    I have been working at McLane Company full-time

    Pros

    $1000 a week minimum guaranteed pay, regional driving, days off, health benefits.

    Cons

    Certain Dispatch personel show little regard for drivers needs. $1,000 is before tax and comes with all kinds of rules you must follow to get it, and said certain dispatcher will try everything to get you out of it.

    I worked at McLane Company full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great 401k program. One of the best around. Good benefits and good hourly employees. Supervisors are pretty cool too.

    Cons

    Upper management is shady. They over hire in the summer and then find any reason to fire them in the fall. Micromanaging is a big problem too.

    Advice to Management

    Take a look at the numbers. People are leaving for a reason.
