    Pros

    A strong program with great training. A lot of opportunities to learn the business from bottom to top over a period of time.

    Cons

    There are not many cons for this position and company. The interview process is extensive but that is not a con because they will not hire anyone.

    Pros

    You will get the best experience and training that an entry level sales position could offer. The car package and compensation plan is very nice.

    Cons

    Some of the systems are flawed and in favor of the company. If you are trying to get promoted, it may take a very long time.

    Pros

    4 day work week, highest pay in industry. Good benefits. Ability to move up from low to mid level. Very hard to move up beyond that.

    Cons

    Old boys club, post job openings but they already know what specific person they want to fill that position. Management isn't transparent enough. Moderate turnover creates staffing and coverage issues. Always tweeking our pay structure and making bonuses harder to achieve.

    Advice to Management

    Stop changing our pay scale and bonus structure.

    Pros

    Weekly check, benefits, like the coworkers and the 401 k is good because they match it. Working days helps so you have the rest of the day to chill out.

    Cons

    Need to upgrade computer software, always crash, need to offer a more starting pay for the hard work that we do.

    Advice to Management

    It shouldn't take long to move up the ranks in the company. Upgrade computer software, don't show favoritism towards employees who don't work.

    Pros

    Company has requirement that associates must participate with the customer reps. Depending on your level at the company, one must go with a truck driver route and visit with customer. I enjoyed this, but many did not like it. In some jobs, an sales office partnership would count.

    Cons

    Cintas has a dress code that no cotton blends in material can be worn at work. Men must wear long sleeve shirts with ties. No flip flops, or gym shoes. The process was that any employee could bring the code up to an HR rep. The rep would review and bring up to your manager as a warning.
    Name tags had to be worn above waist. These identified contractors from employees by tag color and everyone knew your name. Tag could be pro or con.

    Advice to Management

    Relax dress code.
