    Facility Services Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Kennesaw, GA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Kennesaw, GA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Cintas.

    Interview Details

    Interview was laid back and professional. Cintas used to go on referrals, but now you have to apply through their website - boo! I went through a referral so it was easy. Not sure what it's like for those submitting resumes that have to go through computer systems and hr before getting to a manager.

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Cintas.

    Interview Details

    5 interviews and no guarantee for a job. A big waste of time since they will lie about the wages. they will ask you a bunch of questions about why you want to work here and they make it seem like they pay more than average, but it's actually far below based on the strenuous labor and unsafe work environment.

    10.50-12.50 an hour. you would have to be stupid to say you would take less than the range they offer.

    Customer Service Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Denver, CO
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Denver, CO
    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    2 week process that consisted of 3 interviews then I was asked to come in for half a day for a "ride along" which I was promised compensation for regardless if I was offered the job or not. The first interview was one on one and very professional. The 2nd interview consisted of two people interviewing which one seemed interested the other did not. The third interview was a phone interview. Overall I thought I had aced all three. The ride along was a mess and consisted of me first watching a phone agent doing her daily job. She was 15 minutes late and a very poor at trying to train.then I was thrown on phone calls for 2 hours which I handled great under the circumstances. Was totally expecting to get this job then was EMAILED a rejection notice and never compensated! VERY UNPROFESSIONAL! I tried to contract my original interview contact to get feedback and after 4 attempts finally have up. Salary for position was in the $16-17 range.

    Facility Services Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Cintas in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I found the interview process very detailed. Cintas is interviewing you and looking for a solid person who they think will be with the company for 2-3 years. Round one and the ride along was pretty standard and moderately easy if you have a brain and a drive for sales. Round two in Greensboro was much more difficult, as that guy flushes out the weak.

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

    Interview Details

    Applied through their website. Received email to submit a video interview. Have never done that before but it must have went well as they brought me in for a one on one interview. Felt good about that interview as they scheduled me for a route ride with a driver. Route ride went well. Got along with the driver and I jumped in and helped him the entire route. After the route ride the person I interviewed with told me that they would call me to come back and meet more some managers. The same day I was expecting the phone call I received a form type email from their HR dept stating that I had not been selected for the job. Not sure what happened between the route ride and the day I received that email. Didn't seem fair with no explanation.

    Scholar Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    I signed up for the initial interview the day after a Career Fair at my university. I spoke with two General Managers and was told about the company, the position, etc. Then I answered about 6 behavioral questions. It went well, and two weeks later I was invited to go in for a second interview. This one was with two HR Managers, and it consisted of behavioral and math questions. Then, four days later I was asked to go out to a local Cintas Plant for a tour and a Round Robin Interview. I went, spoke with nine people (three groups of 3), and answered even more behavioral and math questions. None of it was really hard since I have a lot of experiences that I can tailor to various questions, and mostly I felt like they were looking for personality and ambition. Everyone was super nice and friendly. The interviews had a conversational tone.
