I worked at McLane Company full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Benefits standard of a large corporation, good. Stable business model

Cons

Low pay, NO time off the first year. Then after 1st year that they only give you 10 measly days until year 7! Low morale with other employees, not good at showing appreciation for hard work. Not interested in keeping employees happy, everything to them is about the numbers and making them. Frugality at its finest with no room for error. Employees are expected to work and work with little or no appreciation whatsoever. No incentive to move up or stay with the company with lack of monetary compensation or vacation time until much later. They want people who have no life outside of work and live to work for them, and expect to be thankful that they work for their "great" company and purpose.

Advice to Management

GIVE YOUR PEOPLE TIME OFF!!!! People need to spend more time with their families. They are not slaves! Pay them for the hard work they give you, tell them you appreciate them. You will not have loyal employees if you keep treating them like dirt.

    I have been working at McLane Company full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I learned a lot about a number of different jobs, learned to look after myself instead of the company. I worked at several divisions and corporate office

    Cons

    Low Pay, when you get higher pay they want to promote you where you don't want to go or fire you. Probably should have left after 5 years

    Advice to Management

    Loyalty is only a one way street. Morale is bad because I personally know a dozen people that have been screwed and so do most employees
