i worked at the mclane out of Rancho Cucamonga, CA. It use to be MBM but they got bought out by mclane. The work is ok, very heavy chicken boxes that weight on average 80 pounds. you will get between 6 to 8 stops a day. average 32k pounds. Every trailer is 48 ft long. All Automatics if your running local routes.if your running team runs you might get a automatic or a 10 speed manual. Pallet jacks are always running out of battery halfway through the route so you have to buy your own extension court to charge it at the stores. you have to use to a 2 wheel hand truck to roll food into the restaurant. you do all deliveries through the night. start times are between 10pm and 2am. you will average a week about 50-55 hours a week working 4 days. my take home paycheck is $1,700 every 2 weeks. Which is not good for the amount of work you do. this certain mclane is hourly only, but i heard they are going to go on component pay, which is paid per mile, per stop, per case. they said its going to get better but who knows i didnt want to stick around and wait. I needed cash for my family. Starting pay is $19 an hour. Max pay $23 an hour and it takes 3 years to hit max pay. The biggest problem i have with this mclane is Payroll be messing up my paycheck all the time and shortening me on my overtime days. they forget to pay me overtime on my 5th day.3 weeks in a row. they shorten me on the hours i worked. My co workers started catching up to it and so did I. I wasnt the only one. most of us now have to write down the times we clock in and clock out so we verify that payroll didnt mess up.
I have been driving for Mclane for 18 years now. Pay is great and home time is even better. Dedicated routes and routine maintenance of vehicles.
Driver unload, work nights and maneuver fast food parking lots. Normal BS that you find with ANY job but overall decent job. This job will sharpen your driving skills! Career potential. Job is not for everyone, but if you can stick it out, you can reap the rewards of a graduated pay scale based on length of service. Annual pay raises as well as vacation based upon length of service. Seniority is king! If you are just stating out and looking for a place to call home with income in the 50 - 90k range (eventually, and you will work hard for it) this may be a job for you. All my opinions are based upon my 20+ years at the distribution center in Manassas, Va. Average healthcare and 401k plan. Late model Freightliners with auto transmissions and some 10 speeds.
