Plenty of hours, physically stenuous labor, abnormal hours
Driver helper (Former Employee), Edmond Ben E KeithMarch 12, 2014
Pros: i heard drivers make a lot after 1 year, cadio/muscle workout.
Cons: you may blow out your knees on ramp, 2:00am clock in times
Job/work life: drivers start work mostly between 2 and 5 AM. seem like drivers averaged over 58hrs. From what I've hear for a trucking job this isn't bad considering some trucking jobs are on call 24-7
compensation: I was at $12 hr driver helper. driver trainees make $14.50hr for training period, incentive pay after, I heard after a year you could make – more... a lot like $75,000 if you work enough hours.
Job security/Advancement: I got my CDL and they told me before starting I would start driving at end of 1st week: that didn't happen. After seven weeks I left because as far as I know I would remain as driver helper for the next 3 months; also this job is too much on your knees. It's commonplace to carry 250lbs down a steep ramp out the back of a truck on a hand dolly (with or without decent brakes depending on the dolly). They tell you to buy your own hand truck which new is at least $200 and up to over $500.
I had to quit for two reasons 1) because I was trying to get started on my driving career and they would only allow me to ride along routes and unload the truck (and not drive). 2) my knees feel very strange (bad) and I figure if I stuck with this job I would cause serious damage to my knees (which is not uncommon).

work time is mostly spent unloading and rearranging trailer. Some routes are very local I've been to Kansas border. Hardest part of job is going down the ramp. I sort of liked the fact that it was a physically demanding job but I think it's a bit "over the line" and abusive (like your knees can't handle it).

This job is known to be bad for the knees but some people will be affected worse than others. I know there was a guy there who was doing it for 8 years and he said he hasn't had a problem.

Everybody has Sunday off, lighter work on Saturdays – less

New location open up in Houston,TX
Loader Operator (Current Employee), Houston, TXAugust 1, 2013
Coming into this job I was told that about the company and how great it is work at Ben E. Keith. How they treat the employees like family and they look to hire and promote with the company and not outside. Which for me sounded great. The training for the company was intense they paid for us to go to school to learn how to do our job and get certified. – more... As time went on with this location just starting so the managers run the company the way they want to and not like the location in Forth Worth and San Antonio. They were unorganized a lot of people have quit since I have been there. We started off with 8 loader and now it just 3 including myself. There are some days where it's just me by myself. The loader is the hardest job because if the truck is not loaded correctly then you have unload everything then reloaded it correctly. This problems that continue to happen makes it hard to work for them and especially when I'm loading 50-100 trucks myself with no help. I have tried talking with the managers to see if they would hire more people but they told me to deal with it. I just don't think that is fair when I come to work every night and show up on time. – less

A typical day was good. I learned how to drive a standard semi truck a little better. I enjoyed the work environment and the head boss made the day go by easier.
