I enjoy this Part time job
Commissary Clerk (Current Employee) –  Boise, IDJuly 14, 2018
Never knew this company existed until I worked in the prisons. I wish I could have found this earlier in my career. I enjoy what Keefe has to offer both for the inmates and their workers, I do not plan on quiting this job, as it is easy and I enjoy the fast pace of it.

Prior/Current Employment
Purchasing Agent (Current Employee) –  St. Louis, MOMay 22, 2018
In employment there is a fine balance in culture. Once a company is procured and is run as an investment opportunity vs. a company that is invested in itself and its employees, the culture changes. There is an opportunity amongst employer and employee to share the same goals. I not only look for the opportunity to advance a company as an employee, but to also advance a company by building professional/personal relationships to not only grow the company, but to also grow myself.

Job has no room for advancement . You work your hours and extra hours when available. Day and night shifts two locations but no room for growth. Takes awhile for raises.

Not engaging, repetitive, no room for growth
Order Puller (Former Employee) –  Fontana, CAOctober 10, 2017
Lots of favoritism, the favorites don't have to work as hard and still get their FULL bonus while most have to pull orders and work hard just to try and reach the first bonus tier. Also, if you want a supervisor position make sure to get on the managers good side, it's the only way to move up and do the least amount of work without repercussions. Warehouse manager doesn't hold everyone accountable to the same standards, like supervisors and certain departments/ people. They've been promising a raise for a long time, company has been bought out by an investment company and fired a lot of people to outsource jobs. Those jobs have been moved to Arizona, and filled by inmates, they save on labor by paying them 3$ an hour. This company is not here for employees. Beware of this place.

Grand rapids commissary warehouse is THE WORST job i have ever had.
Picker/Packer sealer (Former Employee) –  Grand Rapids, MIJune 15, 2017
I worked in the ware house on Kraft avenue and have never had a worse employment experience. In particular the management, supervisors, line leads, and "head honcho" do not have your best interests in mind. They feed employees tons of lies about raises, potential promotions, and bonuses to keep them working like robots only to let you down. They make promises they can't keep, and DO not know how to talk to employees or run a warehouse. When they finally came up with a bonus structure hardly any one picking on the line can reach the expected quotas while every one else in the warehouse practically gets it handed to them. I often was belittled and offended at work. So thankful to be out of that place and starting a new life with a new company.
Pros
Occasional hour lunches, a few friendly honest hard working individuals
Cons
No AC, No over time, management, disgusting work conditions, no advancement opportunity, max 50 cent raise yearly, hostile work environment

Interesting, yet intimidating.
Commissary Agent (Former Employee) –  Florence, AZJanuary 13, 2017
Morning meetings, make sure daily priorities are met. Inventory supplies at the Unit you worked at. Receive commissary orders and verify no shortages. Distribute commissary to inmates and correct order if missing items. File all receipts on a daily basis.
Management was a plus, co-workers were some of the best.
Pros
Manager and co-workers, hours
Cons
no advancement
