GFS - a family corporation
District Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Delta15 October 2013
GFS is a large American based company operating in Canada. There are many division, including sales, transportation, credit and marketing.

The company strives to be as profitable as possible, and there are financial incentives for each category in doing so.

This structure bodes well for those firmly implanted in the company, but leaves little wiggle room for those trying to break into the ranks.

Each department seems to have different levels of turnover, however majority of the people there have been there for years. This mean GFS will either be the company for you, or it wont. Not much in between.
Pros
great benefits, decent salary
Cons
giant corporation under a "family owned" veil

Bleed your life away if you a career out of this.
Order Picker (Former Employee) –  Richmond, BC22 February 2018
First day in the group interview and I was ready to walk out as soon as they said everyone starts doing graveyard shifts and advance from there. They also said the minimum grind is about 2 years before you can get regular shifts. I mean this may be perfect for some people given their circumstances and situations but not for me. As a company that promotes healthy lifestyle. You shouldn't have people running graveyard freezer shifts.. Also the performance based incentives bonuses is really bad as it focuses on individuals rather than a whole as a team.
Pros
Potential future growth
Cons
Incentives based bonuses that focus individually.
