Order Puller/Forklift Operator (Former Employee) – Amarillo, TX – September 5, 2016
I promise you will make ok money but your back will be hurting everyday even on days off. The long hours are a pain every worker for himself. The veterans wait to get the good pulls while new guys get the ugly pulls. Do not work there if you have high blood pressure because you will be aggravated mostly everyday. Management will not look out for you if your sick you will not be sent home even if vomiting everwhere. Beware.
Long hours and overtime pay is worthless no life management a pain

It can be a good place to work if your single with no kids. Don't plan on having a life if you work there. Half of the machines don't work and supposedly some employees have their own machine that they always use so good luck finding a descent one. Training is horrible, your supposed to get trained by an employee who knows what they are doing but they just walk around the warehouse while your breaking your head trying to stack, you only get one 15 min paid break and a 30 min unpaid lunch. It does pay well and has great benefits but think about what your giving up if you work there. It's work,sleep,shower, eat repeat

Be prepared to work as if u are not human. Working here I found myself in such a hurry not only at work but in my personal life as well. There is not time to do anything but race the clock all day. Other then that the supervisors are great and will take care of u because they know your out there knocking it out for the company. Insurance is ok not to sure about the retirement was not explained well. I like the people at Ben e Keith and they are always updating their equipment I just don't like to work like a robot.
Never ending work decent pay and people
Long hours and handling case after case all day 5-6 days a week 12-16 hours a day
Worked with the most ignorant management I'd ever come across. They treated all of us drivers like garbage but our salesmen got top notch treatment. The pay was **** there was never any help when you needed it and they worked us like slaves and still do. If you don't have an office job you ain't**** to anyone above you. Which is why no one wants to work there..... Ask any driver there on the food side, and they'll tell you how terrible management is. And how overworked and underpaid they are.
going home at the end of the day!
management sucks and doesnt give a **** what you have to say, or give advice or an opinion on, ..they don't give a **** about their drivers on the food side
Overall good company hard working co workers. Needs work on union an management. Good pay, cool hours. Cool location. would recommend anyone to work there that needs a job. Laid back atmosphere, very good training willing to train for CDL.

The employees are fun and great to work with but the it feels like managers have little to no experience being managers. The work wasn't hard but the hours were long. You had little time to spend with family or plan other activities.
Bad Idea....Do Apply to this Company!!!! Be Aware...
Driver Helper (Former Employee) – Missouri City, TX – February 3, 2016
A Typical day at work starts around 12:00am. Doing rides with a Driver. You would have to help deliver products to locations. That is the easy part. The struggle is trying to get your money. They will give you the most ridiculous reasons why your money is not correct on your check. They will charge you for uniforms and you will never receive them. You will get a ridiculous answer "Oh don't worry about it, they are on their way". Never received a uniform for the time I was there. Almost a made a year, I got disgusted and quit. Money does not match to the amount of work you do. Oh almost forgot about the dolly, you have to buy. Even though the drivers have numerous dollies on their trucks.
No Help. There's a reason why there always hiring.

Long Hours mixed with Management and Employees that make the job a pain.All the Employees do is try to give you the Hardest Pulls instead of All working together to get the production job done. They turn a 10 hr job into a 14 hr job They wait for the NEW guys to break they backs while they Wait around 15-20 minutes to get Orders they know are coming up Beacuse theyve worked there longer.There's a reason there all ways hiring. New guys get thrown under the bus. *If your a family man this isnt the job for you
long work hours, so home/work balance is off somewhat but coworkers are Great to be with on a daily basis. I learned a lot about the business and how to become a customer service salesman and sell off of trust instead of overall dollar.
Its ok to work there overnight but the people during the day like certin people and look out for them only.
Order Selector/Loader (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – August 7, 2015
The co-workers are for the most part cool everyone pretty much do there job. Its the management you have to look out for they don't like an intimidating looking person who's strong minded opinionated with ideas. I learned to just stick to doing my job. Hardest part to the job is keeping the managers off your back.
Good co-workers, Credit union
The Breaks are short and they do put you to work which you dont get recognized for.
