    I have been working at AmeriPride Services full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Private company with great strategy functions like big company, still evolving. Solid structure. Great future! Willing to take chance for growth areas.

    Cons

    Wants to be in growth mode but still feeling their way towards a growth company. Needs to evolve middle level management.

    Advice to Management

    Great diverse skillset

    I worked at AmeriPride Services full-time

    Very encouraging and helpful coworkers. Loved the culture and personal feel.

    I really can't think of any cons

    Advice to Management

    Continue investing in your new employees. It was very helpful for me!

    Pros

    The ability to sequence your route to fit either your needs or the customer. Opportunity to adjust your start / finish time.

    Cons

    Management can choose to leave you out to dry if it doesn't benefit them. You have to constantly execute a CYA policy. No overtime allowed even though they expect you to spend extra time at every service stop. Relentlessly hounded to find any way possible to squeeze another penny out of your route...at any cost.

    Advice to Management

    Slow down on the mountain of administrative paperwork. When an $1200 /week account submits a quit letter let's try to make a visit ASAP to that customer to help keep them....not email or leave phone messages.

    I worked at AmeriPride Services (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Pay is okay but limited opportunities to grow income.

    Cons

    Job breaks down your body, current and former workers commonly have knee, shoulder and wrist problems. Repetitive lifting over years causes quality of life issues when you get older. Company is heartless in supporting people who have broken down bodies from the work.

    Advice to Management

    You can not reach the bottom line goals you set without leaving a trail of broken down bodies in your wake.

    Fire your CEO Bill Evans, and go buy a clue!

    Pros

    they pretend to care and embrace their values

    Cons

    don't ask questions as they will work behind your back to let you go. They just let a Senior Director go that promoted the company vision and had the best results compared to his peers. I may be next?

    Advice to Management

    listen to employees that care as much as you do as you don't have every answer. Those that don't want to change will complain the most.

    Pros

    People were nice. Other than that, I can't give any benefit.

    Cons

    Compensation was awful. Treated like an idiot. Job description should have just said "data entry".

    Advice to Management

    Consider that not all your employees are high school drop-outs.
