    I worked at Alsco full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The Milwaukee plant was well organized and efficient. Uniforms and service were better than competitors bar none.

    Cons

    Pricey service. Low base pay. Be ready to work your buns off to make up in commission what you're used to getting paid.

    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.

    I have been working at Alsco full-time for more than a year

    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

    I worked at Alsco full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Any pro that could be shared is the fact that there is a company car attached to the position.

    Cons

    There is no structure to how information is passed down to customers. There tends to be little to no accountability, therefore, it is hard to change a decaying system that's in need of an urgent overhaul.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better communication and trust in the managers to execute the mission and purpose of their office. Some sort empowerment for managers to resolve customer issues would help limit customer frustration and distrust in the company.

    I worked at Alsco full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Finding another job and getting out of this pathetic excuse for a company

    Cons

    Everything is a con. Pay, unaffordable benefits, backbreaking work, terrible work environment. management,, no room for growth, no raises, no reason to want to do anything other than what you have to do to keep your job. coworkers are terrible, work conditions even worse, broken down trucks, petty cheap conmen owners, need I go on?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep your job at ALSCO. Nobody else would hire you to manage anything. You couldnt manage your way out of a wet paper bag.

    Keep allowing each business to make their own decisions as you presently do. Best laundry company in the business to work for.
