    I have been working at Ben E. Keith full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Excellent wages for work done. Quality insurance with 3k max out of pocket per year, $35 copay. Great retirement with profit sharing plan and pension, both company paid. No employee contribution needed or available. Fully vested after 6 years. Two weeks vacation after one year, three weeks after eight years.

    Cons

    Seniority means nothing. As a shuttle driver...working nights, you miss out on time spent with family in the evening. Work week is Sun night-Fri night. Tractors are automatic and turned down to minimum power settings. Older tractors are not maintained as well as they should be. If you belong to satellite yard in Oklahoma, you will not have an assigned truck unless you've won Driver of the Year.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees like they are real people, not just a number. Take a vested interest in their lives and actually listen to their concerns on how to make it a better place. Assign trucks, really, it's not that difficult.
