    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at UniFirst (Buffalo, NY) in September 2014.

    Interview

    Was brought in for 3 interviews, including a field exercise. I left early from my current job to show up early and make a good impression. It has been over a week now and i have not hear anything from them, not even an answer to my follow-up emails. These people are hypocrites and do not practice what they preach. Don't waste your time with this 5 step interview process. They clearly have no problem just dumping you in the middle of it.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at UniFirst (Ontario, CA) in March 2014.

    Interview

    There were three interviews with two interviewers and an essay. All interviews required a 2 hour commute (for me), Los Angeles to Ontario. I came to Unifirst with two degrees (from top 20 schools) and 10 years business sales experience from Orkin Pest Control. The first two interviews went wonderfully, the managers seemed to be excited and so was. I met the hiring manager in my last interview and towards the end he told me that he "heard a gay tone in my voice during the interview" he explained his work group is religious and he likes to hire people with the same values and he doesn't hire homosexuals. He asked me was I gay and I, replied yes. After which he ended the interview and escorted me out. The other manager gave this look like 'what's going on' as he watched us walk out. I was in complete shock, I didn't say anything. I've met discrimination before but nothing like that. I will never forget that. I hope my experience helps save other gay job seekers time. I ended up taking an offer from T-Mobile Business. I also recieved offers from AT&T and Aramark.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at UniFirst (Nashville, TN) in December 2013.

    Interview

    Applied online. Called and did a phone interview by the GM. He informed me the branch manager was out but they wanted to speak with me quickly. He told me I would get a follow up call by the branch manger the following week when he got back in. I was able to do a face to face interview the following week with branch manager. I was given a "survey" to go around to local businesses to ask about their current uniform programs. I had to have that done before meeting with the GM the week after. The following week I met with the GM and we went over what I found out doing the survey. I took a personality test Christmas and NYE.
