    Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate 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.

    Territory Account Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Mason, OH

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Cintas (Mason, OH) in September 2012.

    Interview

    I had 4 interviews. A Phone interview, an interview with HR, an interview with the reporting manager, and then with the Senior Manager. All canned questions, and relatively easy. They take you a tour of the department and let you shadow someone for about 30 minutes. That's usually the indicator that you'll be getting an offer soon.

    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.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Cintas in August 2012.

    Interview

    Talked with recrutier over the phone, had an interview with one of the service managers and then a follow up interview with the general manager. they had me come in to take a personality test and then i was offered the position. It was quite lengthy. both of the interviews were pretty casual and common questions but they did follow up with your answers so be sure not to exagerate and build yourself up too much too much because they will call you out on it and they will apply your answers to future questions, but nothing too intimidating
