I have been working at UniFirst full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

- Commitment to quality
- Family culture
- Good support from management
- Lots of opportunities for perks (team lunches, sales contests, sales blitzes, etc.)
- Lots of tenure among employees in all job functions across the board

Cons

- Base salary is a bit low for industry
- Turnover in sales is high

Advice to Management

Offer a higher base salary and you won't scare away so many quality candidates that are experienced sales reps, who probably think this is an entry-level position when it is not.

    I have been working at UniFirst full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Achievements and hard work acknowledged.
    Upward and lateral mobility.
    My opinion matters and my work ethic is matched by upper management.
    Compensation, car allowance, stocks and health benefits.

    Cons

    All locations are not run the same.
    Service teams and sales teams need to work closer together.
    Don't allow mediocre middle managers to remain in position. Have clear and measurable expectations to get them on the right path or out the door.

    Advice to Management

    Cross train service and sales teams at the same meetings. Get more involved in "the trenches".
