra board.

    Advice to Management

    keep up the good work!
