    Pros

    Honestly, None. Independent means you are your own boss, but that is far from the truth with this company.

    Cons

    Mckee Foods expects Independent Distributors to put up a bunch of their own money to sell their products. They treat you like an employee and expect you to follow their yet do not pay you. The compensation they pay to Independent Distributors is less than any other company and they make you take 100% hit for your credits. They call and demand you to do things for retailers at your own expense. Unless you're looking to lose a whole lot of money, work a ridiculous amount of hours a day and be ordered around by the company at your own expense, do not let them talk you into be a Independent Distributor for them!

    Advice to Management

    Without your Independent Distributors, many of you would not have a job. Mckee Management is overpaid. Start making them do more to support their Distributors and maybe you'll keep qualified Independent Distributors selling Mckee's products.

    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!


  8. "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

    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

    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

    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.
