    Pros

    Good money for the amount of work. Plenty of hours and overtime. The owners are great people who help anyone in need with donations of little Debbie's. Like gatlinburg tn.

    Cons

    Some departments are on mandatory 6 days a week. Benefits are slowly going downhill

    Advice to Management

    Stop micromanaging and deal with the employees yourself


  6. "Used to love it, now not so much"

    Pros

    Used to be a great place to work. Company really cared about their employees and you felt like family. They used to ask for opinions good and bad to get a realistic picture of reality in the field.

    Cons

    To many changes over the past 3 years that were not thought out enough and they were not willing to learn as you go and tweek the changes so results could be more positive. Don't get me wrong some of the changes were good and did have positive results. I don't feel they value employees opinions anymore or care about he well being of their employees.

    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

    Pros

    Company actually cares about is people, it a company value.

    Cons

    Very conservative environment which isn't necessarily a con but I think people are so worried they may offend someone they don't act like themselves.

    I have been working at McKee Foods as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    Family owned
    Not publicly traded
    Amazing Culture
    Profit-sharing bonus

    Cons

    The company is not as forward-thinking as others in its industry. Not as straight forward as I would like. After a year in my internship, my hours were cut. No heads up given and it was all to avoid having to give me insurance, which I didn't need anyhow. However I have learned some great skills that I will be able to use in my career position.

    Advice to Management

    Cast your net far and wide for talent in you office departments. There are some really talented people out there like myself who work hard and are in need of opportunity.
