    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Cintas (Maple Grove, MN).

    Interview

    You have to go through four or five different interviews with different people. They are normally managers and they ask questions about yourself and compare them to what you submitted earlier. After each interview they meet with other managers and discuss whether or not to continue the interview process with you. Basically just a show. You have to be well groomed and dressed appropriately. Takes a long time. The final interview was with the GM and took over 2 hours.

    Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Newburgh, NY

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Cintas (Newburgh, NY) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Standard interview. I had to go through all of the standard questions that an employer might ask like what are my strengths and weaknesses. I also was asked what I would bring to the company versus another candidate. They really didn't throw anything at me that I couldn't respond to quickly, do a little bit of research on the company before the interview and you should be good to go.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Cintas.

    Interview

    Went through a Series of 4 interviews spanning over 5 weeks. Started with a phone screen, then went and spoke with a supervisor, then went on a ride along, and finally a service manager. I really wanted the Job, but because I had a few jobs that made more money than what they would have been offering, they didn't offer me the position. So my advice to anyone that wants a position like this, is to LIE. Company says they want the truth and that they want set a standard of honesty and open door style of things. They Lie so you should too. If you have had a job more that 40 Grand. Lie and say you didn't. Good Luck.

    Interview Questions

    • Why do you want to work here? How much money did you make at other jobs? Would you be ok making a whole lot less money than other jobs?   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Cintas (Lawrenceville, GA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    The process was not a difficult panel interview, but was an individual that primarily asked situational questions. There were some "get acquainted" questions so that the interviewer could get to know you. Rather relaxed towards the end as he told me about his career with the company and his respect for the company.
