Current Employee - General Labor

I have been working at G&K Services full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

They'll hire almost anyone. Solid company that almost never has layoffs. They have great benefits. The hourly pay is better at start than minimum wage.They care about safety. They focus on employee retention.I've been there 8 years and some of my female coworkers have been there 20, 30, or even 40.

Cons

They'll hire almost anyone. Very little room for advancement and if you don't advance you won't make more than a few dollars more an hour than when you start as the years go by. This isn't a long term single income household type job. You could get repetitive strain injury from making the same motions day after day.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get rid of the lazy bad employees and treat the good employees better.

    I worked at G&K Services full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Top of the line product and service in the uniform/industrial laundry business.

    Cons

    They are constantly losing to Cintas or Aramark, largely due to name recognition and lower initial pricepoint of the former, and the later's ability to provide a line of porducts that G&K is not interested in carrying.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As unique as your industry may be, it is almost always likely to benefit from a fresh set of eyes and a fresh perspective, regardless of the years of expert experience management may have.

    Pros

    Benefits, sales force, other sales people, no weekends, sales training

    Cons

    Management is a joke well over a dozen people in a short period of time have left sales side. Sales and service huge disconnect. If your looking to get great sales training and then coast until a real opportunity comes along then climb on board. 41k the best case for TSR.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean house this branch has been a loser for 3 years.
