Life At The Marketplace
SALES ASSOCIATE (Current Employee), Lighthouse Point, FLAugust 17, 2014
Typically slow customer wise but I always have something to do. I've learned so much and have grown tremendously in Customer service. Day in and day out its usually regular customers so its pretty cool getting to know each of them and having them know me rather than just another grocery employee. I've learned to stand out and go that extra couple of – more... inches to keep that customer coming back and having a comforting experience every time they come in! Management and co-workers are a little weird to be honest. Nobody really talks to anybody. End-cap changes are probably the hardest part of the job only because it can be time consuming. They do always try to keep things fresh such as having contest with our goals to see who can hit it first or who can over achieve. – less

Decent job to work in high school.
Sales Associate (Current Employee), Farmington, MIAugust 10, 2014
Pros: with a lot to do, the time can sometimes go by quickly, some cool coworkers.
Cons: one break during your entire shift (10min or 30), overworked and underpaid, inconsistent hours.
This job is for a younger person that is willing to run around and do a bunch of things in the store for minimal pay. In most retail stores there are cashiers, stockers, lot attendants, janitors, etc. When you work at Gordon's, you will be all of those at once. There are different managers that like things done in their own way, and that causes many – more... inconsistencies from a day to day basis. You are required to do all of the things mentioned above, as well as reaching out to every customer you come across, walk them to the product, and sometimes do store carry outs. They want all of this done in a timely manner, and it causes newcomers to get overwhelmed. – less

GFS is a wonderful place to work and creates a positive working environment for all of their employees.
Customer Development Specialist (Former Employee), Louisville, KYAugust 4, 2014
While the job I have can be a difficult one, being employed by a company that appreciates you and the job you do every day makes it much easier to bear. I actually left the company for a couple of years, but after working for a company who puts their employees and customers needs above their own, it was difficult to work in a culture different from – more... that of gfs. The benefits are some of the best you can find in the workforce and the environment is so positive that you want to do a good job for them everyday! – less

Good
Business Analyst (Former Employee), Wyoming, MIAugust 3, 2014
The only think that I did not like about GFS is the weather condition in Wyoming MI as it snows heavy through out the winter but however the client provided me WFH option.

I get to work back on the Agile methodology as the project was purely Agile based.

Excellent Co-worker.

Manager (Current Employee), Grand Rapids, MIJuly 22, 2014
Pros: good benefits and culture (at least what is strived for)
Cons: pay, hours, workload, expectations, upper management communication/understanding
Retail management at GFS is better then at other retail establishments but it is still retail and thus is chaotic and stressful. Work load and expectations are high and continue to grow.

Sales Associate (Current Employee), Brooklyn, OHJune 24, 2014
Pros: free food on friday's and saturdays
Cons: short breaks
A typical day at work consists of unloading trucks, stocking shelves and assisting customers. The management team is a good team to work for. The co-workers are mostly hard workers and give a helping hand. The hardest part of the job is sometimes trying to keep up with rush of people. The most enjoyable part of the job are the co-workers. They are very – more... personable and warm. – less

Great Place to Work
Forklift Operator (Former Employee), Grand Rapids, MIMay 22, 2014
Pros: steady work, no layoffs, and merit raises + incentive bonuses
Cons: long hours ... no sleep :-)
A typical day started at 230pm , where I would begin to set-up for the 2nd shift Produce Processing Dept. I used a forklift to locate and deliver raw product to the dept. It was my responsibility to monitor and replace product as the shift progressed, and to fill out a shift report along with usage and throw-out sheets to be handed in prior to end of – more... shift. At times I was called on to assist in the warehouse as needed, which often resulted in a lot of overtime. I learned much from this job in terms of warehouse management, and the importance of paperwork to ensure accurate data for the company database. Also, I learned how to structure my workday to ensure efficiency and smooth flow of production which ensured cash bonuses for production goals.
The best parts of the job were the benefits, such as a retirement fund(self directed investment) safety and attendance bonuses, and profit sharing. Also a great crew to work with. – less
