    I worked at UniFirst full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Freedom to plan your own day.

    Cons

    -Phone bock was the most useless "tool". Through off your entire day and really unproductive in setting appointments.
    -Sales executives have the worst plan I've ever seen, basically want you to make fake appointments so their numbers look good.
    -You are threatened by corporate on a weekly basis by not having enough CNA's which they know are fake.
    -Corporate says you are paid to uphold the database, which means you are expendable at any time
    -They monitor your activities so close any gaps need to be explained but you were actually presenting and closing a customer, they wanted activities.
    -Vidcons are the biggest waste of time
    -Every report contradicts one another, there are a million reports
    -They want you to do all your work on your own time, but tell you your not paid for you time but your database

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    STOP Micromanaging people, CNA forms are the worst sales form I've ever seen.

    I did really enjoy the people I worked with, Corporate ruined any positive experience I had.
