Labourer (Former Employee) – Delta, BC – 19 September 2016
This company has been downsizing jobs for years since they were bought by an American company. Shipping jobs to Michigan, cutting incentives and pushing more work load onto smaller staffing. Solid and consistent work hours and good people were the only thing keeping me there.
Inventory Control (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 11 September 2016
My experience with GFS Calgary has been nothing but greatness. The company really cares about its employees, and always aims for greatness. The management are really easy to talk to, and are very cooperative, and are excellent leaders to the each group they lead. Every year it was a job i would look forward to going to work (I work in the summer months). I am very thankful for the training i have received, and the work i have accomplished with GFS. Could not be happier.
AZ Sales Service Delivery Driver (Former Employee) – Milton, ON – 22 July 2016
Worst company I ever worked for. Horrible experience, highly un-organized. Told me gonna hire me on Starbucks after orientation they will keep in broaddline. The salary peanuts Long hours, No helpers, 80% their instructions about deliveries wrong. Will send the newly trained guys to downtown where they know nothing where to go and how to deliver. I can write an essay on this company why its a place where one shouldn't work but don't want to waste my time.

Buyer/Planner (Former Employee) – Milton, ON – 3 May 2016
Regular 9-5 job. Good experience out of university. Learned how a multi-billion dollar corporation operates efficiently. learned about the procurement process, analyzing, buying, forecasting. Co-worker very professional. Job was not difficult, very structured and well organized. Most enjoyable part was the learning experience as a starting point of my career. The company was very supportive and even contributed to educational fees related to work such as my PMAC.
extremely hard physical work with unreal expectations
Operations Supervisor (Former Employee) – Annacis Island , Delta B.C – 13 March 2016
Company is a revolving door. Physical work is extremely hard and goals are unrealistic. Management will put you on their firing list if you get hurt. No union so company basically chooses who they like and get rid of the rest. They will promise employees things just to quiet any union talk but never deliver. Company is focused on one thing and that's get the job done as quickly as possible with least amount of hours used. Almost impossible to move up and physical work makes it difficult as you get older, not a place you can work at for a long time. Management will say they want to listen and fix issues but nothing EVER changes. Staff get let go for ridiculous reasons and no one can protect them ,they will just give you a small buyout to keep you quiet. Selection crew gets treated like scum while dayshift get all the perks. This company needs to vote YES for a union or nothing will change EVER !!
benefits are good
Graveyard hours, always in a feezing environment, worked like slaves, not a long term job
Productive and fun to work with the billiard table
