Pros

You will get exceptional benefits at Cintas. Also, in sales their expense reimbursement is pretty good. Car allowance...etc If you are a male you will stand a pretty good chance for advancement. A lot of females here just will not be hired on as managers.

Cons

Some of the downsides of Cintas...spartan company. They will do anything to benefit Cintas. Although give you good benefits and pay decent there will be things that will make this job short lived. Their sales activity required is just ridiculous. They require you to do so much as a sales rep that it will send you onto the next job rather quickly. This is definitely is a stepping stone job, and will be a great resume builder for anyone's future.

Advice to Management

Senior management can be shady. They have been instilled with principles of "honesty and integrity", but don't always carry those out. I think that they should definitely work on being more consistent of what they expect and also setting more attainable realistic goals for the sales force. I feel as if goals are set so that sales reps cannot attain them, and they will move in new hungry employees who are willing to do exactly what they ask.

    Pros

    Great benefits package with 401(k) and stock purchasing options.

    Cons

    Pay is dismal and does not take into consideration education level. Employees with no degree, Associate's degree, and MBA all start out at same pay rate which is tough to justify. Education is pushed by senior managers for advancement, but the company is not willing to offer tuition assistance or repayment. When education is completed there is no real recognition given or increased opportunity for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Get with the program with regard to salary. If you wonder why turnover is high, most of the reason is the salaries being much lower than similar jobs with other companies. Sometimes it is better to get off the dime and pay someone what they are worth rather than sticking to some ridiculous notion that all "partners" start at the same pay for that position code.
