Route Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Jackson, MS – June 13, 2016
Load and check sheet to make sure you have everything that is needed for the route for that day. I learned a few tricks on how to kick up a rouge and carrier cloths. Management made sure we were informed of new costumers and new items to sale to customers. My co-works were some good guys that share information helped me along the way. Hardest thing about the Job was working on rainy days. What I injoyed the most was meeting new people along the wa
Feeling free and on your on.
losing customers due to price increase ( 5 increase with a year)
Management team is inept and self absorbed. No pre planning or organization. People in upper management have no idea what they are doing and frankly could care less of the low standard working conditions that they have created. They refuse to listen to the people actually running the routes as to how to improve them. You have good people working in the field that are run ragged, used up, not heard, lied to, purposely misled and treated with no regard. People work upwards of 60+ hours a week. (This is the norm) Management has no regards for Texas DOT rules and regulations.
If you are young and in shape and looking for a start in a career than I would recommend trying this company. Lot's of lifting and hard work, not a job for anyone older or who might have any health issues.
Branch Manager (Former Employee) – Fort Myers, FL – April 18, 2016
It used to be an amazing place to work (prior to 2004 to 2006), but when Tom Moberly died, everything that made G&K a company dedicated to success through its people began to die with him. Even their mission statement eventually changed from that of people to customers to profit to that of profit forsake all else. That's all I have to say.
Good Salary for the basic work involved
No SMART objectives, too many conflicting objectives from too many "managers" (NOT leaders)
General Labor (Former Employee) – Justice, IL – January 15, 2016
The management at this place is absolutely horrible. They only care about the drivers and their favorites. Difficult to use your own vacation days you earned. Make up BS rules as the year goes on. Can never get OT. You will usually get yelled at. Bewarned, do not apply here. Not worth your time.
