    Former Employee - Internal Auditing in Salt Lake City, UT

    I worked at Alsco as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Everyone was very friendly and helpful to me, even though I was just an intern. I also gained knowledge of internal auditing and accounting in general, which was interesting work experience. I was also paid well.

    Cons

    The work was very monotonous, but that is because I was an intern. I would guess that other positions are less tedious than the work that I did.

    Pros

    Opportunity for growth, steady employment and great group of people to work with. From Jim Divers in Salt Lake to the janitor at our branch. Alsco takes their time with the hiring process and they genuinely care about their employees.

    Cons

    The Unions! Union members get caught up in the whole "me, me, me" and forget that we are all (management and owners included) in the business together. Consider having end of day production/service meetings.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be consistent with union write ups. Set precedent and follow through.

    I have been working at Alsco full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    It seems to me that the upper management cares deeply about its employees. Here at the Branch level, they are concerned about the bottom line, but that is inorder to keep the work force steady and to avoid lay offs and downsizing rather than lining the owners pockets.

    Cons

    Plants that require Union membership, unions are so outdated, and unnessasary.
    For the most part, they enter a plant only when the need to negotiate a contract, then they make the work force feel good by buying a few pizza's and selling them a line of bull that the majority buys into, then disapearing and sucking the dues out of poor production people like me.
    The rules and work rights are already in place by goverment rules. so what does the union do for me? nada!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be procactive and keep growing the business to keep employees jobs.
    push affordabe benefits to employees and their familys. And Communicate company needs and goals to the entire work force, not just the management.

    Pros

    always given something to work for. If you perform you will be rewarded. Family like atmoshpere. Can talk to management if you need to about anything. Overall great place to work that is involved in the community and there for its employees.

    Cons

    My job in paticular can be very time consuming which means less time at home. i get tired alot from kickin ass all over our competition, so if we could not be so awesome that would help :)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    my feedback as an employee of alsco to my management would have to be thanks. Thanks for all the opportunities that you have provided for me and thanks for the rewards when i meet my goals. and just for being there in tough times for more people than you know.

    Former Employee - Route Service Representative in Indianapolis, IN

    I worked at Alsco

    Pros

    Potential to make as much money as you try to make. A very independent job, no boss looking over your shoulder, you are out driving a delivery route, so the only time you have for a boss to hawk over you is before you leave and when you come back. But if you do the job, you can get in and out, and have a stress free work place.

    Cons

    Well the weather is a big part of it. Snow/Sleet/Rain you have to deliver the product. Also, you are encouraged / rated on your upselling abilities. It's kinda awkward at times, "Hey Customer, would you like to smell our new Mango-Tango Urinal Cakes?"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Well, there is very little potential for promotion. That isn't saying that your pay won't go up, it's just saying that after driving a loud truck for a few years, you might be ready for a new working environment, which means a new place of employment.
