    I have an interview for McLane at the Longmont, CO location on Monday. That location handles the grocery side from what I'm told. Anybody have any experience on the grocery side of McLane? Any feedback would be helpful...negative or positive.

    I could be wrong but I believe they tend to be easier than the food service side. Less weight, smaller stops. Longer routes though, and I think they tend to run teams.

    that's my hood!!!!!!!!!

    A lot of those routes out of that DC are team routes, but usually out and back in 2 days or less and the guy told me (few years back) they would do the same run twice a week. (so out mon/tues to whereever adn then same thing on Thurs/Fri) Every guy i talked to said they cheat, both guys help unload at stops.

    it pays bank.

    and McLane has killer benefits.

    their trucks are slow.
    all 2 wheeler work and ramps out that DC
