They are very raceist. I was called by many racial slurs that was not my name. Would not advise my worst enemy.

Hello, I am terribly sorry to hear about your experience at UniFirst. It is very uncharacteristic of the organization and is not tolerated. I was wondering if you were able to have a conversation ... More

    Pros

    Coworkers, and the job itself is great.

    Cons

    Management needs training in management. The service is terrible at this branch and the reputation is well known.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat people equal. It's ok to like some more than others but at least at work treat them equal. Also teach them product knowledge. 5 weeks of teaching them how to say "How does that make you feel" is ridiculous, and 1 more thing...quit cussing at them at meetings. How unprofessional is that??? What kind of moral do you expect talking to people like that !? Hopefully all branches aren't like this one. I find that hard to believe.

    Pros

    The company training is probably the strong things that the company has going. It does a ok job in preparing you for the field

    Cons

    Their approach to attracting new customer is to promise the world than we will screw them. The contract is nicely written for UniFirst to take advantage of customers. However, Unifirst is no difference than other companies in this industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The location of where I worked has MAJOR problems in local management and regional sales manager. There has been numerous sales representatives pass through there that stayed less than a year on the job. The blame is always placed on the representative. It is pretty easy to conclude that the management skills are poor. The regional sales manager is over his head and lacks skills to manage. But, he does a good job kissing upper management rears. It is time for changes at this particular location
