Pros

UniFirst is no different than anything else in life. You get out of it what you put into it. If your a hard worker and have some smarts you will succeed. If you want everything to be handed to you this employer is not for you. If you don't have success you only have yourselves to blame. If you felt like your training was inadequate did you ask questions, did you study after hours, did you educate yourself with all the resources available to you, did you truly take the job seriously, was it a job to you or a career? At UniFirst the sky is the limit but if your not a hard worker you need not apply. It is the most honest large uniform company out there to its employees and it's customers.

Cons

The pay is a little below industry average in some positions at the company but it's getting better and the company is constantly growing and making changes where needed to better help their employees in all aspects of their salary and benefits.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep doing what your doing and changing with the times and listening to your ground level employees for suggestions on how to make things even better.

    Pros

    Training process is a good one.

    Cons

    Management doesn't know how to manage people, They all manage activity, hoping they can create successful clones if they all duplicate successful activity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to manage people and realize this truth, successful people will always have successful traits and activities. BUT if you teach the who, what, where and when of the narrative, it does not guarantee a success. When you teach and they learn the who, what, where, when and WHY of the narrative you have opened the door for success. Number crunching doesn't achieve any of this.
