    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at G&K Services.

    Interview Details

    Got an interview through a friend, was quickly scheduled, interview was very basic. Several standard corporate questions, "why the uniform industry?", "tell me about a time where you failed to meet your own expectations" etc. Was scheduled for the second interview with the GM within a week, same sort of deal, very nice guy. Several of the same corporate questions, some small talk.

    Route Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Denver, CO
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Denver, CO
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at G&K Services in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    Applied through a job posting on LinkedIn for the territory sales rep position, but after talking to a recruiter, we both decided I'd probably be a better fit for the route sales rep position. Went in for a face to face interview about a week later which went great. The manager genuinely seemed interested in getting to know the person rather than asking those totally ridiculously questions like, where do you see yourself in 5 years and all that nonsense. The next week I went for a ride along for about 4 hours to see what I'd actually be doing.

    Interview Questions
    • Not difficult, but I was asked why G&K. Just make sure you do a bit of research on the company.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    Position definitely seemed more service than sales related. Would also get monotonous after a while. Plus I did not want to work 10-12 hour days for $36k a year.

    It was a lie. Starting off at salaried 'non-exempt' means you'll never see a dime of overtime, but can expect to put in 50+ hours a week
