    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..

    Pros

    Great hours, benefits are nice, paid weekly, and small office.

    Cons

    No one stays here for very long. The attrition for this company is outrageous! In my opinion, the management team is a joke.They do not have leaders, they have "bosses". There really isn't any " formal" training, and the systems they use are antiquated.

    Advice to Management

    In order to stay competitive in this industry, be open to change. Train your leaders better. Corporate should invest in classes such as Skillpath to help develop their management staff.

    Great management experience for those starting work. You'll learn to manage pay and hours, vacation scheduling, problem solving. Fast-paced environment will make days go by quickly. Hard working and respectful employees. Potential to grow within company.

    A fair share of employees do not speak English fluently. Some weekend work is possible during busy periods. Holiday periods are more stressful. Union environment.
