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

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.
