Careers at GFS

We are continuously in search of talented, ambitious individuals to join our team. We aim to provide our employees with every opportunity to make their mark on the company and find their niche along the way — whether in a production, field services or office position.

Why GFS?

Our greatest strength and the reason we have been successful is due to the contributions of our employees. This is especially true for a company of our culture and size. Although a large, growing business — with more than 400 employees — our heart remains rooted in small-town, homegrown values.

GFS Make Your Mark

Located in the heart of Western Wisconsin, our company headquarters in Osseo is a short, 20-minute drive from Eau Claire and two hours from Madison and the Twin Cities in Minnesota. Our employees choose to live in many of the surrounding cities and towns of varying population sizes — perfect for people who want to get away from the hustle and bustle of major metropolitan areas while still taking part in major events.

We are actively involved in our community, participating in events and fundraisers for local causes. We strongly believe in giving back to the community that continues to support us.

OUR VALUES

Our core values — family, respect, partnership, integrity and improvement — define our company culture and guide every aspect of our business, including our employees. We believe that every employee “makes their mark” on a company and should be empowered to make decisions and have an impact on our business. Our dedication to continuous improvement and growth translates into career opportunities for employees who seek additional opportunity.
