    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Cintas.

    Interview Details

    Interview process was fairly easy, have two more lined up next week. Recruiter told me, if you make through all the interviews, you're probably a great fit. Reall conversational during the interview and it was easy going for the most part. They also got back in a timely matter, in regards to if you were moving on to the next interviews. Nice people. Dont have offer yet because I'm still going through the process.

    Services Manager First Aid and Safety Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Sacramento, CA (US)
    Anonymous Employee in Sacramento, CA (US)
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Cintas in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    Recruited online by a third party recruiter.
    Interviewed with recruiter over the phone.
    They sent an email with assessments to complete which take about 2.5 hrs.
    Called by General Manager to set up interview at the office.
    Interviewed with the GM who was 30 minutes late and then I was lowballed into interviewing for a rep position only because I didn't have industry experience and he was concerned that the team would not respect a person from an outside industry that hasn't had the same experience as the reps they manage. When I asked him why he doesn't just hire from within instead of wasting our time, he said that the reps make more than the managers do and it's hard to ask them to step down in pay and up in responsibility. I continued to remind him that I am educated and qualified to manage the team, but he continued to push the rep position at me with unbelievable metrics and false math.
    When I was asked about my attention to detail, he asked me what color shirt the receptionist was wearing: I correctly answered purple. His response to me was "way off, not even close." I asked him if he was sure about that and he replied, "I don't know. You tell me." This question had nothing to do with anything. When I left his office, I noticed that the receptionist had on a purple shirt and I pointed at it and smiled at him on my way out.
    If you want to be a manager in the Cintas Sacramento branch, you have to be a rep first, but they won't tell you that.

    Reasons for Declining

    I am a decorated manager. I have an education and a job that currently pays more than what they offered. I am a higher caliber manager to be demoted to a rep level so quickly and will not throw away years of hard work in the crucible of part time work and exceeding goals to be marked down there again.

    Management Trainee Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Cintas.

    Interview Details

    I saw the Ad for the position and I applied to it through glassdoor, the reply was very immediate. The very next day, there was a voicemail telling me to call back to schedule an interview. I did and it was booked for weeks end. The interview process was very stringent as the interviewer seldomly asked questions relating to the position. I was told to expect a call back but I wasn't really contacted, so I called them back and left a message. I receive a call some time later stating they had gone with another person and that was all.
