Being a sales representative for over 5 years here is what I've experienced.

Sales managers are mandated to interview 3 new people a week even when they are not hiring. Keeps potential good new hires guessing if they are going to get a job.

Poor compensation pay

Targets in sales unrealistic to hit PC

To get promoted you need to pretend everything is great and that you have the best job in the world

Sales salary below standard.

3rd paycheck of every month in sales in almost zero

Need to rely on the competency of your Sales manager to approve expenses on time or you get a zero paycheck every 3rd week.

Sales schedule start at 7:30a - 5pm

Managers only look at the sales numbers and when top performers stop producing they ignore and go to next rep who is the flavour of the week.

Service reps are told by managers to short customers and to throw additional items or products on a bill to grow the business without client knowing.

Huge Price increases over CPI and hope customer doesn't notice.

Cintas bought a major competitor in North America which impacts selling new business

If you are a top performer and want to move to a different division outside your current role they will hold you back and make your job harder. You are as good as your last week.


To become part of this prestigious cult you need to wear a Black or navy suit, white shirt and blue or red tie and clean shaven .


Cintas has constant production and supply issues in which make selling impossible.

I was encouraged to use disgusting sales tactics involving suggesting that a potential customer's family members might die in front of them if our products were not present to help at their business. I was regularly kicked out of businesses because of the actions of previous people in my role. I've never worked for a more unethical manager.

New employees on day one are given a copy of a book called "The Spirit is the difference," a reference to their corporate culture. They also use terms like "partners" to describe any Cintas employee. This is all nothing more than one big elaborate charade. Management is very toxic and will work you to the bone, nothing you do will ever be enough. If you are not part of the "old boys club" then you will never be promoted or make it in this company. Any sort of free thinking and creativity is shunned by upper management so unless you want to be a mindless drone, do not work here.

I was "fortunate" enough to work for both the sales and service sides of the organization and witnessed many unethical business practices happen here. One such practice was the annual 3-5% price increase stipulation found in every service contract. On a yearly basis, I witnessed Cintas try at every opportunity to increase price by over 20% to existing customers, and then hope they would not notice the increase. If they did not notice, they would continue to charge these prices. If they did notice, instead of correcting the mistake and issuing credits, management would fight with the customer and then threaten them with the whole "you signed a contract and legal ramifications will be enforced if you try to leave." Absolutely terrible customer service. Cintas would even threaten small mom and pop shop customers legally if they ever tried to leave their contract, even if it was for perfectly valid reasons.


Overall I am disgusted to have worked for Cintas and taken part in such unethical and immoral
