    Pros

    The employees are amazing

    Cons

    Managers don’t communicate, always looking to blame someone, it’s a mess and disorganized, inconsistent z No leadership- core values are noting being displayed by non of the top management - very hostile. As the cuss out employees .

    Advice to Management

    When you have that much turnover- you have to look at whos leading the dept and mgmt. They don’t protect KeHE, ,.

    I worked at KeHE Distributors full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Their charitable donations & community volunteering are decent. Company is employee owned but that’s only beneficial if you’re there 10+ years. Generally, co-workers and management are kind & easy to get along with.

    Cons

    Ordering is very difficult for customers & inventory management is out dated and inefficient. Upper level management is 99% white male and there’s very little diversity amongst mid level management either. HR is consistently hostile & aggressive towards employees and the benefits & pay they present at time of hire is not at all what it seems.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your people; micromanaging your salaried, career professionals is disrespectful & offensive. Presenting benefits & expense reimbursements as if they are on par or better than industry norm when in fact they’re actually far below is deceitful at best. Not reimbursing actual out of pocket costs of standard business expenses not only equates to an unforeseen, substantial pay cut, but is highly unethical.

    Pros

    Good Pay, Good incentives, Good Benefits. Management is accomodating. Learning stones to a world of cheese. Good starting and leaving hours.

    Cons

    I worked in the New Cheese Department and got terminated over failure of completing probationary period, and later on finding out it was over how people feel some type of way about me. This department lacks ALOT communication and infrastructure. Im still hearing they currently have the same “problems” as they did with me and they still have not addressed anything. As far as who leads it. Definitely needs some training on communicating and understanding having a leadership role and not let FEELINGS get in the way. Lol. Its completely biased as there is a family member working in that department that is completely emotionally unstable. Anywho if applying for that department get ready to deal with ALOT of emotion, feelings, and misunderstandings.

    Advice to Management

    If you guys put somebody in a leading position please make sure they are well trained and understanding of the role. Also if the company does not allow family members working with each other Its expected you guys to enforce that. Besides That you guys are very accommodating

    Pros

    Pros- None - Seek another company ..

    Cons

    They don't help you when needed.. They don't back you up when needed.. Supervisor's are just interested in the bonus...

    Advice to Management

    Take a Chill Pill and stand up for your employees stop acting like R2D2.....Your time is limited in Retail, you have an account with another under-proforming account .. You must attract losers, because this company is one...Potential employees don't consider this company you will be dragged down to dog crap.
