    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.

    Pros

    Gopd place to start a sales career of you have zero experience. B2B is good to have on your resume.

    Cons

    The uniform plant is 100x better than linen in Oak Creek. As sales, they'll offer 30k per annum plus commission, and you must use your own car for door to door!!! So minus that value from your pay. Best advice, start here. Stay a year maybe two. Then go get a real sales job.

    Pros

    Steady work, timely pay, decent 401k. Sorry i cant come up with anything else to say about alsco that is positive.

    Cons

    No chance for advancement. poor management. under staffing. Low moral. these problems are probably location specific.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider running a fully staffed maintenance department. Actually motivate employees with rewards instead of threats of punishment.

    Pros

    The starting pay was fine. It's a national company, the general manager has aloy if autonomy from the parent group

    Cons

    There was not any consistancy on what was able to be sold. Lots of preferential treatment not based on merit

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    All managemebt should be on the same page. There should be guidelines on who is really in charge
