Featured Review

Former Employee - Senior Sales Consultant

I worked at UniFirst full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Excellent benefits as well as a great environment to work. I really enjoyed competing with others locations every quarter. The Branch manager and Sales manager was always ready to jump in to help you... in any way possible.

Cons

Waiting on contracts to be up from the competitive 🙄 to earn their business. Have fun winning them when that time came up

Advice to Management

Continue to coach and train your staff to be successful! Keep up the great work guys..

Current Employee - Accountant

I have been working at Lifewave full-time for more than a year

Pros

LifeWave is a great company with very friendly and knowledgeable employees and family feel caring atmosphere. Great company culture and self-motivated working environment. All the executives are... highly communicable. LifeWave also provides generous health insurance plan with no/minimum cost to its employees. I much enjoyed working here so far.

Cons

LifeWave has offices around the world especially in Europe. Therefore, communication with employees in foreign country offices is not as easy as that in the local office.
