    I worked at McLane Company full-time

    Pros

    120 year company that is debt free. Pay is good depending on what department or grade. Benefits and Profit sharing are very good. President and CEO is well respected. Owned by Berkshire-Hathaway. Growing company with 20 plus Grocery Warehouses. Excellent "Open Door" Policy.

    Cons

    If you're hired from the outside it takes a while to adapt to the McLane cultural. Not nearly as family friendly as they once were. Department managers/supervisors are good people however most can't train or treat teammates with respect because Upper management is always focusing on the Key Performance Indicators.

    Advice to Management

    Be consistent in how you treat people. Walk the walk and just not talk the talk when it comes to training new teammates or cross-training teammates from one area to another. When there are problems or challenges truly address them and find out the "Root Cause".

    I worked at McLane Company full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The company is large and seems to be good about promoting from within. In the year and a half that I was there I saw lots of people move around and many move UP. While I eventually moved to a job outside of the company, I have to believe that had I stayed, I would have been given ample opportunity to grow there.

    Cons

    The position that I was in was not incredible but that's no fault of the company. I did not seek other employment within the company.

    I have been working at McLane Company full-time

    Pros

    Laid back managers, friendly co-workers, and decent benefits. The atmosphere at the McLane corporate office is pretty laid back and you can usually work at your own pace and with little supervision aka not a lot of micro-managing. The managers their trust their employees to do their job correctly and to the best of their abilities, and employees know what is expected of them.

    Cons

    The computer program they use to do their planning is a little confusing, frustrating, and outdated. Also, pretty bad medical insurance coverage (very high deductible).
