    Pros

    People are friendly. It is a family culture. Not too busy with your work. Not too many traveling or over work. Get a C day if work at the weekend.

    Cons

    Not enough resource to complete job assignment. Sometimes, need to be self-motivated to find works to do to satisfy myself.

    Advice to Management

    A little open-minded management to share resources with your employees. Promote employees from inside which can motivate employees.

    Pros

    time off, profit sharing bonus, good benefits

    Cons

    Management needs a major overhaul, and major cuts. Why on earth do we need so many supertindents! Too good to lay anybody off instead will just cut everybodys hours back while the big wigs still get a full paycheck. Just ain't right!!!!!!!!!!!

    Advice to Management

    Work more on getting better equipment into the plants, and focus on cutting down on waste and lean more towards going green to save on costs! not cut back worker hours and keep making price increases to product. This is hurting are volume of cases!!!!

    I have been working at McKee Foods full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Competitive pay. Some decent people. Some training available. Room to climb up the ladder if you feel like working for it.

    Cons

    I'm a 3rd generation employee, and it just seems like the company is no where near as good as it used to be. The upper management knows nothing about what's going on. Health benefits aren't as great as other companies and are expensive for the coverage offered. People who work for raises/promotions typically don't get them, people that know someone important typically slide in the position. Very few team players on the production level.

    Advice to Management

    Run the company like the small, family business mind set it started out with and pay more attention to your employees. Work on employee moral and getting employees to work as a team.

    I have been working at McKee Foods full-time

    Pros

    Weekends off, lot of paid time off

    Cons

    Have become more pushy, used to be family friendly. Now it seems they don't care about us.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the current operating system. It adds constant stress to our lives. What used to be something I loved is now just a job, and one that I hate. So many are quitting. This needs to be addressed and we need to know why this is happening.

    Reward the employees that actually work and get rid of the lazy ones. Watch the floor and see who is really working.
