    Pros

    Friendly and fairly relaxed work environment, annual raises and good salary

    Cons

    They're a little old school in the way they do things. Hourly employees only get paid 50% for sick time, which is not great when you're actually sick and can't afford to take off of work.

    I worked at Ben E. Keith full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Overall they are have competitive salary. Benefits are decent and accessible. Holiday pay, paid vacation after one year

    Cons

    You need to know someone there to move up. There are some very talented people there that could change the company for the better but they would rather bring in their no experience buddy to make it even more difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Quit trying to belittle your employees.

    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.
