Truck Driver (Current Employee) – Milton, ON – 22 April 2018
Pay is good for the back breaking work we do. Company events are great, see you all at the Rodeo. This will be my 2nd year attending. Drivers all have a good working relationship and we all help each other out. We all work very well together like a good oiled truck. BUT Supervisors and Management need a lot of work. Very much to negative on every angle. We have to rely on the clerks or cleaners for smiles and respect. Too much gossip and rumour spreading mainly by supervisors and why do we have so many supervisors on one shift it confuses things when we call in to get our issues deal with we speak to a different person every time there were 5 on at one time. Better training plans to be put in place for new folk instead of rushing them through and hoping for a good turn out. Management needs to do a better job of being more understanding and caring of the new people coming in and being more present to them instead of making them feel like they don’t belong and that they have to figure out things on there own. New drivers need more on road training and cart building training. To many injuries are hapening because improper handling practices. Pre-shift exercises should be enforced and followed through with. I think we should have senior lead drivers for all shifts including freshex and coffee company not just the downtown team. Give a chance for us older ones to take on more responsibility and let us take the lead on dealing with our drivers issues while out on the road. Been here almost 7 years I think I earned my shot at taking the lead. Added services has been taken away.more... This has left a negative impact on us and when we have them once in a while now we are asked questions for it. More transportation events would be great, like morning breakfast again by Management or bagged lunches for the road or theme days. It’s the little things that make us keep going. We are what the customers see afterall.less

Cleaning janitor (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 13 April 2018
Worked at different times of the day, early morning, day, evening and overnight. Never have to deal with the customers, but with the warehouse workers. You should be careful to avoid fast moving equippements such as fork lifts and other palette jacks etc.. Time to time, you may have to clean the cold storage at -20C. Overall, you are paid well and had made a lot of friends from the management to the workers.

Driver (Current Employee) – Milton, ON – 16 March 2018
People are treated unfairly. Never recognized for good work. Only bad. No reviews. Huge turn over. Empty promises. Management is like high school. No guidance. Don’t turn to HR. They don’t have your back. There moles. They never help just make things worse. Company says they a family company and care about there people. They only care about the money. You could break your back and they only care about your deliveries. Not you. Management acts nice to everyone face but could care less about you as a human.
Sales Service Representative (Former Employee) – Ontario – 7 March 2018
preaches about culture and integrity but only those who manipulate and kiss butt progress. Cliques are abound. Bullying. Management plays favorites & lies to your face. Manipulation is rewarded with company wide acknowledgement & advancement.
Material Handler (Current Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 1 March 2018
I just don't like multiple store in one skid because it cause me a lot of trouble like mixed pieces, not on trucks ( NOT) and worst case scenario errors. If you have 1 error you have to pick up 17,500 cases( we call it 1/17,500) to cover up your mistakes and your incentives will be affected for 4 months.
Order Picker (Former Employee) – Richmond, BC – 22 February 2018
First day in the group interview and I was ready to walk out as soon as they said everyone starts doing graveyard shifts and advance from there. They also said the minimum grind is about 2 years before you can get regular shifts. I mean this may be perfect for some people given their circumstances and situations but not for me. As a company that promotes healthy lifestyle. You shouldn't have people running graveyard freezer shifts.. Also the performance based incentives bonuses is really bad as it focuses on individuals rather than a whole as a team.
Great place to work, Loved the environment and co-workers
Receptionist / Customer Care Rep (Former Employee) – Amherst, NS – 6 February 2018
Great place to work. I went in covering a term position and was hired on after the job term was over. I was hired in accounts receivable and then moved to customer service. This job was illuminated at the time and there were not more positions available.
Operations Clerk (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 31 January 2018
GFS pays you ok to work but definitely not to think. The whole company is so top heavy and most of the senior management has absolutely no clue as to what their own department supervisors get away with. Lies, theft, time theft and a breach of confidentiality is common in most departments. HR is just as oblivious. When you try to address a situation, you get made to be the bad guy even if you are in the right. HR has the best interests of the company in mind, not the people they are supposed to be assisting.
Order Picker/Forklift Operator (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 28 November 2017
Standard warehouse work with competitive rates. Very "yesman" orientated, meaning there's room for advancement If you have a robotic work ethic. Easy work for the pay but don't have a mind of your own or they will find ways to terminate you.
improperly managed, asvancement basee on who you know and not based on abilities.
