    Pros

    I've worked for G&K services for over 6 years and have seen my share of changes. What I can say is we have strong leaders that believe in open conversations and following our core values of our Customer Promise. Every company will have challenges, but when you look at the overall direction and big picture of this company I am pleased to be part of the success. I have personally brought people into this company, and will continue to.

    Cons

    Sometimes long hours , and people that don't share our core values that just consider this a job..
