Pros

Very open with information. They want to hear what you have to say and are dedicated to making McKee a great place to work. Compensation and benefits are competitive. There is tremendous longevity among the workforce and an opportunity for advancement, if you are willing to stick around. The team is very open to diversity and variation in thinking. The family is actively involved in the business and has the competence to perform in the positions they hold.

Cons

While the senior leaders have good intentions there are many great programs, processes and procedures developed but not being actively used and likewise, many dysfunctional programs, processes and procedures being used. Each division is a silo i.e. transportation, distribution, manufacturing and field sales and within each of those divided further within each. This causes the organization to often times work against itself.

Advice to Management

Get rid of the silos. Create one HR function, one IT function and etc. The confusion caused by the division in these functional areas causes employee dissatisfaction and the inability to get a straight answer- most often at the first line level.

    I worked at McKee Foods full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    For a truck driver it really doesn't get any better in terms of pay, benifits and time off. Their bonus program is second to none, with a safety bonus every 25k miles and a very lucrative profit share. So here's the good and the bad of this driving job: good and in my opinion the best part of the job you typically only work 3 days a week! And because you only work 3 days a week there is plenty of opportunity to make extra cash. Now the bad ( and it's really not bad it's just some people are lazy and can't get along with others ) you have to unload 2 loads of cookies a week and you run team. So there it is, was the best trucking job I ever had. I'm in management with another company now or I'd still be there!

    Cons

    There is really nothing to say here they are a great company with great benifits. If you don't mind working hard and get along with others you will really enjoy this job.

    Advice to Management

    None great group of managers there!
