Pros

Management is 110% commited to making you better. They offer many incentives to motivate and reward accordingly. Management constantly innovates new sales techniques and ways to manage the job and finds ways to reduce stress. My managers were always there when I needed a questioned answered. Yes, it is a large corporation but never once did I feel like a number. Everyday on the job is different, it keeps you on your toes. The training is indepth. It's a great position and company to become a well rounded sales representative. The tools for sucess are there, simly utilize them. You have the ability to get everything you want from this job and more. I would recommend the job an entry level sales representative.

Cons

The job can take a toll on your work/ life balance. A lot of time is put in but it is up to you in order to properly manage it. Reaching your weekly numbers is a high priority, this can be stressful.

    Pros

    The training and ability to make a lot of money is there with the right attitude and work ethic. The recruiters that will be aware of you because of Unifirst is great bonus. The pay structure for commission is good as well. For this location, focus on what you can control instead of what you can't. Until they service, Sales and the CSR work out their miscommununication service won't be to much different than Cintas, Aramark and the rest of them.

    Cons

    The Amount of busy work that is focus on takes away from the selling aspect of the business. At this location, there needs to be better communications within sales and service and the CSRs. Resulting in a dropped ball when installing an account. Not good when trying to separate yourself from the competition.For this location, focus on what you can control instead of what you can't.
