Do Not Apply For A Job Here
TSR (Former Employee), WisconsinOctober 17, 2014
Pros: nice co-workers while they last...
Cons: sales manager does not invest time and energy with his staff, learn to coach!!!
Ten year is less than than a year. Micro managed by direction and no assistance. In your enitial training they even discuss the high turnover rate in the company. Local sales manager needs to "live" the companies core values and help develop people.

Hard work, long hours.
Branch Manager (Former Employee), Birmingham, ALOctober 2, 2014
Lot of hard work with very little recognition of what gets done right.
Lots of focus on what needs to be better (I get that) very good at setting clear expectations, but not much effort put into coaching and training on how to get the results needed.

G & K Services
Beaumont Branch Manager (Former Employee), Beaumont, TXOctober 1, 2014
Managed the local delivery routes. It was hard work at G & K. I learned a ton at G & K when i started there right out of college. My bosses were great and co workers were great. Hardest part of the job was we were always under staffed.

Must give it time and work hard
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Hayward, CASeptember 25, 2014
The sales process for this industry can be long and territories need time to be cultivated.

Get to know the drivers in your territory and help them help you, as they are the backbone of what you are selling.

Horrible company to work for
Receptionist (Former Employee), Marcy, NYSeptember 13, 2014
Pros: nice co-workers & that's all i miss.
Cons: no time for breaks or lunch, horrible raises.
G&K bought out my previous employer and it was not a smooth transition. They gave you a impossible amount of work to do and expected it to be done in 8 hours with no overtime. I was given the work of 3 people and then was reprimanded when I was behind. Poor management, I was a prisoner at my desk. I couldn't go to the bathroom without permission while – more... others were taking 6 breaks a day. How was I rewarded for all my hard work? After 15 years my position "was eliminated". – less

Horrible company, horrible management
Sales (Current Employee), CanadaAugust 25, 2014
Pros: on your own 4 days a week
Cons: horrible mondays, micromanagement, unrealistic greedy management constantly breathing down your back
Micro management all the way where management doesn't care about anything other than you bringing in more money. Quotas are unrealistic, favoritism with zero room for advancement. Crook industry no different than competition. Management needs to listen to their sales people more. Get rid of call center Mondays and do it from home office like every other – more... sales job. This company blames sales people but in reality they have a constant turnover among managers and sales staff. – less

Exhausting work with horrible unorganized company
Route Sales Representative (Former Employee), colorado springs, coAugust 18, 2014
Pros: pay
Cons: everything else
The pay was decent, but that is all. You get up very early, sometimes at ridiculous times like 1:30 in the morning, and end whenever the route is done and if that means a 16 hour day then so be it. Management only cares about the customer and if the customer doesn't like you, they can lie and tell management that you flipped them off or something and – more... you will get written up immediately even if you didn't do anything. They don't care how long your route is, they will continue to add more and more stops no matter how much you complain. This company is also very shady. I have seen them screw customers over and over way overcharging them just to see them shrug when I would complain that I was the one who had to deal with their anger at seeing their higher bill. You get screamed at constantly by the customer by things you have no control over such as missing uniforms that come down from a different city and they are constantly unorganized and confused as to what is going on. The management expects way way to much out of their RSR's. They expect you to exhaust yourself while selling a whole bunch of merchandise all the while being screamed at and treated like dirt by the customer. If you don't sell a certain amount of merchandise then after your exhausting day at work you get the privilege of being screamed at for not making them more money. I could go on but just note, this is a horrible horrible company to work for. – less

productive place to work and caring people
Sales/service Coordinator (Current Employee), Jonesboro, ARJune 18, 2014
Pros: they work with you if you have doctors appts etc.
Cons: the insurance is really pricey.
I answer emails ,phones, and take care of sales and service force. I key in daily orders for direct sales, emblems and logo mats. I collect money from the RSR's and process this. Also take care of accounts payable. I work with all microsoft systems. I also work in SAP and IMPACT. I pull reports daily and download into word and excel to be sent out. – more... I take calls for the RSR's from customers. I enjoy the ladies I work with and we all get along well. Hardest thing is keying orders when I don't have all the information and have to call RSR's on their runs to get this. Most enjoyable part is being to able to help people and get things corrected. It will be sad when the plant relocates in December and I am not moving to new location. – less

A/R Assistant (Former Employee), Marcy, NYJune 4, 2014
Pros: excellent benefits
Cons: no advancement opportunities at my location
Each day at work, I would pull account balances based on delivery dates and call customers with past dues on their account. I would retrieve and process credit card payments for posting to accounts. I compiled data to hold weekly A/R meetings with the 2 branched that I represented. I learned about aging cycles and month end procedures. I learned the – more... effects of accounts receivable on our corporate reserve. – less
