I have been working at Alsco

Pros

Conveniently located,
 The ladies at the iron that I was assigned to made the best of it.
Its a job.

Cons

The work is mind numbing and back breaking.
The noise level is Loud, very loud.
The heat in building is miserable.
The intercom is louder than the fire alarm. No real concern for safety issues.
Maintenance is minimal and begrudging.
 There is no incentive to do a good job,raises are not performance based,
Closed union shop that you pay union dues, out of minimum wage.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If you know that X amount of product needs, to get out that day then make sure that product gets to the wash isle, before 2:30 in the afternoon.check the tickets. Make sure that the product that is needed, gets washed, so your people can get it out in a timely manner, insted of makeing the people at the end of the line work over time with out breaks, Just because there was a failure to processes the product in timely manner at the begining of the process.
Stop stomping around like someone kicked your dog. Treat your workers with respect

    I worked at Alsco

    Pros

    Background in the linen industry or restaurant industry is gained. Beyond that unless you are willing to relocate to their choice of any where in the country you will really not be moving upwards.

    Cons

    Poor communication, sales commissions depends on 8-12 week pay out on products sold. Average item revenue for company weekly $2-3.00 not a lot to build up commissions with.
