80 employees reported this benefit
Employees of UniFirst receive paid vacation time.
You accrue per check, 80 hours per year. No excess accrual. After 5 years at the company you accrue more up to 120 hours. You will likely be discouraged from using vacation and your boss will tell you how when they started they didn’t get any vacation in their first year.
Well you don't get many days off and it's very difficult to take a day off.
Accrued PTO. Not much invested in employee.
Wish they would be a little more lenient on sick time off.
No vacation first year. You will be burnt out from working 60+ hours a week with no opportunity to take a day or two off. The week you take off is based off of 40hrs at $17.50 per hour. I was charged 2 hours sick time for going to the doctor for Pink Eye. I still worked 9 hours that day. Office Administrators know you won't make it long, so they treat you with no respect period.
Adjusted upon hire, then after the beginning of the calendar year, two weeks PTO and one week sick.
Vacation is designated based on tenure.
Taking vacation is difficult since there are as few employees as possible in order to get daily workload complete. Never is the best time to take time off.
You are eligible for vacation after one year. You get two weeks after your fist year, but it takes seven years to get your third week.
Standard is two weeks to start but you don't get any vacation time for your first year. Negotiate more time!
