I worked at UniFirst full-time for more than a year

Pros

Some opportunity for advancement, decent pay and laid back culture (family atmosphere).

Cons

Old school in terms of the sales and service processes and greatly needs an overhaul. Managers lack training,keen business acumen and education. The company may need to consider bringing in more M.B.A grads and experienced M. B. A managers who can be a catalyst for growth and overall company (or branch) growth. Additionally, a move toward providing current century sales and methodologies would help improve sales and reduce turnover.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Focus on technological growth and consider bringing in lean six sigmas philosophic ideas to improve efficiencies.

    I worked at UniFirst full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    There are no pros working for this company. They are always ripping off there customers, and there customers are very unhappy.

    Cons

    They lie to you, and a day before you get your benefits and commission they let you go for no reason at all. I did not miss a day and was never late. I worked 12 to 14 hrs a day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop treating your workers like slaves and lying to them about commission.
