Great company to work for
I enjoy going to work every day. It's a great place to work and like the people that I work with. There are very understanding and treat every one the same. They are flexible and family oriented and understand that we all have families. When we get to work we have a quick meeting then stretch. Then you get your route and start picking. The hardest part is trying to get done when

others are picking in the same place as you. The best part is trying to get a high percentage so your incentive is really worth it.


whenothers are picking in place as you and slow you down. The best part is hitting a high percentage knowing your inconvenience will be worth it

Excellent company
Former work. This is a great company to work for. Like the old saying, sometimes the grass isn’t green on the other side, I truly miss working for this company, especially now that I really understand the business.

Decent
Wasn't a bad job. Other than management it was a relatively decent job and decent employees. I was fired however because I missed one to many days. I had to call if Sunday night because my grandma was on her death bed.

Gordon is okay
Decent job.never a dull moment. Fast paced. Freezer is the best position. Just wish they'd pay more. So many duties in such little time. Hussle is required.

Good start place overall
Good pay. Decent management. I'd still be there if I hadn't had an accident. They will also give opportunities for drivers coming right out of school.

Cultrue
Culture has changed over the years. There has been a steady decline in culter as years has gone on and the company became more focused on results rather than the people.

No driver safety,People not friendly or working together is very difficult. Leaders don’t follow the rules that is in place for everyone. There is favorable work for friends and family members in the work place.

GFS is a great place to work. The benefits are great.
Gordon Food Sevice is a great place for a career not just a job. Family owned and they really care about their employees. Sales is great if you hustle.

Great Retail Experience

Good Place to Start
Great opportunity for new driver. Wasn't for mistakes I'd still be there. Management has gotten better and the location as a whole. Routes were pretty decent for the travel you completed.

Control of your schedule-mostly
Overall, you have control of your schedule which is great. You need to be able to pivot your schedule consistently due to numerous and consistent out of stocks. This would impact meetings, presentations, prospecting, etc.

Family owned food service distributor
Overall fair company with good benefits. Most departments were paid fairly and were satisfied with their compensation package. Profit sharing at the end of the year was key.

Understaffed/Unrealistic expectations
Never given enough hours to meet expectations. Management spends more time doing associate types of tasks rather than actually being able to build a good workplace culture. Very physical. Women not valued. Sales associates are undervalued and underpaid. Refusal to pay a living wage makes it difficult for managers to get employees who care

Great employer to work at.
Would highly recommend working for Gordon Foods, great place to work at. A great management team along with the rest of the staff members. I've been working for Gordon's for about six months now and i'm well pleased with my decision to work for them.

Great pay!
It's the first job that I could actually see
my pay check increased by the amount of effort I put it. The harder you work the more you make. It's also a great job for a introvert or extrovert because of the work pace.
Pros

Cons

Overall great company to work for. Culture is something other places lack. Management has somethings to improve upon but normally show care in employees. People....the people is what makes Gordon's a great place to work.

Like A Family
I worked for the Gordon family for just a little over a year and it was probably the best employment experience I've had so far in my life. Management is extremely approachable and supportive. Co-workers in my department were more like extended family who watched out and took care of you. Profit-sharing program is incredible and if you work their for 20 years you are almost guaranteed to be a sitting millionaire in the 401k plan. At my DC of 600+ employees the General Manager would walk around almost everyday and just check in with everyone. He would just spark up a conversation about how your weekend was going or how you were feeling. The most humble and down to earth GM I've ever seen. Just an overall amazing company. I can only speak to the Northeast DC but I am sure its similar at the other DC'.

A great family owned Christian company with a culture of integrity, caring and growth oriented
Freedom to learn, grow and feel important. People are what makes GFS great. I would not have stayed at GFS for 33 years if the work environment was not conducive to staying. In today's workplace, people change jobs too often. Not the case here.
