What is the company culture like at McLane Company Inc.? Help others make critical decisions by letting them know what it’s like to work here!

Overall compensation for your work

Surprisingly well. The company actually is competitive and some times leads in compensation.

Environmental Friendliness

Could be better

Work-Life Balance

This can be one of worst parts about Mclane. But it's to expected with this industry. thanks

Job Security

Show up to work on time and everyday. Have a good attitude and you won't lose your job.

Challenging Work

I can't state this enough. This job is hard, physical, and sometimes stressful.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Warehouse space is limited. I understand this. But as a company owned by one of the richest men in the world and we can't expand our building. Instead we will add more concepts and make it almost impossible to work safely and efficient.

What I like about the company

The people and the opportunity to advance my career. But don't be mistaken I had to earn my promotion. It was given to me.

What I dislike about the company

To make changes to somethings you have to go through so many levels of management.

Company Culture

Very old school. Make a big show about bringing the company into the future but don’t allow any balance for employees

Gender Equality

We don’t even have maternity leave - women are an afterthought.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Most the staff is about to retire.

Overall compensation for your work

Not competitive. Everyone comes gets the experience and leaves due to horrible raises.

Office / Work Environment

Sterile office. Old chairs/desks/cubes

Work-Life Balance

You have a laptop and a phone but can’t work from home. Sick kid? Husband in the hospital? Well you better use that vacation because you can’t work from home- unless they want you to take your computer home at night and work more

What I like about the company

Company Culture

Contant backstabbing from co-managers. Will throw you under the bus instead of working with you to resolve daily issues.

Support from management

Complaints or suggestions to upper management are ignored.

Teamwork

Other departments will work against you instead of with you to resolve business matters

Freedom to work independently

micromanagement from upper management is rampant.

Internal Communication

communication is poor

Attitude towards older colleagues

older workers frequently targeted for termination

Overall compensation for your work

sheer slavery

Office / Work Environment

generally dirty and dingy

Environmental Friendliness

oil and other non recyclables frequently thrown in garbage

Work-Life Balance

Horrible. Non existent. 65 to 70 hours a week is the norm. Salaried employees are exploited as much as the company can get away with. You are lied to on hire and told no more than 50 a week. hourly employees will make more than you. You will work EVERY holiday period.

Job Security

employees terminated constantly. revolving door.

Handicapped Accessibility

non existent

Workplace Safety

machines frequently not repaired or jerry-rigged. OSHA violations frequently ignored

Challenging Work

back breaking work.

Inclusive / Diverse

fairly diverse workforce.

Suggestions for improvement

  • there are so many areas that are deficient it is difficult to say where to begin. But the exploitation and treatment of workers and junior management is the worst.

What I like about the company

free food every now and then.

What I dislike about the company

total sweatshop. You are not fairly compensated for the hours put in.

Company Culture

There was some nice cohesion among employees, but mostly out of bonding together to commiserate over a shared dislike of management.

Support from management

My first manager there was incredibly supportive. The last one I had rarely responded to emails or calls.

Teamwork

I believe there was some good team work with the rank and file. There were many that seemed to support each other to work towards common goals, but don't turn your back on any member of leadership or they will put a knife in it.

Freedom to work independently

I loved the autonomy, but there was little direction or support when I needed it.

Internal Communication

Swear words don't bother me, but when that is the only form of communication, things aren't getting done properly.

Gender Equality

That was getting better, but I heard leadership say some things about our women drivers that would have had lawyers seeing dollar signs.

Overall compensation for your work

The compensation was definitely not commensurate with what they were having me do.

Work-Life Balance

This did improve. One manager had a habit of calling people at all hours of the night, but after he left, there seemed to be a decent respect for personal time.

Handicapped Accessibility

People who weren't handicapped routinely parked in handicapped parking.

Workplace Safety

There some people that took safety seriously.

Inclusive / Diverse

There was some diversity, but inclusion is pushing it. There was definitely a good ol' boy mentality that drove some incredibly inappropriate conversations behind closed doors.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I don't think that any of the leadership team that was there when I left is still there, so it's possible it is a better environment now.

What I like about the company

They have good policies and good intentions.

What I dislike about the company

It was a company in transition at the time and it was pretty bumpy. Maybe things are better now.
