Rough days, pressured to Sell, great co-workers
Sales and Service Representative (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – March 14, 2016
Day consists in customer interactions and service that could include Linen products, mats, restroom supplies and so on.
At Cintas I learned great techniques in handling all kinds of customers and situations.
You'll find all kinds of managers at Cintas, and god knows we've got managers of managers, and more supervisors and wait, another manager. Within this diversity of high tiered peeps, you'll find people that want to look good for the corp folks, whatever takes, managers who have no idea what's going on, managers that have an idea, supervisors that really care to do their best, and a general manager that's overloaded with Corp's Koolaid (I get it, you have to).
Hardest part of the job is to handle customers that are nothing close to easy, you'll get them all. Price increases are ridiculously high, but the industry almost dictates this barely legal price gauging situation.
4 day work week is nice, but remember, this is a very, very physical job, so your first day off will consist in you trying to remember what your back felt like before you said the I do.
Pay is not bad, but somewhat on the lower side compared to some of our competitors. Benefits seem decent, never really had an issue with it. Matching 401 is good as well.
I honestly do not recommend the SSR position, but I know some would so hey, best of luck if you decide taking the challenge.
Good Coworkers, good benefits, 4 day Work week
Physical, Corporate world at its best.
