Great Overall Company
Customer Development Specialist (Current Employee), Tri-Cities of East TennesseeJanuary 25, 2014
Pros: great benefits, great people
Cons: disloyality of the food service industry, commission only job
A day includes servicing existing customers, and prospecting new clients. I have learned to open new business through overcoming objections and fulfilling needs. Management has been very supportive and provides resources to be successful. Fellow co-workers are very supportive and help create a team atmosphere. Hardest part of the job is the lack of – more... loyalty from some of your customers and shady competition. The most enjoyable part of the job is fulfilling the needs of your clients and making them more profitable. – less

productive workplace
Sales associate (Current Employee), Indianapolis, INJanuary 12, 2014
Pros: good advancement oppurtunities
Cons: not getting trained
A typical day at work at Gordon Food Service is to greet the customers when they walk through the door and when a sales associate sees them in the workplace. The cashier makes sure the customer is helped completely at the register. The sales associate on the floor stocking the shelves makes sure all customers are satisfied with the staff and store. – more... most sales associates will go get carts from the parking lot. i have learned to work at the best of your ability every time you work. the hardest part of the job would be lifting up heavy boxes to put on top of the shelves. the most enjoyable part about working of the job is seeing the happy customers being grateful after you have helped them. – less

Pros: incestive checks (man i really miss those)
Cons: non
Go to work and pull the orders we were given for the day take breaks and get to talk to each other on lunch then go back and do the same thing if you i finished yours then you went and helped someone with theirs.
I learned how to work with team work, because you were not going to get your order done in time unless you had some helping your back.
the – more... hardest part the same thing 'm still in he freezer and I 'm freezing .

Wonderful place to work and great benefits!
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Bowling Green, KYDecember 13, 2013
Pros: everything!
Cons: it can be a little boring at times.
A typical day at work consists of standing at the cash register, cleaning and stocking. What I learned is there are some wonderful people left in the world and they work at GFS. The hardest part of the job is staying at the register and not wondering off trying to stock or clean something. The most enjoyable part is the company games we play like who – more... ever sells the most of something gets a prize or the most email sign ups. – less

Productive and fast pace customer service
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Lima, OHDecember 3, 2013
Pros: clean, productive
Cons: little to no break, workload
I would clock in, and go to the back room where I grab items that needed to be stocked in the store. Helping customers with questions about the product, showing product, cash register, ordering items, phone called, slicing meats and cheese, and all other customer services. My management were very understanding and were always their for problems, help, – more... and guidance. My co-workers were friendly and nice, and always willing to help in times of need. the hardest part would be the multiple task going on at the same time. The most enjoyable part of my job is seeing customers satisfied with my work. – less

Sales Associate (Former Employee), Livonia, MINovember 26, 2013
Being the low man on the totem always sucks. not much else to say. Managers treat you badly but that's because they mostly work with young adults who haven't been out in the real world

Two Faced
IT Department (Former Employee), Grand Rapids, MIOctober 31, 2013
They profess to be a great company to work for which was true in the past. They have grown so large that the family values that they tout are all for show.
Lower management does not have the experience or desire to be good at their jobs, but use you to get the accolades of the upper management.
