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

Stay away unless you have nothing better to do.
shipping staff (Former Employee) –  Edison, NJJune 8, 2017
Long hours, mostly labor works which put a toll on your body, not much room for advancement, management don't do anything much to improve the work place, barely any raises even if you work there for a long time, no communication among the employees.
Pros
The people work there are nice
Cons
Management and everything else.

Order Picker (Former Employee) –  Sparks, NVApril 29, 2017
Keefe is a slave shop.To much favoritism to employees. Management hires family and if a problem arises between you and that family member then you are let go. Seen it a few times. Constantly on your feet.
Pros
The exercize is good cause you walk 9 to 12 hours a day.....
Cons
No advancement and pay is low

Bad place
Shipping Staff (Former Employee) –  fontana, caJuly 26, 2015
This is a bad place to work for. As an order picker you will walk around in a big circle like a sheep, picking orders from the shelves in a fast paced ALL day and to make it worse you have other 20-40 people trying to complete their orders too and sometimes ganging up on you. Its like running with the bulls in Spain except you run ALL day! Management is bad. If you're a new worker and you pick one wrong order then the supervisor is on you all week. Management doesn't care about its employees. They just want you to pick, pick, pick orders with no chance of advancement. You start at $11/hr and it takes about 1 year to get a raised. Again you will be walking all day picking orders fast paced at 6am and there is only one shift. After your shift you will feel like burning tire as you leave the premises but don't if youre going back to work the next day since management will be ready to write you up if you even go over 2mph. Oh believe me... they are watching. Your legs are going to hate you after a week of work here.
Pros
none
Cons
almost everything

Experience and free time is granted depending on which department you work in.
Great problem solver and selected by management (Former Employee) –  St. Charles, MoMay 28, 2015
The company is so large there is a vast amount of departments to choose from. Depending on where you start there may be easy advancement options or there may not be. Overall the company is pretty cool and the industry they service is interesting. Although the call center is one of the most important departments, I do not feel those employees are granted as much compensation (as with other company's) or the ability to easily advance. That would be the only thing I would change if possible. Overall they get a B- from me.
Pros
The affiliation to other companys and discounts offered. Work from home option
Cons
The repetition of day to day work. Constant micro management of call center employees

Terrible.
Shipping Staff (Former Employee) –  Walpole, MAMarch 19, 2015
Favoritism. No room for advancement. Management only cares that the orders are picked for the jails. They don't care about their employees whatsoever. Way too much overtime. They expect you to stay past your scheduled work time to get the work finished although you have a life outside of work.
Cons
Poor benefits, no room for advancement, favoritism

Not a career just a place to get experience.
Freight picker (Former Employee) –  EdisonJuly 28, 2012
Most of the employees and management are very friendly, but it's all a facade. Lots of nepotism to middle and upper management by employees. There is no sense of comardry with the employees do to the competion over weight in the warehouse. No matter how much experience or skills you have at your job only friends and family of management get promoted. Favoritism is extremely high in this company. Managment gives you no sense of accomplishment unless your one of their favored people. Middle management has no skills in warehouse operations. Office workers get treated like gold and warehouse workers are expendable to management. Having a open house for warehouse positions every few weeks proves this.
Pros
they teach you all aspects of warehouse operations.
Cons
no room for advancement do to favoritism.

Machine Operator/Packer (Current Employee) –  Bridgeton,MissouriJuly 22, 2012
The worst job i have ever worked for in my 20 years of manufacturing. There is no motivation to work andd no appreciation for the hard work u do other than a monthly lunch.The pay scale is horrible. You may recieve a yearly raise or you may not. 5 cent to 30 cent a year. All the praise is given to upper managment.No open door policy because the employees are afraid to speak up in fear of losing there jobs.Get this there a NO vending machines in the factory only a water and ice machine.Put front office have soda and snacks.If you feel u can deal with all these thing than its a good work place.
Pros
free monthly lunch
Cons
upper management

good job if you enjoy being treated like a child
Purchasing Agent III (Former Employee) –  st. louisApril 25, 2012
at one time this was the best place I had ever worked. As time passed we grew so much so fast it was like we almost got too big for our britches. It was fun, laid back and we were left to do our job as long as we got everything done. With the growth came promotions, problem is you only got promoted if you were on scholorship, meaning somewhow connected to management. People with no management skills or qualifications were constantly promoted over more deserving employees who were longer tenured, more knowledgeable and certainly more qualified except they were not friends or family members. I know numerous people such as myself who left due to this issue.
Pros
time off, decent pay
Cons
treated like a child, overbearing management
