Laborer (Former Employee) – London, KY – June 30, 2017
This place cared nothing about their employees. I guess that showed since they had to shut the doors. Worked 7 days a week, 5 at coyne, 2 at the hospital in which we supplied linen to. Told I was good, had no worries about losing my job and then bam everyone gone!

District Manager (Former Employee) – Syracuse, NY – January 31, 2016
Get there at 4 a.m. look through work orders. Organize my day. Talk to my drivers see if they need me or anything from me. I learned deposits, balance sheets, route sheets and customer service. Hardest part of my job was being gone 60-70 hrs a week from my family. Enjoyable part was weekends off
DISTRICT MANAGER (Former Employee) – York, PA – January 9, 2016
Your growth potential was strictly controlled by your willingness to suck up to the Old Boys. They could do no wrong (there was more than one inappropriate conduct lawsuit settled) but promises made for advancement based on your work quality and dedication were kept or ignored at their whim. The company was top-heavy with presidents galore which financially hurt it. Revenue shortfalls were made up by constantly raising prices or adding new charges to existing customers, often against what contracts allowed. Overall I regret having dedicated two decades of my life to Coyne, only to get screwed on a promotion for which I had been allegedly groomed for years. I worked arduous hours, lived and worked out of town with a promise of "extra pay" for my efforts (which, amazingly, never materialized), and even had my per diems cut because too many upper-management travelers were abusing the arrangements. The most valuable thing I learned was to always get promises in writing from your employer, because in this case they were seldom kept.
Great job with flexibility of start times due to getting kids to school

MERCHANDISING CONTROL MANAGER (Former Employee) – Duncan, SC – November 17, 2015
It started out like it was going to be a great job with good benefits. Then the word of bankruptcy came in to play. This was a uniform rental company and we had some very satisfied customers and the plant in Duncan was really growing.
Merchandise Control Manager (Current Employee) – Cleveland, OH – November 5, 2015
A typical day at work would consist of responding to all emails that have been sent, transferring work orders, ordering emblems, making sure all product is getting out on time. Servicing the customer with the upmost capability.
Making sure the warehouse is properly stocked with enough product to service customers.
Responsible in being a leader to my team of workers.
I've learned that hard work does pay off in the end as long as you keep at it and don't give up you will succeed.
The enjoyable part of the job is when you are able to show and prove to the person that hired you for the position that you can do the job/work.
Route Salesman (Former Employee) – New Bedford, MA – August 20, 2015
This job was the first job in my career. I was able to grow accounts and establish long term customer relationships. Although management was difficult at times we were able to maintain a good working relationship.
