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

    Pros

    McLane has provided for myself and my family for more than 30 years. Lots of growth within the company. Never had to worry about my paycheck bouncing, never had to worry about showing up and getting a pink slip. Many people who put in the work, and take advantage of their tuition reimbursement program have moved into leadership positions and advanced their careers. My 401K account is AMAZING. Benefits are marketable, different plans to pick from.
    Progressive vacation earnings, can cash out vacation time and get the $ too.
    Lots of celebrations surrounding food......BBQ's,

    Cons

    Summer hours can be long, have to work on the summer holidays, but you get a day in your bank to have off later.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the teammates that have been around and ask for their ideas, they have good input.

    I have been working at McLane Grocery full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The pay is decent, benefits are good, incentive is nice (if you get it), 401k is excellent

    Cons

    Supervisors are expected to work ridiculous amounts of hours. Warehouse departments are perpetually understaffed, yet supervisors are expected to run zero overtime. Management is out of touch with the current workforce.

    Advice to Management

    Set realistic expectations for supervisors and hire more of them. Supervisors should also be compensated better or paid for the excessive OT.

    I have been working at McLane Grocery full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    All benefits are standard to sub par compared to other companie. Great place to sell products that give people cancer like cigarettes and tobacco.

    Cons

    Poor management, no work life balance, no incentives. Sales people are more like accountants.

    Advice to Management

    Its not rocket science. You arent curing cancer, you are causing it. Acts like Big Brother.

    Pros

    okay benefits. 401k is pretty good

    Cons

    they over hire in the summer and then try to fire them all in the winter. the supervisors actually make less than the hourly people

    Advice to Management

    Your employees have families too.
