Job security within service department
Branch Manager (Former Employee) –  Ontario18 February 2013
Service department is a great place to start to work through the company as you are able to understand the dynamics of the company from the ground up.

Management is not always on the same page with one another, as UniFirst is a US based company it feels as the Canadian market is alwasy thought of last when it comes to marketing strategies.
Pros
advancement
Cons
difficult work & family balance

Well organized
Warehouse worker (Former Employee) –  Woodstock, Ontario27 December 2012
A typical day at work including sorting laundry and unloading and loading trucks. I learned how to become a much quicker, more efficient worker. The management is well-organized, efficient, and very friendly. The hardest part of working at UniFirst was learning to pace myself. I most enjoyed the satisfaction of a job well done.
Pros
good benefits, lunch truck on site, friendly people
Cons
not enough work, dealing with insulation-filled laundry

Unifirst
Outside Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Saint John27 September 2012
Your only as good as your next sale. Company needed to spend more money on branding itself. Hard to sell their products in Canada especially on the east coast where your customers never heard of the company.
Pros
free lunch with the boss.
Cons
paperwork
