Service Sales Representative Interview

Service Sales Representative
Hammond, IN

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Cintas in March 2014.

Interview Details – This interview was a 5 step process. I met with HR, then the service supervisor, after that was scheduled a ride along. Everything was great up to this point and I was gaining confidence after my ride along. Then at that point I meet with the manager trainee took my assessment then met with the general manager. The assessment was a bunch of simple questions about you're personality. Everything was great and smooth and I got great feedback from everyone I interviewed with. The most nerve racking was with the GM but it was pretty simple. They asked questions like tell me about a time you had an issue you didn't case and what you did to resolve it, and tell me about a time you got a customer to buy something they wouldn't normally buy. After a week with my final interview I got a rejection email. I would had really liked to work for this company and see myself grow within. On to the next one I guess.

First Aid & Safety Service Sales Representative Interview

First Aid & Safety Service Sales Representative

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Cintas in February 2014.

Interview Details – *Long, Detailed, Non-Sense Process* Cintas called me for a position that was open and felt my skills would be a good fit. I did not apply for the position but I did see it would be a better career choice for me so I scheduled a initial phone interview. Passed the phone interview then was told I had to meet the sales manager. The interview was a scripted, star format interview. She then passed me on to do a field ride with the guy that I would be replacing. After the field ride, was passed on to meet the GM. Same format as the sales manager's interview. To be honest, I think its the same questions, just in different words. Then was passed on to meet the Director of the FA&S division. This was more of a "get to know you" interview with no hard questions involved. He tries to break you down to see if you can survive the questioning. After that, was asked to provided references. This was the last time I heard from them. A complete waste of time!

Interview Question – Very easy questions. All STAR format.   Answer Question
