    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.

    Pros

    Yearly bonus, easy job once you are trained, can move up fairly easy if you want.

    Cons

    Inattentive supervision, lots of gossip and back-stabbing, lots of ways to get hurt if you are not careful.

    Advice to Management

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

    I worked at McKee Foods full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits, PTO, Gym Membership, 401k plan, Health, Dental, and Vision insurance, Decent pay, and a simple job. OT usually available.

    Cons

    Poor Management, Late hours, repetitive, clicky, management does not listen to your problems despite having an open door policy. they will listen, but not do anything about it.

    Advice to Management

    stop being bias and listen to your employees if you want to keep them happy. i had a very poor experience working there and it's sad, because it is a great company.

    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.

    I have been working at McKee Foods full-time

    Pros

    Profit sharing, great 401k benefits and some good people. Not that much positives.

    Cons

    There are a few challenges working here. You have to keep your head down and your mouth shut. People will stab you in the back because there threaten by you or you just make them look lazy. Too many people doing one job, you don't need several people to do one job, really need to do some restructuring.

    Advice to Management

    Seriously observe the office environment. Reevaluate the managers. Be sure that everyone does truly respect each others differences. Stop being stuck in the past and look to progress.

    Pros

    Reputable company. Great pay and benefits. Very nice bonus.

    Cons

    Very unqualified management. Very hard to get promoted. Unexpected mandatory overtime which turns into regular pay after a day off later in the same week.

    Advice to Management

    Train your managers on how to deal with people instead of just paperwork.
