    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!
