A great, fast-paced place to work
Route Service Representative (Former Employee), Bossier City, LAJanuary 3, 2015
Pros: great benefits
Cons: trucks always break down leaving you stranded for hours
A typical day starts with a check of all product and clothes that may need to be delivered before you start your route. I've learned the importance of maintaining a strong relationship with customers and how to make quick decisions. Management was very helpful in every endeavor and made sure we made as few mistakes as possible. The hardest part of the job is having to explain to customers why their product is/will be delayed. The most enjoyable part of the job is having your customer personally call your supervisor and tell them what a great job you're doing.

Typical office administration and customer service
Office Administrator (Current Employee), Ladson, SCNovember 23, 2014
Data entry, customer service, AP/AR, Good work environment. The most enjoyable part of my job is being able to get everything done. I am the only clerical person so it can be a bit challenging to get everything done. At one time, this office had two clerical people. Collections are my weak point. I can do it, but I just don't like to.

I enjoyed working with the employees and staff. I really miss them alot.
Supervisor (Former Employee), Barnwell,S.C.October 15, 2014
Pros: company has a great benefits package, vacation and sick pay, 401k
Cons: do not know of any
I was an employee of theirs for 30 years. I started out as an Machine Operator then I got promoted to Team Leader in about 10 years and promoted to Production Supervisor years after that. I enjoyed meeting new employees and training them. The employees I worked with their are hard workers and I got along real well with them. I made them feel comfortable and let them know they could come talk to me about anything. I enjoyed working at Unifirst it was a fun place for me to work and work we did especially during the outage season we worked long hours but it was worth it I encouraged the employees if they got tired and let them know if you need to go out a bit go ahead. They would tell me how much they enjoy working with me cause I was not like most Supervisors that meant I understood them cause that is where I got started as a Machine Operator. I hate I got laid off due to lack of work but I was not offered another position I was willing to take a cut in pay but it was not an option for neither Supervisor. The job I done was not hard I really enjoyed it and for it to end the way it did I am full of emotion.
