Production Technician (Current Employee) – Gentry, AR – September 25, 2017
Compared to other jobs I've held, this one is the easiest and pays the best. They have free Little Debbies on break, you get an extra 10% off at their stores, and profit share (BONUS) every year after your first 2 years. This is the first job I've had with paid time off. They have Thanksgiving and Christmas off (which you have to use PTO for) but you have plenty of opportunities off. The plants completely shut down Saturdays, so you won't work that day. The workplace is loud (production) and a lot of times you're by yourself, but all the employees are good to work with. Most supervisors are great, but of course there are some that aren't great just like any place. They care about your safety and well-being. I will be working here until I retire.
Sipping utility (Former Employee) – Stuarts Draft, VA – August 29, 2017
McKee foods will draw you in with talk of leadership, family oriented, and so called "values" that the company follows. Once behind closed doors the truth is revealed. They care for nothing more than a dollar, and will dispose of employees for any reason they come up with.
Team Leader (Former Employee) – Collegedale, TN – August 9, 2017
At McKee there is a lot of jobs you can do and It is an rewarding place to work. I absolutely loved my job there and had considered returning to work for such a great company, but I decided to move to GA instead of Tennessee.
Electronics Technician (Current Employee) – Gentry, AR – August 5, 2017
Job is not hard. They have no paid holidays. You are FORCED to use your PTO for holidays or you will gets points against you for not saving time for holidays. Their insurance is very expensive and little to know coverage with a lot of out of pocket expense.
I really liked the pay and the hours. However, the bullying is a real problem. Certain supervisors turn a blind eye. I was told of this before I started and didn't think it could be as bad as they stated. It was worse.
Great place to work and always doing extra things outside of work to make things fun.
Process Operator (Former Employee) – Stuarts Draft, VA – April 5, 2017
Learned how to run a depositor and operator a fryer. The hardest part of the job was making sure the dough was done all the way through. We were all treated like one big family. You went into work,done your job, went home.
Corporate Wellness Health Professional (Former Employee) – Chattanooga, TN – March 30, 2017
I love the family business culture. The workplace feels safe and inviting and I can trust my co-workers. There is also room for growth and advancement opportunities since McKee usually promotes from within.
