    I have been working at UniFirst full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits, good salaries, great company atmosphere, weekends off and paid vacation time. Great support and positive mentors, with lots of upward mobility for dedicated employees.

    Cons

    Need to master time management, can be hectic, unique company vocabulary and procedures can mean a lot of learning for beginners.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The upper management at UniFirst is great as it is right now. Since starting at the company I have recieved a lot of support from the senior management of the company, they know that the new generation of employees need to be mentored in order to become truely effective and they put forth the effort to make that happen.

    Pros

    just trying to make things better...........

    Cons

    This company should have one undercover boss in its facilities in nh vs its newer shops in the south. Shops are ran like sweatshops supervisors are required to work 30 plus hrs of overtime for free so this makes this company great to work for as a salary employee. Company claims to be about family but the GM doesn't care one bit about anyone but his self. To be a company in the north the low pay for supervisors and employees is dismal walmart pays better. Management looks at employees as if they get a winter out of the dock crew that works three times more hours as anyone else in the company then they can replace them if they quit GM treats his staff with such disrespect that if he worked for any other company he would be asked to resign but yet home office looks at him like a great boss. I would not recommend this company to anyone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat supervisors with the same respect you want for yourself as well as the employees that do your work. Staff and pay like you want to keep employees do not treat them as temp staff if thats what you want then hire temp staff so as to not waste time training them. If unifirst is a family business and cares about employees family then they need to see their families ive never worked for a company that caters to their driver like newborn babies that do nothing more that get into their truck and drive come back leave their truck in a mess and go home with no respect for the guys who make sure they have what they need for their job.

    Doesn't Recommend
