    Pros

    G&K likes to promote from within so there is great potential to move up in the company. Compensation is fair at the bottom and very good the higher up you are in the ranks. Drivers are paid based on the size of their routes and the amount of products they sell. Sales blitzes are very common locally and provide extra income if you put in the effort. Great training programs and a growing product line to sell. Very good, balanced company overall. G&K does have a top down structure, but it provides everyone in the company direct knowledge of the CEO's goals and intentions. Things are well communicated from the top down to the bottom.

    Cons

    Some leaders are better than others. Off cycle price increases (which were recently ended) are difficult to explain to customers. High pressure workplace from the route up to the CEO. Everyone has someone to answer to and blame can and often times is deflected to the person's direct reports. Some people act with little to no urgency which can be frustrating. Days can be long (12+ hours).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep improving processes and product selection. Listen to customer concerns and do everything possible to correct them. Differentiate G&K from the other uniform companies by doing things the right way. It may take some time to build the reputation as the honest uniform company, but it will pay dividends in the future.
