Wonderful place to work and great benefits!
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Bowling Green, KYDecember 13, 2013
Pros: everything!
Cons: it can be a little boring at times.
A typical day at work consists of standing at the cash register, cleaning and stocking. What I learned is there are some wonderful people left in the world and they work at GFS. The hardest part of the job is staying at the register and not wondering off trying to stock or clean something. The most enjoyable part is the company games we play like who – more... ever sells the most of something gets a prize or the most email sign ups. – less

Productive and fast pace customer service
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Lima, OHDecember 3, 2013
Pros: clean, productive
Cons: little to no break, workload
I would clock in, and go to the back room where I grab items that needed to be stocked in the store. Helping customers with questions about the product, showing product, cash register, ordering items, phone called, slicing meats and cheese, and all other customer services. My management were very understanding and were always their for problems, help, – more... and guidance. My co-workers were friendly and nice, and always willing to help in times of need. the hardest part would be the multiple task going on at the same time. The most enjoyable part of my job is seeing customers satisfied with my work. – less

Classic stock job
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Livonia, MINovember 26, 2013
Being the low man on the totem always sucks. not much else to say. Managers treat you badly but that's because they mostly work with young adults who haven't been out in the real world

Two Faced
IT Department (Former Employee), Grand Rapids, MIOctober 31, 2013
They profess to be a great company to work for which was true in the past. They have grown so large that the family values that they tout are all for show.
Lower management does not have the experience or desire to be good at their jobs, but use you to get the accolades of the upper management.

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
