Pros

The short term and long term goals are communicated across the company thoroughly and celebrated as goals are achieved. The Corporate office is fast paced, and high energy with many cross functional projects including sales, service and corporate staff members.

Cons

Change management within the entire company can be challenging. With a large company footprint, generating excitement for new ideas requires buy-in from many different company roles and tenure.

Advice to Management

Keep up the great communication to the entire company regarding team goals, but also communicate the key projects the company is focusing on to help achieve those goals to better facilitate the why.

    Pros

    If you scan through reviews, it is obvious that the latest reviews were written intentionally by HR folks to cover up the honest reviews earlier. Strong benefits department and environmental, commitment to safety.

    Cons

    G&K has no diversity, is afraid to even mention sexual orientation in their diversity statement, has few if any minorities, and has a number of mean spirited executives and leaders. Openness? Usually leads to terminations, of which there are lots.

    Advice to Management

    Read the core values and try to follow them.

    Pros

    Able to meet point of contact and establish good working relationship. Deliver driver position allows one to get familiar with area quickly. Spot bonuses for going above the call of service.

    Cons

    Schedules are too heavy . Early working hours. Having to drive and maintain own vehicle which is usually not road-worthy. Excessive hours not paid. Company doctors not concerned about workers. Wrong people in management. Large box trucks have dangerous blind spots.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees fairly. Lighten their loads and they will be more productive with less accidents
