    I have been working at G&K Services full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    They'll hire almost anyone. Solid company that almost never has layoffs. They have great benefits. The hourly pay is better at start than minimum wage.They care about safety. They focus on employee retention.I've been there 8 years and some of my female coworkers have been there 20, 30, or even 40.

    Cons

    They'll hire almost anyone. Very little room for advancement and if you don't advance you won't make more than a few dollars more an hour than when you start as the years go by. This isn't a long term single income household type job. You could get repetitive strain injury from making the same motions day after day.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the lazy bad employees and treat the good employees better.

    "Top down structure. There is a "G&K Way" from which you can not deviate."

    Pros

    This is by far the best uniform company in the business. They have the best systems and service and truly try to form a partnership with their customers.

    Cons

    Too much reporting and busy work that takes time away from customer support. You must have an operations focus and be willing to conform to the top down structure.

    Advice to Management

    The old adage "Hire good people then get out of their way.", is good advice. There are so many people who can contribute but there is little trust between the corporate office and the field.
