I have been working at UniFirst full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

In my 9 years with UniFirst i have had some of the best Mentors and Support that any person can ask for. I started in sales in a small town and have worked my way to where i am. UniFirst will always promote from within as a first option which means they want you to succeed. Lots of rewards and President's Club is always the Target.

Cons

Not a downside persay but it's a high pressure job and that is why the rewards are high to successful people. Bring your 'A' game or you may not make it.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be in the Trenches with your people and do not try to manage from behind a desk. Help them close business and make money and you will not only be successful but will have a very loyal hard working team that will stick around. Don't ever be too busy for your reps.

    Current Employee - Sales Representative

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

    Pros

    Benefits (health, life, retirement, generous gas allowance, cell phone bill, potential bonuses each month)
    Great Stepping Stone for next role in one's career
    Provide Top-Notch Marketing Literature

    Cons

    Micro-management is an understatement (company will track your location, day-to-day activities, monitor mileage, monitor who you contact, and will confront you about one of these things every week).
