Current Employee - Route Sales Representative in Wisconsin Rapids, WI

I have been working at G&K Services full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Pay is Great and you earn every penny! RSRs are the front line contact to the customer. A strong work ethic and Great Service tends to be well received. That along with strong customer relationships will help create opportunity to grow the route and build strong returns in commissions.

Cons

Long hours, very physical work.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Help you RSR's balance their careers with their home life. This could be achieved by route consolidations and more RSRs in the field on the branch level. The best RSR's tend to be home less and at work more. Helping them achieve this balance will certainly increase department
 moral.

    Former Employee - Territory Sales Representative in Houston, TX

    I worked at G&K Services full-time for 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.

    Current Employee - General Labor
    Current Employee - General Labor

    I have been working at G&K Services full-time for 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.
