    I worked at KeHE Distributors part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Dedicated, caring management. Fair salaries competitive benefit package. Faith friendly. A wonderful place to work and grow while giving back to the community as well. My supervisor took a personal interest in growth and development in his team.

    Cons

    Limited opportunities for advancement as company evolves as a more supplier less service based wholesaler. Need more dedicated career minded truck drivers to join the team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote from within if at all possible.

    Pros

    Some of the best pay in the industry. My supervisor looks out for the drivers. Plenty of time off.

    Cons

    Getting warehouse to work with you. Slip seat trucks. (trucks are shared between drivers). They way I see it the

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend a little more money on Assigned equipment so easier to hold drivers accountable for damage. Warahouse loaders should periodically help drivers on routes so they know what the drivers deal with in ref to loading

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    more perks for employees. Company spiffs, contests, company parties, golf outings etc. It doesn't take a lot to keep employees feel good about the company they work for.

    I have been working at KeHE Distributors full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The best reason to work there was the money to be made if you were willing to work, Middle to high 5 figure incomes were achievable.

    Cons

    They tend to oversupervise a job where the ideal employee works best with little or no supervision. It seemed strange for a company which makes it money through sales provided no specific information on sales performance preferring instead to concentrate their criticisms in the more subjective areas of the job, They were also big on patting themselves on the back for their contributions to Christian charities but failed to see the irony of the very un-Christian way they treated their employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Concentrate on sales and develop a bonus plan which rewards the achievers, not everyone equally. Become leaders people want to emulate, not fear.

    I worked at KeHE Distributors

    Pros

    There isn't one to this company your expendable and they like to hire illegals too so they can take advantage of them and they know they will do more for less.

    Cons

    You get three 15 min breaks u don't even have time to take a crap or pee. For the amount of work in the warehouse they make u do it's ridiculous. You can be sweating and bleeding your life out in there eyes if u don't make rate your not working hard enough. There system is out of date and morale was always low no wander this company isn't profitable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This is isn't China or India or Mexico treat your employees as human beings not slaves and for the CEO do u get three 15 min breaks sir? You should try picking see what it feels like to bleed. I'm surprised there hasn't been a lawsuit yet.
