    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at UniFirst (New York, NY) in July 2019.

    Interview

    It was a straight forward interview as i met with the sales manager and branch manager and went over the my resume and the job details. A few hours later, I received a call from the sales manager to invite me back for a full day ride along with another territory manager to get an idea a daily routine. After the ride along was over, the sales manager called me later that night and ask me my thoughts. I expressed my desire to go forward with the position and be part of the team. The manager ask for 3 character references (2 personal and 1 professional that he will contact.
