    Pros

    Reputable company. Great pay and benefits. Very nice bonus.

    Cons

    Very unqualified management. Very hard to get promoted. Unexpected mandatory overtime which turns into regular pay after a day off later in the same week.

    Advice to Management

    Train your managers on how to deal with people instead of just paperwork.

    Pros

    Gets you in stores to see other companies that offer more to their Wholesale Distributor's.

    Cons

    There is no support given to WD's even though that's District Manager's job description. District Manager's are overpaid and hardly work. Honestly the District Managers I've dealt with are never available and if you do get through to them it's clear they're at home or doing some other personal errands while giving you an excuse why they are not doing their job to support you. Mckee expects you to put up all your time and money to sell their products. They pay less commission than any other company, charge 100% back to you for credits, give no warehouse allowance, you have no support whatsoever to sell their product which with hostess getting aggressive on prices the product has no value! Unless you want to spin your wheels wasting a tremendous amount of time and your own money, do not let them talk you into being a Wholesale Distributor!

    Advice to Management

    Do your job! Support your Wholesale Distributor's like you're supposed to. Read your job description and practice it. You're overpaid and do not do your job!

    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!

    Pros

    They have good pay for people without degrees and some of their supervisors are awesome and also the profit sharing is great!

    Cons

    You work almost every holiday for normal pay and also they change your schedule and don't tell you but a few days in advance.

    Advice to Management

    My advice is to choose your supervisors wisely because a lot of them play favorites and it is normally not the best people for the job
