Marketed 3-5 year contracts to companies and businesses for facilities and uniform services.
Territory Sales Account Executive (Former Employee) –  North Las Vegas, NVJanuary 3, 2017
Cold calling, targeted business calls, meetings, teleprospecting and account management.
I learned about business contract details, in person formal sales presentations, taking and keeping track of sales timelines through sales force.
Management was fair and very well organized.
Co-workers were good at working together and not stepping on each other's territory.
The hardest part was keeping track of prospective client's contract expirations and keeping them from rollover contracts.
The most enjoyable part was the flexibility and dealing with multiple industries and businesses.
Pros
Experience and training
Cons
Customer contract information or their current providers and documentation after hours

They suck
Production Worker (Current Employee) –  Marcy, NYDecember 29, 2016
All they worry about is safety. They have favouritism with some employee's. They let employee's bully other employee's. The plant manager sucks, he's always with an attitude, doesn't do anything but hide around the plant. And all they want is to make you do more work then what your not supposed to do.

Horrible Experience!
Route Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Justice, ILOctober 10, 2016
I worked for this company out of Justice Illinois for roughly 4-5months. It was the worse experience with working with a company i have ever had! Management gave nothing but broken promises to customers, never returned email or calls to customers which left the RSR facing angry customers daily with no answers! Communication was horrible, Long Hrs, very little if any information to go off of when filling in on a route. Management wanted you to do your job and their job for the most part along with sales and trying to up sale current customers. Which you couldnt up sale current customers because, GK were always on bad terms with customer's due to (broken promises, lost garments, rasing prices without knowledge, over charging, etc)

The work itself for the most part wasent bad at all, when the customers were happy and satisfied with the service which was (rare) but it did happen! The list goes on and on atleast at the justice location. I would not recommend my worse enemy to work for a company that was maneged like this place was.
Pros
Benefits, Co-workers, holidays off
Cons
Long hrs (12-14hr days), No support, Low Pay for the work load, No O.T. unless you are a route asistant, Management (broken promises), bad customer service

Should be investigated
Relief Driver (Former Employee) –  Mobile, ALSeptember 4, 2016
If you like going to work at 3am, and working until 7:30pm, not having time to eat a lunch, and having to run fast ove all day in trucks that are road hazards, digging through maggots, and dirty laundry all day in the heat, and not being compensated fairly, then this is for you! They care nothing about employees at all! There's a manager for every manager, and they're clueless! All they want is a salary, and their 2 hour lunch everyday. They don't care that you never see your family, or get sick and may need a day off to go to the dr. They expect you to be there no matter what. They said they give you health insurance after 30 days. After 3 months, I never got offered insurance, or work uniforms, and they're a uniform company. Someone found an old GK shirt at the warehouse and gave it to me. I had to wear it everyday, and my own pants. They talk big in the interview, but it's all lies. If they would manage the routes better, and have better hours, then it would be maybe tolerable. Over all, horrible job!
Pros
None
Cons
Too many hours for the small salary
