    Pros

    The people are generally a cut above the average and there is great support and corporate culture for those who fit the bill (and many do not want to) but the incentives are there for those who work (I doubled my income the day Cintas took over our old company).

    Cons

    not everyone fits the bill & not everyone wants to enough to enjoy the perks of being #1.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect and better retain your top producing talent

    Pros

    The management staff really do look out for you. My first week my manager gave me his 2 year plan for my career into management. Amazing company. Anna is the best HR manager I have ever met, she is super knowledgeable and always has time for you.

    Cons

    No cons as of now. Warehouse gets a little hot a few solar panels on the roof and the could A/C the place a little better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work.

    Pros

    Cintas is an amazing company. I LOVE the Corporate Culture that runs through the veins of Cintas! There is so much opportunity to advance. So many bonus money opportunities! I've never made so much money in my whole life!

    Cons

    Overall, there really are no cons. There are an awful lot of little details in the pay plan that make it not so easy to understand fully. But management there is very patient and will explain every detail until you understand.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't ever forget about Competitive Urgency! Attention to detail!

    Pros

    Managers CARE about your success because it reflects their success.

    Cons

    When 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 ManagementAdvice

    Hire 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.

    I have been working at Cintas

    Pros

    Cintas 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!

    Cons

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