    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!

    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

    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.
