Disapproves of CEO

Pros

It is really good base income. They provide a nice car and mobile allowence. Some of the managers are very nice!

Cons

They are liars and don't follow procedures. Customers were dissatisfied and the route drivers con people. Upper management is aweful. The factory workers are treated very poorly.

Advice to Management

Do not lie to cover your mistakes. Too micro-managed and little direction is given in training. Top management needs work!

    Pros

    Great for new sales reps to learn how to sell business to business, good solid work for route drivers, good products, good benefits, good money if at quota

    Cons

    Toxic culture in many locations now (constant fear for job loss), little leadership across company, almost no diversity in managment, slow to implement anything new, does not value education If you are a sales rep it is more important that you do your job their way than reach goal any other way. It is restrictive for those reps who have talent and do not need to rely on antiquated sales tactics.

    Advice to Management

    Leadership needs to rethink its direction now. The world is changing and they are doing very little to get ahead in the industrial laundering marketplace. With all upper management being aging white males with the exact same work experience no fresh ideas enter the company. All fresh ideas from the lower ranks in the company are squashed. It is time the leadership of UniFirst took a proactive aproach to encouraging knowledge and innovation from its employees and embracing the change that comes from it.

    Pros

    Resume Builder if there for 1yr+

    Cons

    Interview process takes about a month. 3+ interviews & give a presentation. Micro-managed. Gotta enter every call in a sales database so they can know where you're at always. Database is a pain. No residual income. HIGH STRESS SALES JOB. Isn't an sales job were you can slack off 1 day a week. TON OF PAPER WORK. Once hired, there's a 90-day probationary period. You have to: Complete-workbook, memorization, 4 presentations Ride w/route drivers for 4 weeks (5am-3pm) Help pick-up dirty linens Sell $250+ Classroom Training LAST

    Advice to Management

    Less Paperwork
