I have been working at UniFirst full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

I can see where this job has it's perks, their benefits package, the pay really was't to bad.

Cons

Lacked appropriate training, very disorganized, although it does take a long time to get out in the field it lacks direction and emphasis non important materials. Sales management was awful, I felt like I was in kindergarden receiving punishments the majority of the time, ridiculous. They are on your back, monitoring, and critiquing everything. I've never quite a job so quickly, this was a train wreck.

Advice to Management

Terrible sales management. I have previous sales experience, and the women at my location was awful. She was condescending, argumentative and wasted a lot of my time and money. She would have me drive and hour and a half for odd reasons, that made no sense for less then a five minute meetings to drive back an hour and a half right after. She was disorganized, and would become aggressive. She lied, and was wrong about a lot of things, and would become aggressive when those things were brought to her attention.

    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.
