A great place to work!!
Chain delivery driver (Current Employee), Douglessville, Ga.November 8, 2014
Pros: home time, pay, benefits, new trucks!
Cons: hard work
I work in the chain division so I work 4 nights a week. It takes a little bit to get used to but, I love it. I start my week Sunday night going in getting my paper work, hooking up my tractor to the trailer and heading out to the route. I have two, two day routes, Sunday-Tuesday morning, and Wednesday-Friday. I'm off Friday, Saturday, And Tuesday night. – more... It's a lot of home time. The pay is top notch, I've brought home as much as $1400.00 in one week, but average is about $950.00 a week for me. We have company match 401k, insurance is the best you'll find. It's only $27.00 a week for me and my daughter. We also now have profit sharing. But with all that being said it is very physically demanding. This is the hardest job I've ever done in my life, I've lost 25lbs since I've been here for 6 months. But I love the company I didn't know companies like this still exist, from the management to warehouse it's all the best I've seen. I've seen 6 drivers be promoted to managers so they promote from within. I will retire from here. – less

I started working at Gordon food service when I was 16.It was a good experience. I learned that work is serious and I had to be tough if i wanted to work more hours i had to prove it with my work.The managers were very nice and always helped whenever you needed it.Culture was good it seemed like we had a close tight team at one point.Co-workers were – more... great to work with.We had to work but we could also talk with each other on our downtime.Best part of the job was if the freight was damaged chances are we would eat it. – less

Rough most of the time there.
Sales Associate/Customer Service (Former Employee), Trotwood, OHOctober 26, 2014
Pros: customers, good products
Cons: staff, management, pay
Most days at GFS include stocking product and making sure customers were happy. I learned that working as a team makes the day go by faster and to make sure you hold yourself accountable. The managers were split. Some would not mind helping while others you did not know where to find them. My co-workers were split as well. A lot of hard workers at times – more... and some that would do nothing but complain most of the time. The hardest part of the job was picking up the slack from those who did nothing. The most enjoyable part was definitely the customers. Almost everyone that came in was friendly and made for an enjoyable time. – less

Shift Leader (Current Employee), Palatine, ILOctober 24, 2014
Pros: health benefits
There is much to do and often feels like there is not enough time to do it in. A typical day involves a little bit of everything. Receiving product into the store, running a cash register, stocking product on the shelves. Managing a team of about 3-5 employees.

Sales Associate (Former Employee), Melbourne, FLSeptember 1, 2014
Pros: pay
Cons: lack of hours, management
I was a cashier at this place for only a few months. I was still in high school and I quickly realized that in order to get more hours, I had to flirt with the managers. The managers were very inappropriate around employees, especially minors. They spoke about intimate encounters, and I even had to file a harassment claim against a shift leader for – more... inviting me to his place. Instead of taking my side, they blamed me for it, and said I was being inappropriate too. Which I wasn't. I had proof, the shift leader went through records and started texting me from his personal phone. After showing my other managers, nothing happened. That shift leader continued to work and harass me. They even put me on schedules with him and I would be afraid to go to the break room by myself, or even walk to my car. I eventually had to quit because I felt like I was danger. – less

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
