Pros

You get great health benefits. Med, Vision, Dental

Cons

Upper management micro manages A LOT. It's all about the numbers not performance or how hard you work. You cannot hang out with any other employees outside of the job if you are in management. NO FRATERNIZATION. Most employees believe relationship building is good, not here.

Advice to Management

Positive reinforcement is something that you have really forgotten. When you get knit picky about everything, you make everyone miserable and no one wants to work for a place like that.

    Pros

    GFS is a family owned company, and the family not only cares about the business, but is deeply involved in it. It is a growing company that cares about it's employees. Because of the growth there is room for opportunity. The culture and people make the company what it is.

    Cons

    GFS is a huge company and is conservative, which is good and bad. The salaries are not aggressive, but it is a stable environment.

    Pros

    None I cant think of a reason to work here.. Wish i never took this job.

    Cons

    Well your co-workers are in control of your bonus from secret shops. So if you work for them and your co-worker screws up it will cost you money. If you want hours you will have to almost beg for them from management. If they don't like you they will give you 4hrs a week and it would be at the worst time they can find. They want you to learn other aspects of the store and put you in jobs that you don't like or feel safe doing. As Long as you work for them your going to be treated like you don't matter. They have company meetings that are pointless and waste your time and yes you must come to them. They Have ZERO respect for there employees and they want All Star Employees but they pay the least. I can go to any other grocery store and make almost 30% if not 60% percent more money an hour. They talk about family and core values. I have seen better values at a corner store.They make it where you are sick till your stomach to come to work. They want you to work the worst hours and give you the least hours. Also as soon as i can i am finding another job.

    Advice to Management

    Yeah Pay your sales employees more money and stop making us jump threw hoops and begging for hours and get rid of the bonus program and give us pay raises Also GIVE EVERYONE ONE EQUAL HOURS..
