GBC Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback

From Everything.Sucks

General Binding Corporation is an American office supplies manufacturer that makes equipment and supplies for binding, lamination, and other presentation products. The company is part of ACCO Brands. Its headquarters are in Lake Zurich, Illinois. ACCO's brands include GBC, Quartet, Swingline, AT-A-GLANCE, Day-Timer, Mead, FiveStar, and many others.

Shabbir shares his experience with regret, "We bought an expensive large 8 x 10 ft SHED with a semicircular roof covered with a very thin red felt which we questioned and were told it was perfectly suitable and waterproof and strong to do the job. It was installed on a ready laid flat slab floor on 15th oct2019. Within 4 months part of flimsy roof material (FELT) on one side of the shed just flew off, although it was next to a 7ft wooden fence and backed on the garage brick-built back wall, so it was well covered from the elements. We send pictures of the defect and damage to GBC which clearly showed the cheap thin felt we are now told that the felt part of the roof is not covered by them which seems unbelievable. We thought others need to know. Hence this review. We need to re-felt it with a better material as water as started to escape inside. Absolutely DISAPPOINTED with GBC GROUP of company.Didn't expect that. We have clear photographic evidence of this in case someone needs to see it."

Irrelevant (Former Employee) says

"Bad business, poor wages and shocking solo working regime. No support for working parents and no benefits package. Products are rubbish and you really have to work your butt off to sell any of it. Managers are a joke and the HR manager looks like wurzel gummage in a mini skirt. Avoid at all costs!"

Project Manager (Former Employee) says

"New to market. They were working on many logistical procedures from a remote market. They were working on structuring departments in their North Carolina home office to streamline."

Welder/Fabricator (Former Employee) says

"weld, fabricate alumimum truck bodies for fracking industries."

magazziniere (Former Employee) says

"Ambiente di lavoro nella norma. Il capo ha la gestione completa del personale. Poca possibilità di crescita individuale. Il salario è pagato sempre a scadenza con regolarità. La parte più difficile il rapporto con il capo. La parte più piacevole i rapporti con i clienti e la continua scoperta di materiali elettronici e sistemi utili alla mia crescita personale e professionale. Cons: Lavoro nei giorni di festa compreso Pasqua e Natale."

Extruder machine operator (Former Employee) says

"good pay, long hot hours, but got along with everyone and had good benifits Cons: moved"

"this company works with people with disability, they don't pay enough or give a pay race but I admire the work they do and I am in it because I am proud of helping people that really need my help.
