Pros

The job did have a decent pay for the type of work that it was.

This company doesn't know the meaning of work life balance.

    I worked at UniFirst full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Well established company with years of consistent growth. The training program is among the best, training team is superb. Great on your resume for future employment.

    Cons

    The pay is not considered by market and if you are on East Coast, good luck getting by. Impossible to attract talent because of it and if you do attract them, they will leave when someone else offers them more money. Managers are grossly underpaid and are not given the freedom to excel unless it's only by using proven failed UniFirst metrics and processes.

    Advice to Management

    Ron Croatti - stop taking $20mm bonuses and actually pay the people that deserve it and maybe you won't continuously lose your top talent. Upper Management, understand that just because it's not done your way does not mean it isn't going to work. The company needs new blood and bad!

    I worked at UniFirst full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The service side of Uni1st is Great. RSR's met the needs of their customers and made the best effort to maintain it.

    Cons

    The Production side was a complete failure- Unpaid workers; Not paying employees over time. Treating its production employees disrespectfully. Management lackadaisical response to fixing problems in the plant and support to its supervisors.

    Advice to Management

    Stick to your words; if you make a commitment, failing to follow through shows any worker the lack of support in the future. Do not lie to employees, specially a production supervisor who has complete trust in you. Do not make career threats to any worker, and expect that person not to take your words literally.
