    I worked at Arrow Uniform full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    You get what you put into working here. The co-workers were great and a lot of them are still friends with me. They offer college assistance and love to promote within.

    Cons

    There isn't a closer branch to Pittsburgh. The commute was the only reason I left.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    provide more workshops on leadership, excel and computer courses.

    I have been working at Arrow Uniform full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The amount of control you have over your route is a nice perk. The pay is better than what most people think. The managers are very friendly and rarely talk down to employees. Employees are rewarded for selling performance. Lots of rewards are given for exceeding sales goals. This is a very friendly company.

    Cons

    Work is physically demanding. Poor management decisions are made that impact employees negatively. Higher ups aren't held accountable for mistakes. Patience is tested by customers who can be both rude and stupid at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Website needs to be set up so customers can order shirts rapidly. Sales are often lost because process takes too long.

    I worked at Arrow Uniform full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good spirit of camaraderie and cooperation amongst peers.

    Cons

    Management is spread far too thin, and with little to no knowledge of many of the departments they oversee. Recommendations and suggestions for improvement are dismissed and overlooked. Communication between departments is abysmal, and contributes to processes being outdated and clumsy, and much work having to be re-done. Expectations for the output of most non-management employees is unrealistic and completely demoralizing to the staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Almost a waste to give advice, because they won't take it.
