I applied online and the process took 4 days - interviewed at Cintas in April 2013.
Interview Details – They emailed me first. Set up a time to meet within 3 days after I applied. The interviewer/manager didn't seem too friendly or interested in my background or experience. It looked as though they needed someone really quick to fulfill the job, so everything seemed "shotgun" including the questions.
Interview Question – "What was one policy or thing about your last job that you didn't like" Answer Question
I applied through college or university and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Cintas in April 2013.
Interview Details –
I was first contacted by the incumbent HR Manager via LinkedIn to ask if I would be interested in this opportunity with the company; after looking into the job description, we set up a phone interview to talk about the position more in detail.
The phone interview was pretty basic, just inquiring about my background, describing the position, and asking a few behavioral questions. A week later I met on-site with the Plant Manager for a tour and second interview.
The second interview was all behavior-based questions again, and went very well. I was then shown around the plant and always was open to asking questions about Cintas, the plant, and the position.
I was invited for a third interview a week leader with the Regional HR Manager; again, behavioral-based questions, and this one was pretty brief, seeing as I had two people answer most of my questions before this point.
Since I was the first person they interviewed, it was several weeks before I heard from them again, and I was invited to lunch by my first two interviewers to re-engage with me/ask any lingering questions. I was pretty hopeful at this point, since the meeting was pretty personal.
A week later I received a rejection e-mail, and was a bit disappointed investing two months into the process, but overall it was a pretty positive experience.
I was told by the second interviewer that the way the Cintas interview process is set up, the managers do not speak about candidates between interviews, so the final decision is when they all collaborate together to chose the best fit.
Interview Question – Tell me about a time when you had to utilize your network to achieve an objective. Answer Question
Interviewed at Cintas
Interview Details – They interviewed me on campus, which went well. Took an online test that asked me questions related to math problems, reading, writing, etc. It wasn't too bad. They called me for a next interview, but were not going to pay for my traveling expenses. I drove 4 hours to the location for the interview to last an hour and get a generic email that night saying I did not advance onto the next interview. Cheap company because they aren't willing to pay for your transportation to interview you.
