    Management is so frustrating hitting your head against the wall gets better results.

    I have been working at Crown Uniform & Linen Services full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Family owner almost 100 year old company. Reputation in MA and NH is very good, CT is not there yet.

    Cons

    GPS in car to track every movement. Management prevents success. No communication. Training very substandard. Benefits horrible. No days off. No flexibility.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The relationship between sales and sales management/support should not be adversarial! Learn to communicate with your crew. It is your job to make the sales process easier!

    I worked at Crown Uniform & Linen Services full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are good. People are wonderful. CEO is a true gentlemen.

    Cons

    Over the last few years, the working environment has become challenging. You can no longer be yourself, everything is so PC, it is crazy. Doesn't make for a pleasant work day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To acknowledge your employees upon entering a room. Nothing says you are "nothing" when the President, VP or GM walk into an office and completely ignore you.
    Not to micro manage your employees. If you feel they aren't doing what they are expected to do, let them know or just fire them. But let them do their job, 100%.
