    The hiring process consisted of 4 rounds of interviewing. All of the questions were behavioral based..."Tell me about a time where....". Cintas has a meticulous hiring process to ensure that they are hiring "A" players that they can keep and retain.

    Management Trainee Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Cintas.

    Interview Details

    It was a quick first interview on campus. The HR manager spoke quickly and asked a lot of questions in a row, barely pausing to let me answer or digest my responses. Then, she left some time at the end for a current Management Trainee, who also sat in on the interview, to talk about her experiences so far in the program. She then let me ask some questions. The way she answered my questions seemed like she was trying to convince me to work for Cintas, more than I was trying to convince her to hire me. Other reviews of this program on Glassdoor are accurate- I have a friend in the program who told me the same exact things and does not like the program at all.

    Management Trainee Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Cintas in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    Initially contacted them through a recruiter at my college and I had an interview later that day at their booth. They followed up with me within a couple weeks and I went to their facility in the area for further interviews. I had 5 different interviews with different managers throughout the day. They took me out to lunch as well, which seemed like another interview in itself. All of the questions asked were behavioral STAR questions, besides the questions about my resume. Be prepared for a long day, with the potential for 5 or more interviews.

    New Account Installation Specialist Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Cintas in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview process is long. I was referred by another employee. First there was online application process followed by a phone interview with an HR associate. Then there was a long, detailed and in-person interview with a Sales Manager followed by another in-person interview with the GM. After that was an all day ride-along and a follow up a few days later. As the interviews progressed, there was a change of focus on the position being a segue to Outside Sales. The HR Manger then checked my references followed by a background check and a urinalysis drug screen. I was called and came back in for an offer in person for 5k less than was communicated to me several times during multiple interviews. When asked about the discrepancy, the sales manager making the offer acted like he hadn't said the previous base offer and would not negotiate.

    Customer Service Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Leandro, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Leandro, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Cintas in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    Submitted my resume online and received a call rather quickly. After a phone interview, I was asked to come in for a face to face interview.

    I felt it was a huge waste of time. The lady interviewing me kept texting and taking personal phone calls and asked standard textbook interview questions. Before I could finish my answer, she cut me off and went to her next question.

    During the middle of the process, she asked me if I was interested in an Accounts Payable position. I told her I didn't have concrete knowledge and she said she was willing to train me if I really wanted to give it a shot.

    In closing, she explained the perks of the job, including the parties and the football games they attend. She was rushing to finish my interview because there was a potluck starting in 10 minutes...

    Not even 3 hours after the interview, I received an email saying I was not selected for the position. Wow!
