    Pros

    Great sustainability message and product. Great environment.

    Low pay and not enough employees in some areas.

    Advice to Management

    As areas get busier, don't keep loading work on the ones that are there, hire more help.

    I have been working at Unifi (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pay is Good
    Also a good place to work, but not long term

    Cons

    When the work slows down (which it will) you will get fired for no reason
    They will lie to you in orientation, saying they have never laid people off...
    THAT'S BECAUSE THEY FIRE YOU
    Management doesn't care about you
    No Room to advance in the workplace
    Horrible benifits
    Terrible company, especially plant T5

    Advice to Management

    None... because they will never change.

    I have been working at Unifi full-time

    Pros

    Unifi is a great place for a first job in your career.

    Cons

    Poorly managed. With many temporary workers, the culture derived from their presence is a don't care attitude. Many are only there for a paycheck and not there for career development. Also, management is highly unlikely to give much room for you to grow or advance.

    Advice to Management

    Do away with temporary workforce employees and employee quality will increase. Therefore, your product will increase in value and you will earn more income than the funding you intend to save with the temporary workers with no benefits.

    Pros

    The work itself is not hard, but it keeps you busy
    A lot of the people are great
    Wonderful workout

    Cons

    Management plays favorites- missing days, calling in all the time, abusing breaks, using phones on the floor and in the bathroom.... there are several people who do these things and still have jobs.
    12 hour shifts are a bit long.

    Advice to Management

    Be FAIR and treat your employees equally.
