    I have been working at Alexander's Uniforms full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Steady paycheck. Hours are ok, but not great. Really, not much positive to say....its a job....

    Cons

    I was hired as a store manager, and spend most of my time on outside b2b sales. No possibility for future promotion. This is a family business.
    If you want to have a career, I dont suggest you apply here...they really only take care of family members.

    Advice to Management

    Stop micro managing !!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Pros

    Pay ok.
    Not much else for positive remarks

    Advice to Management

    Realize that your employees are an asset to the company, not just worker bees.
    All employees need to be thanked and rewarded for hard work and dedication.

    I worked at Alexander's Uniforms part-time

    Pros

    The pay is pretty good.

    Cons

    Very disorganized.
    Very poor communication.
    Lack of vision in the company.
    A lot of mixed messages.
    Poor treatment of employees.

    Advice to Management

    It's pretty shady to target the only visibly LGBT person in your company. Just saying.

    I worked at Alexander's Uniforms full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    This was the worst job I've ever had. There are no pros I can say.

    Cons

    Awful management. The owner does little work and is the worst micro manager ever. No retirement plan, expensive health insurance, little vacation time and you work most holidays.

    Advice to Management

    Just sell the company.

    I worked at Alexander's Uniforms full-time

    Pros

    There are no pro for this job

    Cons

    Was at this job for a couple of years. Over worked, You pretty much do more than what you are getting paid for, You are suppose to do the work of 5 people or you get yelled at for not working hard enough, Make any small mistake and its the end of the world. Yelled at and verbally abused on a daily bases. Get blamed for higher authority's mistakes to make themselves look better.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and not only go by what someone else is asking you, Everyone lies to cover their own. If you want the truth, ask the employee not the higher authority.
