    Amazing management, team, and pay!

    First Aid & Safety Service Sales Representative (Current Employee) Indianapolis, IN

    ProsManagers CARE about your success because it reflects their success.

    ConsWhen routes get too big, they cut the routes down to create a new route. This directly affects your pay because if your route is the one that is too big you lose more customers than other routes and sort of "start over" with a smaller territory, making less commission. You then start building it again over the years until they cut it down again. Cycle continues.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire management from within- hire managers who have been a service sales rep in first aid & safety division for at least a year. Dont hire outside people; it takes too long for them to figure out how we do our jobs. Some never get it.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

     

    Facility Service Sales Rep

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsCintas provides one of the best sales training programs for reps looking to break into B2B sales. Not only that, it's the leader in its industry, constantly growing and adding new products and services and most importantly taking initiatives to diversify it's workforce. Also- Cintas is great at recognizing hardwork and achievement!

    ConsSometimes territories and positions are not divided evenly among sales reps giving others an unfair advantage.
