Customer Development Specialist (Current Employee), Nashville, TN – July 24, 2012
A day includes servicing existing customers, and prospecting new clients. I have learned to open new business through overcoming objections and fullfilling needs.

Great work environment, little room for advancement
Vendor Receivables Coordinator (Current Employee), Grand Rapids, MI – June 25, 2012
Pros: tuition reimbursment, company outings, low cost insurance, family orientated
Cons: little room for advancement, salary, lack of communication
GFS is wonderful company to work for, but room for advancement is minimal. This company is so great to work for, internal postings are very few and far between. Another issue is the salary...As your responsibilities change, your pay does not. However, it's a trade off as you are offered great insurance at a low price and multiple company outings.
Other – more... than that, they are very flexible and very family orientated. They support the continuance of education by offering to help with college tuition – less

With their work life balance being soooo far out of wack the "culture" is just talk..... they don't care about you, your family or anything except how many hours they work you.

Friendly and fun workplace, good for students
Sales Associate (Current Employee), Lewis Center, OH – May 23, 2012
At GFS you are hired on as a sales associate so you will work as both a cashier and a stocker. You will be asked to answer customer's questions, clean the store, slice meat and other general tasks. The management is always very understanding if you can't make it to a shift as long as you find someone to cover for you. It is usually easy to find someone – more... to cover because all of the sales associates are very friendly and act like a family. The only negatives are that sometimes it is hard to get hours when it is not graduation season or near a holiday. – less
