Fun and educational
Office clerk (Current Employee), Lakeside, NSFebruary 13, 2014
Pros: it is a great place to work.
Cons: there were no full time positions in my field, and the pay is low.
Interacting with the elderly taught me compassion, as well as a love for the elderly and the stories they have to tell. The most enjoyable part of the day would have to be doing something special for one of the residents, something as simple as , " an ear". The hardest part would be seeing them decline, and eventually pass away.

I had a very good relationship – more... with the management, as an employee who worked there for 8 yrs in food service, then left to go to College, they gave me the opportuntity to do my work placement there at the Reception Desk, to practice my skills. – less

Territory Sales Representative (Former Employee), Ottawa, ONFebruary 12, 2014
Pros: job security
Cons: warm and cold weather conditions
Going door to door Cold Calling, building prospects and gaining new customers. Learn to accept rejections and to never allow it to bother me. I had a great relationships with the management group, they were very supportive. I have build great relationship with my co-workers with G&K, I'm the type of person that would say Hi to every one and I always – more... thought that that made me easily approachable. The hardest part of the Job at the beginning was to accept rejection. The Most enjoyable part of my Job is knowing that I have met my Sales Objectives by continuoulsy working hard and keeping a positive attitude. – less

Room for advancement if you work hard to earn it. Would not recommend to anyone not willing to work 60+ hours on a regular basis
Route Manager (Former Employee), Memphis, TNApril 2, 2014
Pros: off on weekends and major holidays.
Cons: long hours, intimidation style of upper management, upper management always raising customer's pricing which creates alot of problems.
G&K is a stable company with room to grow your career, especially if you are willing to re locate and get in with the right people. In management the work life balance is almost non existent as you will work 12- 14 hrs a day and still not have all the days work done. The management style is changing to more of an intimidation approach and not many people – more... feel secure in their jobs. – less

Worst job experience ever!!!
General Labor/Emblem Wall (Former Employee), Atlanta, GAMarch 12, 2014
Pros: free pizza twice
Cons: workplace drama, terrible compensation, benefits were no good.
The hours would change on a daily basis. There was no communication whatsoever. They gave out gift cards around the holidays and deducted it from our checks. I went to the doctor and found out the insurance was no good. I made $8.50 and hour as an experienced production worker (who can live off that in Atlanta). People would not train me because they – more... were so worried about how I was paying for what I drive. I have a lawsuit based on discrimination against them for why I was fired (after 11 weeks). Run from this employer!!! – less

I was a driver working around 65+ hours a week only earning salary. Paycheck was ALWAYS adjusting even tho we were paid salary. Management never had my back on issues with my load. By far the most unorganized company I have worked for.

Great people to work with, had a great time there.
Super Route Sales/Service Rep. (Former Employee), Santa Fe Springs, CAFebruary 10, 2014
Pros: outdoors everyday. working independently out in the field. working with people.
Cons: early morning start to the day, sometimes have to change your routine to deal with challenges that arise.
A typical work day started at 5 am. Checking out the load for the day and teaming up with my helper and manager for sales strategies and service issues to be dealt with.
I learned that there are many ways to achieve success in the service industry. Management was very creative in their ability to tackle some very challenging situations.
The hardest – more... part of my job, was getting up at 4 am to be at work by 5 am.
The most enjoyable part of my job was working with a team of people that were committed to taking care of our customers. I also enjoyed working with people in the field on a daily basis. – less

Long hours and poor management
Route Sales Representative (Former Employee), Kingsport, TNJanuary 28, 2014
Pros: compensation and benefits
Cons: long hours and management
I would go in extremely early and get the day started by loading the truck with what I needed for the day. Work for however long it took to get the route over with, which was usually around 5 or 6. Extremely long hours about 11 or 12 hour days. Management always expected more than what you were giving. A lot of drama each day in the office. Good pay – more... and benefits but that was about it. – less
