    Interview

    I received a call from the headquarters section for a phone interview. Following this, I was moved to a second, in person interview with the plant manager. I was taken on a tour of the facility which they used to gauge my interest in the position further. More questions were asked after the tour. I was notified of a third interview with the general manager in person.

    Interview Questions

    • They were interested in my previous experience and how it can relate to being a production supervisor. Additional questions for which you must be prepared are; why should I hire you? How do you feel you'd perform in a high-stress high-paced environment? Why are you here? What are your goals/aspirations?   1 Answer

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at G&K Services (Boston, MA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Very friendly, was more like a conversation rather than an interview. As soon as I walked in, I was immediately greeted with enthusiasm. The interviewer was a middle-aged gentleman who was very easy going.

    Assistant to Route Delivery Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at G&K Services (Hickory, NC).

    Interview

    HR called me and briefly asked me questions about my resume. Then like a week later I received a call from the Sales Manager to setup a face to face interview. After those three days later the Sales Manager emailed me to set up a time to ride with one of the route drivers. Beware they had me work all day with no pay. Finally, they offer me $12.00 an hour to work for them which was hard to shallow given that I have been a Route Driver for 8 years at another company. If you don't have experience in sales or work experience at a uniform company they will start you out at $12.00 hour and you will be an Assistant to Route Delivery to the Route Driver.
