    Pros

    Good product , product that customers like, and you get to sample the products.There are a lot of bad routes but there are some good ones

    Cons

    Before you buy a route make sure you do your homework on how much the route runs.Also ask why are there so many open routes because they dont do enough business.Ask why there are so many dsrs on routes.Your expenses will be about 200 to 300 dollars a week. gas ,storage for product and truck, they required to carry a million dollar insurance policy,you need to buy a hand held computer and printer , there are a lot of little things you have to pay for

    Advice to Management

    You cant run your business same way as you do in the south as you do in the west. There is a lot more competion out here. and your expenses are lot higher

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

    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.

    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

    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

    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

    As an independent as an independent distributor you're in control of how much money you make and your hours

    Cons

    Immature middle management people with no route sales experience, on a power and control trip -- not what the founder OD McKee promoted when he will live, but apparently his grandkids do not care and watch the people underneath them destroy good sales people
