    Current Employee - SSR in Greenville, NC (US)

    I have been working at Cintas full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    True work-life balance with a 4 day work week, 2 weeks paid vacation, and the best benefit package in comparison to other companies. GREAT local management team! GREAT customers that you form relationships with!

    Cons

    Having to endure constant griping by coworkers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As with every job out there, much of your job satisfaction comes down to the people you work beside and your local management team. From that angle, my management team has changed tremendously; and THAT has made all the difference. Having the ability to communicate EFFECTIVELY with anyone requires trust and a sense of teamwork. The management team at my location allows me to do my job on a day to day basis without micromanaging every decision I make. In the last 18 months, my job performance has improved dramatically because of that level of communication and trust. I won't hide it! I love these guys!
        As an SSR, that level of trusted communication also translates to my customers. Over 8 years with Cintas, I have come to develop great, positive, and rewarding relationships with my customers. My customers are always aware of the fact that when they sign an agreement with "Cintas", they really sign an agreement with ME! They know that if any issues come up regarding their account, I will handle it. This is sometimes a challenging and daunting process given that there are days that I feel like a fireman putting out multiple issues every day. That being said, I love my customers.
         My attitude towards this company has turned around over the years....towards the better!

    Pros

    Flexibility in my hours, route. I was given freedom in handling my own customers/route

    Pay isn't the greatest, but the benefits make up for some of that

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't dictate every decision from the corporate level all the way down, let the GMs handle their own facilities

    I have been working at Cintas full-time

    Pros

    Company has a great objective: We will exceed our customers expectation to maximize the long term value of Cintas for its shareholders and working partners!

    Cons

    Not too many cons as I am only five months into this positions. Some working partners not pulling their own weight, but with the position being a part commission position, they are only hurting themselves and potentially helping others who are willing to pick up the accounts that the other cannot get to.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    New location management is learning on the go. There is a small disconnect because of that newness...but seems to be smoothing out. Look within before out for management positions.

    I worked at Cintas full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Coworkers were awesome.
    Training was top notch and extensive.
    The job was cut and dry. If you are a people person and good at sales, you will do well.
    Looks great on the resume.

    Cons

    No cons that I can think of, except there were days where hours could be long. Definitely not a 9-5 job, more like 50-55 hours/week.
