I worked at McLane full-time for 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 Senior Management – *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
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

I have been working at McLane
Pros – Company stability
401k returns are great
Good annual bonus
Immediate teammates were great to work with. They provided the support and encouragement that management didn't provide.
Cons – Zero accountability in terms of employee performance
Uneven management: some managers micro-manage, others do relatively nothing
Structure of business units encourages short-sighted decision making in terms of IT infrastructure
Negative employee reviews and complaints are not addressed in a satisfactory matter
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
