    I have been working at Jani-King full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    I work in the regional office in sales. I love the people I work with. They are supportive and you feel like you're a part of a family. Every day is a joy to be here. I love meeting new clients and sharing with them the benefits of our services. Almost every business needs commercial cleaning services, so you have a great amount of prospects to speak with. I strongly believe in the company's values, and how they give back to the community. They give 10% of their profits to charitable organizations that I really believe in.

    Cons

    You must meet and exceed your sales goals during the first 90 days. The company is very strict about that. You need to be ready to hit the ground running...immediately.
    There have been times when you wonder if a franchise owner will even accept the new business you bring them once you close a good sale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give new sales employees more of an opportunity to ramp up their numbers (beyond 90 days). You could miss a long-term, profitable employee if you cut him off before he gets a chance to really put good numbers on the books. Also, there have been times when you wonder if a franchise owner will even accept the new business you bring them once you close a good sale.

    Good work environment. Always something to clean or franchise owners to deal with. I would recommend you to take a look.

    Cons

    Hours are hard. If you're in ops then you're on call 24/7.. You have to stay on your feet. Fast paced.

    Pros

    Being your own boss..........kinda....the experience teaches you what not to do. You do, however, receive some compensation. Easy to join if you have the money.

    Cons

    Everything they tell you is a lie! They sell you a dream to get you to put up your money. They are not not helpful to the franchise owners. Training is minimal. Not organized. Very costly!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put yourself in these people who are buying these franchises. They are slaving to satisfy these accounts and making very little money, while you all get rich! Stop lying to these people! Your robbing them blind! They may not be able to do anything about it, but trust, the Lord will!!!!!

    I worked at Jani-King

    Pros

    Company Car. Gas Card. That's it.

    Cons

    You'll get a few leads each week, but most likely, none of them will close because their pricing is higher than the competition. When there is a good lead, even in your assigned territory, your manager will most likely take the lead and you will get $0.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider easing up on the micro management. Allow your sales reps access to the computer system from their own home rather than reporting to the office every day. Share the good leads...don't be so greedy.

    Pros

    A paycheck , nice office, company car, cell phone , i pad, all furnished.

    Cons

    Too many to list, management of master franchiser less than desirable, no career path at all, hard to hit sales goals with all the operational duties required.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the franchise concept and direct hire cleaners, these franchise owners are very complacent and many lack any business accumen and few are hard working in my experience. Payment of 31.5% of all Jani King contracts as a Royality and finders fee is absurdly high % ! Usury ?

    Pros

    People in the company are friendly and there is a good team. Franchise owners are good people, hard workers. There is a lot of networking with customers and franchise owners.

    Cons

    Salaries are lowest in the industry. Managers don’t recognize the worth of the people. Lack of leadership. Greed is their core value, they don’t care take advantage of franchise owners (cleaners), when someone is interested in purchase a franchise they are friendly and pretend they care for the people, all the family come together to welcome the new franchise owners. Once they got the money of the people they treat them as employees and there is no respect for them. They don’t care if franchise owners quit to their business and lost their investments. They lie to the clients and when the customer complaints about performance manager just wait until customer get tired and wants to cancel the contract so they can force the client to pay for early termination. Family run business, so there is no possibility to go to the next level when conflict arises.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value your team. Treat people with respect, pay fair salaries and you will have a loyal team.
