    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

    Profit sharing, great 401k benefits and some good people. Not that much positives.

    Cons

    There are a few challenges working here. You have to keep your head down and your mouth shut. People will stab you in the back because there threaten by you or you just make them look lazy. Too many people doing one job, you don't need several people to do one job, really need to do some restructuring.

    Advice to Management

    Seriously observe the office environment. Reevaluate the managers. Be sure that everyone does truly respect each others differences. Stop being stuck in the past and look to progress.
