  1.  

    I loved working for this company, It was by far the best company that I worked for.

    Former Employee - Accounts Receivable Clerk  in  Vernon, CA
    Former Employee - Accounts Receivable Clerk in Vernon, CA

    I worked at AmeriPride Services full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Each and every employee worked together to get the job done. We did not divide ourselves into departments, and worked together as one family.

    Cons

    There was a lot of clean up work, but the end result is what made the job so rewarding.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The only thing that I would have liked more of was cross-training.

    I worked at AmeriPride Services full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good work life balance, very supportive of the sales team

    Cons

    GM's where very difficult to work with. Had to sell customer then sell gm on why they should take the business in lots of cases.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take GM's out of the contract approval. If sales reps are selling within the guideline there should be no rejected accounts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They should review their management hierarchy and the people that hold all the power.
    Iron fist management philosphies are no longer effective in today's digital world.

    I worked at AmeriPride Services full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Free food in the mornings and free lunches...and some nice perks.

    Cons

    Vacation policy was terrible and behind the times. Management was flailing - little or no direction and lack of empowerment to actually thrive and do my job better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve vacation policy. Figure out what is actually contributing to the bottom line. What is going to drive new business and leads and start treating and challenging your employees - too much money and time is spent outsourcing to big agencies.

    I have been working at AmeriPride Services full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Good benefits, Great customers,

    Cons

    Company has lost focus on where the money really comes from, RETENTION !! Of both Good employees and Customers.
    I have lost tract of how many times I have been told " If I can't do it they will get someone who can" Really? I am a career employee! Never sick! High cust retention! Low AR! Mid range sales! This is how they talk to me. That is something someone really wants to think about before jumping in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ok, That sign that says " The beatings will continue until moral improves" That is meant to be a joke, Not a business model ! I suggest someone take a look at the upper management bonus program. The push for new products, Increased revenue, 20% Price increase's, Charges being generated out of thin air only to be credited off. Something is not right! This company has forgotten this is a people business!! Ran by and implemented by people, Serving people! In closing, Where does it stop? If 5% growth is this year, You expect 8% next year, Then 10% Then 12% Then 15% . Greed is good is a line some script writer came up with. Greed will be the down fall of this and many more once great American companies .

    Former Employee - Customer Service Representative  in  Roswell, NM
    Former Employee - Customer Service Representative in Roswell, NM

    I worked at AmeriPride Services full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Depending on the route you get, you are home everyday and weekends off. With good sales and customer service skills an individual has the opportunity to make a very comfortable living. Co-workers are a good group of individuals. Work was physically easy. Make lots of good friends on route. Customers are pretty easy to get along with as long as you take care of them and your honest.

    Cons

    Any one in any type supervisor position seemed to have a bit of a chip on their shoulder. They only seem to really worry and cater to the big account. Vacations and holidays seem to be more trouble than they are worth. I probably would have stayed had my budget been lower. Went from 90,000 a year to a possible 55,000 with Ameripride. Not bad just too much of a pay cut for me.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to focus more on the needs of the actual customer from the smallest account to the largest. The best way for buisness to grow or to die is word of mouth. Take care of your drivers/CSR's they are the ones that need to be taken care of.
