Management is awful, leardership is poor, over worked and under paid. Turn over is very high. On average people work here for about 6-9 months. A majority of their customers want to leave, but are stuck in expensive contracts, and receive poor service.

Working for Unifirst Edmonton has been a fantastic experience. The willingness of of the management as well as the other employees to train and help you succeed is more than I've seen in a long time. I find Unifirst has a balance view when it comes to work and family shown by having evenings and weekends off. My position of Route Sales Representative is physical yet rewarding at the end of the day. The amount of money to be made is reflected by the effort put into this position. If your looking for a job that can turn into a career that you can be proud of, l would highly recommend a position with Unifirst.

Unifirst is an okay company, great way to get some sales experience. The salary is not that great and the commissions could be better as well. Some locations have incredible management teams and others really need to work on theirs.
