    I worked at UniFirst

    Pros

    pay check... weekends off.. sort of.. always paperwork to do... insane amounts of paperwork..

    Cons

    impossible to succeed in this company in the sales dept.
    Service is a joke it is never their fault no matter what happens it is the salespersons fault.
    Services loses many of the customers sales works so hard to get and then sales commission is taken back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    They hold their customers feet to the fire.
    They lie to their customers willingly and often and still hold their feet to the fire.
    They care about one thing and it is not the happiness of their employees or the satisfaction of their customers... it is the bottom line and only the bottom line.
    I was in the sales dept and in the time I was there(a little over a year they turned over everybody in the sales dept except 2 salesman and the gm. Even the managers quit because they hated it too!!!! also in that time frame even our most experienced and best rep was not at quota... and what is up with being able to bonus before you hit quota. Quota should be a obtainable number and bonus should be a little beyond that. the
    the whole idea is to make sales managers and sales people work very, very, very hard and only the higher ups enjoy the spoils...
    awful experience. They would say you are on behind on quota and then not offer anything but corporate fodder as to how to get back on track... and anytime they actually had a good manager they were gone in under a year.... a good manager would never stay with this company because it is impossible for them to succeed. They know they have to turn over their whole sales staff every two years and that sales people will not succedd but they still get mad pain when this happens. and they are put thru a heinous amount of incredibly stupid training...
    I am only thankful we were not close to corp office in Mass I can only imagine how much fun that would be!!!!!!!
    absolutely set up to fail!!!!
    they also have to rescue their paperwork process from the 1960's.. what a cluster the paperwork process is.. you have to write the customers name and address on like 20 different forms!!!! ridiculous and yet another reason a sales person just can not succeed!!!!!! no way!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    help your sales force succeed. or at very least if you are going to take the stance that they are very expendable do make them bend over backwards to get the job and then put them thru that stupid so called training program!!!! Revisit the whole bonus/quota system it is the dumbest thing I have ever scene. Once you get done training and get in the field for a few months you realize you will never, ever hit the quota...

    Doesn't Recommend
