they shoot themselves in the foot and then look for the shooter
Various roles (Former Employee) –  Romeoville, IL19 April 2019
it's warehousing and distribution, so typical inbound and outbound functions apply. i learned a lot about management and priorities, and the corporate environment. there are some really good managers there, but the issues that the warehouse faces are self-inflicted because the leadership team refuses to admit that their employees make expensive mistakes constantly, as hard-working as some of them are, and ignore or cover it up. the hardest part of the job is dealing with those mistakes and cleaning up after others, without getting sucked in to the mentality of giving up. i did enjoy learning a lot and acquiring many skills and experience, and busy days went by fast.
Pros
good benefits
Cons
hard to justify mediocre pay

Management oblivious to how much work they assign
Finance (Former Employee) –  Corp11 April 2019
I worked for the company for over 10years in a financial role and always gave 100%.
The senior leaders have no clue how much work gets thrown on your plate and if you try to address the amount they turn it around on you that there is no way, but can't even list your responsibilities.
HR is completely a joke and are led by the senior management team, they are not bias and open to hear both sides. There is no confidentiality with HR and they do not help the associates but instead 100% ONLY, follow senior readers direction. If you go to HR for help, you will be removed from the company! Be aware and prepared to give your life unless you brown nose the senior manager If your are a brown noser you'll go far. Even if your a liar with unethical practices. Most people are honest, good, hard working people but there are a few who are anything but ethical and will lie to Management to hide their mistakes ultimately ending up costing the customer and KeHE.
Pros
Most employees are trying to live upto the Company mission
Cons
No Life work balance, leaders who dont know what their associates jobs, Extreme favoritism, No advancement, No Recognition, Management will take credit for what you so, No loyalty, Too Many to List

Great temporary job, far too difficult for longterm. Will get you on your feet.
Selector/Picker (Former Employee) –  Elkton, FL4 April 2019
The job starts out fun and exciting. The pay is very competitive for a job that requires no experience. This will be your day every day.
Show up to the warehouse, clock in, attach a "gladiator" aka mini wrist computer to your arm with a scanner looped around your finger. You will then

-Load two pallets onto your pallet jack
-Grab an order from the warehouse desk "an order will be a deck of tags ranging anywhere from 10-500" taking anywhere from 10 minutes to 3 hours
-Drive a designated path through the warehouse to retrieve the cases indicated on your labels stacking them onto your pallets
-Shrink wrap your properly stacked pallets into their designated locations at shipping.

^ this is separated because you will literally be doing this on repeat for anywhere from 7-15 hours

The management is all new to their positions "witnessed firsthand not just claiming" within their first years. The way you are graded on your performance is based on a system that the managers themselves do not quite understand though they are trained to have an answer to every question about the system. It is far too difficult to maintain the 100% standard the system sets in place for you unless you are either from a strong military background, or simply on "performance enhancement substances" that the management will never acknowledge because these are the people maintaining that percent.
Their drug test is an expired gigantic cotton swab that will absorb nothing and be rendered useless.
They give you 2 months to maintain 100% standard before they take disciplinary action on you to move forward.
  more... So if you're a beast of a human with no care for your bodies well being then this could be a long term position for you. If not, then rejoice in the 2-3 months you get of one hundred hour paychecks with 3 zeroes.  less
Pros
Good pay. fun job at first
Cons
job gets stale very quickly, management is poor, short breaks, unrealistic expectations, poor benefits

Account Analyst (Current Employee) –  Fullerton, CA3 April 2019
KeHE provides good benefits, the company offers a lot of opportunities for growth and advancement, and they typically promote from within. KeHE is also big on the work life balance since it is part of their culture.

Working on commission
Field Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Naperville, IL24 March 2019
*A typical day at work is never typical. Transportation of product controls the flow of your work day and week. Always be prepared for tangible and intangible issues.

*Organization is the best way to control the flow of your day and week. I always stay positive and productive.

*Commission wage keeps you on your toes.
Prepared yourself for unsatisfactory answers from supervisors and management about transportation, product out of stocks, and cancellations of future commissions. This will effect your income.
Pros
Self starter
Cons
No team to back you up

Great place to work
Regional Safety Manager (Former Employee) –  Lehigh Valley, PA20 March 2019
Company is growing and appears to be heading in the right direction. Employee owned company benefits from day one for professional truck drivers. Stock options in the company. Profit sharing payable around June. The company take safety on the transportation side of thing extremely serious. Overall it is what you make it. Most drivers have been with the company for years. Drivers make a great living wage. Do your job and follow the policies and you will not have a problem. Lehigh Valley DC works primary Monday through Friday as of 2019. Tractor and trailer are fairly new. Overall it work for me. Glad that I work there, it was just time for me to fine something that was closed to home.
Pros
Worked with some great people
Cons
Company seems to micro manage just about everything.

It was okay

Working there was okay. There seemed to be an instilled competitive nature between departments, and also a lack of true vision when it came to getting the job done as a team.
Pros
Work to be done everyday
Cons
Not a team environment

Kehe Review
Accounts Payable Specialist (Former Employee) –  Jacksonville, FL11 March 2019
I was with Kehe before they were Kehe - they were Tree Of LIfe when I started and I was there for the transition so my experience is predated to the buyout. When I was employed at Tree Of Life my manager was amazing and my job was enjoyable. What i saw after they became Kehe was not agreeable to me or their mission statement.
Pros
Tree Of Life had great managers
Cons
New Management is not conducive to staying there

Horrible place period.
Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Parsippany, NJ8 March 2019
Horrible favoritism among management with this company. Very unorganized and poorly managed from warehouse to transportation. If your a friend or a relative to the managers you should have no problem getting or keeping your job or getting better pay too. You would be the favorite and can get away with anything. Rules are not consistent for every employee at this company. One person gets a verbal warning after doing the same thing 6 times instead of being written up for 5 and fired on 6. The next person would get fired for doing it because they are not the favorite.
Pros
None
Cons
Favoritism, unorganized, no discipline for the favorites.
