    Pros

    Yearly bonus, easy job once you are trained, can move up fairly easy if you want.

    Cons

    Inattentive supervision, lots of gossip and back-stabbing, lots of ways to get hurt if you are not careful.

    Advice to Management

    Reward the employees that actually work and get rid of the lazy ones. Watch the floor and see who is really working.

    Pros

    Set your on work schedule to a degree.

    Cons

    no vacation, retirement, health ,insurance, no benefits ..once you start making good money the company cut your area and starves you to death while treating you just like you are an employee

    Advice to Management

    quit treating sub contractors like employees before you end up in a major lawsuit

    Pros

    If you a man - you will go far, if you a woman, just go somewhere else RIGHT NOW!

    Cons

    People could only get promoted if they were sleeping with someone, completely stupid, or just totally unethical. If your family oriented, and not willing to dedicate your life to your job instead of your family, then I suggest you just pass this place over. When taking PTO they want to know why....IT"S NONE OF THEIR BUSINESS!! I was salaried and I was getting texted all the time on my days off. My boss was totally not skilled, knowledgeable, or even motivated to do his job....therefore everyone else had to carry his weight on top of their everyday activities. He was arrested multiple times, and still received pay increases for his work, while the rest of us suffered with no decent increase.

    Advice to Management

    Fire all the old guys sitting in place waiting for retirement that refuse to actually work on moving the company forward in the right direction, and maybe you would finally see that rocket ride. LOL! Hold your managers to the same high standards they expect of their employees.....old management is not skilled in current and latest technologies. Half you time at work is spent teaching them, and them getting frustrated at you for actually knowing what your doing.....believe me if your stupid and into extra marital affairs - PLEASE GO PUT IN FOR A JOB!

    Pros

    Pay and work schedule was ok.

    Cons

    Wear steel-toed shoes for the eight hours of work. Work on concrete floor with no mats. Go up concrete steps to break area. Heavy lifting. Disastrous mess when machines backed-up.

    Pros

    Weekends off, lot of paid time off

    Cons

    Have become more pushy, used to be family friendly. Now it seems they don't care about us.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the current operating system. It adds constant stress to our lives. What used to be something I loved is now just a job, and one that I hate. So many are quitting. This needs to be addressed and we need to know why this is happening.

    Pros

    Gets me out of the house.

    Cons

    Too many lazy useless people. No team work! Benefits suck! No vacation or sick time just PTO. When you use PTO you still get an attendance point.

    Advice to Management

    Should offer vacation time and sick time. If a person had PTO and calls in no point should be given.

  8. Independent distributors treated as employees without the benefits.

    Pros

    There were many in years past. None to speak of now

    Cons

    Company lets you assume all the risks of running your own business yet treats you like an employee. McKee foods strongly suggests increasing your expenses to fit their goals with little or no increase to distributors profitability. Though they hide behind a "moral code" and the face of a cute little girl, greed is the only thing that seems to drive them.

    Advice to Management

    Either allow distributors to make their own business decisions or provide relief for stale product and give benefits. I believe you are walking a thin line between sub contractor and employee

    Pros

    Benefits, company vehicle, excellent sales force and always support from the bakery

    Cons

    Distribution system sometimes can hurt our business with negative distributors. Profitability can be low for the independent distributors because company makes us put on new locations every year

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your sales reps

    Pros

    Competitive pay. Some decent people. Some training available. Room to climb up the ladder if you feel like working for it.

    Cons

    I'm a 3rd generation employee, and it just seems like the company is no where near as good as it used to be. The upper management knows nothing about what's going on. Health benefits aren't as great as other companies and are expensive for the coverage offered. People who work for raises/promotions typically don't get them, people that know someone important typically slide in the position. Very few team players on the production level.

    Advice to Management

    Run the company like the small, family business mind set it started out with and pay more attention to your employees. Work on employee moral and getting employees to work as a team.

  11. fun
