    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Montgomery, AL

    Pros

    Benefits are OK
    Plant Personel work hard
    Quality of Products are OK
    Service is OK
    For the most part, RSR are some of the hardest working people

    Cons

    Inexperience management who like to use intimidation
    No knowledge of what is true customer service
    More worried about getting contracts signed without building relationships with potential clients
    Bordering ethics when attempting to add new clients
    Sale Reps are treated like dirty
    Sales and Regional Sales have very little knowledge of managing sales reps
    This is a low-down industry where there is little difference between the major players. All of them are train to mislead the end user. UniFirst is no different.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the good old boy management team and hire EXPERIENCE Sales Reps and Managers which reputable companies outside of your industry. This excludes car dealership sales and managers(include so called football coaches too!). And if you really want to know what is happening in the market, met and talk with your sales representatives, instead of making decision strictly off of your numbers. Quit blaming and cutting down your competition, because of what I know, UniFirst is no better.
