It is what it is!

Teamleader (Former Employee)
Baldwinsville, NY

I worked at McLane full-time for more than 10 years

ProsAs long as you do your job and mind your own business, something way too many people fail to realize. Decent pay, decent benny's. promote from within.

ConsNot really a con, but it can be demanding hard work. If your going to work in a distribution center setting, you should know this going in. Overtime can be a nessesity at time, you should know and understand this as well. For those of you that complain about it, you asked for the job! No one dragged you in off the street.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
