Over worked and under apperciated

Sales Representative (Former Employee)
Marysville, WA

I worked at UniFirst full-time

ProsDecent training program. Learned skills that will transfer to other occupations.

ConsThey don't give any administrative time. They want you cold calling from 8am to 5pm and you must work on proposals and presentations in your own time. You must also prepare for prep meetings in your own time. Everyone I worked with either worked 60 hours a week or was constently in trouble.

Advice to Senior ManagementPromote someone from sales to sales manager or borrow someone from another location so they understand what is going on. Take a look at your buisness plan and see the huge leaky faucet that is your sales departments.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
