    Pros

    Working at Alsco you will always know that you will have a job if you hold up your end of the deal, there is always something to do at the laundry. Co-Workers are freindly and working hard will usually get you up the ladder. Managment is fair and you are treated with respect.

    Cons

    The pay could be better, and the corporate structure has gotten worse over the last decade, it is no longer a small organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do your best to deal with the centralized control that the corporate office wants to push, don't forget about the little guys.

    I worked at Alsco

    Pros

    Salaries commensurate with skill and amount of work. Excellent benefit package. Outstanding training. Opportunity for advancement. Work within designated territories. Quality company with extremely competent employees in Production, Sales, Customer Service and Management. All elements of business plan addressed and revised in detail on an ongoing basis. Technology oriented with environmental issues addressed. Sales training unsurpassed with product knowledge, ongoing sales training and comprehensive packaged sales-training seminar.

    Cons

    Heavy competition for market share from Canadian Linen, Cintas, G&K Services. No Sales Coordinator or Sales Assistant. No residual commissions. Customer Service staff overly busy and not oriented to Outside Sales support. Sales territories dishonored. Outside Sales called on to support Customer Service duties and functions including A/R Collections, Deliveries and New Installations. High turnover (100 Percent) of new hires of Outside Sales staff after 6 months. Inconsistent Job Description. Unfocused duality or subjective interpretation during Performance Reviews.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Outside Sales must be independent of Operations, A/R and Customer Service.
