Here’s how it works: we contribute 10% of our profits to KeHE Cares, run by our KeHE Cares Employee Outreach Committee made upof people from a variety of departments within our company.
KeHE Cares supports organizations where our employee-owners are directly involved and committed to serving others in donating their time and talents for the betterment of those in need.

I have been working at KeHE Distributors full-time (More than 8 years)
Good pay, lots of overtime, great environment, good medical benefits, bonuses, employee stock ownership program, profit sharing, continued job all year long.
Not much to say, just that there is too much overtime in the holidays. Family and friends may seem affected because you don't have time for them.
Advice to Management
Take care of your associates
I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at KeHE Distributors in July 2017.
A supervisor showed me the work area and gave me a description of the work and showed me what equipment they used. It started off mostly conversational but then went into behavioral questions. Make sure you have answers prepared for the questions asked. I didn't prepare and I'd had too much coffee too focus, I flunked the questions and I got sent on my way. The interviewer told me they'd give me a call if they decided to move forward with me.
