    Hard work and long hours.not the job for lazy people.the pay is excellent,401k is awesome,

    Advice to Management

    Turn the trucks up to 70mph which is the speed limit in most states.31years experience as a driver.a driver sometimes knows more than over educated idiots that have never been in a truck.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at McLane Foodservice.

    Interview

    Received a call to schedule an interview for the next day. Arrived early and checked in with the security guard. I had to stand on a folded up rug in the tiny glass vestibule for someone to come get me. I was taken to a tiny, dingy room with a single table. Interview was typical with 2 managers asking questions but I feel like they were trying to scare me the whole time about how much work is involved. Kept stressing about multi tasking and made is sound like a really unpleasant place. One of Managers asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up which is offensive and not very professional. They also told me there is no room for advancement unless I have a degree.
    I received a call a few days later and was offered the position. I requested .50 cents more than the starting wage because I have a lot of experience and was told they would have to send a request to the president for approval. I was already taking a 2 dollar pay cut from my last job. I waited 2 days and finally received a call advising they could not offer me the .50 cents more that I requested. HR assured me that I would receive a standard 2% raise after a year though. I got a really bad feeling from this place which is unfortunate because I had high hopes.
