Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 3 January 2019
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.

Some supervisors are poor at giving instructions. New people come and go but are not properly trained. Employees are expected to train new people which I think is stupid because each person does their jobs differently.

Since Cintas acquired us, it's been quite the disaster. All talented employees left for better jobs. Only the ones who couldn't find a job are still here . I was demoted as soon Cintas took over so they can save money. Management extremely poor and HR incompetent and dishonest...spying on us all the time.
