    RSR Route Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at G&K Services (Chicago, IL) in March 2016.

    Interview

    I was initially called for a phone interview. After the interview was over I will call today later to do an in-person interview. I really like the way they took the time to ask questions but also listen to the potential candidate. I believe this is the best way to single out better qualified people.

    Territory Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Justice, IL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at G&K Services (Justice, IL) in March 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online a few months ago. I was then sent a form letter to take online assessment, which I completed. I quess I passed because I was sent an email from the recruiter in Justice, Il to set up a phone interview. Now I know why they are always looking for salespeople. (See the numerous job openings in sales ) The woman I talked to was arrogant and got annoyed when you asked her questions about the company. The obviously don't want people who are smart and do research. All I got was one word answers. I know I was not going to make it to their "interview process" based on her being annoyed through the phone interview. The next part of the process is going through 3 more interviews. For a job that doesn't pay well. This is not a six figure VP position or a job with the CIA. Unless you are really desperate for a job, stay away from them. This location has bad reviews from salespeople. The rest of the company seems ok though.

    Interview Questions

    • Why was I interested in G&K. And other generic HR questions you can find online. This recruiter does not know what she is doing. Probably a friend of someone.   1 Answer

    Territory Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Kansas City, MO
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at G&K Services (Kansas City, MO) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online and then had a phone interview. Got invited to come in for face to face interview with Sales Manager. This went well and I was asked to do a project that consisted of me creating a presentation on what they call "The Road to Presidents Club" and go out and cold call around 15 businesses about their uniform program. I removed myself from consideration because I did not feel that their pay structure and sales process was what I was looking for.

    Territory Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Orlando, FL

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at G&K Services (Orlando, FL) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Pretty standard interview questions. Nothing too far fetched. A lot of "tell me about a time when...." Had two people interview me, an older gentleman, I think he must have been the regional manager, and his protege. He mostly took notes and made small talk while she asked the questions. They were mostly professional. At times, it felt awkward and almost uncomfortable the way he was praising her.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about yourself. Why do you want this job? What do you know about the company? Why should we hire you?   Answer Question

    Management Trainee Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at G&K Services (Green Bay, WI) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Very Thorough and engaging, They really got to know you instead of simply asking interview questions. You could feel the culture of the company in the interview process and that was what really made myself want to become apart of the company.

    Route Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Ontario, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at G&K Services (Ontario, CA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online, two weeks later I received a phone call from manager to set up an interview. I showed up for my interview and the building was locked, nobody was there. I called the manager and he asked if I wanted to re-schedule or wait 15 minutes. I chose to wait 15 minutes considering I had left work early that day to attend the interview. I waited 30 minutes in 100 degree weather in a suit for the manager to show up. He sent a Route Supervisor in his place to conduct the interview. I gave the Route Supervisor the benefit of the doubt showing up on short notice, but he had me wait in a storage/office room with no air conditioning for 15 minutes while he looked for the interview question packet. He was unable to find the questions, and conducted the interview without them. He improvised but the interview was short and I was told they would call me back for a more formal interview. I never received a call back, I think they did me a favor. This interview was a waste of my time, money (left work early, gas) and very inconsiderate and unprofessional on the part of G&K Services in Ontario, CA.
