    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!

    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.

    I have been working at McKee Foods full-time

    Pros

    As an independent as an independent distributor you're in control of how much money you make and your hours

    Cons

    Immature middle management people with no route sales experience, on a power and control trip -- not what the founder OD McKee promoted when he will live, but apparently his grandkids do not care and watch the people underneath them destroy good sales people

    Pros

    Great culture. Everyone is very nice and welcoming. My immediate boss was very nurturing and she has taught me a lot so far. The pay is great for someone just out of college with no debt.

    Cons

    I don't receive benefits because I'm an intern even though I work full time hours. I'm not eligible for PTO.

    Advice to Management

    Office some perks besides pay to interns.
