I worked at Gordon Food Service

Pros

The owners, all family, know every employee by name, including their family members.
The owner are not afraid to “rollup” their sleeves and help with the “slugging.
Excellent communication between all employees and management.
Some of the best warehousing employees one could hope to work side-by-side with.
Excellent pay, health benefits, incentive program, and company matched retirement (8%).
Brand new material handling equipment.
Not afraid to try new ideas to help the employees or improve productivity.

Cons

The only “CONS” I can think of, would be the long hours, the freezer is friggin cold, and you must have a car, as there is no public transportation for the area.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I have no advice to offer. GFS Canada is and was the absolute best company I have ever worked for in my 25 years of Warehousing.

    I worked at Gordon Food Service

    Pros

    Benefits were great
    Family Owned Company
    Pay was average
    Work life was good

    Cons

    Did not have much if any input as to who was hired as my assistant managers for the store. I only had one bad experience with this where my new assistant was not a fit and did not work and could not be motivated, but I know of several managers that have said that from day one they knew that their assistant was going to be trouble or was not going to last. Store managers need to be involved in the interview process.
