    I have been working at McKee Foods as a contractor

    Pros

    As long as I consistently service all my customers, I can pretty much set my own hours.

    Cons

    Products I get from McKee have shorter shelf life than my main competition, presenting challenges at times. As a 1 man contracted company, I will never be able to take week long vacations without hiring a full-time person to do everything from loading a trailer, ordering product from the bakery, selling into stores, rotating product at every stop -every visit, driving my rig ( requires a CDL for my oversized rig). Also cost of healthcare is over the top for single people in open market when you don't qualify for subsidies.

    I have been working at McKee Foods (More than 3 years)

    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

    Decent pay and hours good opportunities to move around and cross train within the company most of your supervisors are great to work with awesome HR department

    Cons

    No sick time the points system is ridiculous they expect you to come to work even if you're sick and then you still get in trouble even if you show up and have to go home

    Advice to Management

    Work out a different point system and allow sick time with out write ups or points if doctors notes are presented

    I have been working at McKee Foods full-time

    Pros

    Family-owned, family-oriented with a good emphasis on maintaining work/life balance. Also emphasis on employee health and wellness, though most programs in this area are lacking and poorly executed. Employee health clinic available either on-site or very nearby. Employees share profits annually at company discretion, but there is a five-decade continuous history of this happening.

    Cons

    Company tends to use reduced titles to keep pay down for salaried folks though the scope and impact of the work required to do certainly warrants a higher title and pay grade — seems to take a lot of time to get promoted, or being the right religion helps. Owners' religious beliefs tend to be forced onto employees, i.e. no Saturday work or business allowed; certain foods excluded from company cafeteria or reimbursement.

    Pros

    The company is privately owned, so from my job it does not seem like we live or die by the numbers. We don't have shareholders constantly wanting their returns. The work is fair, good benefits, great emphasis on health and incentives for it. I will never have to work a Saturday since they are Seventh Day Adventist company.

    Cons

    For salaried their are no clear steps to get raises or move up, but for hourly employees their are specifics to receive more pay.
