Customer Service Representative (Former Employee), Grand Rapids, MISeptember 6, 2013
Pros: got to work with so many wonderful people, enjoyed putting through orders and learning all about gordon products, building relationships, being part of a first class company.new
Cons: i cannot think of any!
I really enjoyed working with this team--loved talking to the account reps, getting to know them and helping them do the best job possible for the customer. Every call was a new adventure--could be a late truck, new business opportunity to pass on to the appropriate area rep., helping a caller get the right info regarding allergy concerns, power outages, – more... --such a variety that there's never a dull moment. I even got to handle some basic IT support calls-just first level stuff, but it made me feel special that I could help with the tech. side of the business too! – less

Poor upper management
shift leader (Former Employee), mentor, OHSeptember 4, 2013
I was a shift leader at gfs. Our district manager was terrible. The turn over for managers and asst. managers was high. He had his favorites who could do no wrong and then there were managers like mine who were AMAZING but he drove him out of the company in less then 2 years. Despite him, I loved the job. My associates were like family. Everyone got – more... along very well and helped eachother out. The company offers quarterly bonuses and many contest where you can earn cash bonuses and/or various gift cards. But be prepared to work with very little time for breaks or lunch. There is no set break or lunch schedule unless you are a minor. I use to take a bite of my lunch then literally have to jump up to answer a phone or provide back up to a cashier. Very fast paced environment. I think whether or not you enjoy the job or not depends on the type of managers you work for. They can make you either hate the job or love the job. – less

Good benefits and pay, but main boss is very self absorbed and doesn't care about his team.

I work out of central Florida. Two day runs working at night and sleeping during the day. I enjoy the job, and the benefits and pay are good, but our TM is not a real good guy.

CDL A T tractor trailer driver (Current Employee), Grand Rapids, MIAugust 26, 2013
Pros: unusual perks, fair pay
Cons: a lot of politics going on at all levels. a great deal of apprehension.
A reputable business that offers many unique benefits and opportunities to the right person.
Typically you start very early and get done when you get it done.The management is generally selected from the inside which is not always a good thing. If you are in a job that requires physical labor the work will be very high frequency and very demanding. – more... The best part of working at GFS is the annual meeting. – less

Worked here only as a sales associate during high school, but from what I experienced there were no concerns with job security or with management. For full time employees the benefits are also good.

Friendly Atmosphere, and Great Staff
Customer Service Representative, Sales Associate (Current Employee), Dayton, OHJuly 6, 2013
Pros: flexibility with scheduling, clean work place, friendly staff
Cons: short breaks, demanding, and tiring.
A typical day at Gordan Food Service would consist of assisting customers with any questions or concerns that may be brought to the attention of the staff, Answering telephone calls, and completing daily task that management has for the sales associate.
Working at Gordon Food Service has taught me that running a large Corporation is very difficult. – more... Especially when it comes to Customer service. Understanding that not every customer is going to be in a great mood and that not everyone you work with is either. At all times you absolutely must remain professional and not let your views or moods get in the way of what (GFS) stands for. (GFS) has also taught me being organized and knowing product is key in being successful in sales.
The Management at GFS was Great! Not only are they very understanding of things that may come about outside of work, they are more than willing to work around these issues. At times management can be a little demanding, but they will never have the staff do anything that they couldn't accomplish themselves.
My Co-workers are like family. They have their days where their personal lives may affect their moods at work but for the most part they all are using (GFS) to propel them further in life, and are a blast to work with. Everyone takes their job very seriously and works extremely hard to meet the daily goals of the company.
The Hardest part of the Jobs would be completing truck. Every Monday, Wed, and Friday Mornings and Afternoons a truck arrives to the store for Sales Associates to stock. It is VERY tiring and can be ailing to the back.
The most enjoyable part at Gordon Food Service would be sampling the new foods that arrive and just showing up everyday for work. we have a fun time while working. There's always something new happening at (GFS) – less
