I have been working at UniFirst full-time (more than an year)

Pros

- Family culture
- Good management support
- Quality products and company reputation

Cons

- Low base salary
- Commission caps at $10K per account
- National Accounts comes in and steals the show if you give them a lead

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Switch up commission structure to be more in the best interest of reps making you the money, instead of in the best interest of the company.

    I worked at UniFirst full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    UniFirst has been a great place to work with acceptable compensation and very good benefits. The schedule is consistent and I rarely had to work on Saturday. The family focus was refreshing and the policies are fair.

    Cons

    Little opportunity for advancement. On the lower end of salary. No clear path to success or vision for the future for the company as a whole. It's hard to get a handle on where UniFirst is going.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop a clear vision and communicate it effectively to your leaders. Then implement plans and procedures to make it happen. Invest in your people with training and development opportunities and make a concerted effort to recruit and retain the best and brightest.

    Pros

    Great training program in place
    Management gives you the tools to perform at a high level
    Promote from within Organization

    Cons

    Like any competitive sales position, there are quotas. If you're not comfortable with that, this job isn't for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing and continue to invest in your employees!
