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

Pros

Senior level management/owners are very motivational and really believe in the product and employees.

Cons

Specific sales managers make it a difficult place to work with lack of support and bias that simply should not exist. The average Sales Manager last about 9-14 months. The average Sales Rep last about 4-8 months. I made it 2 years and 1 month. If your on the Service Side and good friend on Ken Forbus the General Manager out of Wichita you will succeed. This is a Service Company not a sales Company.

Advice to Management

Sales managers need to be reviewed regarding their management styles and corrective action should be taken when a manager uses intimidation tactics rather than support and training to accomplish sales goals. If you have a manager cause I am on 4 managers in 3 years.

    Find a way to reduce, or hopefully eliminate, all of the shortages.
