    Pros

    UniFirst is a family type of atmosphere and culture. You're not just another "number" when you work at UniFirst. If you're a hard worker, have a positive attitude, and are committed to "doing it right the first time," you will be rewarded.

    Cons

    Outdated machinery. Our location could use upgrades in a couple departments.

    Great local family atmosphere. Training is very detailed. Company is driven to promote. Very diverse customer base.

    Long Hours, covering routes and occasional lack of production support.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to keep the focus on the customer and continue to promote within as long as they earned it.

    Pros

    Great people to work for. Great environment. Great training. Awesome to get extra multiples on your commission a couple times a yr.

    Cons

    If you like your facial hair don't work here. I understand looking professional, but at least let us grow something as long as we keep it looking nice. When you sell something it takes so long to write it up and there is always a problem with the csr's in regards to the order. Takes awhile for your phone reimbursement. Wish we could receive a little bit more commission when we sell something especially on the 5 yr agreements.

    Advice to Management

    All and all great company to work for. Just wish a few of these cons could get looked at and maybe change
