    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Cintas in April 2015.

    Interview

    It was fairly easy. They asked about significant accomplishments both in and outside of school, my current GPA and short and long-term goals personal and professionally. They also asked for specific stories and examples of leadership and time-management skills at the different positions listed on my resume. There were no knowledge nor trick questions.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at Cintas (Harahan, LA).

    Interview

    Not difficult, 3 hrs long. Place was close by and the process took exactly 3 hrs as advertised. The interviews got more difficult as the day went on, and the questions got more specific as the interview process went on. Employees were proud of their past jobs

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Cintas.

    Interview

    I was referred by a former colleague. The recruiter calls to set up a phone interview. They then call back for a 30 minute situation based interview..."tell me about a time...". Once that interview was over, if they like you, they set up a formal interview with the sales manager followed by a ride along. After that the next steps would be an interview with the Director and VP of Sales.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Cintas (Rochester, NY) in March 2015.

    Interview

    This was a first interview, by the Production Manager. This makes more sense than interviewing with HR first. The Production Manager has a better idea of his staffing needs than HR. He was very attentive and took notes when I answered questions. He also took me on a tour of the facility, which was very well run.

    Interview Questions

    • There was a lot of emphasis on reliability. I have an idea this may be an issue with them in regards to past employees.   1 Answer
    • There was also an emphasis on safety. He asked for a specific example of when I witnessed an employee behaving in an unsafe manner. Be prepared for this.   Answer Question
