Great place to work, Loved the environment and co-workers
Receptionist / Customer Care Rep (Former Employee) –  Amherst, NS6 February 2018
Great place to work. I went in covering a term position and was hired on after the job term was over. I was hired in accounts receivable and then moved to customer service.
This job was illuminated at the time and there were not more positions available.

Top Heavy Company with little to no clue
Operations Clerk (Current Employee) –  Edmonton, AB31 January 2018
GFS pays you ok to work but definitely not to think. The whole company is so top heavy and most of the senior management has absolutely no clue as to what their own department supervisors get away with. Lies, theft, time theft and a breach of confidentiality is common in most departments. HR is just as oblivious. When you try to address a situation, you get made to be the bad guy even if you are in the right. HR has the best interests of the company in mind, not the people they are supposed to be assisting.

warehouse environment
Order Picker/Forklift Operator (Former Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB28 November 2017
Standard warehouse work with competitive rates. Very "yesman" orientated, meaning there's room for advancement If you have a robotic work ethic. Easy work for the pay but don't have a mind of your own or they will find ways to terminate you.
Pros
food discounts
Cons
improperly managed, asvancement basee on who you know and not based on abilities.

Poor place to work.
Order Selector (Current Employee) –  Edmonton, AB19 October 2017
Management does not have a clue and micro manages, I would say moral is low but there is none. Very hard work and get treated like garbage. 90% of the shifts are at night and very toxic environment with very selfish peers. Work out of back of truck or in the warehouse and inhale toxins all the time from the pesticides, great place to get cancer. They have a revolving door and are constantly hiring.
Pros
None.
Cons
Long Hours.

Great group of people to work with
Warehouse Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Milton, ON17 October 2017
This company may not be perfect but it certainly strives and aims for it. A group of workers that are driven for high performance and rewarded for it. A culture that cares for its hourly employees, and a management team that explores every opportunity to improve your experience by taking suggestions from those on the warehouse floor. Loads of great events planned around the year for both team building and family inclusion.
Pros
pay, benefits, bonuses
Cons
some shifts take time to adjust to

Fast-paced, well-paid if you work for it
Order Selector (Former Employee) –  Milton, ON7 October 2017
The main selling point is the amount of money you can earn if you're willing to work hard and fast. The hourly wage is the minimum wage for you at Gordon. Factoring in your speed and accuracy, you can easily double your annual income - even more. You just need to get very, very good at the job.

Perfect for young men who are all hustle.
Pros
High wages (if you work for them)
Cons
Hard to get a good shift
