CDL Class A Driver in North Little Rock, AR
It could be better, a lot better and the pay could be better especially with the type of work we do. I have some cool coworkers but expect to work a lot of hours

CDL Delivery Driver in Howe, TX
Was not happy at the Howe, TX office. Trailers was always overloaded and when you opened the back of trailer, product would fall out. Extra long hours and they expected you to log out the tablet in truck and still finish the route once you ran out of hours.
Purchasing Manager in San Antonio, TX
I wish I could give it less than one star. Worst place I ever worked. Lots of back stabbing and ugliness. If you sleep with the presidents son you get promoted even though you have zero education!
Delivery Driver in Lubbock, TX
Immediately after starting I heard how long they’d been looking for a driver and how people would quit after 2 weeks. It is a very strenuous job. You are unloading anywhere from 10,000-20,000 of freight of your truck by hand/dolly every single day. You will be exhausted everyday after work. After about a week I started having issues with my wrists, knees, shoulders, and back. Issues I’ve never had before. And I am young. Most customers are nice and understanding and I feel helpful as you’re bringing them what they need to stay in business. However management is non-existent. If you have a problem you may as well keep it to yourself because it will not get fixed. Whether it’s your pay, or your route, or your workload, you’ll just be ignored. It’s every man for himself. Coworkers are nice but nobody wants to be there. Everyone I’d ever talked to couldn’t wait to quit which says something. Should’ve been the first clue. You start anywhere from 12 am-5 am and finish when you get done. It’s incentive pay so you only get paid for what you do, however, it’s not by how good of a worker you are, it’s what they give you. Which normally was anywhere from 10-20 stops a day and 400-1200 cases a day. The senior guys have the better paying/gravy routes and you’ll more than likely get the bad route that doesn’t pay all that well. You’ll work like a dog and make maybe $20 an hour if you’re lucky but you’ll work 60-70 hours in 5 days. Now keep in mind it’s incentive pay, so there’s no overtime. I wouldn’t recommend anyone to work here. If you scan an item not on your truck or accidentally leave an item at the wrong stop they’ll expect you to go back and pick it up whether it was your fault or not which sometimes (with traffic) will take 30-40 minutes (THATS TIME YOU ARE NOT GETTING PAID FOR). They need to seriously treat their drivers better or they’ll never be able to keep anyone. The whole west Texas district needs a revamp. With that being said I have talked to drivers from other divisions that have nothing but good things to say so I can’t speak for Ben E Keith as a whole company but I can speak for the Lubbock office.
