    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at Cintas.

    Interview Details

    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

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Cintas.

    Interview Details

    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 Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Cintas in March 2015.

    Interview Details

    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.   View 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

    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.
