Easy Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. I 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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at G&K Services (Dallas, TX) in March 2013.

    Interview

    3 step process. Recruiter, Personality test, In person interview If you get past the recruiter part you should be good. They rely heavily on the screening provided by the recruiter. The actual interview is fairly easy. They don't dive into anything crazy just don't try to be something that you're not. They look for smart and coach able people. Check your ego at the door. They don't care about what company you were at before. They will train you with their own sales philosophies. I loved working there. Dallas is an extremely laid back team but very successful. Wish I still worked there.

    Interview Questions

    • Explain your sales process How do you manage your time?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Unless your bringing clients to the table you will start at $39k. You are wasting time if you try to get more money.
