    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed 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 Employee  in  Denver, CO
    Anonymous Employee in Denver, CO
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed 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.

    Territory Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Houston, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at G&K Services in June 2010.

    Interview Details

    I was working with a recruiter who got me the initial interview, which was over the phone with the HR rep. It was very basic and lasted maybe 15 minutes. She then had me take the basic sales personality test and an aptitude test. She passed me along to the Sales Manager who interviewed me a couple of days after the first interview. The second interview lasted about an hour. It started with very common interview questions which the manager told me were required by corporate for every candidate. The manager sailed through these then asked some of her own questions which were more job relevant, but not extremely difficult. The entire interview lasted about an hour including chit chat time towards the end after I had sort of hit it off with the manager. She scheduled me for a ridealong with one of the Sr. Sales reps for a day later that week. The ridealong was very relaxed, I had a good open conversation with the rep, and did some coldcalling (5 or 10 doors) and then it was back to the office by lunch. I then met with the General Manager which seemed like a formality. They then took me to lunch and the offer was in my hand upon return to the office. The entire process lasted about a week and I started working in less than 10 days total.

    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

    Route Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Williston, VT
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at G&K Services in July 2012.

    Interview Details

    There were two interviews. The first with the Route Manager and the second with the Regional Manager and the Route Manager. They were both great guys and made it easy for me to communicate my concerns and they asked questions in a respectable manner. They showed a real interest in me as a person and sought to find out what I could offer the company.
