    I worked at McLane Foodservice full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Above average support from mid level management/direct supervisor team. Comfortable pay and excellent medical benefits from day one (drivers). 401K considerate company match, stock options, employee support line and much more.

    Cons

    As a driver you have to be in great shape and DO NOT make a required physical strenuous applied mistake. If you hurt your self (especially your back) and it causes you to be out of work, it could be a life long issue you deal with, barring you from any other physical employment and personal activities of leisure requiring physical strain.

    Advice to Management

    Though most drivers hired on know proper form and common sense, at times the "rush of service" will rush a driver right into injury. I encourage management and clients to work together to develop a conducive delivery schedule for both client and driver, in order to allow less margin of error and injury. Especially being, most deliveries are made during the night when the client is not present anyway. Some clients are present during delivery however, more delivery time seems to develop due to accommodating client business operations, thus the "rush" issue remains during the night delivery when client is absent.

    I have been working at McLane Foodservice full-time

    Pros

    The pay and benefits are decent. Working 4 10 hour shifts so you have time for school or other things on your time off.

    Cons

    There is no training schedule or regiment. No promotion inside the warehouse is ever done. Constant injuries from the excessive and strenuous pace of selection.

    Pros

    There is a solid culture that you do not find in a lot of transportation companies. It is hard to find a place where your family can come first.

    Cons

    a large amount of the business here in Arizona comes from only one brand.
