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

    Pros

    Fast paced and exciting. Got to work in several different areas and learned a ton! People I worked for great and pay and benefits were solid. Company is regional so had to leave when I moved south.

    Cons

    Sometimes had difficult hours and pressure to meet deadlines. Working outside in the winter wasn't fun either.

    Advice to Management

    When I move back up north hire me to be a manager so Unitex will be even better!

    The uniforms ,three days off but no weekends off for about eighteen months to two years of working with the company

    Cons

    No care or respect for the drivers,very stressful , will write you up on anything possible even if you are hurt due to management

    Treat your drivers better to avoid a high turnover rate ,stop stressing the drivers and give them some weekend time for their families

    I have been working at Unitex full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The job duties are easy. There are really no other pro's to working for this company. Terrible company to work for...

    Cons

    Long hours, low pay, work overtime and not get paid?! mandatory overtime, no time off, union does not do anything to improve the workplace and simply collects money every week, management is the worst I've experienced in years. Favoritism and discrimination every day, management abuses power and "disciplines" simply as a show of force with no true cause or reason. Inadequate tools and outdated or dangerous shop equipment, extremely hot in the summer and inadequate ventilation, building is falling apart (floor and roof collapsing) very dirty and disgusting and there is rampant cross contamination... The list goes on and on and on. I could write pages on this company. If you value you time and yourself as a person SKIP SKIP SKIP working for this company. Seriously I regret working for Unitex every time I punch in. 100% SWEATSHOP

    Advice to Management

    Management doesn't believe in taking advice

    I have been working at Unitex full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Brought in from a Telecom AE 2 years ago. Let's just say, I went from from a telecom with an unattainable quota and constantly changing commission structures to a place with a a very fair quota and a commission structure that has been the same for 7 years! I get a great base and am making great commissions. Meet with the CEO every week - he knows my name and the name of my wife! Says good job. I've never gotten that before in my 15 years of sales exp.

    Cons

    Some may consider working out of a home office a challenge - but for me it works really well.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up! 100 years of service!

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

    Pros

    They are always hiring drivers, the trucks are mostly new, the Newburgh, NY facility was recently built and is clean and modern.

    Cons

    Management at Unitex has a policy of making sure truck drivers feel as though they are always failing to deliver. It's never enough, no matter what you do, and you are always being watched with room for improvement. There is ALWAYS something with these people. If you show up over 9 minutes before your shift starts and punch in, you're cited & reprimanded for punching in too early. Drivers are allowed a 30 minute lunch break. *Once* I went past that (34min) when finishing my lunch (after having already completed my entire day's run and being just 20 miles away from returning to the terminal) . Got a call & reprimanded from an angry manager who saw on his computer that my truck had been shut down for over 30 minutes when not at a delivery. I could tell you many more stories like this. If you want to be babysat, go have fun at Unitex.

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

    Pros

    Family owned and operated means little red tape. Everyone works hard from bottom to top. Management is fair and approachable. TONS of upward mobility. Yearly reviews. Company pays 80% of benefits. 401(k). Wonderful sense of culture.

    Cons

    People who come to Unitex don't leave. Luckily the company is growing so there is a lot of room for growth. The hire from within first.

    I worked at Unitex full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The benefits after working there 6 months and the better benefits after working there for a year

    Cons

    The pay is lousy!!!! You are standing on your feet for 10 hours on concrete and having to either sort through hospital soiled linen or feed a machine and make the daily quota.

    Advice to Management

    Raise the pay. $7.50 for a job like that is nothing. That is what you consider slavery

    Pros

    Delivery of product is acceptable as a rsult of hard work by hourly employees

    Cons

    Very little reason to work for a Company where the arrogance of owners and sales people undermine the moral of the employees and their ability to service customers. No communication from top level on down and amongst business segments

    Advice to Management

    provide feedback to sales and serice people. listen to customer feedback on the poor service and indifference of sales managers.
