    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Cintas (Harahan, LA).

    Interview

    Not difficult, 3 hrs long. Place was close by and the process took exactly 3 hrs as advertised. The interviews got more difficult as the day went on, and the questions got more specific as the interview process went on. Employees were proud of their past jobs

    Easy to apply for and hear back from them, but there are many rounds of interviewing and they are very slow to find dates that work for their schedules. They were friendly and showed you around the different parts of the facility.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Cintas (Columbus, OH) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Comprehensive interview. Begins with HR rep, then a couple other regional employees, then a GM. They do not support MBAs or go beyond undergrad degrees. Everyone is very amiable and I never felt like I was being made to feel uncomfortable to see if I could handle pressure. High retention.

    • Standard, situation questions. Pretty laid back, they allow you to skip questions and not feel strongly penalized for it.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining
