    I have been working at McLane Company full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Vacation, sick and personal days. We’re almost always two people on a truck, helps the day go faster. Stay within your two hour delivery window and you’ll never hear from dispatch. Our transportation department is staffed with really good people that will listen and help if you have a problem. Starting pay is $2,000 bi-weekly. (That’s $1,000 a week)

    Cons

    You unload the whole truck with a hand truck, (between 20,000 and 40,000 lbs) with two of you working it you can do it in about 12 -16 hours. Sometimes the load isn’t that great, but you work with it. We’re a 7 day a week operation so until you get a set route you are on the “extra board”. If a driver calls off you work with his partner, extra loads, and you’re on-call the days you don’t work.

    Advice to Management

    Where’s our coffee pot?

    Decent compensation, good benefits/ 401k plan. Different shifts to fit different people's needs.

    Underapprciate their employees; treat you as a replaceable component rather then a valuable piece of their company. Reward people who work slower and that give less effort.
