    Pros

    Very good at training. Always on-going.
    Most of the people that you work with are great people to be around.
    Great Benefits
    Good Car Package. They pay your car insurance if you are in sales.

    Cons

    1. Upper Management does not care about you, they only care about what you are numbers are
    2. Relationship between service department and sales department is terrible. LACK OF COMMUNICATION!!!!!
    3. Always running out of product,
    4. No residual commissions for Sales Rep. Paid only on first invoice.
    5. 100% cold calling. Very poor at providing leads.
    6. They call themselves SPARTAN but are really CHEAP!!!!!
    7. With the economy of the downside, they are expecting you to sell more while increasing their prices.
    8. Always raising their prices on their current customers, as a Sales Rep you will get calls angry customers complaining about the increase. You do not get any compensation for dealing with current cusotmers. Customers get no warning on the price increases.
    9. You are trained as a Sales Rep to say if you have a problem with service give us one chance to fix the problem, if Cintas can not you can cancel service. It does not say thay ANYWHERE in the contract. It say's REASONABLE AMOUNT OF TIME. Does not say how long. They will send the customer a buy out letter to scare them into staying with them for service.

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach, come up with some type of residuals for Sales Rep on the Account they sell. Have a better lead system in place.

    Current Employee - Sales in Philadelphia, PA
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    - Industry Leader
    - Career Mobility (geographically)
    - Expense Reimbursement is fantastic
    - Did I mention Industry Leader...because they will...constantly.

    Cons

    - Dress Code
    - Hours of operation (5am through...the rest of your life)
    - Very Political
    - NO training for mid-management
    - Disconnected Compensation plan
    - Super outdated regarding technology (don't expect a laptop)
    - NO residual for salespeople

    Advice to Management

    1. Ditch the suit and tie, midwest, retired US Marine mentality - honesty and dress pants is enough these days...besides, We're not bankers, we're selling work shirts and carpets.

    1.5 - embrace the term TELECOMUTE - after all, aren't we supposed to be spartan??

    2. Spartan has transformed into cheap. Start upgrading facilities and tools quickly, to meet your claims of being a "World Class" company.

    3. Tell us where we're going, because NOBODY seems to know.

    4. STOP killing us with safety...we're so focused on safety you'd think that's what we sell.

    5. Eliminate overlapping scorecards between operations and sales - it's killing morale, fueling non-sensical decisions at local levels and causing new employees to wonder whether or not we know how to run this company in the first place.

    6. DO SOMETHING with the document shredding division...apart from reaping gobs of revenue and chincing on sales rep comp plans.
