    I have been working at Jani-King full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Almost unlimited prospects and unlimited earning potential. Recession resistant industry. Performance oriented...if you are good, you get rewarded. Professional work environment.

    Cons

    At first I thought commercial cleaning was not too sexy, but every building needs to be cleaned, and a clean building impacts the health of every employee. Met a lot of interesting people.

    Advice to Management

    Opportunity limited to Tampa Bay, Orlando, Birmingham, and Baltimore. Buy more markets!

    I worked at Jani-King full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Car, gas card. Could be a decent place to work if you did not have to compete with your own sales manager taking leads.

    Cons

    Regional Director does not want a sales rep in his office b/c that is taking away sales/money from him. High turn-over rate with sales staff and every other position other than the Regional manager. They have had 6+ sales reps this year.

    Advice to Management

    pointless
