a typical day a work is having stocking with foods, sodas, candy bars, and chips; cookies lunches, and lunches that will be served on breaks, and lunch breaks. I kill time by getting on the phone facebook, and having a conversations. I have learned about the service of serving a person, building on communication skills, telemarking, and selling yourself in order to work in a workforce. the management is very dependable, also with the co workers are very helpful to me during my learning process. the hardest part of the job is adding supplies in your head which is called self calculation. for example, a bag of chips cost 50 cents, and a soda cost 60 cents. this means I have to calculate all the numbers in my head to give people exact changes. the most enjoyable part is counting money at the end of the day.

Assistant (Current Employee) – Tinley Park, IL – March 7, 2015
GPS is a company that you want to believe in but after you start working with them and the rose colored glasses come off, you begin to see the truth. Hard working employees are neglected while the lazy ones get away with murder and are defended. They do not care about their clientele and it shows. Employees are not properly trained and input is overlooked. The management is always in a "meeting" and some sites are often overlooked while other sites are treated well. The hardest part about the job is working for "peanuts" and the most enjoyable is caring for clients when and where we can.
Working Mon- Fri, Benefits, Sick and Personal time
No set breaks, not paid for your work, no employee appreciation
