I have been working at G&K Services

Pros

the some of the people are great to work with.

Cons

Way too much cold calling. Feels like you are starting up your own shop.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need to reform some of the sales positions, Because you cant have a territory removed after you had it for almost a year and then you go there and get people wanting what you have and then you have to tell them you can not help them now because you now no longer go there and you drop customers in the process.

    Pros

    Other than the fact that the turn-over rate is so high due to poor management and you're almost guaranteed your job security, there are no real pro's to working here.

    Cons

    Pay
    Vacation Allowance
    Work/Life Balance
    Benefits
    Mechanical Errors/Malfunctions on Work Trucks
    Lack of assistance from Management
    Various Chemical and Fumes exposure
    Dirty Trucks
    No heat/ac on trucks
    Extremely long hours driving without any breaks
    No time for family/school
    No time for medical needs

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper and Lower management needs to be re-trained in order to effectively run the plan. Better vacation/pay benefits need to be considered to have employees consider staying with the company.

    Excellent CEO, but old cronies at local and regional level are more concerned about image than achieving excellence

    I worked at G&K Services

    Pros

    CEO, Compensation, Product quality
    They have the HR side of things down, but HR seems to run the company. It is an intensely PC environment on the surface, but below the surface it is really rough, and disrespectful.

    Cons

    Unprofessional language
    A lot of people there more than 10 years are resentful of newcomers and try to run them off

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    CEO needs to talk to front line sales people. The games being played are unimagineable.
