Service Sales Representative Interview

Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Cintas.

Interview

You have to apply online, then you get a call asking some very basic questions, then you get an in-person interview, then you have to come back for a second in-person interview. If they like you they want you to come in to ride along for a day with another SSR, then you get a final interview. If they want you they call you and offer you the job as long as you pass the drug test and background check.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Cintas (Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    The process is smooth. Starting with a phone interview with an HR employee, next to a management in person interview, which if they think you're qualified will give you a chance to have a ride-along (very informative for what this position and the company is). Ending with another in person interview with an upper management executive.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Cintas (Lawton, OK) in July 2017.

    Interview

    It was absolutely the worst experience of my entire life. The do a phone interview, then a week or 2 later you get an interview with a manager, then a week later another interview with another manager, then you go and work a full day's shift riding on a truck and doing work, then you have another interview, and then another interview with the general manager. After all that he told me I would be getting information for a background check and drug screen. Then an email came 2 weeks after that that said they went with someone else. They strung me along for 2 months

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Cintas (Maumelle, AR).

    Interview

    They have a process called meticulous hiring. For this position, I believe there were 4 different interviews from HR to Sales Managers (3) and the General Manager. You are basically proving yourself to all parties involved. This is a team environment but you pretty much govern yourself. Do research on the company and position you are seeking.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    They tried to go back on the pay from the initial phone screening but I held my ground. Don't be afraid to show your worth but do it tactfully.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Cintas (Denver, CO) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Phone screen, 1 hour in person interview with Managers and HR, Ride Along day, final 1 hour interview with GM. Process was straightforward and I always felt informed about the next step in the process. Good people. Seems like there's a fair amount of opportunity beyond this role depended upon performance once in the role.

    Interview

    They have a very meticulous hiring process to help them ensure they are hiring a good candidate. Typically it begins with an interview with a service manager, the safety director, a plant manager, a route ride along with a current SSR Trainer, and finally the General manager. If selected, a conditional offer of employment is extended that is contingent upon a satisfactory criminal background check, drug test, MVR check and DOT physical.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Cintas (Phoenix, AZ).

    Interview

    Long and Repetitive it takes on average about 5-6 weeks to get hired with multiple interviews and a route ride. You will interview with multiple managers. If you make it past the series of interviews you will go on a route ride with a seasoned employee. This allows the interviewee to get a feel for what the job entails and its really just another peer interview in disguise. If all goes well you will have a final interview and then be offered a job, maybe.
