Sales Representative Interview

Sales Representative

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Cintas.

Interview Details – Extensive! Took 4 interviews to finally get an offer. Once you meet the sales manager of the location you are applying at, you'll need to interview with them twice . Afterwards, you'll meet the regional director, which is probably the most difficult of the 4. Finally, you'll have a phone interview with a C-level employee (usually a VP of Sales). Following the phone interview, you'll wait a day or two until you get a call from the manager thanking you for your time and letting you know you'll be hired. Finally, you will need to pass a drug-screen (standard 12-panel) and get a complete background check/driving record check.

Interview Question – Rank Money, Recognition, and Advancement in order of most to least important to you.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – They tell you what you'll start at from a base salary stand-point. You can counter, but if you do, be prepared for a decisive 'NO.' Cintas is a spartan company, and will rarely cave to demands from unproven sales-people.
