    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at G&K Services (Tampa, FL).

    Interview

    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.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at G&K Services (Denver, CO) in November 2013.

    Interview

    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.

    Interview

    Interview is simple. Have a clean DMV background and be able to pass the DOT physical and drug test

    Negotiation

    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
