Overview

Good people, working with good people, for our common good.

Sound good?

KeHE-a natural, organic, specialty and fresh food distributor-is all about "good" and is growing, so there's never been a more exciting time to join our team. If you're enthusiastic about working in an environment with a people-first culture and an organization committed to good living, good food and good service, we'd love to talk to you!

Primary Responsibilities

The KeHE Emerging Leadership Program is a six-month long program designed for college students who majored in human resources and have recently graduated college. Top candidates have demonstrated both on-campus and off-campus their high performance and leadership ability through their academics, internships, and volunteering.

 

KeHE is looking to invest in each Leadership Program Associate’s (LPA) career growth by giving them exposure to how KeHE operates from the ground up through job rotation and job shadowing portions of the Emerging Leadership Program.  Each LPA will have the opportunity to learn more of how KeHE operates starting with how KeHE onboards new clients, how KeHE’s Commercial team manages accounts, how KeHE’s operations teams fulfill orders, and more!

 

The LPA will have hands-on career development that includes completing projects to present to leadership, learning professional etiquette in the workplace, and the principals of what makes a good leader through our leadership development courses.

Essential Functions

Starting June 14, 2021, the first 90-days of the KeHE Emerging Leadership Program provides new graduates the opportunity to rotate through KeHE’s core functional areas such as operations, eCommerce, sales, human resources, supply chain, and more to gain a better understanding of the food distribution industry. During the first 90-days, the LPA will have the opportunity to take part in weekly lunch and learns, group projects, and serving events.

 

The second 90-days are focused on the LPA's career interest through providing them exposure and career development through job shadowing. As the Human Resources LPA, the job shadowing experiencing will be an introduction on how KeHE’s Operations Human Resources department operates by giving an overview on the employee life cycle at KeHE. The Human Resources LPA will partner with the Human Resources Director/Manager in one of KeHE’s distribution centers and assist with talent acquisition efforts, new hire onboarding, training and development, compliance, and more! 

 

The LPA will take part in KeHE’s mentorship program and receive hands-on career development to help aid in finding a full-time position at KeHE after completing the 6-month Emerging Leadership Program.

 

At KeHE, we strive to ensure that the Human Resources LPA accepts a full-time position at one of KeHE’s distribution centers across the United States after completing the 6-month Emerging Leadership Program. Due to KeHE’s distribution centers being across the United States, this role will require relocation post program to a DC based on business needs at that time.

An Insider's view of KeHE Distributors

What’s the vibe like in the office?

KeHE is the perfect blend of hard work and diverse culture while maintaining a vibe that is fun and collaborative. It's not just a group of professionals paid to do the work, but instead everyone is part of a team working towards a common goal.

Moe Khan

Sr. Software Automation Engineer

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

As the Manager of UI/UX Design, we work alongside & collaborate daily with engineers, product managers, and KeHE stakeholders to advocate UX & consistency across applications. The most exciting part about working for KeHE, besides the great people, is innovation - leading us to deliver high quality digital solutions transforming the food industry.

Ashley Plumb

User Experience Manager

What are some things you learned at the company?

Engineering isn't just about writing code. Understanding the needs of our users and translating those needs into a better product is a huge part of our day-to-day. Writing clean, performant code is fun and exciting, but if we don't deliver a functional product to our users at the end of the day, none of that matters.

Daniel

Lead Engineer

What are some social events your company does?

This year, the IT department at KeHE held their inaugural hackathon. It gave us the opportunity to collaborate and strengthen friendships in the spirit of friendly competition, as well as work with new and emerging technology. I cannot wait to see what is in store for next year’s hackathon!
